PSU Alum Gets Some Strange Love at Sundance

The world-famous Sundance Film Festival began this week in Park City, Utah. One of the 117 films being shown is Penn State alumnus Chris Radcliff’s The Strange Ones. The film is 15 minutes long and will be screened several times throughout the festival, premiering on the first day.

Radcliff graduated from PSU in 2004 with a degree in film-video. He created The Strange Ones with Lauren Wolkstein, who went to graduate school with Radcliff at Columbia University. The film is about a man and boy who take shelter in a motel swimming pool during a journey to parts unknown. Things quickly get odd and confusing. In fact, t’s remarkably similar to my last summer vacation, just replace “motel swimming pool” with “Honda Civic” and “parts unknown” with “Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania.”
