    See You Next Tuesday (Dark Comedy-Drama, 2013, 82 min.) –
    Mona, played by Eleanore Pienta (The Unspeakable Act, 7 Chinese Brothers opposite Jason Schwartzman), is a mentally unbalanced and very pregnant young woman in a hideous orange coat. Without any friends to speak of and alienated from her hoochie mama coworkers at a crummy Brooklyn supermarket, Mona maintains a strangely close relationship with her campy, recovering alcoholic mother, May, played by Dana Eskelson (3 Backyards, Deep Powder, The Americans). Mona’s sister, Jordan, played by Molly Plunk (Profane, Schizcago), is an unemployable party girl, estranged from May and making life hell for her increasingly fed up girlfriend, Sylve, played by Keisha Zollar (Orange is the New Black). In the final days of her pregnancy, Mona draws her mother, sister, and anybody who happens to get caught in her wake, into her hectic life as she drifts further from reality.

    Featuring a tapestry of diverse characters with varying levels of sanity and awful taste in wardrobe, See You Next Tuesday is a dark comedy-drama the whole family can enjoy cutting themselves to. Shot in Brooklyn, the film also features appearances by cult legend Beverly Bonner (Basket Case, Brain Damage, Frankenhooker), actor/director Ingrid Jungermann (The Slope, F to 7th), and Karley Scioritino (aka Vice Magazine’s Slutever, who also writes for Vogue and The Huffington Post). Original music for the film was composed by Brian McOmber, formerly of the Dirty Projectors.

    Based in Austin, Texas, Devolver Digital distributes independent video games and guides indie filmmakers through digital distribution and film promotion. Devolver Digital’s outspoken passion for independent games, developers, and fans has earned the company no minor measure of game industry notoriety. With its expansion into film, which was announced at South by Southwest 2013, the company applies that same fiercely creative devotion and digital content expertise to support and celebrate indie filmmakers and projects. Co-Founder and Partner Mike Wilson says his own experience as a filmmaker seeking distribution led him and his partners to expand Devolver Digital into film. That experience has guided the company’s focus on “hand-crafted” strategic partnership and personal attention in distributing the titles on the label to a full range of digital and cable VOD platforms.
