Pushing Dead (10/22)

October 22, 2016 @ 8:00 pm

| $16

Pushing Dead

New York Premiere
Winner, Audience Award for Best Feature, Frameline

Dir: Tom E. Brown, US, 2016, 110 mins

James Roday and Danny Glover star in this sidesplitting pitch-black comedy that follows Dan, who has been HIV positive for 22 years, as he accidentally loses access to his medication and must lean on his idiosyncratic friends and family to make it through. Writer-director Tom E. Brown paints drolly honest images packed with offbeat charm. Roday, Glover, Robin Weigert, and Khandi Alexander gracefully bring this community of resilient recovery to life. PUSHING DEAD uses its impeccable comic timing to burst preconceptions of how to approach HIV on the big screen.

Writer: Tom E. Brown
Cast: James Roday, Danny Glover, Robin Weigert, Khandi Alexander
