Film screening: Yes, Your Tide is Cold and Dark, Sir


In September 2009, 63-year-old Rudy "Clay" Claitonowsky, a rogue guitar instructor, and three of his teenaged pupils disappeared without a trace into the sand dunes of Cape Henlopen, Delaware. Ten months later, Claitonowsky's estranged, stock broker son Cliff made an emotional pilgrimage to the coastal town, which he abandoned 12 years prior following the death of his mother. Amending his past and that of his father, Cliff begrudgingly forges relationships with mirthful barfly Jack, his father's closest friend, the elderly Merrill, his mother's one-time hospice nurse, and restaurant owner Jacey, Cliff's former mistress and mother of Carl Tullivan, one of the missing teenagers.

As Cliff becomes mired in the unrequited love of his father, the missing teenagers reappear, one by one, with a single phrase on their listless lips: "Yes, your tide is cold and dark, Sir."

A talk-balk with writer/director/actor Chris Malinowski follows the screening. Guests will enjoy complimentary finger foods on the patio.
