Dir. Peter Stray | Comedy / Horror / Sci-Fi | U.K. | 2017 | 80 min.

New Year’s Eve may be festive, but not for a group of drunken friends in Wales. This funny, action-packed sci-fi/horror film pits the bunch against invading, time-traveling aliens. Vineyard summer resident and U.K. native Peter Stray writes and directs this genre-bender that takes place in Wales, Vietnam, Martha’s Vineyard, and Washington, D.C. Up-and-coming actors from film and television, and some Vineyarders, play the hilarious group of misfits who must work together to save themselves—and the world.

This is a special pay-what-you-can screening.


Preceded by David Henry Gerson’s Student Academy Award-winning short film All These Voices
When a young Nazi finds a theater troupe of survivors celebrating the end of WWII in an abandoned Polish theater, he is forced to realize his role in their grief. "Beautiful and harrowing." —The Huffington Post
