Uncle Kent 2

Friday, March 13
7:15PM - 8:28PM


In a desperate search to create a follow-up to Joe Swanberg's 2011 film UNCLE KENT, Kent Osborne travels to a comic book convention in San Diego where he loses his mind and confronts the end of the world. Reuniting in the GREMLINS 2 of "Indie" sequels, Joe Swanberg, Jennifer Prediger and Tipper Newton return in a surrealist look into Osborne's madness. Written by Osborne and passing the directors' torch over to Todd Rohal (THE CATECHISM CATACLYSM), UNCLE KENT 2 plays out like an absurdist successor that bends the rules of sequels and the minds of the audience.
