Jasper Indie Grits Picks, Day 2: Paperback (4/15, 9:30pm, 4/16 2pm)


Amid a deep slate of films on Day 2 of Indie Grits, we want to highlight one of the few narrative features that dot the festival’s lineup, Adam Bowers’ Paperback. On spec it looks like a romantic comedy crossed with wry slacker existentialism, but one of the great things about Indie Grits curation is that they tend to pick films that subvert such expectations.

Personally, I’ve always a bit bowled over by truly independent narrative features. The amount of time, money, and energy which go into making them without studio backing is astounding, and it’s a tremendous artistic achievement to go through all that for an uncertain screening future. It’s also something that, given the overwhelming amount of movies and television we have access to, is far too easy to take for granted.
