Q&A with director John Koch after the screening.
"The Red Goodnight" is a neo-noir fever dream that twists reality and enters the mind of a doomed man. Freddy (Nick Zibro) is a boxer trying to make it in the big city. After inadvertently committing a horrendous act, he must face the consequences of what he has done, and is desperate to hide his actions from his kind-hearted neighbor Jill (Ana Ribeiro). Those whom he once trusted have become dangerous adversaries in the blink of an eye. With nowhere left to turn, the forces of lust and darkness are closing in and Freddy must find the way out of this labyrinth of his own making.
The short film Guard will play before The Red Goodnight.
