*Waxwing*, a music video with commentary by John Feith

By all accounts, the Sunday, May 13 screening of short films created for the
spring Kabaret at Wis-Kino <http://www.wis-kino.com/> was an entertaining
one, all nine completed entries convincingly incorporating the required
theme of "complicated." This rather abstract element was announced the
previous Friday at the kick-off
screening<http://www.thedailypage.com/movies/article.php?article=6596>to
the biannual festival organized by the local group dedicated to short
films. A two-day frenzy of filmmaking followed, capped by the second
screening at the Orpheum Stage Door theater.

Feith<http://www.caculo.com/>
Inspired by a poem in Vladimir Nabokov's *Pale Fire*, music video
focuses upon cedar waxwings eating the flowers of a crabapple tree in the UW
Arboretum. This serves as the backdrop to "running commentary by a deranged
person," explains Feith, who also performed the music for it. "This
commentator thinks that this video is brilliant," he quips in conclusion.
