Prom Night: A Litany of Sexy Lovers at the Prom

Prom Night: A Litany of Sexy Lovers at the Prom

Prom Night is a wild, high-energy eight-minute narrative short film by director/performer/choreographer Celia Rowlson-Hall, which premiered at SXSW last year. Rowlson-Hall stars as a/the/your prom-date in this beautiful, surreal, reference-laden piece. The film takes a very simple concept, a look at the cultural trappings that come with dream girls and trips to the prom, and knocks it out of the park.

Hall, who stars in the film, looks straight into the camera and takes the viewer through a dance in an empty school gymnasium decorated for the prom. While The Ronettes’ Be My Little Baby plays, through a series of wardrobe alterations and spontaneous costume and hairstyle changes, Hall leads the viewer through a litany of archetypal lovers: from the holy virginal, to Lolita, to Carrie. Prom Night is such an engrossing dance/performance short film that you won’t dare take your eyes off of it.
