NEWSROOM POST:  LAMBERTVILLE, NJ

(Lambertville, NJ) – Join the Acme Screening Room on Saturday July 22 for the Lambertville Zine Con 11-5pm followed by a screening of Funny Pages with post screening QnA with writer and director Owen Kline. The first Lambertville Zine Con, in support of local non-profit Soupcon Salon, will feature over 20 artist/vendors during the afternoon. The focus is creating a place for independent creators and small press. At 6pm, will be a screening of the film Funny Pages, a coming-of-age black comedy film written, directed, and edited by Owen Kline and produced by the Safdie brothers. It premiered at the 2022 Cannes Film Festival. Owen will be joining us in person for a QnA after the film. The film tells the story of a 17-year-old cartoonist Robert, who leaves home after the death of his mentor to forge his own path. He moves to a basement apartment in Trenton, New Jersey and meets Wallace, a possibly unstable former cartoonist.

 

Admission to the Zine Con is free. Movie and QnA Tickets are $15 or $10 for members.
