With Lebron James, Dwyane Wade and the rest of your Miami Heat just starting their playoff run, the Borscht Film Festival this week released the full version of “Adventures of Christopher Bosh in the Multiverse,” which premiered at Borscht 8 back in December.
Directed by prolific GIF generator Ronnie Rivera, the mad man behind Bleeding Palm, the short stars Bosh as a 12-dimensional “star prince” who flees his home universe after inadvertently causing his own father’s death by the hand of the Evil Sorceress Jillian (played by Miami artist Jillian Mayer). Try as he does to escape his past in the guise of “an above average professional human millionaire basketball player,” Bosh must overcome issues of “interdimensional abandonment” and face his heroic destiny. Luckily, “Bath Salt Zombie” victim Ronald Poppo and the Mystic Wolfman Barfar (who takes over Mike Miller’s body during the NBA Finals) are there to help.

Needless to say, “Adventures of Christopher Bosh in the Multiverse” is a fiction, but that didn’t stop the NBA from allegedly sending Borscht a cease-and-desist letter last year, an absurd development that only reenforced the film’s underlying message: These are strange, strange days.
