BAM | 30 Lafayette Ave.
Uncle Kent 2
Directed by Todd Rohal
With Kent Osborne, Kate Herman, Lyndsay Hailey, Jennifer Prediger, Joe Swanberg
Storyboard artist Kent Osborne is dead-set on making a sequel to Joe Swanberg’s Uncle Kent, an idea that Swanberg shrugs off and Todd Rohal (The Catechism Cataclysm, BAMcinemaFest 2011) picks up, following Osborne to San Diego Comic-Con. Soon enough Osborne steadily goes off the rails amid a series of hallucinations, bizarre romantic pursuits, and delirious ramblings about engineer Ray Kurzweil’s singularity concept—and he becomes increasingly aware that the world is about to end. This ultra-meta absurdist romp won the Visions Audience Award at SXSW.
Directed by Bruce Smolanoff
