Kate Can’t Swim, winner of the Jury’s Honorable Mention award at 2017 Slamdance Film Festival, and the Audience Award at the 2017 Sunscreen Film Festival will make its East Coast Premiere at the Brooklyn Film Festival.
Kate Can’t Swim starring Celeste Arias, Grayson DeJesus, Jennifer Allcott, and Josh Helman; is directed by Josh Helman, and written by Jennifer Allcott and Josh Helman.
The film features four compelling young actors as a group of friends struggling to come to terms with themselves as they move into their thirties.
KATE (Celeste Arias) is almost thirty, almost engaged, almost settled in her career as a writer—but is deeply dissatisfied. When Kate’s best friend EM (Jennifer Allcott) returns from Paris with a surprising new lover in tow (Josh Helman), Kate and her boyfriend PETE (Grayson DeJesus) spend a weekend in upstate New York with the new couple. As Kate struggles with her suspicions about Em’s new lover, dormant feelings about her own life arise, forcing her to decide whether to stay on her current life path or to burn it down and forge a new one.
