PRODUCED BY: 3311 Productions

James looks like a typical geek – he has long hair, tasteless glasses and all too short t-shirts. His room is a museum of the ‘90s: the walls are plastered with posters and shelves are packed with VHS tapes. Each day, he watches an episode of his favorite show, “Brigsby Bear”. He feels normal. But… he doesn’t know anyone normal. Dave McCary’s film is both a postcard from the last years of the previous century and a funny, yet often serious story about building one’s world anew. “Brigsby Bear” is the inverse of Lenny Abrahamson’s Oscar-winning “Room” and shows that the past – whatever it was – shapes our identity.

The screening will be combined with a few words opening the festival and short prize deal in the KTW 30[s] film competition.
