Sarasota Half in Dream
Sarasota Half in Dream is a feature-length Surrealist documentary about dead turtles, crab swarms, decaying resorts, and microscopic histories. Streaming online for free.

This is a very small-budget artsy documentary a friend and I made! After a small festival run, we've put it online for free.

We shot our explorations into the abandoned golf courses, factories, and resorts of Sarasota, Florida and spoke to local youths who are using them for new and strange purposes. What would the Surrealists and Situationists think of a suburban, subtropical tourist town? What goes on in a storage unit in the dead of night? What is the afterlife of a decommissioned train car? What ghosts haunt a ruined hotel? What is the life cycle of a city? When will waters wash it all away?

There was no way to tell you I came from MF, but I purchased a copy this morning. Nice work!

A major update: This film is now exclusively available on the new leftist, worker-owned streaming video platform Means TV! It's a dream come true to be a part of this project.
