Q&A with directors Ben Chace & Sam Fleischner and actors Sam Bones and Norah Jones
Directed by Ben Chace & Sam Fleischner
With Sean Bones, Norah Jones, Carl Bradshaw
US, 2009, 75 min
Brooklyn hipster Max’s (Sean Bones) girlfriend (played by Norah Jones) dumps him just days before their Caribbean cruise. Bummed, but determined to make the most of it, Max sets sail alone for Jamaica, where, after having all his stuff stolen and literally missing the boat, he embarks on a crosscountry, philosophical journey that yields surprising revelations. Directors Chace and Fleischner capture both the exhilaration and anxiety of being a stranger in a strange land where the 2008 US presidential election becomes an unexpected catalyst for crosscultural connection. This reggae-infused odyssey features music and appearances by MGMT, Santigold, The Congos, Yeasayer, and more.
