The film is written by Lena Dunham, Emmy award nominated writer of the current HBO hit, Girls.
Dunham stars alongside her real life mother and sister in this refreshing and sharply observed comedy of life at the crossroads that is as painfully confessional as it is endlessly amusing.
After the screening Charlie Phillips, Marketplace Director of the Sheffield Doc Fest, will lead a Q&A with Kate Taylor from the Independent Cinema Office about the Mumblecore film movement.
22-year-old Aura returns home to her artist mother’s TriBeCa loft with the following: a useless film theory degree, 357 hits on her YouTube page, a boyfriend who’s left her to find himself at Burning Man, a dying hamster, and her tail between her legs. Luckily, her trainwreck childhood best friend never left home, the restaurant down the block is hiring, and ill-advised romantic possibilities lurk around every corner. A now almost legendary first feature that was heaped with critical praise and spotlighted a DIY strain of American independent filmmaking that has become known as Mumblecore.
