The inaugural So Very Serious Film Screening (or SVSFS). We show the almost-classic movie Untitled. David Lang's music is used throughout the film, and he will be present to say a few words on something. You may even get to sit next to him. Starring Adam Goldberg and Marley Shelton, this comic tale about the state of contemporary art follows a Chelsea art gallerist falling for a brooding new music composer. With special pre-film live music.

And if you don't have enough reasons to attend, there will also be a super fantastic one-of-a kind door prize for an extremely lucky audience member.
