Q&A with director Vuk Lungulov-Klotz

Free, members-only screening!

Join us for a special Pride preview of Sundance award-winning Mutt (2023), preceded by this was supposed to be a film about you (dir. Juan Barquin, 2022) and it had to be you (dir. Juan Barquin + Trae Delellis, 2022) – two short films about queer relationships.

Over the course of 24 breathless hours in New York City, twentysomething trans guy Feña (newcomer Lío Mehiel, winner of a Special Jury Award at Sundance for their performance) must contend with an onslaught of aggravations, surprise encounters, and emotional choices. Laundromats, subway turnstiles, and airport transfers are the hectic background to this emotional drama that overlaps past, present, and future. Mutt earns its most difficult discussions through its tenderness toward each character’s struggle with the complexity of trans life, Latinx life in America, and human life at large.

Followed by a reception in the Jane Peck Gallery.

The Jacob Burns Film Center is grateful to Wine Enthusiast for providing the wines for this reception. Wine Enthusiast is the ultimate source of innovation & information about wine. They exemplify not only an unwavering commitment to quality but an extraordinary way of life.

"Mutt deserves to be heard."
Nick Allen,
"A warm and open performance from actor Lío Mehiel, coupled with a steady authenticity and emotional truthfulness, make Mutt an appealing 24-hours-in-New-York drama from newcomer Vuk Lungulov-Klotz."
