A limited-time sneak preview of Kelly Sears’ brand new film, playing at Rooftop on May 26.

(Kelly Sears | Houston, TX | 7 min.)
Part disaster film, part Freudian animation, Once It Started… bears witness to a series of absurd and horrible disasters that strike an American high school, eerily mirroring larger political and social markers of the recent past. Supported by the Rooftop Filmmakers’ Fund.

Playing at Rooftop Films on Thurs. May 26 in our “No Way Out” program of short films. See other psycho-thrillers like this on the stunning roof of Brooklyn Tech High School in Fort Greene, Brooklyn. GET TICKETS NOW!
