THE UDMURTS by David Zellnik
Directed by Barbara Zahora
Nate, a runaway teen from Florida, finds his way to the ramshackle Queens apartment of Mrs. Huff, a once-glamorous foreign actress, living in exile from a (real) place called Udmurtia...and also to Clem, a child of the “One Percent” who promises Nate a way out of poverty. A dark, funny, and suspenseful journey, THE UDMURTS explores how we find home – and hope – in a collapsing world.
