Tiny Furniture premieres at SXSW

by Sophie Turcotte

Lena Dunham’s second feature length film premieres today at SXSW and BUST highly recommends you go see it! 

About Tiny Furniture:

22-year-old Aura returns home to her artist mother’s TriBeCa loft with the following: a useless film theory degree, 357 hits on her Youtube page, a boyfriend who’s left her to find himself at Burning Man, a dying hamster, and her tail between her legs. Luckily, her trainwreck childhood best friend never left home, and ill-advised romantic possibilities lurk around every corner. Aura quickly throws away her liberal-arts clogs and careens into her old/new life: a dead-end hostess job, pathetic Brooklyn “art shows,” drinking all the wine in her mother’s neatly organized cabinets, competing with her prodigious teenage sister, and desperate sex in a giant metal pipe. Surrounded on all sides by what she could become, Aura just wants someone to tell her who she is.

About Lena:

Dunham’s first feature, Creative Nonfiction, premiered at SXSW 2009. She has made two webseries, Tight Shots for Nerve.com and Delusional Downtown Divas for Index Magazine. She is one of Filmmaker Magazine’s 25 New Faces of Independent Film (2009). She has written for publications including Interview Magazine, The Onion A/V Club and HammertoNail.com.
