Don’t miss this special screening of Wristcutters: A Love Story, based on Etgar Keret’s short story, “Kneller’s Happy Campers,” and cowritten and directed by Goran Dukic. Enter a bizarre afterlife reserved for suicides, in this strangely uplifting, darkly comic tale about a journey through the hereafter. This is a world where everyone still bears the scars earned from the manner in which they killed themselves, while the everyday reality is a twisted mirror image of our own mortal world.
