Members-Only Screening: Ghostlight

You’re invited to join us for a theatrical screening of Ghostlight, including an in-person conversation with writer/director Kelly O’Sullivan, director Alex Thompson and actors Keith Kupferer, Tara Mallen and Katherine Mallen Kupferer, moderated by Rachel Bleemer (Director of Programming and Events, Film Independent).

When melancholic construction worker Dan finds himself drifting from his wife and daughter, he discovers community and purpose in a local theater’s production of Romeo and Juliet. As the drama onstage starts to mirror his own life, he and his family are forced to confront a personal loss.

The film premiered at the 2024 Sundance Film Festival and went on to screen at SXSW.

From IFC Films, Ghostlight opens in theatres on June 14.
