At the serpentine intersection of Degrassi and Wade Davis, you’ll find the dazzling 50-minute Blondes In The Jungle. Lev Kalman and Whitney Horn’s 48-minute debut is a dazzling “tropical cyclone” – a metaphysical stoner comedy about a trio of spoiled WASP brats searching for the Fountain of Youth in the wilds of Honduras, shot on location. Color-saturated and empty-headedly hilarious, Kalman and Horn’s film is an deep dive into pampered ignorance and a wealth of 16mm riches.
“Blondes In The Jungle is a cheerful, genial and strange comedy, yet it’s so good-natured and screwy that it’s easy to go along with all of the improbable happenings – and there’s certainly plenty of those. Plus, the scenery is absolutely beautiful to look at with gorgeous cinematography by Horn.” – Bad Lit
“Long story short, it’s amazing.” -Flavorwire
“We think of ourselves as Eric Rohmer if he were retarded.” -Whitney Horn
