    Reality....What's That?

    Three-Cornered Hat
    A man encounters a Spanish pirate who is digging a hole in the man's lawn in search of treasure. So what's the big deal, you say? Did we forget to mention that it takes place in present-day Berkeley, Calif.? Directed by Bay Area filmmaker Tony Liano.
    Length: 7 minutes

    Treachery of Images
    This is a journey into reality - all of them. A very original and suspenseful drama that forces us to examine what's real and what's an illusion.
    Length: 18 minutes

    Within all of us live multiple personalities. When the world of our Dreamer collides with that of our Realist, the Dreamer is, fatefully, doomed. But the real tragedy is our failure to recognize that the one really destroying us is another, overlooked, resident - our Doubter.
    Length: 15 minutes

    You say you like to watch? Never has an audience been so brought to task for their voyeurism as in this short. The film forces an apathetic audience to examine their own responsibility for the lies they consume and readily obey. Prepare yourself for a roller coaster ride of gravity-defying camera choreography.
    Length: 14 minutes
