An astronaut’s glove drifts through solar systems and across galaxies. A grieving police officer shimmies his way through a eulogy for his dearly departed dance instructor mother. A mesmerizing, phantasmagoric VHS tapestry plays behind a rising sonic tide of sinister synth sounds. The insanely individual independents gathered together for Generation Lost are a constellation of rising stars in the Indie Grits film firmament. For an hour and a half of intergalactically funny, wrenching, exceedingly well-crafted crowdpleasers, look no further than this crop of stupendous shorts.
