After a successful premiere at the Dances With Films Festival on June 4, the short film Hold the Mayo will screen at 7PM in Camelot Theatre on Thursday, June 23, as part of the 4th Annual Palm Springs International ShortFest.
WRITER/DIR/PROD: Jeffrey Williams
CAST: Saul Herckis, Damian Samuels
ORIGINAL SCORE: Charles Griffin
Sam is a beleaguered sandwich store clerk who is having a very bad day. Then he has a life-altering encounter with Frank – a force of nature who believes the customer is always right. Horribly, horribly right. A gruesome comedy-horror about words that cannot be unspoken, and sandwiches that cannot be unmade. Profound philosophical questions lead to graphic consequences, all centered around the world’s most foul condiment.
This is my second collaboration with Jeffrey Williams.
