2 ﬁlms by Aaron Katz
In Quiet City, Katz’s deceptively simple drama that has been called “a Terrence Malick
ﬁlm for the new lost generation” (The Austin Chronicle), we meet twentysomething Jamie
(Erin Fisher) as she arrives in New York to visit a friend who never shows. On an empty sub-
way platform, she crosses paths with a kindly stranger named Charlie (Cris Lankenau), and
an unlikely connection is formed over the next 24 hours through city parks, abandoned
apartments, and art galleries in the heart of industrial Brooklyn.
Then in his impressionistic and tenderly heartbreaking debut, Dance Party, USA—
hailed as “one of the best ﬁlms of the year” (The New York Sun)—apathetic teens Jes-
sica (Anna Kavan) and Gus (Cole Pennsinger) share a ﬂeeting moment at a Fourth of July
party in Portland, but their relationship grows closer and more complex after Gus confronts
her with a troubling secret.
