How You Living?

Coming on March 24

Run Time: 93 min.

Welcome to the Sunday morning shorts block! BUFF is thrilled to have brought together this line-up of films from the US, Canada, and Switzerland.

I say “brought together” but, really, these films escaped.

These tales of apartment dwellers, office workers, mistreated Martians, folks just needing a moment to unwind, and a wayward parrot have all escaped. Having had it with their respective situations, they roam free now. But you can meet them all at the Brattle Theatre on March 24th where they will tell you their stories and ask, “How are you living?”
