KISSING ON THE MOUTH
Free for IFP and Facets members!
"It covers many layers of relationships in a way I've never seen before" -Film Threat
"A pleasingly laconic slice of post-collegiate life...with intermittent showers of fucking" -New City Chicago
"An unvarnished, unprotected look at sex in the city" -Chicago Tribune
Chicago filmmaker Joe Swanberg's Kissing on the Mouth is a confrontational and startling film that pulls out all the stops in the way it explores issues of sex and infidelity within post-college relationships. Ellen is sleeping with her ex-boyfriend and trying to ignore the fact that he's looking for more than just sex. Her roommate, Patrick, isn't helping matters with his secretive and jealous behavior. The small cast served as the only crew on this intimate, often humorous film featuring frank dialogue, explicit sex, and real interviews with recent college graduates.
Directed by Joe Swanberg, 2005, USA, 78 min.
Please join us for a pre-screening workshop with filmmakers Joe Swanberg, Kris Williams, Kate Winterich and Kevin Pittman at 6pm.
