About the event

Polite Apocalypse is an experimental film that stitches together three longform music videos into a surreal narrative about a New Year's Eve party during the end of the world. The film features three Sleepy Kitty songs: 'How's the New Job Debbie?' 'Blessing/Curse,' and 'Bigger Picture.' These songs served as the creative impetus for the whole work, which, through months of workshopping with the ensemble, expanded into a loose, cinematic adaptation of Anton Chekhov's Platonov.  

We invite you to the first screening of Polite Apocalypse. It is still a work in progress, but it needs an audience of discerning patrons like you for the creators to evaluate how to shape the work going forward.

Doors at 7pm. Screening begins at 7:30pm. Run time approx. 2 hours.
