The literary post-punk short movies of Emily Vey Duke and Cooper Battersby have been tearing up the festival/gallery circuit for the past fifteen years with their blend of bedroom pop, perverse animations and fame hopes. In this collection of stills, award-winning scripts, creative writings and critical missives, scholars, video legends and animal experts weigh in on why they matter.
