FRIDAY JUNE 16th

HALFWAY TO ZEN       4pm

Directed by John Adams and Toby Poser

Nick, whose past is defined by addiction and violence, has moved from a life behind bars to one of stagnation and self-loathing.  Still isolated from those he loves, Nick is now ironically the caretaker for his Pop’s final days.  Pop and Vick (Nick’s ex-wife) are both imprisoned by new cerebral challenges: dementia and stroke.  And Nick’s daughter Edie courageously and defiantly claims identity as a boy – Eddie.  When Vick’s girlfriend suddenly leaves the country on business, this broken up family is thrown back together and must find ways to care for each other.  The film looks beyond sadness, fear, and convention towards something a bit off-center, playful at times, and even a little dangerous.
