The Department of World Languages and Literatures, the ASL Program, the ASL Club, and Center for Student Accessibility present the film In the Can on Friday, Apr. 28 in teh Center for the Arts (Building 1P) Recital Hall at 7:00pm.

Nicky, an aspiring young director, has the dream of every filmmaker: that one day he’d make it big in Hollywood. His dream suddenly comes true in the form of a mysterious stranger, Lou Lumire, who is a self-proclaimed Hollywood producer. Lumire has the ultimate once-in-a-lifetime offer for Nicky: to direct his very first feature film production. After the ink dries on the contract, Nicky realizes that there’s one catch: in order for him to finally live out his dream, he has to arrange everything by himself–hire the actors and crew, rent the filmmaking equipment, and write a screenplay within a matter of several days, which is a proposition very daunting even for a seasoned filmmaker. Running against time to pull off his own movie, Nicky’s sanity teeters on the edge until he finds out a surprising revelation about Lou Lumire. He discovers that Lumire is not who he said he is. Also, a tragic situation with one of the actors ultimately blows up in Nicky’s face. Trapped by his bad luck and ill-fated decisions, Nicky struggles to find a way out of the serious chaos into which he got himself.

The film will be in full ASL with subtitles. There will also be a Q&A after the film.

Refreshments will be provided.
