Producer John Charles Meyer will present and discuss a screening of this fantastical new independent film. Winner of the Audience Award for Best Narrative Feature at Slamdance, this surreal adventure-comedy concerns a frustrated artist (Nick Thune) who builds a cardboard fort in his living room and proceeds to get lost in it. Dave’s girlfriend Annie (Meera Rohit Kumbhani) leads a band of oddball explorers on a rescue mission, but once inside, they are threatened by booby traps and a fearsome Minotaur, all creations of Dave’s imagination. The handmade fantasy world comes to life with puppetry, stop-motion animation and in-camera optical illusions. Also starring James Urbaniak, Adam Busch. Writers: Steven Sears, Bill Watterson. Producer: John Charles Meyer. Director: Bill Watterson. (US 2017) 81 min. plus discussion.
