Red Flag Alex Karpovsky 2013

If you’re in New York, you won’t want to miss a double feature of Alex Karpovsky films, “Red Flag,” and “Rubberneck.” One is funny; the other is not funny and a lot scary. The double feature will take place at the Film Society of Lincoln Center’s Elinor Bunin Monroe Film Center starting February 22nd, complete with opening weekend Q & As with Mr. Karpovsky.

Mumblecore fans know and love Alex Karpovsky for a long list of films. His fan base continues to grow as part of the hit HBO series, “Girls.” He also just completed a role in the upcoming film by the Coen Brothers, “Inside Llewyn Davis.”

And, of course, “Red Flag” and “Rubberneck” will also be available on VOD starting February 19.
