Don’t miss the Q&A…

After you register for this screening, be sure to register for the follow-up event, Members-Only Q&A: The Stranger, featuring a conversation with writer/director/executive producer Veena Sud and cinematographer Paul Yee. (Wednesday, June 3 – 3:00 pm PT)

A young rideshare driver and recent transplant to LA picks up a mysterious passenger in the Hollywood hills. Sparks fly between the driver, Clare, and her passenger who flirtatiously offers, “Ask me anything, I’m an open book.” A thrilled Clare wonders if he might be famous since he lives in such a beautiful mansion. The passenger, aptly named Carl E., says that he actually has no idea who lives in that house. Clare is confused so Carl E. explains: he was randomly dropped off at the house, rang the doorbell and when the woman who lives there answered, “I shot her in the face”. Terrified, knowing she’s just picked up a stone cold sociopath, Clare is in the worst trouble of her young life. What follows is a heart-stopping ride with the stranger that unfolds over 12 hours as she navigates the seedy underbelly of Los Angeles in a chilling game of cat and mouse.

2020, 13 episodes, 97 minutes, Color I Written and directed by Veena Sud; with Maika Monroe, Dane DeHaan, Avan Jogia
