Lone Star States

Otis Under Sky

Director: Anlo Sepulveda


World Premiere |  Narrative Feature |  USA |  2010 |  HDCAM |  77 MIN


Otis is a socially inept savant who spends his days in front of a computer researching Eastern religions, creating web-art, and vlogging. He goes to a local show to video tape “real people” when Ursula, a kleptomaniac womanizer who longs for her girlfriend’s return from South America, steps in front of his lens. Otis falls into unrequited love at first sight and Ursula finds Otis' awkwardness intriguing. After a brief, surreal, non-physical romance, Ursula’s girlfriend returns. Otis’ experience with love and loss inspires an internet art concept that connects people spiritually.
