Brooklyn Comedy Film Festival Presents: Neighborhood Food Drive

  • Nitehawk Cinema 136 Metropolitan Avenue Brooklyn, NY 11249 USA (map)

w/ a post-screening Q&A with director Jerzy Rose

Convinced that hosting a lavish charity fundraiser will improve the public image of their unpopular restaurant, two women hire an intern to help them plan and execute a neighborhood food drive. Despite their somewhat good intentions, the team quickly succumbs to petulance and laziness. They make repeat attempts—trying to maintain positive attitudes—but cosmic maladies cripple their efforts and they soon find themselves doomed.
