World premiere of a new, short movie by HAWK MARTHA (Jake Marcks). Friday, 11/17, 7PM at Beat Kitchen (2100 W Belmont) Free!
Lunar Unlimited is about a girl who tries out a virtual-reality episode of a workplace sitcom, but due to a malfunction, gets stuck inside for her entire life. It’s a mix of sci-fi, comedy, and the experimental.
