You’ve never seen anything like Monsura is Waiting, but you might find something you like in this strange, campy short film. Taking place on “one helluva night in Bridgeport,” Monsura tells the story of two aging showgirls. They perform a nightly show that revolves around Monsura, a giant moth monster inspired by Japanese kaiju movies. In their song, they call out to Monsura to come and take them away from the cruel world. Betty, played by Nell Gwynn, believes Monsura will come soon. Dot, played by Amy Staats, isn’t so sure. She’s dealing with real-world stuff like rent and bills, while Betty tells her not to worry. Monsura will come.The 15-minute short doesn’t let on whether Monsura is real or not until the very end. Even then, it’s semi-ambiguous because let’s be honest, that’s not what the film is really about. At its core, it’s a family dramedy. Betty and Dot believe in what they’re doing, but faith alone isn’t enough for Dot anymore. Dot works up the courage to confront her sister and take control of her own life. Possibly at the exact wrong moment.The cast does a fantastic job. Staats is perfect as a woman who lost the plot at some point and can’t figure out where. You can see the stress and disillusionment build over the course of the film until it explodes once the sisters are in the dressing room. Gwynn as Betty, on the other hand, is the diva we all want to imagine ourselves as. Life hasn’t worked out the way she planned so far, but that hasn’t shaken her confidence. She knows she’s destined for great things, and she makes sure the world knows it too. Only in her case, those great things involve a giant moth shooting fire from its eyes.The cinematography and production design add to the fun. The bright color palate gives the whole film an anachronistic, otherworldly feel. The camerawork draws you into the world, almost making you feel like a part of this strange Bridgeport nightclub scene. Add in some strikingly artful scene transitions, and you’ve got yourself on good looking short.Monsura comes from the minds of playwright David Johnston and stage director Kevin Newbury and has been hit on the film festival circuit. It won Best Fantasy Film at the Mexico International Film Festival, Best Cinematography at the Williamsburg Independent Film Festival, and Best Cult Short at Queen City Film Festival. Monsura is Waiting is a simple, honest story with a fun, campy sci-fi twist. It’s definitely worth your time.You can learn more about the film at its website, or check it out on iTunes.
