PUFF 2018: "Whimsy & Hester"

the farsighted

Whimsy & Hester was one of the best shorts at the festival, directed by Jeffrey Garcia who, based on this short alone, I might describe as Wes Anderson on too much acid (and I imagine might be insulted by this comparison). It’s about conjoined twins that want to lose their virginity before prom night, and it’s both tasteless and totally endearing in ways I couldn’t imagine a movie really being. It’s very funny, very strange, and made me want to see everything this guy has ever made.
