Minnesota filmmakers J.L. Sosa and Tristan Corrigan eagerly await the worldwide festival debut of their 26-minute short film, “Empty Trash,” at the
Minneapolis Underground Film Festival.
It will bring a gag-inducing finish to the MUFF’s Short Story Film Showcase, at 12:45 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 5, at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design. MUFF-goers can expect a fast- paced whirlwind of murder and bleak humor that Geek Tyrant called “great and disturbing” and Horror News Net said “ends with you wanting more.”

“Empty Trash” is a neo-noir crime drama/horror short about a paroled ex-con who is forced into executing a small-time heist that quickly descends into sadistic mayhem. It stars some of the edgiest performers to emerge from the Midwest independent fi lm scene: Loren Farrand, Wade Dienert and Alex Wade. Making a special appearance is legendary scream queen, screenwriter, producer, director and pin-up model Rachel Grubb (“Chimera Tribe: The Rakai,” “Bad Girls Burn In Hell,” “Why Am I in a Box?”)
“Empty Trash” was written, produced, edited and co-directed by Jorge Luis aka J.L. Sosa (“Moon Patrol,” “Donna, My Love”). Sosa’s greatest claim to fame is co-starring with cult moviemaker Ted V. Mikels in R.P. Whalen’s 2006 mockumentary “Mondo Collecto.” Sosa is also a freelance writer, reporter for the award-winning weekly newspaper the Hutchinson Leader, and contributor to the movie news website Film School Rejects.
Co-director and cinematographer Tristan Corrigan is a recently commisioned officer in the U.S.
Navy serving on the USS Gary. While attending Iowa State University, he worked on the crew
of the After Dark horror film, “Husk.” After several years of kicking ass for Uncle Sam on the high seas, he hopes to return to the film world with a vengeance.
