4:44 Last Day on Earth with Abel Ferrara and Shanyn Leigh in person


Dir. Abel Ferrara. 2011, 85 mins. With Willem Dafoe, Shanyn Leigh. After over a decade away from filming in his beloved New York City, Abel Ferrara returns with an apocalyptic love letter to the Lower East Side. With the planet on the verge of extinction, a New York couple cycle through moments of anxiety, ecstasy, and torpor. As they sink into the havens of sex and art, and Skype final goodbyes from their loft apartment, the film becomes one of Ferrara’s most potent and intimate expressions of spiritual crisis.
