Shot in Brooklyn in 2006, the Independent Spirit Award-nominated Quiet City is a gentle masterpiece of naturalistic performances and poetic cinematography. Jamie (Erin Fisher) arrives in New York to visit a friend, but the friend is nowhere to be found. Charlie (Cris Lankenau) has just quit his job and isn't sure what's next in life. Their paths cross late at night on an empty subway platform. From this chance encounter, an unlikely connection is formed. They spend twenty-four hours together drifting to and from diners, parks, art galleries, and parties. Inflected with melancholy and hopefulness, Aaron Katz's second feature is a fully realized work of truly independent American cinema.
Dance Party, USA
In Dance Party, USA, Katz's impressionistic and audacious debut, apathetic teens Jessica (Anna Kavan) and Gus (Cole Pensinger) connect for a fleeting moment at a 4th of July party. Their relationship grows more complex when Gus reveals a disturbing secret. Delving into dark territory, Dance Party, USA is a raw, honest portrayal of teens struggling to confront questions of looming adulthood and sexual violence.

No, we only ship inside the US
Most orders for in-stock items take less than 24 hours to ship (may take longer if you place an order over the weekend). Pre-orders are shipped as soon as the product arrives. International pre-orders may not come in before the street date. This is especially true with Australian pre-orders.
We only use USPS for all shipments. If there is an issue after your order ships you will need to contact your local post office.
All items that come with a slipcover will say so in the product page.
Pre-orders will not say WITH SLIPCOVER until the product comes in.
Slipcovers are not guaranteed to be in mint condition.
If you can order it, it's either in stock or a pre-order. If an item is out of stock you will not be able to add it to your cart. It's rare but our inventory may not be correct. So in some cases an item may have to be shipped separately.
We do not sell bootlegs. All product arrives from the distributor or is directly from the filmmakers. All items are new and sealed. Some indie titles or signed editions may not have shrinkwrap.
