Free Fall
Sunday, September 8, 1:30 p.m.
Venue: Walter Reade Theater

In his gripping and erotic feature debut, German director Stephan Lacant chronicles the pleasures and pitfalls of a tumultuous love affair between police officer Marc (Hanno Koffler, Summer Storm) and his training partner, Kay. At first Marc brushes off his attraction to his colleague as a fluke, but his feelings become evident the more time he spends away from his pregnant girlfriend, Bettina, inside motel rooms and in remote corners of the forest with Kay. Free Fall, which had its world premiere at the 2013 Berlin International Film Festival, explores the excitement of forbidden love as well as the consequences of secrecy and repression.

 

The Most Fun I’ve Ever Had With My Pants On
Sunday, September 8, 4:15 p.m.
Venue: Walter Reade Theater

Free-spirited young lesbian Andy (writer-director Drew Denny) and her reserved childhood friend Liv (Sarah Hagan, Freaks and Geeks) are traveling across the Southwest to scatter Andy’s father’s ashes. They start out building campfires, drinking, snuggling, and reminiscing about the good old days, but tensions arise as the trip progresses, forcing the duo to examine the core of their relationship. Are they friends or something more? Denny’s autobiographical comedy about connection, the open road, and, yes, how to have fun with your pants on, is a joyride of sweet twists and turns.
