ABOVE AND BELOW

ABOVE AND BELOW

NYC PREMIERE Nicolas Steiner’s sublime exploration of lives lived on the fringe is set in a seemingly apocalyptic world that happens to be our own. Living above ground, April dons a spacesuit to simulate life on Mars as part of a remote science program in Utah, while Dave has left modern society for an abandoned military bunker in the California desert. Meanwhile, finding shelter below, in Las Vegas storm drains, are Lalo, Rick and Cindy, who contend with frequent, dangerous flooding to survive on their own terms.

This screening is co-presented with Rooftop Films.
