Join us for the Austin Premiere of MORTIFIED NATION! This screening will be followed by a live Q&A with the filmmakers.

MORTIFIED NATION is a documentary about adults who share their most embarrassing, private childhood writings… in front of total strangers. The film blends performance footage with an examination of the rise of Mortified stage shows, and chronicles how the simple act of exposing one’s private past can inspire an entire nation to "share the shame."

Transporting viewers back to a time of awkward firsts-- first love, first rejection, first total freak out-- the film captures the adolescent experience in a way few of us truly remember and most of us tried to forget.
