*Online Premiere* Three girls drive around Hollywood without paying much attention to the road. This short short by Christian Meola satirizes the trope of L.A. girls hanging out of convertibles, young, beautiful and rich. Just like they do in the movies, or music videos, they joyously reach toward the palm trees above, or lift up their sunglasses and stare at the camera lustily in slo-mo over thumping beats. Meola strips away everything else, leaving only the empty montage — a funny but unsettling effect. As the girls begin to focus more on their phones than the road, particularly a Snapchat filter that allows them to clock their speed, the joyride starts to get dangerous. Meola recently starred in “Christian's First Cigarette,” by Justin Zuckerman, another experimental quick pic deconstructing iconic American imagery, as a man chain-smoking cigarettes. The new one is in the same vein, not concerned with narrative or character-building, instead focused entirely on raw imagery, steered with a light but jagged comic touch.
