Unidentified Objects 

Dir. Juan Felipe Zuleta, U.S. 2022, 100 mins. DCP. With Sarah Hay, Matthew Jeffers, Roy Abramsohn, Hamish Allan-Headley. Peter is an intellectual outsider with an edge. He lives as a loner, until an unexpected visit from his upbeat—and possibly unhinged—neighbor Winona forces him out of his shell and on an impromptu road trip to rural Canada. As they journey into the wilderness, the odyssey turns into a search for their place in the universe. Followed by a Q&A discussion with director Juan Felipe Zuleta, producer Masha Leonov, actor Matthew Jeffers, and actor Sarah Hay.
