Eleven Roses 02

Canadian filmmaker Pedram Goshtasbpour, for some reason, describes his short film  Eleven Roses (aka E1even Roses) (2008) as a “romantic comedy,” though it is more aptly seen as a 98 lb. weakling tale gone horribly wrong. Pedram, who is someone with whom I’ve had a productive, long-standing correspondence with, shows himself to be a expert filmmaker, with considerable comedic and dramatic flair; the (mostly) black-and-white film effectively mixes CGI and traditional 2D animation and is something I can easily recommend. (The film can be viewed here.)

    This film was my inspiration to write my song “Eleven Roses” when I saw this years ago on Image Union on PBS. Lyrically, it’s not really combined with the theme of the movie, but it’s what got me writing that night!
