Lesbian Aliens and Dignified Death

After getting plenty of sleep last night and waking up at 11 this morning I traipsed downstairs for some toast and orange juice. After eating and going through an interview with some Sundance filmmakers, Gabby and I slipped away to see “Codependent Lesbian Space Alien Seeks Same”. It was kind of a running joke that we were going to see it and we assumed that it would be awful but we bought popcorn and wondered what we were about to see as the lights dimmed. It turned out to shock us in that it was quirky, campy, and humorous in an unassuming and charming way. We found ourselves laughing and smiling at nearly the entirety of it and decided it will most likely go on to be a cult hit. The filmmakers were energized and excited about it and it was obvious they had a lot of fun doing it and it carried across through the film. Gabby and I got pictures with them, talked with the on the bus ride back and parted ways.

In a complete 180, later on Will Anderson, Gabby and I went to see “How to Die In Oregon” a documentary about the assisted suicide law in Oregon. The film followed one main character named Cody who was a woman with advancing liver cancer who battled with the idea of assisted suicide. Throughout the film were examples of other people who embraced it or rejected the idea and their struggles with it. It was very sad but a fantastically made movie and I found something in my eye as the film ended…
