DINNER IN HYDE PARK
Directed by Jon Silver
22 Minutes - Digital, Color, USA, 2019
A Chicago writer invites younger versions of himself for dinner, but he is deeply confounded by his ex-girlfriends attendance and the interruption of a surprise.
Dinner in Hyde Park is a comedy with themes of nostalgia, mental health, the maturation process, and relationship dynamics. The world in which people converse and interact with their younger selves is not that different from our own.
Directed by Meghann Artes
A fuzzy bachelor has engineered his wacky morning routine with robotic precision. Meghann Artes is an award winning filmmaker and associate professor at DePaul University.
