Watch: Terry Gilliam Unveils the First Trailer for His Short Film 'The Wholly Family'

Teaser for The Wholly Family

Terry Gilliam fans rejoice! The director is back in action with a new film, a short entitled The Wholly Family. The best news of all? Gilliam fans will be able to check out the flick online.

Billed as a “surreal comedy,” The Wholly Family is about an American family vacationing in Naples. The film was funded by Italian pasta company Garafalo and features nothing you’d expect to find in a pasta commercial here in the States. There are dancing men in masks, dropped eggs, a jaunty musical number and more. It’s pretty obvious that it’s something Gilliam made, though – which is always a good thing in our way of thinking.

The film will be available for streaming starting on January 23rd at the Guardian website. It’s not free – so you’ll have to pony up roughly $3 for what is essentially a twisted short film commercial for pasta, but it’s Terry Gilliam – so it’s probably totally worth it.

Until then, have a peek at the trailer and see what you think. Hopefully the film itself will feature subtitles.
