Chicago Mental Filmness 2022 Season Finale – Stay With Me Screening And Q & A With Writer-Director Marty Lang, 11/12, 2:00 PM @ Edgewater Library

Hey Chicago, Mental Filmness homeland!

Don’t forget our last event of the 2022 festival season is tomorrow, 2:00 p.m., at the Edgewater branch of the Chicago Public Library. I’m trying to do a last-minute push to ensure that Marty Lang, who is kind and passionate enough to travel here from Memphis to speak about his film, gets an audience to ask him some Q’s!

Stay With Me, a film about a young woman struggling with an unspecified mental illness and the friends coping with the aftermath of her suicide, felt like one of the more relatable films in the festival to me. It had a lot of warmth, some humor, and some impressive writing and acting for an indie drama which made the characters feel very much like real people. I think it’s entertaining and engaging, and a great pick for a live screening.

Writer-director Marty Lang will be in attendance for a discussion after the film and I am very interested to hear his thoughts about it.

This program is sponsored by the Diversability Advocacy Committee of the Chicago Public Library. It screens as part of Mental Filmness, a Chicago-based film festival about mental health. 

And as always, it’s free! Hope to see you there.
