7:00 PM - 9:00 PM A Screening of "Uneven Strings"
The Suffolk Cinema Series presents: Uneven Strings

Uneven Strings is a short film written, directed, and produced by three friends, Matthew Fleming, Justin Callahan, and Joseph Serra in the summer of 2011. Attending Suffolk University together, Matt, Justin, and Joe got to know one another in and out of class where they were able to combine their creative talents on multiple projects. Matt was always writing short scripts, Justin was a master with the camera, and Joe was the person who brought it all together. After graduating from Suffolk, Matt got busy writing a screenplay that would later become known as Uneven Strings and enlisted the help of Justin and Joe to make it all come together. They are excited about Uneven Strings and the opportunity to enter it into festivals across the country and get it out there!

The screening will be followed by Q & A with Filmmakers. This event is sponsored by the Communication and Journalism Department.

A man's return home for his father's funeral brings about destructive behavior and a blurred state of reality.
