Just when you think the coming-of-age genre has been exhausted comes this darkly comedic rom-com that offers a fresh twist on the vampire genre. Directed by first-time feature director Ariane Louis-Seize, Humanist Vampire Seeking Consentual Suicidal Person introduces us to Sasha, a vampire who rebels against her family’s expectations by refusing to hunt for blood.

When Sasha befriends Paul, a melancholic bowling alley attendant, their unlikely alliance takes on a new dimension. What starts as a simple agreement transforms into a nocturnal adventure as Sasha and Paul embark on a quest to fulfill Paul’s final wishes before sunrise.

Humanist Vampire Seeking Consensual Suicidal Person blends deadpan gallows humor, a deranged romance, and VAMPIRES (!) in a way that is sure to charm audiences. With its witty premise and endearing characters, this film promises to resonate with the inner goth teenager in everyone’s heart. Screening Support: Independent Film Festival Boston
