Glamarus, an art film directed by Dylan Greenberg, is screening next week at Videology in Williamsburg. (Full disclosure: Greenberg is indeed related to this reporter. So sue me.) Shot largely on the Lower East Side, and co-starring Mr. Lower East Side himself, Matthew Silver, the film is a surreal series of vignettes about “a tall, skinny boy obsessed with traffic cones, a lesbian Adam and Eve, a wise bearded man and the self-proclaimed King of the Sea…watched over by a man who lives in a television set.”

This is Greenberg’s first full-length feature.
