Below you will find the trailer for A Thousand Empty Glasses (which has been called both beautiful and disturbing by none other than Sir Ian McKellen), along with trailers for some other exceptional films that I screened at this year's festival. But first, here's a link to Gus Van Sant's 1978 short film The Discipline of DE, an adaptation of William Burroughs' short story Do Easy (and my personal favourite of his shorts screened at the festival).
