We're happy to offer our DC readers a chance to attend a free advance screening of the buzzy new comedy, Creative Control, which premiered at SXSW last year and has been called "original and funny" by Woody Allen.
SYNOPSIS: The setting is New York, 5 minutes in the future. The glorious technological advances and communication devices of the near future meant to increase connectivity and alleviate boredom are only increasing the anxiety level of the insecure New Yorkers who've inherited them. David (writer/director Benjamin Dickinson) is an overworked, tech-addled advertising executive developing a high-profile marketing campaign for a new generation of Augmented Reality glasses. Feeling stuck in his relationship with yoga teacher Juliette (Nora Zehetner, BRICK, IFC's "Maron"), he envies the charmed life of his best friend, fashion photographer Wim (Dan Gill, THE WEDDING RINGER) and his entrancing girlfriend Sophie (Alexia Rasmussen, CALIFORNIA SOLO) - so he uses the glasses to develop a life-like avatar of her. Unwittingly, fantasy and reality begin to blur. As passions escalate and things get increasingly out of hand, the friends are forced to deal with the impending collision between their public, private and imaginary lives.
The screening takes place on Monday, March 14th at 7:00pm at Landmark E Street. For a chance to attend, simply send an email with your full name to firstname.lastname@example.org with 'Creative Control' in the subject line. 15 winners will be selected at random and notified on Friday, March 11th. Good luck!
