Q&A with Vincent Grashaw
Director: Vincent Grashaw
Producers: Rebecca Green and Laura D. Smith
Sponsored by: Drs. Owen Scott, III & Mary Lou Kelley

Immediacy and naturalism are the hallmarks of Vince Grashaw’s extraordinary second feature, a film that digs deeply and with empathy into the tortured psyches of two adolescent boys. In the cruel world of junior high, Edwin suffers in a state of anxiety and alienation alongside his only friend, Flake. Misunderstood by their families and demoralized at school daily, their fury simmers quietly until an idea for vengeance offers them a terrifying release. Based on the acclaimed novel “Project X” by Jim Shepard, this unflinching look at adolescence explores how the powerful bonds of childhood friendship and search for belonging can become a matter of life or death.

Language: English

“A coming-of-age drama about kids who may never actually come of age, And Then I Go isn’t about red flags and warning signs. It’s about the toxic combination of angst, detachment and alienation that makes terrible decisions seem like the only recourse to kids who don’t know — or don’t believe — that the problems they’re facing will one day seem insignificant.” IndieWire

“The psychological and emotional hurdles facing teenage boys that are sometimes given only passing notice by parents and teachers form the centerpiece of And Then I Go, a disturbing drama that will resonate with audiences attuned to the challenges of adolescence.”  The Hollywood Reporter
