18 1/2

This is a special “Meet the Filmmaker” event that will include a post-film Zoom Q&A with Director/Writer Dan Mirvish and Writer/Producer Daniel Moya.

In 1974, a White House transcriber finds the only copy of the infamous 18½-minute gap in Nixon’s Watergate tapes but her attempts to leak it to the press run afoul of hippies, swingers and nefarious forces. 18½ is an award-winning thriller/comedy by director Dan Mirvish (Between Us, Bernard and Huey, Slamdance Film Festival Co-founder), is 100% on Rotten Tomatoes, and has played in over 20 festivals around the world.

  • “I liked this! It is weird, small, and unexpected.”

    – Christy Lemire, FILM WEEK (KPCC – NPR LOS ANGELES)
  • “Yes, another Watergate movie, but this one's fun and totally fictional.”

    – Ricard Roeper, CHICAGO SUN-TIMES
  • “This feature is [Dan Mirvish's] best-directed work and also his most Altman-like.”

    – Matt Zoller Seitz, ROGEREBERT.COM
  • “’18½’ is a unique version of a political thriller, exploring characters through zany moments of comedy and tense moments of paranoia.”

    – Amanda Mazzillo, FILM INQUIRY
  • “Mixing dark comedy and mild suspense, Dan Mirvish's’18 ½’ is not the movie many would expect it to be. But the unpredictability of it all makes this madcap political fiction thoroughly diverting.”

    – Andrew Stover, FILM THREAT
  • “’18½’ is a very funny piece of “What if?” storytelling.”

    – Mike McGranaghan, AISLE SEAT
