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.

Directed by Liz Manashil, 2019. 75 min. With Ann Dowd (The Handmaid’s Tale, Leftovers), Ray Santiago (Ash Vs. Evil Dead, Hulu’s The Body (Into The Dark), Vella Lovell (Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, The Big Sick), Sean Wright (Bread and Butter), Allison Tolman (Emergence, Fargo, Downward Dog), Jeff Perry (Scandal).
