Robert Greene, 2014
USA | Format: HDCam | 86 minutes

Closing Night

Filmmaker Robert Greene and subject Brandy Burre in person for Q&A!

This thoroughly compelling and at times thoroughly unnerving new film by Robert Greene (Fake It So Real) is a documentary that feels like intimate melodrama. Brandy Burre had a recurring role on HBO’s The Wire when she gave up her career to start a family. After a few years of life in the country, she decides to return to acting, and sets the denouement of her relationship in motion. As she comes apart on camera in varying shades of drama, it's never clear at what level this film may simply be the next role.

Screening with:

Rehearsal
Tom Rosenberg | USA | 2013 | 11m

Like a flipped but equally dystopian reality version of Peter Watkins’s The War Game, Rehearsal depicts a simulated terrorist attack in Middle America, with hundreds of participants playing the roles of panicking victim, rescue worker, and stunned passerby.
