BRIDE OF FINKLESTEIN
Comedy Short/USA/2015/21 minutes
Written & directed by Michael Schlesinger

When their car runs out of gas on a dark and stormy night, Biffle and Shooster make their way to the "kestle" of mad scientist Dr. Finklestein (Baron), who's about to create a new bride--for himself. Despite being aided by a hunchbacked assistant and a gorilla, he still needs someone to help complete the experiment. And guess who that someone is.

This uplifting film is about a group of Jewish senior citizens who celebrate the weekly Sabbath at the local Wendys fast food restaurant in Palm Desert. It is a story of rediscovering the joys of friendship and community again in older age, and in the longing for ritual, however unorthodox it may appear.
