A new kind of screening of a beautiful film on a historic studio backlot. Wine and cheese with wonderful people. We will have a night to remember — bring friends!

Join us for the LA stop on our tour of gallery-style event screenings of Lily in the Grinder, a kaleidescopic, operatic exploration of sex, death, and time set to an original string quartet score. Watch the trailer here.

Previous audience members have said "One of the best uses of film I have ever seen" and "The closest I've seen film come to dreaming" but also called the film accessible, comprehensible, and enjoyable.

We will screen the film, do a Q&A, and then offer you the chance to watch a special version of the film with the score only, allowing you to experience it as a visual concert. There will be wine, courtesy of Drizly, and cheese before and after the screening.

We'll also be selling posters, DVDs, and VHS copies of the film.

You will also learn about Everythingis|Film, my new production company opening in San Francisco to create narrative feature films, product & kickstarter videos, and music videos

Ryan lives in Brooklyn and looks for a job, maybe in social media or something. He sits around the house, wanders New York City, and questions the point of his existence. Bridging experimental and narrative form, Lily is like attending a live string quartet concert that explodes into the visual field.

The film flits to the future and past and back while an original score, written in the style of Béla Bartók, tells its own piece of the story.

Draped in kaleidoscopic imagery and crackling with dark humor, Lily in the Grinder probes sex, death, and time. What if a human life is a static, four-dimensional entity that cannot be said to truly begin or end?

What if we already are everything we will ever be?
