Join PJFF for a special evening with director/writer/actor and rising star Alex Karpovsky and his new film RED FLAG. In this hilarious blur of art and life, Alex Karpovsky (Girls, Tiny Furniture, Inside Llewyn Davis, Supporting Characters) plays an exaggerated version of himself, an indie filmmaker named Alex Karpovsky who is at a crossroads with his estranged girlfriend as he’s about to embark on a Southern film tour of his real-life mockumentary Woodpecker. Trekking across college campuses and art house theaters through six states below the Mason-Dixon Line, Karpovsky picks up an old acquaintance and an unexpected over-zealous fan fatale, while tripping over his own demons and anxieties. Part existential meta-comedy, part misbegotten road movie, RED FLAG is a painfully funny meditation on love, commitment, and the human inability to change.
