Screening Thursday 4/20
Carla, a seasoned wedding photographer, has just been dumped – right before she needs to shoot a wedding. Unable to hold back her feelings any more, she loses it in front of a happy bride and groom. She turns to her best friend, Kayla, who is about to go through the proceedings for a nasty, painful divorce and begs Kayla to let her shoot the impending un-coupling. Carla becomes obsessed with this new idea and word of the divorce photographer spreads like wildfire. It’s all about honesty: as long as Carla doesn’t have to be honest with herself. Divorce Photographer is a comedy that explores the flip side of marriage, the pressures exerted on people to be in a relationship, and the decision to find happiness in your own way.
