2015 USA Film Festival: End of Days at Godfrey Global Inventory
It’s the last day of business before Godfrey Global Inventory shuts down for good, and the enigmatic Mr. Godfrey and his officious elderly sister Esther invite the company’s downtrodden staff to a farewell party where they are to receive their final paychecks. Instead, the about-to-be-laid-off-staff are bribed into working one last night - with a promised one million dollar bonus for each of them when the job is done.
Suspicious of the management’s unprecedented largess, but anxious to claim the life-changing bonus money, the four employees agree to the task (along with a hastily-recruited cleaning lady), only to learn that processing the last of the mysterious company’s "inventory" may lead to cataclysmic consequences. Director Jennifer Liao’s darkly comic debut feature film (from Christina Ray’s original script) weaves a wickedly funny, surreal world that provokes questions about an impassive modern society and our place in it.
Filmmakers will be in attendance.
