Human lives grappling with all the flavors of existential despair intersect in a deadpan collage of comic suffering. Director Steve Collins weaves together a series of bizarrely and sometimes touching vignettes into an entirely original and unexpected comic universe. You might not know what’s happening all the time, but we’ve all been there through the dark and despairing moments in our lives. This film will remind you that even the slimy guy on the couch can feel your pain. Another classically odd fairy tale of awkwardness from the wild mind of Steve Collins.


Steve Collins wrote and directed the feature You Hurt My Feelings, a New York Times critics pick that screened at Cucalorus in 2012. His first feature Gretchen, won Best Narrative Feature at the Los Angeles Film Festival. Collins has taught filmmaking at UT Austin, and presently heads the production department at Wesleyan University.
