Directed by Colin Hovde
Featuring Regina Aquino and Josh Adams
In the wake of a mass shooting, lone survivor Claire yearns to find the compassion, understanding, and peace she needs to overcome her trauma—but thoughts and visions of the shooter haunt her every step. A timely exploration of violence, obsession, and our desire to fathom the unfathomable, The Events excavates the humanity found even in circumstances of extraordinary evil, examining the actors on both sides of an unimaginable tragedy.
Claire. Something I haven’t told anyone. Mainly because I haven’t been able to put it into words. Or at least, I can put it into words but the words I would have to put it into are words that people might think sound weird, or mad.
The Boy. If I’m going to make a mark on the world I have to do it now.
The only means I have are art or violence.
And I was never any good at drawing.
