Set during a sweltering Chicago summer, this slice-of-life story follows Cyd, a 16-year-old girl visiting her intellectual aunt Miranda, a successful novelist. Cyd is free-spirited, sporty and sensuous. The straightlaced Miranda finds fulfillment in writing, religion, and friendships. As these opposites strive to find common ground, each follows their own path of self-discovery. Director Stephen Cone scheduled to attend for post-screening discussion.
Preceded by animated short Corky (2017), directed by Ty Primosch, the whimsical late-night adventure of one corkscrew that refuses to stay bottled up. 6 min
