Includes a Q&A with Joanna Arnow! To make an additional $10 donation to The Future of Film is Female, select the “Event + Donation” ticket on the checkout screen.

Filmmaker Joanna Arnow’s hilarious comedy follows a 30-something New York woman (Arnow) as time passes in her long-term casual BDSM relationship, low-level corporate job, and quarrelsome Jewish family. Arnow’s debut feature film, which she also wrote, directed, and stars in world-premiered in Cannes’ Directors’ Fortnight and is executive produced by Sean Baker.

“Arnow… is known for her autobiographically tinged works of brutal honesty and deadpan self-deprecation. Here, she finds a core of poignant truth about the ways people search for those elusive, ever-shifting things like emotional happiness and sexual gratification, refusing to judge them while at the same time unafraid of presenting their flaws.” – NYFF
