showtimes and tickets

The surreal legal nightmare of internationally acclaimed artist and professor Steve Kurtz began when his wife, Hope, died in her sleep of heart failure. Medics arrived, became suspicious of Kurtz's art, and called the FBI. Within hours the artist was detained as a suspected bioterrorist, as dozens of agents in Hazmat suits sifted through his work and impounded his computers, manuscripts, books, cat, and even his wife's body.

Today Kurtz and his long-time collaborator Dr. Robert Ferrell, former Chair of the Genetics Department at the University of Pittsburgh Graduate School of Public Health, await a trial date.

"Alternately teasing and terrifying, STRANGE CULTURE is a near-perfect alignment of subject and form. In its creative assessment of our current judicial climate, the need for artistic freedom has seldom seemed so urgent."
-Jeanette Catsoulis, NEW YORK TIMES

"Younger filmmakers should be looking to Hershman Leeson for lessons on how to reinvent old forms while at the same
time telling an urgently topical story. The director not only breaks the fourth wall, she reduces it to plaster dust."
--John Anderson, VARIETY
