Guests

Screenings followed by a Q&A with Cowlick filmmaker Lindsey Sitz.

Lindsey Sitz is a scriptwriter based out of Washington, DC.  She works for a number of production companies in the area, with a current focus on narrative animation, interactive video, and commercial spots.  She has always been an anxious person. When she was 10-years-old, she spent what felt like hours re-reading the same page of “Shiloh” over and over and OVER again because she believed that if she just read it one more time, her family would always be safe. In the last decade and a half, she has painfully realized that the universe CANNOT AND WILL NOT be controlled. It is a beautiful, unpredictable, wild mess. Sometimes all we can do is sit back and laugh. Cowlick was inspired by this idea.
