Sasha is a young vampire with a serious problem: she’s too sensitive to kill! When her exasperated parents cut off her blood supply, Sasha’s life is in jeopardy. Luckily, she meets Paul, a lonely teenager with suicidal tendencies who is willing to give his life to save hers. But their friendly agreement soon becomes a nocturnal quest to fulfill Paul’s last wishes before day breaks.

 

A 2023 festival darling, this hilariously deadpan Made in Quebec vampire coming of age tale is quite unlike anything you’ve seen before – a mix of teen angst, family drama, wry comedy, and moments of pure horror. Definitely more What We Do in the Shadows than Twilight, co-writer/director Ariane Loius-Seize has delivered an utterly charming and inventive feature film debut.

 

Doors/Volunteer Fair at 5:30PM. Film at 7PM.
Free admission.
