"I wanted to approach our Winter Season like a version of our summer programming, so we have readings, residencies and filmmaker's events happening at various points throughout February," said Christopher Burney, New York Stage and Film's Artistic Director. "In addition to creating more opportunities for artists, this interaction between projects fosters something all artists seek - community."

Rebecca Burgess is just living her life when weird, supernatural shit starts happening to her for no reason she can think of.

A Distinct Society

A quiet library that straddles the border of the U.S. and Canada becomes an unlikely crucible for five people from around the world.
