Current LALA resident Eva H.D. presents “Jackals & Fireflies”, a 20-minute city suite, a poetic cinematic essay, directed by Charlie Kaufman and written and performed by Eva herself. A woman wanders the streets of New York City, takes buses and trains, sits in bars and coffee shops, experiencing the city’s diverse neighborhoods, while thinking about her life, her loneliness, unrequited love. She finds moments of communion with various people she meets along the way and with the city itself.
A Q&A with Eva and Charlie will follow, moderated by film poetry researcher Fil Ieropoulos. Doors open at 20:30, the event starts at 21:00
