About the film:

Winner of the Grand Jury Prize for Best Narrative Feature at SXSW Film Festival 2020. A lonely, friendless college freshman attends a party at a legendary fraternity house, where he forges a strong connection with his RA.

About the filmmakers:

Debut feature from newcomer Cooper Raiff, who wrote, directed, edited and stars. For his SXSW Grand Jury Prize, he recorded a heartfelt acceptance speech in April 2020. To complete his award-winning film, Raiff sought the help of his friends and the guidance of innovative filmmaker Jay Duplass. 

Jay and his brother Mark have paved the way for independent creatives with their television shows and films, including their own debut feature, The Puffy Chair (2005), which premiered at Sundance and won the Audience Award at SXSW. Always exploring new avenues for storytelling, the Duplass brothers have signed a deal to create an original podcast series for Spotify. Jay also appears in Shithouse as Professor Notkin.
