DESCRIPTION
RANDY magazine is very pleased to present a double-feature event at Participant Inc. Join us for this otherworldly pairing of the cosmic films No Gravity and Codependent Lesbian Space Alien Seeks Same.

No Gravity (2010, dir. by Silvia Casalino, 60 min.)
Silvia Casalino is an Astronaut working for the French Space Agency, CNES who dreams of going to space. Confronted with social stereotypes, Silvia finds her intellectual mentor in the feminist theorist Donna Haraway, who introduces her to cyborg culture. Her dreams become reality as she embarks on an unusual and bizarre journey, which leads her to the icons of female space travel. An essayist documentary, No Gravity is a personal story and a take on the history of women in space and the relationship between gender and technology. 

Codependent Lesbian Space Alien Seeks Same (2011, dir. Madeleine Olnek, 75 min.)
In this mash-up of lo-fi New York City romantic comedy and a sci-fi B-movie, space aliens are sent to Earth on a mission to save their planet by infiltrating New York City's lesbian dating scene. Two of the aliens, fall into an unfortunate romance with each other, but the third, meets Jane (Lisa Haas), an Earthling of mild manners who lives an uneventful life and works in a stationery store. Unaware that the sudden object of her affection is an alien (despite her bald head and monotone speech), Jane falls hard. Meanwhile, two undercover government agents are following Jane in order to find the spaceship and cover up the existence of the aliens. 
*Official selection of 2010 Sundance Film Festival*
