With the ongoing interruption of film festivals across the world, a number of filmmakers have taken it upon themselves to release a variety of their films on the internet, in various different ways. Add filmmaker Theodore Collatos to that ever-expanding list as he has decided to release his last three short films on Vimeo since the festival tour of his latest documentary, Queen of Lapa – co-directed with his long-time producer and wife, Carolina Monnerat – has been indefinitely put on hold.
In the meantime, you’ll be able to view the last three of his short films, made in and around the production time period of Queen of Lapa. The shortest of which, Patrice in Search of Love from 2018, stars the aforementioned Monnerat as “a philosophical young woman, searching for love at the end of the world.” Fight Science, also from 2018, is “an exclusive look at the intense business of boxing with world champion phenom Errol Spence Jr. and former world champion Chris Algieri, featuring eccentric promoters, press pundits and fans of the fight game.” And, if you’ve seen his 2017 film, Tormenting the Hen, you’ll recognize several actors in the short film, Not Make Dreams Your Master, which appears to utilize some unused scenes from the theater group of Tormenting the Hen that are folded into and used as a counterweight to a group of country folk reading and discussing poetry.

Eavesdrop on the cultural mash-up between a country group and a multicultural trio, who discuss everything from philosophy, gender, race and confronting the void.
These look like three great short films to past the time under quarantine.
