Hey Los Angeles Boing Boing readers! You are invited to a free and exclusive screening for Boing Boing's feature film, The Immortal Augustus Gladstone. It's this Saturday, February 8, 2014 from 7:30 PM to 9:30 PM (PST) at the Cinefamily Silent Movie Theatre on Fairfax in West Hollywood.
From the creator of Myst comes a genre-defying tale of mystery, alienation and love in the digital age. Meet Augustus Gladstone, an eccentric who craves celebrity and connection via social networks. Augustus charms his fans with claims of immortality and a glamorous life history. But a documentary film crew prods too deeply into Augustus’ private life, raising questions about truth, identity, and friendship.
After the screening, I will interview Robyn Miller, the writer, director, and star of the movie.
