Cast and Crew will be present for a Q&A.
Tomorrow Ever After, 95min, 2016
Shaina lives 600 years in the future. War, greed, prejudice, poverty, pollution, violence, loneliness, depression – these are things that she’s read about in history books. When an accident in a physics experiment sends her on a time-travel journey to our times, she assumes that everyone around her is honest, generous and caring, as she recruits the help that she needs to get back home
334 Amsterdam Ave
Tues, Oct 3 7PM
Reviews and Awards:
Her writing and direction are resourceful and assured, and her performance is as delightful as it is imbued with political commentary …In its sweet but pointed way, saying a good deal with relatively little, and in unpredictable ways, the film is also a critique of art as corporate product, especially in the realm of sci-fi franchise extravaganzas.
— THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER
One of the most entertaining, provocative, and original sci-films of the year.
— NYC MOVIE GURU
Ela Thier brings a fresh perspective …Thier plays the kooky interloper with the same open and unguarded childlike naiveté as Robin Williams’ beloved alien Mork …Ultimately, “Tomorrow Ever After,” contains a hopeful message that somehow, the world just might end up a better place.
— LOS ANGELES TIMES
Built around Thier’s dignity and gentle humor… she emanates charismatic warmth and seems genuinely engaged with the film’s theme of compassion in an era of despair.
— THE VILLAGE VOICE
Thier’s sensibility offers such a welcome break… inviting audiences to see our modern-day world through fresh eyes.
Played with touching insight and natural beauty …provided me with a newfound hopefulness and a new sense of wonder for my fellow humans.
