Brent Green’s debut feature-length film expands upon the themes and aesthetics of his short analog animations. Hope and despair often clash in Green’s fantastical, intimate productions. Filmed on an elaborate large-scale set with actors instead of drawings, this film reconstructs the true story of a man obsessed with curing his wife of a terminal illness. For the Hammer program, Green narrates the film live onstage accompanied by Brendan Canty of Fugazi on drums, John Swartz on cello and Donna K providing foley and percussion.
Enjoy pre-show drinks at our cash bar from 7:00–8:00PM.
