Absurd, entertaining, and wholly incredible, American Animals is an engaging story of a heist told from very unreliable perspectives.

Four painfully average university students decide to turn to a life a crime to become more interesting people. They plan a heist to steal books worth up to $12 million from the library, what follows is a ludicrous crime thriller based on the unbelievably true events of the 2004 Transy Book Heist.

Starring Evan Peters (X-Men, American Horror Story) and Barry Keogh (Dunkirk, The Killing of a Sacred Deer), this crime drama cleverly interweaves tales and reality into a story you’ll be glad you didn’t miss.

We will also be screening short film The Integration Game by Naomi Soneye-Thomas and Min Dedede before the main feature.
