synopsis
A collection of three short stories, each a surreal and darkly comic exploration of creative expression and how our artistic impulses have the power to unite us or alienate us. "Helberger In Paradise" stars Kate Lyn Sheil as a New Yorker who returns to her hometown to make good on an anarchistic promise to a deceased lover. "High And Dry" stars Ariane Labed as a privileged street photographer who suspects that her declining eyesight might have disturbing psychological implications. "The Crumb of It" stars Jocelin Donahue as a struggling comedian dating a rising star pastry chef played by Chioke Nassor, who find that their creative pursuits may sabotage their new relationship.

filmmaker's note
The three films are separate stories, much like a collection of short fiction, however they have some connective tissue that would make them ideal to watch together. The dramatic/comedic stories explore the lives of artistic young New Yorkers who find their creative pursuits coming into direct conflict with other aspects of their lives. These characters each encounter strange and surreal obstacles, both internal and external while striving to actualize their true selves.

notes
Director T.J. Misny will be available for a Q&A after the screening.
