Please note: due to unforeseen circumstances, the Friday, Nov. 19 6:30pm screening of I'M FINE (THANKS FOR ASKING) will now screen at 8:15pm. We will still have a conversation with the filmmakers following the discussion. 

Co-director Angelique Molina is scheduled to appear in person at both shows and co-director Kelley Kali will appear via Zoom at the Friday, Nov. 19 screening. 

In this exhilarating, poignant debut feature, Danny (played by co-director Kelley Kali in a star-making performance), a recently widowed woman barely makes ends meet by braiding hair and making deliveries on roller skates. Having convinced her 8 year old daughter they are 'camping out’ in a tent for fun (in a nod to “Life is Beautiful”) she manages to save enough money for a downpayment on a new apartment. When a client is unable to pay her, she realizes that if she can’t raise  $200 by day’s end she will lose the apartment and have to admit to her daughter that they are actually "houseless". What follows is an intense, manic and frayed day until the final reckoning. In a world where we need more underrepresented voices telling their own stories, this movie hits the mark. Equal turns funny and heart wrenching, this is a soaring, urgent achievement that announces the co-directors, co-writers, and leading cast as major forces in a work that will have audiences cheering. 

We require proof of full vaccination or a negative result on a COVID PCR test for all screenings and events at the Film Center. See our full COVID-19 policy and details below.
