What is life without pain? That is the central question of the new feature film Zenith, written and directed by Vladan Nikolic, associate professor of media studies at The New School. The film, set in a postindustrial dystopian society of the future in which unhappiness has supposedly been eliminated, is being screened at the IFC Center in New York through October 9. The film will appear in selected theaters nationwide throughout the fall and winter. For more information, go to zeniththefilm.com.
