Brothers David and Nathan Zellner began making shorts together in the 1990s, and their latest film Damsel competed at Berlin. In Kid-Thing, a deviant 10-year-old tomboy spends her days engaging in fully destructive behavior until she discovers an old woman stuck at the bottom of a well. The movie was described in Screen Daily as “backwoods weirdness with a pop-art sensibility.”


Synopsis

Brothers David and Nathan Zellner began making short films together in the 1990s as David was attending film school at the University of Texas. Their absurdist, hilarious, and yet deeply resonant short films, often funded by Austin Film Society grants, became known on the festival circuit. The brothers then moved onto features and have released four to date, the first two of which were low-budget efforts involving many Austin-based collaborators. In Kid-Thing a deviant ten-year-old tomboy spends her days engaging in fully destructive behavior until she discovers an old woman stuck at the bottom of a well.  It was described in Screen Daily as “backwoods weirdness with a pop-art sensibility.”
