(NEW YORK CITY) -- Award-winning feature comedy Pop Meets the Void will screen at Museum of the Moving Image on Friday, March 18 at 8:00pm. The film will be screened on DCP inside the 300-seat Sumner Redstone Theater. This event is the film’s Queens premiere, where it was originally filmed in 2013-2014.
Described as a “twisted indie music film” by Indiewire, William Cusick’s second feature film follows a musician as he struggles to release his first album. Shapeshifting between stardom and anonymity, the musician navigates a hyperreal combination of live action and animation daydreams. Compelling, humorous, and built around a unique visual style, Pop Meets the Void is a story about making music, the uncertainties of reality and the inherent absurdities of identity. The film premiered at the 5th Annual Lower East Side Film Festival in June 2015 at Anthology Film Archives’ Courthouse Theater and was awarded Best Feature Film of the Festival.
This screening is sponsored by the 6th Annual Queens World Film Festival which engages audiences with targeted outreach to the diverse communities that comprise the borough of Queens. QWFF sponsors include Kaufman Astoria Studios, Investors Bank Foundation, Council Member Daniel Dromm and Council Member Jimmy Van Bramer, and The Queens Post.
Museum of the Moving Image is located at 36-01 35th Ave in New York, NY.
