Meet the Makers Thursday: “Humpday”’s Lynn Shelton, Mark Duplass & Josh Leonard

Filmmaker Lynn Shelton and actors Mark Duplass (“The Puffy Chair”) and Joshua Leonard (“The Blair Witch Project”) will discuss their new film, “Humpday.” Tomorrow at the Apple Store, Soho (103 Prince Street at Greene). The conversation with be moderated by indieWIRE’s Eugene Hernandez.

WHEN: Thursday, June 25th at 6:00 p.m. Free.

THE FILM: It’s been a decade since Ben (Duplass) and Andrew (Leonard) were the bad boys of their college campus. Ben has settled down and found a job, wife, and home. Andrew took the alternate route as a vagabond artist, skipping the globe from Chiapas to Cambodia. When Andrew shows up unannounced on Ben’s doorstep, they easily fall back into their old dynamic of macho one-upmanship. Late into the night at a wild party, the two find themselves locked in a mutual dare: to enter an amateur porn contest together. But what kind of boundary-breaking, envelope pushing porn can two straight dudes make? After the booze and “big talk” run out, only one idea remains-they will have sex together…on camera. It’s not gay; it’s beyond gay. It’s not porn; it’s art. But how exactly will it work? And more importantly, who will tell Anna (Delmore), Ben’s wife?
