About the Film
Single New York City artist Ellie Shine is looking to gain inspiration and tranquility as she housesits for a friend in upstate New York. Accompanied by her lovable handicapped dog, Bing, Ellie comes of age—middle age—in her new surroundings.

“Refreshing…provocative…We are mere weeks into 2018, but I have a feeling
the final shot of “My Art” will easily rank among my favorites of the year.” - Matt Fagerholm, RogerEbert.com

"An amusing riff on the way one's creative work bleeds into one's personal life... Simmons expresses a singular voice and style" - Katie Walsh, LA Times

Then, Saturday night, Oscar and Pulitzer winner Jules Feiffer presents... 

BERNARD AND HUEY

WHEN: Saturday, September 15 at 7:00 p.m.
TICKETS:
$13 general admission/$9 students/$8 members

Director Dan Mirvish (Slamdance co-founder) will be here too!

Jules will be signing his new book The Ghost Script in the lobby at 6:00pm. Sponsored by Atomic Books.

BERNARD AND HUEY was a long-lost script by Feiffer about the roguish Huey and nebbishy Bernard—unlikely college friends in late 80s New York.

"As you might hope for a film with a script from the great Jules Feiffer, Dan Mirvish's Bernard and Huey bristles with anxious, circuitous, hilarious talk." - Alan Scherstuhl, Village Voice
