Exclusive: Flex With The Trailer For Sundance Short ‘Master Muscles’

Exclusive: Flex With The Trailer For Sundance Short 'Master Muscles'

The high profile titles at Sundance you likely already know of, or have read about in our 30 Most Anticipated Films list, but the festival is also a place where some of the most fascinating work comes from unexpected places. And if this teaser trailer is anything to go by, “Master Muscles” could raise a few eyebrows.

Directed by Efrén Hernández (fun fact—he’s the former chef at Nighthawk Cinema), and featuring the helmer alongside Jehina Malik, the 14-minute movie is keeping most of its details hidden for now. And even the synopsis is vague, only revealing: Veronica and Efren go on a trip. But damn, what a trip it is, with this trailer presenting a blitzkrieg of images both intriguing and unnerving.

“Master Muscles” has its first screening tomorrow at Sundance. Watch below.
