UPDATE: encore presentation -  FASTER! screens for free tomorrow at Columbia’s Film Row Cinema, 1104 South Wabash! Reception at 5:30; screening starts at 6 p.m

Shot in HD on location here in Chicago, Faster!, a short film directed by Marie Ullrich, will be showing later this month at the Chicago International Film Festival, as well as the BFI London Film Festival.

Faster! Movie Title

Faster!’s female bike messenger protagonist, Jasper, is a character first created by Ullrich for a feature film script that was a finalist for the Sundance Filmmakers Labs. Though Faster! is a short film, it stands alone, autonomous and complete in it’s own right.

Created with the participation and support of the Chicago bike messaging community, Faster! chronicles Jasper’s battle with the hostile city, its raging drivers, its surly security guards, and her tough dispatcher. Forced to engage in less-than-admirable dealings in order to make ends meet, Jasper’s character is tough and fearless. But her vulnerability, wit and intelligence make Jasper a character we can’t help but root for, no matter what sort of scams she must carry out.
