Nov 7th @ 7pm: The Springvale Armadillo by Donald Loftus
Directed by Katie Wallace
In 1927, in a small town near New Orleans, a beautiful 17 year-old debutante is diagnosed with a disease that threatens her life and the reputation of her wealthy family name. She is sent away by the family she loves, her name is changed, and she is forced to spend the rest of her life at a hospital called Springvale. The disease never materializes. Now, 70 years later, Matthew, a troubled, young Boston Globe reporter, has arrived at Springvale to interview Ruby for a human interest story he is writing on the subject of survival.
Nov 14th @ 7pm: Monkey Island Manifesto by Matthew Power
Directed by Derek Wohlust
This dark, modern dramedy follows an ill-advised effort to “fix” the missing link in primate evolution. As the overhyped experiment unravels, we meet monsters in the making —but should we blame genetic tinkering or toxic tutoring? Set on a tiny, lush island on Florida’s Gulf Coast, this apocalyptic tale keeps you laughing, until the bitter end.
Nov 21st @ 7pm: I’m Not Savant by Will Taylor
Directed by Monica Cross
Two men, both on the autism spectrum and highly successful in their careers, meet by chance on the bus one morning and decide to make friends with each other. The problem? Neither one knows how. Together at the neighborhood pub, they set out on a journey of dialogue to answer the question, “How do people genuinely connect with one another?”
