About

Originally shot in Super-8 film, "Botanica Prayer," is an excerpt of Creston's string of brief absurdist segments about misfortune and false hope, "Open 7 Days a Week, 24 Hours a Day," actor Kenny Schneider creates a character who rapidly devolves upon encounter with a religious figure in a store window. So taken by the chance sight of a holy icon, this passerby first begins to pray moderately, the earnestly, then with increasing fervor, until he is overcome by paroxysm and meets his maker.
