A ThinkFilm Release

"The Event" is a bittersweet drama of
love, loss, and the amazing capacity
we have to prevail in the face of
tragedy. Set in Manhattan's fashionable
Chelsea district, among the
neighborhood's large and varied gay
population, the film is an intricately
structured inquiry into one man's
death that becomes a celebration of
his life. Directed by Thom Fitzgerald,
who earned worldwide acclaim for his
haunting debut feature,
"The Hanging Garden," "The Event"
confirms his status as a filmmaker of rare sensitivity, elegance, and heart. At once utterly contemporary, yet completely timeless in its concerns, the film boasts a large ensemble cast headed by such award-winning actors as Parker Posey, Olympia Dukakis, Sarah Polley, Don McKellar, Jane Leeves and Brent Carver, all of whom contribute enormously to the film's towering emotional power. Fitzgerald co-wrote "The Event" with Steven Hillyer and Tim Marback, and produced the film with Bryan Hofbauer.
