Saute Ma Ville

Saute Ma Ville channels all the despondency, destructiveness and enraged obnoxiousness of teenage girls into a tight thirteen minute sequence consisting of our heroine (below) destroying a kitchen as she attempts to cook, clean and polish her shoes (and, as she attempts to feed and care for it, kill one cat). A miniature Ackerman gem of hostile domestic surfaces and combustible (literally) female energy, it does indeed "vibrate ... with a sort of David Lynch-ian menace," as Dan Callahan writes in his brief interview with Ackerman here.
