3rd Street Blackout

Join Indievents and Club David, Wednesday, June 29, for the South Dakota Premiere of 3rd Street Blackout!

3rd Street Blackout is an ultra-modern romantic comedy set against the black-drop of the fabled post-Sandy power outage that hit the northeast. Farsad and Redleaf play Mina and Rudy, an incredibly tech-savvy couple (she is a neuroscientist and TED-talker, and he is an app developer) who have recently begun living together in a Third Street tenement walk-up in NYC. Since they do absolutely everything on computers and a host of other digital devices, when Hurricane Sandy hits, they are shocked to discover that they can no longer use their prior--and primary--modes of communication. When they have a spat, and Rudy decamps to Brooklyn, they are each forced to resort to new (meaning old) ways of connecting to people and, with the help of friends, neighbors, and assorted East Village denizens, they try to make their way back to one another.

Negin Farsad ("The Muslims Are Coming!," "Nerdcore Rising," TED Fellow) directs the film she co-writes and costars in with Jeremy Redleaf (Streamy Award Winner "Odd Jobs," "Sesame Street"). The film also stars Ed Weeks ("The Mindy Project"), Phyllis Somerville ("Little Children"), Janeane Garofalo ("Wet Hot American Summer") John Hodgman ("Pitch Perfect 2," "The Daily Show") Jordan Carlos ("The Nightly Show") Sasheer Zamata ("Saturday Night Live").

The screening will be held at Club David in Sioux Falls on Wednesday, June 29, 2016, and will begin at 7:00 p.m. Tickets are $8 in advance and $12 at the door. You can purchase advance tickets at Club David, Zandbroz, The Last Stop CD Shop, or online at EventBrite (click button below).
