Flooding with Love for the Kid (dir. Zachary Oberzan)
DIY Special Presentation
7:15pm - 9:15pm @ Nitehawk Cinema (136 Metropolitan Avenue between Wythe and Berry)
This rarely screened film was adapted, directed, filmed, acted, designed, and edited by one man. Shot entirely for $96 in a 220 square-foot studio apartment in Manhattan, Oberzan plays two dozen characters in this adaptation of First Blood, the novel that introduced the world to Rambo. The critic Matt Zoller Seitz, who put together this marvelous video essay on the film, will moderate a Q&A with Oberzan after the screening.
Creative Nonfiction (dir. Lena Dunham)
Presented by The L Magazine
8:10pm - 9:10pm @ Nitehawk Cinema
Don't miss the chance to see the creator of the HBO series Girls (and L Magazine cover star) Lena Dunham's first full length feature (yes, even before Tiny Furniture), which she started filming while still at Oberlin, and already very much preoccupied with female friendship and the interpersonal gender gap.
