WE ARE STRANGERS
(2013, 73 minutes)
A man shutters his windows and locks his door, intending to enjoy a debauched night alone away from his girlfriend, when he's interrupted by a surprise guest. A woman on the run ventures out to parts unknown to visit an old friend, but winds up an unwanted outsider at a private party. An improvised anthologyof interconnected stories that explores the bonds we'd rather forget, the bonds we run from, and ultimately the bonds we find when we're least expecting it. Raw, unpredictable, and surprisingly funny, the debut film from New York's Private Cabin Collective explores the space between where old relationships end and newrelationships begin.
New York Admission is $6 for the whole evening and tickets are available at the Anthology Box Office the night of screening.
