EARTH BREAK: A FEW SUGGESTIONS FOR SURVIVAL, WITH ADDITIONAL HINTS AND TIPS ABOUT HOW TO MAKE YOURSELF MORE COMFORTABLE DURING THE ALIEN APOCALYPSE

Science Fiction
After everyone she's ever known was killed in an alien invasion, Lynn Gellert (Jenny Slate) might be the last person left on Earth. She's not a survivalist, or even good at camping, but somehow she has to find what it takes to confront a dangerous and uncertain future. Her constant and only companion is the voice recorder she managed to salvage from her mother's house. Though she first recorded her voice hoping to find meaning in the wreckage of her life, she unexpectedly discovers a new and more important reason to document who she is and how she's managing to survive on a planet stalked by malevolent aliens.

After the Premiere Screening: a conversation with director Aaron Katz, writer Morgan Ormond and comedian, actor and author Jenny Slate. Moderated by Emily Yoshida.
