And now for a film that takes place in Berkeley — at Christmas time! An Astrologer, a closet Satanist, an Inuit opera singer and a webcast diva — a typical Berkeley household (!) — is forced indoors during an unexpected citywide lockdown initiated by the federal government. Ona, who has her own webcast show, thinks the feds are shifting into a full-blown police state. Her roommates think she’s paranoid. Havoc and hilarity unravel as they all race to their own conclusions about what they think is happening during their escalating states of uncertainty. The challenge of perceived and genuine threats posed in this film clearly parallels the logic that led to the Iraqi fiasco (the phony insistence of WMD and Saddam Hussein’s al-Qaeda support). We are also reminded that no one was ever arrested for the anthrax poisoning of the U.S. postal system in 2003.

Wheelchair accessible around the corner at 411 28th Street
