In a city full of people who habitually avoid each other, two strangers connect and then must make a choice about whether to keep up the lies they tell themselves or to be vulnerable enough to admit defeat and surrender. The strangers challenge each other as they enter a bubble of intimacy that draws them closer than they ever could have anticipated. Set in a dream-like atmosphere with a lush original soundtrack, “Strangers” unfolds a chance encounter that offers audiences a glimpse into their own fantasies about the desire to be loved and understood.
Directed by Christina Raia, Woodside, NY, 7:36, New York City Premiere!

Caitlin Among the Beasts
Directed by Adam Bertocci, Bronxville, NY, 11:11
A comedy about finding grace and other things that get away. Irresponsible millennial Caitlin’s got an easy gig hamster-sitting for her nieces at her sister’s cushy suburban pad. Everything goes all right… at first.
