Includes a conversation with directors Tyler Nilson and Michael Schwartz, moderated by Jacqueline Lyanga, Film Independent Artistic Director
Peanut Butter Falcon is an adventure story set in the world of a modern Mark Twain that begins when Zak, a young man with Down syndrome, runs away from his home at a nursing facility to chase his dream of attending the wrestling school of The Salt Water Redneck and becoming a pro wrestler. Through circumstances beyond his control, Tyler – a small time outlaw on the run – becomes Zak’s unlikely coach and ally. Together, they wind through deltas while eluding capture… they drink whiskey, catch fish, find God and convince Eleanor, a kind nursing home employee with a tale of her own, to join them on their journey.
2019, 93 minutes, color, DCP | Written and directed Tyler Nilson and Michael Schwartz; with Shia Labeouf, Dakota Johnson and Zack Gottsagen
