"It is very gratifying to be part of the premiere of Concussion in Columbus. I grew up here, my mom remains an institution here, and I still have many close friends in town," stated Chenfeld.
"Columbus has a rich and diverse creative community and I am very excited to share this film with the good people of central Ohio."

This screening is being presented in partnership with Stonewall Columbus.
A poignant sexual examination of Abby (Robin Weigert), a forty-something married, wealthy, lesbian housewife who, after suffering a blow to the head from her son's baseball, walks around every corner of her suburban life to confront a mounting desire for something else. She takes on a new project and purchases a pied-à-terre in Manhattan. Walking around the city streets reminds Abby what it feels like to be sexy, and her pent-up libido shakes off its inhibitions. Her new-found desire though is not a take-home item, so Abby inaugurates a double life as a high-end escort. Palpably sensual and deliciously contained, Concussion is a keen observation of the complicated contours of midlife crisis. Rated R, 1 hr. 33 min.
