Antonio Santini, Dan Sickles | U.S.A. | 101
Dina, an outspoken and eccentric 49-year-old in suburban Philadelphia, invites her fiancé Scott, a Walmart door greeter, to move in with her. Having grown up neurologically diverse in a world blind to the value of their experience, the two are head-over-heels for one another, but shacking up poses a new challenge. Scott freezes when it comes to physical intimacy, and Dina, a Kardashians fanatic, wants nothing more than to share with Scott all she’s learned about sensual desire from books, TV shows, and her previous marriage. Her increasingly creative forays to draw Scott close keep hitting roadblocks—exposing anxieties, insecurities, and communication snafus while they strive to reconcile their conflicting approaches to romance and intimacy.An Orchard release.
A versatile singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, Peppina was born and raised in Helsinki, Finland, and composes in both English and her native tongue. A talented vocalist who plays piano, guitar, and classical flute, Peppina's dulcet, radio-ready folk-pop first found success via actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt's open collaboration website/production company hitRECord. Impressed with what he heard, Levitt invited the young artist to Los Angeles to perform her single "We Can Go Back Again" live on hitRECord on TV, and the following year, Peppina flew to New York to begin work on her debut EP, the self-funded Follow Your Gravity. Released in early 2015, the EP included the singles "Time Standing Still" and "What You Are Will Show."
