Oblivion

by Carly Mensch
Directed by Stuart Carden
March 21 – April 26, 2015 (Hamburg Studio)

Uber-hip Brooklynites Pam and Dixon take pride in their progressive approach to parenting. But when their 16-year-old daughter Julie lies about where she spent the weekend, their cool façade crumbles. With the help of Julie’s friend Bernard, a filmmaker in the making, this smart comedy takes a humorous look at Nietzsche, famed film critic Pauline Kael, and what it means to fight for the ones you love.
