"New Low" Film Screening and Live Video Q & A w/ Director Adam Bowers

Published Jimmy - Wed, 12/22/2010 - 9:12pm

"New Low," produced, directed by and starring former Gainesville resident Adam Bowers, is a neurotic relationship comedy that was an Official Selection for the 2010 Sundance Film Festival. It was filmed in a variety of locations in the Gainesville area, including the Civic Media Center.

This screening will feature a live internet video chat with director Adam Bowers immediately following the film.

Here is a brief description of the film written by Charlie Reff for the Sundance Film Festival:

"The worst thing about Wendell isn't his slightly balding head, skinny frame, or thin lips; it's that he's a bit of an idiot. He just started dating Vicky, an angry drunk, who conveniently shares his lack of ambition and cleanliness. But he might prefer a relationship with Joanna because she's a selfless social worker who doesn't have lip acne. Eventually, Wendell is going to have to decide who he really belongs with: the best girl he's ever known—or the worst.

Twenty-five-year-old Adam Bowers writes, directs, and stars in this deadpan comedic love triangle for questionable romantics, which was shot on borrowed equipment by whichever one of his friends was available that day. This sharply scripted debut feature out of Gainesville, Florida, charms with Bowers's natural comedic timing and endless supply of one-liners while questioning not only who we should spend our life with but who we truly are under all our neuroses."
