First Tuesday: Chicago premiere of SAME BOAT

Apr. 02, 2019

The Midwest Independent Film Festival is proud to present the Chicago premiere of SAME BOAT, as part of our First Tuesdays screening series, directed by Chris Roberti and written by Chris Roberti and Josh Itzkowitz.

SAME BOAT the story of a time traveling assassin who inadvertently falls in love with the woman he’s been sent to kill... while on a cruise ship. The film was secretly shot aboard an actual cruise. 

The story is about being bored with your job, trying to escape it, destroying your life completely, and finding a way to fix it again. It’s about love, loyalty, integrity, and friendship. And it’s about how kindness is more powerful than destruction.

The evening kicks off at 6 p.m. with a cocktail reception on the top floor of the Landmark space, followed by our signature Producers Panel at 6:30. A Q$A with the filmmakers will follow the screening, followed by an after party.
