Jill "Sixx Tape" Gevargizian's fifth short film (following Grammy, Call Girl and the Soska Blood Drive PSAs The Luhrmanns and Police Brutality) The Sylist stars Najarra Townsend (Contracted, Substance) and Jennifer Plas (The unReal Housewives of Kansas City).
They say to write what you know. As a real-life hairstylist, Gevargizian knows hair, and how clients act when they're in her chair. As a horror director, she puts some murderous thoughts she may have had during a particularly bad day at the salon (I'm guessing) to film.
The Sylist will have its world premiere at Etheria Film Night on June 11 at the Aero Theater in Santa Monica, CA. The short is one of only nine to show at festival's short film showcase.
Here's the short film's synopsis:
Claire is a lonely hairstylist with an unnerving desire to escape her disappointing reality. When her final client of the evening arrives with the request to look perfect, Claire has plans of her own.
