New York-based Chilean filmmaker Sebastián Silva took his cast and crew on a fun ride when making Crystal Fairy, one of two feature films he had at this year's Sundance Film Festival. Produced by Pablo Larraín, director of last year’sNo (NYFF50), Crystal Fairy is based on a real road trip from Silva's youth.

Michael Cera stars as an American tourist who encounters a wanderer (played by Gaby Hoffman) during a Chilean vacation. The two of them, along with a group of locals (played by Silva's real-life brothers) embark on a journey in search of an elusive hallucinogenic cactus that leads them to unexpected places.

Director Sebastián Silva will be on hand to discuss the journey, on screen and off, of his road trip comedy Crystal Fairy in this very special Summer Talk.

This Summer Talk is free and open to the public. Tickets will be available to the general public at the Elinor Bunin Munroe Film Center box office beginning one hour before the start of the event, on a space available basis.
