Mass Romantic







2008 . 112 Minutes . mudgeonsoul productions
Trailer

A group of 20-somethings stumble in love & art in this indie dramedy.
Jamie and Erin's activist theater company sets out to create a play based on PJ's book of political short stories. PJ hasn't written much in a while... or socialized much either, except for hanging out at Olson's vegan cafe. Erin's girlfriend Bel, having just moved from NYC, prepares for a conference and searches for an apartment, as well as community in Chicago. Meanwhile, Billy is void of direction even with the self-fulfillment classes, but his partner Sally hopes his new job at Olson's cafe will help. Olson's partner Annette is working on a new quantum physics book and feeling uninspired... as are her students.
Where do you turn when your passion wanes? Your work? Your partner? How do you fall in love with life again?

Mass Romantic, a new independent feature by Richard Paro, follows activists and academics struggling with love while creating political art. The film focuses on relationships, while the characters tackle controversial topics in their work. "Mass Romantic" celebrates the everyday lives of activists, queer people, and acknowledges the importance of allies in building meaningful, enriching communities. The theme of coalition-building present in "Mass Romantic" is reflected by the diverse group of individuals involved in the making of the film, many of whom are underrepresented in American cinema. "Mass Romantic" features independent artists of numerous disciplines, including musicians Heidi Spencer, Coyote Grace, Martha Berner, Renee-Louise Carafice, Actor Slash Model and exclusive live performances by Carrie Lydon, Kate Brown, ROFO and Head of Femur. "Mass Romantic" was produced with a DIY sensibility after years of extensive story development and workshopping, utilizing the creative input and improvisational skills of the cast and crew.
