The US premiere of BUZZ by Benjamin Kunkel (n+1 co-founder and best-selling author), directed by Lian Walden.

"It's like human is the new dinosaur."
"Won't they need art, in the future? Maybe they'll have forgotten how to mix oil paints, they've forgotten musical notation, nobody's even heard of digital video.

Come sail the high seas with The Pumpkin Pie Show! An outbreak of norovirus quickly spreads through the passengers and crew onboard a luxury cruise-liner, including the captain, cutting short this sunny sojourn through the tropics. But before the ship can dock at the nearest port, tensions escalate amongst the frantic passengers. The foundation of civil society quickly deteriorates—dividing everyone onboard into two separate camps: those who are sick and those who aren’t. As the ship veers far off course and the number of ill passengers rises, one family must fight for their survival onboard this sun-and-blood drenched cruise into madness.
