About this project

In our ongoing quest to create new and exciting flavor combinations The Borscht Film Festival brings you "OTTO AND THE ELECTRIC EEL", a short film collaboration between Waverly Films and Otto von Schirach that is NOT a music video.

To get a rough idea of the raw and beautiful energy we are preparing to unleash on the world: you can check out the work of Waverly FIlms here http://waverlyfilms.com/ and explore the magic of Otto von Schirach at http://www.ottovonschirach.com/

In order to visually represent the process and themes of von Schirach's music "OTTO AND THE ELECTRIC EEL" will employ the metaphor of fine cooking, and a panoply of unlikely props including a spontaneously extant flying eel.

The Borscht Film Festival wants to make YOU a part of non-music video history.
