Narrative Feature

When John inadvertently thwarts Mary’s suicide attempt, these two homeless drifters become unlikely traveling companions in a magically real road trip inspired by the films of Jim Jarmusch, Wim Wenders, and The Wizard of Oz.

Directed by Jason Neulander

Jason Neulander received his BA and MA in theater from Brown University and is an award-winning theatre artist, filmmaker, and producer based in Austin, Texas. He founded and was the artistic director of Austin’s premiere producer of new plays Salvage Vanguard Theater from 1994 to 2008. Over his tenure he directed and produced more than 50 world-premiere plays, musicals, and operas. He is also the creator of THE INTERGALACTIC NEMESIS, which takes the form of graphic novels, a YouTube series, podcasts, audio dramas, novels, and a live theatrical tour. From 2011 to 2017 the tour played more than 200 venues around the world, including runs on Broadway, sold-out performances at the Kennedy Center, and was adapted for television by PBS. In 2015, Neulander wrote and directed his first short film HIT & RUN, which was selected for the Texas Filmmakers Showcase. His second short Buttercup was broadcast nationally on PBS.

AFS’s Works-In-Progress series provides the growing, diverse and vibrant filmmaking community of Austin peer-level critiques of rough or fine cuts of their work. Screenings are free and are followed by moderated audience feedback sessions. Do you have a film you want to submit for Works-In-Progress consideration? Make level members and above can apply here?
