Introduction
Elevator Moods Movement, a short film movement in New York, was first presented in the World Premiere section of the 1st AISFF in 2003 and then invited to the Sundance Film Festival. Now three years after, the sequel to that film is presented in the World Premiere of AISFF 2006. In 1995, several Danish directors went against established film making system and declared a new film making system called Dogma 95. Influenced from Dogma 95, “Elevator Moods Movement” is also a new film-making movement with ten rules of Elevator Mood Inspection Manifesto. First of all, one should make a film in an elevator. Elevator Mood Inspection Commission including Ethan Spigland, Andrew Leitch, Alexandra Tolk and Andrew Nahem presents thirteen short films. These episodes show a day in the courthouse of Betaville, a fictional city. Betaville is such a small city that citizens receive a verdict in the same place with criminals, and even the mortuary is in the courthouse. For fourteen minutes, these literally ‘short’ thirteen films will show witty episodes in a new and experimental structure.
