Includes a Q&A with the director.

Abandoned houses filled with useless old junk. Empty streets in deserted suburbs. And why do the airplanes seem to only be heading west? "Baseball" is a cryptic and hypnotic fever-dream of a world out of sync.

Like picture postcards from a parallel universe, a series of static and surreal vignettes reveal the lives of a loose-knit group of teenagers trying to find sense in emptiness.

The feature film debut of F. Theodore Elliott, "Baseball" offers a compelling, challenging and surreal cinematic experience not to be missed.

Born in 1989 in Auckland, New Zealand, F. Theodore Elliott studied Script Writing and Directing at South Seas Film and Television School and worked odd jobs in the film industry while writing his own script in his free time. Feeling that these jobs were not going to develop into making his own films, and inspired by the low-budget Dogme school of filmmaking (films made without expensive sets or lighting equipment, shot on cheap, consumer-grade digital cameras), Theodore began working on his own feature. He bought an assortment of unusual cameras and sound equipment and started writing the series of interconnected vignettes that would eventually grow into "Baseball."

Written and shot piecemeal over the course of over two years and starring an ensemble cast of young Kiwi actors, "Baseball" combines Theodore's love of filmmakers such as Wim Wenders, Jim Jarmusch and Yasujiro Ozu, with his own "abandoned suburbia" aesthetic.
