Screening followed by live comedy set from America’s Funnyman Neil Hamburger!

Directed by Rick Alverson
USA, 2015, DCP, 103 min

In the new film from writer/director Rick Alverson, an aging comedian (Gregg Turkington) tours the California desert, lost in a cycle of third-rate venues, novelty tourist attractions, and vain attempts to reach his estranged daughter. By day, he slogs through the barren landscape, inadvertently alienating every acquaintance. At night, he seeks solace in the animation of his onstage persona. Fueled by the promise of a lucrative Hollywood engagement and the possibility of rekindling a relationship with his daughter, he trudges through a series of increasingly surreal and volatile encounters. Also starring John C. Reilly, Tye Sheridan and Michael Cera. Written by Alverson, Turkington and Tim Heidecker.
