Part of A Swanberg Sampler
Sunday, March 2, 2014, 4:30 p.m.

With Joe Swanberg in person

Dir. Joe Swanberg. 2011, 72 mins. Digital projection. With Kevin Bewersdorf, Josephine Decker, Kent Osborne, Joe Swanberg, Jennifer Prediger. Swanberg’s sixth feature (and the first of six films he released in 2011 alone) finds the director tackling themes of aging and alienation in the social media age with a freshly grown-up perspective. Newly 40, Kent, a cartoonist living in LA, spends his free time getting high, prowling Chatroulette, and filming most of his social interactions on a digital camera. His sad sack routine is upended by the arrival of cute but flighty online acquaintance Kate—precipitating a weekend of uncomfortable sexual tension and an apocalyptically awkward Craigslist hookup.
