Rooftop is thrilled to announce the New York City theatrical premiere of Bad Posture, directed by Malcolm Murray. The film — which made its world premiere at International Film Festival Rotterdam and its NYC premiere at the Rooftop Films Summer Series — offers a darkly funny and visually stunning portrait of the youth of Albuquerque. And starting August 12th through August 18th, for those of you that missed it or can’t wait to see it again, Bad Posture will screen at the reRun Theater in Dumbo, Brooklyn.

The film follows Graffiti artist Flo and his best friend Trey as they wander the city, attempting illicit moneymaking schemes. Friendship turns to betrayal and remorse to romance as Trey soon implicates Flo in Grand Theft Auto and Flo finds himself infatuated by the car’s beguiling owner, Marissa. Flo’s journey back to her captures the interior life and layered society of Albuquerque with almost disturbing authenticity. Not surprisingly, Murray and first time writer/actor Florian Brozek are natives to the place, used a cast of almost entirely non-actors, and drew heavily on real life events in crafting the story. Nevertheless, what truly sets Bad Posture apart is the way in which, as Mark Elijah Rosenberg (Rooftop Films) comments, it handles the “moments of greatest tension [...] with an ethereal grace that is part comic nihilism and part hopeful dream.”

Full show details are below. End your summer right with this masterful piece of ‘immaculately shot misconduct” (Village Voice). Tickets may be purchased for $7 at the door or online. We hope to see you there.
