Sometimes I Think About Dying

This screening took place on Friday, February 16, 2024 at 9:00 pmYukon Theatre

Sometimes, Fran (Daisy Ridley, ‘Rey’ in The Force Awakens) thinks about dying. Spontaneously, preparedly, poetically, at the mercy of a snake or alone in the woods… Anything to save her from the drudgery of daily life.

An office drone in a sleepy Northwest coastal town, she goes about her days completely isolated from her coworkers, unable or unwilling to engage with their social rituals. A new hire, Dave, soon starts at the company. Funny and gregarious, he disrupts the established dynamic and befriends Fran. Suddenly, Fran glimpses something outside of her hardened shell. Lambert’s deadpan feature recalls the work of 1990s auteur Hal Hartley and the wonderful details in Fran’s world should stir you out of your ennui slumber.
