Sundance 2024 - Boi de Conchas and Thirstygirl
Listen now
Today we're covering two Sundance Film Festival narrative short films, Boi de Conchas and Thirstygirl. In Boi de Conchas, a teenager is searching for her missing sister as local teens are mysteriously being turned into oxen. Director Daniel Barosa explains why death metal was the perfect sound for this story, telling dark themes through fiction, and the special meaning behind the film's location in Brazil. Thirstygirl is a short film about sisterhood and sex addiction. Director Alexandra Qin shares her own personal struggle with sex addiction, why this film was particularly difficult to cast, and the benefit of choreographing sexual scenes with an intimacy coordinator.
