About the film:
Premiered at Outfest Los Angeles 2020
It’s 1994 and a group of high school drama nerds are throwing their last murder mystery slumber party. Before they leave for college, Gene wants to come out of the closet, but is terrified of what his sheltered friends might think.
About the filmmaker:
Writer and director Jonathan Wysocki often draws from his own experience to craft award-winning projects. His short film Adjust-A-Dream screened at the American Pavilion Emerging Filmmakers’ Showcase at Cannes, and his short documentary A Doll’s Eyes, an exploration of queer shame through his childhood obsession with Jaws, screened at more than 50 film festivals. He is a Fellow of the Berlinale Talents, an advisor for Sundance Co//ab, and worked as a feature programmer for the Los Angeles Film Festival.
Wysocki sometimes struggled with the autobiographical aspects of his films, even with his feature debut Dramarama. Read more here.See our upcoming films See all virtual titles
