“Like a Pollock painting made of blood, sweat and tears“

It’s not a film festival unless there is a light hearted dark punk comedy in the program! “Dinner in America” has received glorious reviews and some people have compared it’s humour to the cult classic “Napoleon Dynamite.” An on-the-lam punk rocker and a young woman obsessed with his band unexpectedly fall in love and go on an epic journey together through America’s decaying Midwestern suburbs.

The film is written and directed by Adam Rehmeier who grew up in midwestern America and brings many aspects from his childhood to the film. The film was an instant hit when it premiered at Sundance in January 2020 and praised by both audience and critics. The film has also been screened at film festivals all over the world, in countries like Ukraine, Sweden, Canada, Estonia and Poland.

“Seeing the reactions from so many people over the course of [the festival] was pretty profound for me, I was surprised at how universal it was—I thought originally that it would resonate more with 18-30 year olds, but it seemed to resonate with older people, and of all walks of life.” – Adam Rehemeier in an interview with cinetopiafestival.org
