Monday, February 24
By Max Posner; Directed by Lila Neugebauer
Winter 2040. Three grown siblings are spending lots of time in their basements. Timothy's wife Judy just left him. His daughter is rapidly entering adolescence. Tara, his sister, is starting a new religion and talking to doors. Their eldest sister Kris spends her nights alone, volunteering over the internet. Unfolding in three basements over four months, JUDY is a comic portrait of one family's struggle to reckon with and resurrect the past amidst breakdowns in their technological systems and verbal communication skills.
