Requiem for a Dungeon Master

Not so long ago and very close by, monsters, wizards, dreams and dragons were packaged into a thousand cardboard boxes. A small group of friends in Lake Geneva dared to loose upon the world the “most dangerous” game 1974 had to offer.  Role playing games channeled the creative energy of millions, even if they’re afraid to admit it.

Robert and Jane, a socially awkward couple, meet on an internet dating site but when they decide to get together IRL can’t speak to one another.

Civil

civil

Civil, written and directed by Rob Matsushita, is set in an unspecified future, where trials are held in a virtual environment, and can only be 40 minutes long. Five actors will play multiple roles, and the audience will vote on the outcomes of both trials…but the choice between one side or another is not always easy, and a last-minute plot twist will change the game entirely.
