Sword of Trust: A Screening and Marc Maron & Lynn Shelton in Conversation

Writer-director Lynn Shelton and Marc Maron’s film Sword of Trust (Opening in New York on July 12) is a raucous comedy like none other—about the saga of trying to sell a sword that supposedly proves that the South won the Civil War. How did they pull it off?

Join them for a screening and conversation about the making of the film, the kinetic creative energy produced by ensemble-based improv, why conspiracy theories make great comedy, and how to tell a story about the South in 2019 and much more.
