Michael Stone—husband, father, and respected author—is a man crippled by the mundanity of his life. On a business trip to Cincinnati, where he's scheduled to speak at a convention of customer service professionals, he checks into the Fregoli Hotel. There, he is amazed to discover a possible escape from his desperation in the form of an unassuming Akron baked goods sales rep, Lisa, who may or may not be the love of his life. One of the most innovative and critically acclaimed movies of the year, Anomalisa is a darkly comedic and surreal stop-motion journey of a man's long night of the soul, and confirms both Charlie Kaufman's place amongst the most important of American filmmakers and announces Duke Johnson as a major creative force. The Festival is pleased to present a screening of the film, followed by a conversation and Q&A with the filmmakers. Separately, there is a panel where they explain their creative process and how they brought their extraordinary film to life.
