One Year Lease (USA) 11 minutes – 1145

SHORT IN COMPETITION

Ahhh, renting an apartment in New York City, tiny, challenging spaces coupled with enormous rents are to be expected. The most eccentric of landlords directly above you with an itchy speed-dial finger? perhaps not as common. Told almost entirely through voice mail messages, One year Lease documents the travails of Brian, Thomas and Casper as they endure a year-long sentence with Rita the Cat-loving landlady. Sometimes the calls NOT coming from inside the house, BUT from the apartment upstairs, can be just as scary or, well, just downright bizarre.  9/5 5:00 p.m. – Sears Gallery;  9/5 8:00 p.m. – Eccles Concert Hall;  9/6 1:00 p.m. – Sears Gallery;  9/10 2:00 p.m. – Mesquite;  9/11 7:30 p.m. – Mesquite
