Stupid F##cking Bird

By Aaron Posner
Directed by Dmitry Troyanovsky
Sort of adapted from The Seagull by Anton Chekhov


An aspiring young director rampages against the art created by his mother’s generation. A young actress wrestles with an aging star for the affections of a renowned novelist. And everyone discovers just how disappointing love, art, and growing up can be. In this irreverent, contemporary, and very funny remix, Posner explores the timeless battle between young and old, past and present, in search of the true meaning of it all.  Consider how art and love fuel your own pursuit of happiness!
