ASSHOLES will be released in New York City on October 6th and in Los Angeles on October 13th .
Assholes world premiered at SXSW where the film won the first ever Adam Yauch Award, an award given in honor of a filmmaker whose work strives to be wholly its own, without regard for norms or desire to conform. The film went on to play Calgary Underground Film Festival, Florida Film Festival, Oak Cliff Film Festival, Bucheon International Fantastic Film Festival, Perth Revelation Film Festival, and the Fantasia Festival.

Assholes follows recovering addicts Adah and Aaron who are struggling to stay sober. After meeting in their psychoanalyst’s waiting room, they fall in love, relapse on poppers, and become the biggest assholes in New York City.
