About the Director:
Rodney Ascherʼs films have screened at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, The George Eastman House, and under the Brooklyn Bridge. His 2010 short “The S From Hell” also premiered at Sundance and in many ways laid the groundwork for “Room 237”. His genre-blurring work includes countless short films, as well as commercial projects for clients including EA Games, Capitol Records, and VH1. In his most recent music video he killed Matt & Kim, Soulja Boy, and Andrew W.K. He lives in Los Angeles with his talented wife, their clever baby, and a beautiful cat.
