Have a Nice Life Kendra and Beth

A mother and daughter lose their home due to the coronavirus pandemic and live in a tent on the outskirts of Los Angeles. Danny (Kelley Kali) has a plan, though. If she manages to pay the deposit by the end of the day, they'll move into a new apartment. The problem is that she’s short $200, setting off an extraordinary struggle against time. I'm Fine (Thanks For Asking) focuses on the atypical daily life of the excluded who are stuck in a difficult legal situation. The presentation here recalls something of the Dardenne brothers' movies. The filmmakers see the characters with compassion and understanding, and the film was made largely thanks to the coronavirus Stimulus checks disbursed to US residents by the government. It is also a triumph of multi-tasking; Kelley Kali and Angelique Molina are the film's screenwriters, producers and stars, for which they were awarded at SXSW as the so-called multi-hyphenate storytellers.

Audience award nominated film. Please pick up a voting card on entering the screening and tear in a place marking your opinion and throw it into an assigned box after the screening (cards and boxes will be available at the theaters). The filmmakers have a chance of winning $10,000.
