You Won't Miss Me

Showing at BAMcinemaFest: You Won't Miss Me, directed by Ry Russo-Young

Synopsis from the BAM website:

This absorbing character study features a startlingly raw performance from Stella Schnabel as an aspiring actress who drifts through a series of meaningless sexual encounters, failed auditions, and public breakdowns, repeatedly lashing out at the world she struggles to comprehend. Like an updated version of Cassavetes’ A Woman Under the Influence, You Won’t Miss Me astutely taps into the psychology of a frustrated generation—privileged and talented but, for all its potential, unfulfilled.

Trailer is here, but somehow not on YouTube (correction—the trailer is on YouTube and embedded below), which has, however, an interview with Ry Russo-Young.
