AAFF Shorts @ Top of the Park

Join the Ann Arbor Film Festival as we screen short films from the 49th festival before Top of the Park's Thursday main feature films.

This week it's all about the music. Check out U.S. Girls' music video for their hit single, "Red Ford Radio" along with "Classically Trained" a music video for hip-hop emcee and producer Clavius Crates, featuring Silas Green. Both films will screen before eighties film favorite, TOP GUN.

This video for U.S. Girls was created entirely on the flatbed of a black and white photocopier, employing replacement animation and collage to create a hypnotic meditation on the mythology of the American woman.
