An Evening With Demetri Martin
A Conversation With Demetri Martin
Discuss his directorial debut film DEAN. The film won the Tribeca Film Festival’s Founders Award for Best Narrative Feature and tells the heartfelt story of a father and son coming to terms with love, loss, and everything in between. Writer/Director/Comedian Demetri Martin stars alongside Academy Award® winner Kevin Kline in this comedic and heartfelt tale about a father and son coming to terms with love, loss and everything in between. Dean (Martin) is an illustrator whose unwillingness to deal with the recent death of his mother means escaping his hometown of New York for an interview with an ad agency in Los Angeles. His retired engineer dad Robert (Kline) takes a more regimented approach to grief, including putting the family home up for sale. Both father and son set out on their own paths to find a new normal as unexpected circumstances and potential new love interests threaten to thwart all plans
