Helen’s Dead

Upon discovering her asshole boyfriend, Adam (EMILE HIRSCH),is sleeping with her cousin, Helen (MATILDA LUTZ), aimless twenty something Addie (DYLAN GELULA) shows up at a dinner party to confront both Helen and Adam only to discover Helen is dead and everyone is a suspect. From “canceled” lifestyle influencer Leila (ANNABELLE DEXTER-JONES) to her shady, much older, husband George (BRIAN HUSKEY), to overly friendly wannabe actor Garrett (OLIVER COOPER), even her own boyfriend and an actual ex-con named Henry (TYRESE GIBSON), Addie must make it through a night of upwardly mobile entitlement and an absurdly shocking level of millennial apathy.
Oct 22


This unique cinematic experience dives deep into an artist’s work and reveals his life path, inspiration, and creative process. It explores his fascination with myth and history. Past and present are interwoven to diffuse the line between film and painting, allowing the audience to be completely immersed in the remarkable world of one of the greatest contemporary artists, Anselm Kiefer. Wim Wenders shot this unique portrait over the course of two years in stunning 3D.
