A wry, sinister depiction of a strange new universe, this super-indie is a melange of macabre folktales from a fictitious poet. The fantasmagorical cast of characters populate a decrepit village haunted by ghosts, superstition, poverty and disease. They trudge on in their rotten hamlet, from which hope has vanished since the recent apocalypse and where the fantastical is a daily occurrence. Highlighted by offbeat narrative construction, stunning black & white 16mm cinematography, this is a distinctively original film informed by American Gothic, folk culture and outsider art. Producer Vanessa McDonnell, a former Pittsburgher, and Director Aaron Schimberg are scheduled to lead a post-screening Q&A.

With short: White, by Lucas Omar.
