Friday, August 18 – Thursday, August 24

(2017) dir Bill Watterson w/Meera Rohit Kumbhani, Nick Thune, Adam Busch, Stephanie Allynne, James Urbaniak, Kirsten Vangsness, Rick Overton [80 min; DCP]
Dave (Thune), an artist who has yet to complete anything significant in his career, builds a cardboard fort in his living room out of pure frustration, only to wind up trapped by the fantastical pitfalls of his own creation. Ignoring his warnings, Dave’s girlfriend Annie (Kumbhani) leads a band of oddball explorers on a rescue mission. Once inside, they find themselves trapped in an ever-changing supernatural world, threatened by booby traps and pursued by a bloodthirsty Minotaur.

Filled with pop culture references, flights of fantasy, and impressive amounts of craft-store-gore, DAVE MADE A MAZE is an incredibly fun first feature from writer/director Bill Watterson that ranks with the films of Michel Gondry for sheer handmade imagination.

“A visually inventive tour-de-force of anarchic glee…a marvelous gem of an indie comedy, its cinematic treasures a treat for all.” – Hammer To Nail

“Wildly inventive…an impressively crafted feature that’s full of frequent surprises.” – The Hollywood Reporter

“One of the most vivid, imaginative, and original movie worlds in recent cinema…We have the makings of a stone-cold cult classic with this one.” – The Young Folks

“There aren’t sufficient words to describe the remarkable visual environment; suffice it to say that the production designers are the stars here as much as the cast.” – Tom Russo, Boston Globe

🌯🌯🌯🌯½ “‘Dave Made a Maze’ is like a homemade ‘Labyrinth’ for adults!” – Scott Weinberg, Nerdist

WINNER: Audience Award for Best Feature, Boston Underground Film Festival 2017
