Attention “Martha Marcy May Marlene” fans: If you’re in New York tonight and want to see the film that inspired the Sundance breakout and made a star out of Elizabeth Olsen, then come to the Film Society of Lincoln Center for a special talk hosted by the Indiewire and The Playlist, starting at 7pm EST (go here for more details).
As we announced earlier, “Martha Marcy May Marlene” writer-director Sean Durkin will be on hand to present the short film, “Mary Last Seen,” which preceded his acclaimed feature debut and gave him the impetus to get “Martha Marcy May Marlene” off the ground. He will be joined by cinematographer Drew Innis and actress Alexia Rasmussen.
The prequel sheds light on how the cult at the center of “Martha Marcy May Marlene” recruits its members. It follows a young woman who embarks on a road trip with her boyfriend, only to discover that their destination is not what was initially promised.
The ampitheater only seats 75, so make sure to get there early. But if you can’t make it or don’t live nearby, you can sign up to unlock and watch the short at exactly 7pm EST, by registering here. You will not be able to see it before then; this one is appointment viewing only.
Durkin will be joined by cinematographer Drew Innis and actress Alexia Rasmussen for an in-person Q&A after the screening. Indiewire and The Playlist will be streaming the Q&A live and taking your questions via Twitter. Follow us on Twitter and use the hashtag #marylastseen tonight to participate.
“Martha Marcy May Marlene” hits Blu-ray and DVD Tuesday, February 21. Go here to read our interview with Durkin.
