(USA/2016—directed by Dash Shaw)

From acclaimed graphic novelist Dash Shaw (New School) comes an audacious debut that is equal parts disaster cinema, high school comedy and blockbuster satire, told through a dream-like mixed media animation style. Dash (Jason Schwartzman) and his best friend Assaf (Reggie Watts) are preparing for another year of working on their widely-distributed but little-read school newspaper, when Dash learns of a cover-up by the school administration’s that puts all the students in danger. Hailed as “the most original animated film of the year” (IndieWire), it reminds us how the high school experience continues to shape who we become, even in the most unusual of circumstances. With the voices of Lena Dunham and Susan Sarandon. Recommended for ages 13 to adult. (77 minutes)
