Q&A with director Jane Schoenbrun following the screening.

For outsiders Owen and Maddy, TV feels more real than real life. The two students form a bond over a love of “The Pink Opaque,” a Buffy the Vampire Slayer-style 90s TV show, but when Maddy mysteriously disappears, Owen’s suburban reality begins to crack. A vibrant visual and sonic journey from director Jane Schoenbrun, I SAW THE TV GLOW marks the dawn of a new queer horror cinema, mixing powerful emotions with imaginative worlds to create a cautionary tale of the perils of not being true to yourself.
