Co-Directors Ahmed Khawaja and Andre Puca in Person!
Tickets available at the door
We’re pleased to conclude this season of CineCache with a special screening of this recent film. Co-directed and co-written by and starring Brattle ‘alum’ Ahmed Khawaja, KASSANDRA WITH A K is a semi-autobiographical comedy with a healthy dose of self-conscious realism.
Nursing a broken heart, Ahmed decides he’s going to become a homeless spare-changer in a naïve, lovesick attempt to get over his first girlfriend, Kassandra. Being the hopeless romantic that he is, Ahmed also wants to make a film about his adventures and finally exorcise the memory of Kassandra. But he needs help, and that’s where his friend Andre comes in. Andre is a bit older than Ahmed and also interested in filmmaking, but, honestly, he’s kind of uptight. Andre is a curmudgeon, and a perfectionist. But he is always there for Ahmed… even if at times only as the perfect comic foil.
While KASSANDRA WITH A K is a story about the making of a movie, it is also the portrait of a young man trying to find an audience among the friends he employs to recreate his life’s experience. What he discovers is that he has no other audience but himself, except perhaps his best friend who is the only one willing to listen to him.
