Its Not You; Its Me
Staying home and brooding on Valentines Day usually backfires, often in the form of ice cream overdoses and accidentally watching an abundance of Hugh Grant films. An antidote: Its Not You; Its Me, a screening of short films at Block 7 Wine Company, hosted by Aurora Picture Show, all of which deal with the shitty side of love. Theres 25 Random Things I Did During My Big Fat Lesbian Depression, Chris Russos hilarious yet completely relatable account of the measures one woman took to get over a broken heart; Mitchell Roses Deere John, in which a dancing leading man performs an affectionate duet with a massive yellow piece of construction equipment; and Don Hertzfeldts Ah, LAmour, a jaunty if violent cartoon in which a poor stick figure is maimed, shot and decapitated in his quest to find a woman. No happily-ever-afters here but then again, no aging, foppish Brits, either. 5 p.m. Sunday. Block 7 Wine Company, 720 Shepherd. For information, call 713-868-2101 or visit www.aurorapictureshow.org.
