A young Brooklyn couple heads to an upstate cabin to unplug from their phones and reconnect with each other. Blissfully unaware of their surroundings, they are left to their own devices as the planet falls under attack.

Save Yourselves!

Alex H Fischer & Eleanor Wilson | US | 93

Jack (John Reynolds) and Su (Sunita Mani) are a hip Brooklyn couple who, like many of their friends, find themselves dependent on technology and unable to put down their phones. Fearing their mindless scrolling may impact their connection with each other, they seize the chance to head to an isolated cabin in the woods, vowing to unplug from the outside world for a week. Sheltered from texts and push notifications, they are blissfully unaware that the planet is under attack. As strange events unfold, the couple must figure out a way back to civilization—or what’s left of it. Courtesy of Bleecker Street.

The Great Fair

Andrew Wonder & Colleen Dodge | US | 8

Blue ribbon bunnies, galloping porkers and ginormous pumpkins. Come one, come all through this kaleidoscopic journey of the people and places that make up this most beloved but quickly disappearing American tradition.

Wong Ping's Fables 2

Wong Ping | China, US | 13

Wong Ping’s Fables 2, comprises two back-to-back animations, each of which presents a fictional story with imaginary characters, communicating a moral lesson to the viewer. Jumping between the tales of a wealthy imprisoned cow and a con-joined triplet rabbit, Wong Ping’s Fables 2 touches upon issues of greed, incarceration, digital consumerism, narcissism, and desire. Despite the vibrant and childlike aesthetic, the films address systemic issues that affect our contemporary daily lives. Ultimately, Wong Ping’s Fables 2 is a cynical and cuttingly wry source of insight into societal behavior. His unique visual language helps to diffuse the lewd and offbeat stories that explore the dark corners of human nature.
