Location: Bartos Screening Room
With director Stephen Cone in conversation with film critic Vadim Rizov
New York Premiere
Dir. Stephen Cone. 2010, 101 mins. Digital projection. With Ian Forester, Kelly O’Sullivan, Sadie Rogers, Annabel Armour, Sue Redman. Two young people, nude and entangled, accidentally fall to their deaths from a roof. To his friends, it is nothing more than a mordantly humorous story, but for Jonathan it is something more—something hard to reconcile. His obsession with this incident inspires a spirited low-budget theatrical reenactment, one that, as observed by Robert Ebert in the Chicago Sun-Times, is “possibly not a million miles distant from what Cone himself did” with this film. Cone’s version is a sad and funny reckoning with life and death, and the need for connection—however elusive and fleeting. A Sunroom Pictures film.
