Ready your home theater for a community (wink wink) Watch Party, hosted LIVE by special guest Yvette Nicole Brown (Community, The Odd Couple).  This is your last chance to stream this form-defying film LIVE on Stellar while chatting with the audience and artists throughout!  And this time, you will be in the excellent company of writer & star Danny Pudi (Community, Mythic Quest), director Arpita Mukherjee, and special guest host Yvette Nicole Brown…!

Drop all your questions in the chat, because after the film, Yvette will lead a conversation on how Danny and Arpita transformed a collection of stories about Danny’s dad into a film unlike any you’ve seen before.  They’ll do a deep dive into the joys and challenges of process, the experience of filmmaking in the time of COVID, and the importance of community in art-making. 

About the Film

A new film written by Danny Pudi (Community, Mythic Quest), RUNNING follows Danny as he sets out to uncover the story of his estranged father.  Piecing together mementos, stories from his dad’s old friends, and hard conversations with his mother, Pudi starts on a mission to solve the puzzle of his father and finds himself instead on a complex, funny, and vulnerable journey of self-discovery and acceptance.

A unique cinematic adventure that blends theatricality and documentary filmmaking and unites theatre artists and filmmakers, RUNNING will offer an emotionally intimate and visually explosive experience to audiences around the world.  Don’t miss the exclusive showing of RUNNING, this January 22 – February 26, 2022, through Stellar, a virtual streaming platform, and live screenings in NYC, SF, and LA.
