Midwest: Facing the Unknown

June 14, 2019 @ 6:15 PM - 7:40 PM

Andy’s Ghost, Eye on Forever, Inherent and Midwest are all films created by local student filmmakers Robbie Gonyea and Lucas Coniaris. Together, these four projects create a conversation about confronting things we don’t understand and challenge what the audience believes- as well as what they’re willing to believe in.

The filmmakers will host a Q&A after the screening.
