Q&A with director Liz Manashil after the screening
In 2016, David Bowie’s death creates a rift in time and space. June (Allison Tolman) and Edward (Ray Santiago) are in the midst of an argument when Edward falls into a wormhole created by Bowie’s death, vanishing without a trace. In 2040, June (Ann Dowd) continues to mourn Edward while facing the new society’s Orwellian dictates associated with her approaching 60th birthday. As June plans her escape, Edward suddenly reappears, not having aged a day. Confronted by both her past and future, the answer to June’s dilemmas won’t come easily.
Covering material spanning Five Decades of David Bowie’s career, The JEAN GENIES have been wowing Northern California with their faithful and passionate renditions of Bowie’s smash hits and hidden gems!
