With writer/director John Sayles in attendance!

Two friends, Bernice and Fontayne, were so close while growing up they ‘go for sisters’, but then lose track of each other for twenty years.

They are reunited when Bernice is assigned as the parole officer for Fontayne, who is fresh out of prison and fighting heroin addiction. But Bernice has an even more threatening problem.

With a small budget this is a return to the guerilla style of filmmaking familiar to John Sayles from his early 80’s films RETURN OF THE SECAUCUS SEVEN, LIANNA and  BROTHER FROM ANOTHER PLANET.

Join us for a special night with Sayles, who will be here for a post-screening Q&A!

Don't miss the AFS presentation of MATEWAN with John Sayles in attendance on 12/8!
