Post-film Q&A with Booger director Jonah Barrett, Absent director Isabella Cuevas Pierson, and filmmaker/moderator Rachel Millena Saul
8:30pm doors / 9:00pm film
Child of the Boogeyman, Mehitable Pachad (Meh for short) is a 109 year-old demon who is tired of living a life of seclusion with their sister, Jerusha. With the disappearance of their estranged brother, Mehitable and Jerusha are the only demons left to look after the “family business” of terrorizing humans in their dreams. The otherworldly veil lifts one day as Mehitable flees home and attempts to create a new life alongside humanity. Booger serves as a queer supernatural coming-of-age story, for anyone who has felt like an Other, an outcast, or uncomfortable in their own skin.
