Monday, April 19, 7:00pm: Save Yourselves (2020)
Filmmakers: Alex Fisher & Eleanor Wilson
Jack (John Reynolds) and Su (Sunita Mani) are a hip Brooklyn couple who, like many of their friends, find themselves dependent on technology and unable to put down their phones. Fearing their mindless scrolling may impact their connection with each other, they seize the chance to head to an isolated cabin in the woods, vowing to unplug from the outside world for a week. Sheltered from texts and push notifications, they are blissfully unaware that the planet is under attack. As strange events unfold, the couple must figure out a way back to civilization—or what’s left of it.
Please note: Reel Talk provides the opportunity to explore diverse and complex films. Due to adult content and mature themes, viewer and participant discretion is advised. *Registration required to participate in discussions. We look forward to seeing you!
