Multi-hyphenate Leah Shore (Filmmaker Magazine’s “25 New Faces of Independent Film” 2013) returns to SXSX with a new live-action short PUSS, their fifth film programmed at the festival.
Loosely based on the filmmaker’s own experience, PUSS is a surreal, scandalous, hilarious, and extremely relatable story of Gabriela, who is spending the pandemic locked down alone, bored, and thirsty.
Gabriela’s search for close human contact only leads to frustration – until her pent-up desire bubbles over and explodes in a delirious fever dream.
