by Amit Desai. 2021. 100 min.
A troupe of teens put on a play written by director and Queens local Amit Desai. Unrehearsed conversations bleed into scripted lines in this shapeshifting document of surreal theater. On the verge of adulthood, the performers discuss their fears, queerness, and ideas of truth and fiction as they free-fall into performative self-reflection.
Post-screening discussion with filmmaker Amit Desai.
