SUN DON'T SHINE with Q&A (FILM at the Erie Art Museum)
November 6 SUN DON'T SHINE (2013) and short film WHEN WE LIVED IN MIAMI (2013)
Written and Directed by Amy Seimetz who will be joining us for a Skype Q&A
Sponsored by Whole Foods Co-op
Written and directed by actress/filmmaker Amy Seimetz (Tiny Furniture, Upstream Color and Pit Stop), Sun Don't Shine follows Crystal (Kate Lyn Sheil) and her boyfriend Leo (Kentucker Audley) on a tense and mysterious road trip through the desolate yet hauntingly beautiful landscape of central Florida. From the outset, the purpose of their journey is unclear, and the motivations behind their heated altercations and shady errands are hazy, but sporadic moments of tenderness illuminate the loving bond between the two that exists underneath their overt tensions. As the couple travels up the Gulf Coast past an endless panorama of mangrove fields, trailer parks, and cookie-cutter housing developments, the disturbing details of their excursion gradually begin to emerge, revealing Crystal's sinister past and the couple's troubling future. Filmed on location in the environs of Seimetz's hometown of St. Petersburg, Florida, Sun Don't Shine is a subtly cryptic story driven by the powerful performances of its lead actors and its eerily poetic setting. Named as Indiewire's #1 undistributed film in 2012.

Written and Directed by Amy Seimetz. Starring AJ Bowen, Kate Lyn Sheil, Kentucker Audley. Not Rated. 90 minutes. English.
