Strange things are afoot in Hastings, Nebraska, as we witness Marjorie’s 93rd birthday and descend into an intergalactic psychedelic nightmare. Dan Schneidkraut’s THE TRUTH ABOUT HASTINGS is, in his own words, a “meditation on the mutual irrational distrust between rural and city-dwelling Americans [...] using allusions to popular conspiracy theories (shape shifters, lizard people, flat earth, etc) that are perpetuated by the technology that isolates and dehumanizes us.” – Celia Pouzet
