Mabel’s Dreams

A comic portrait of Mabel McClafferty, a brash middle-aged woman forced by gentrification to vacate her apartment. As she sorts the accumulation of a lifetime, she nods off to sleep in a series of farcical dreams: cashing in green stamps, she’s led down a dark hallway of financial nightmares; she goes back to grade school, through the channels of her TV, into a detective mystery, and to outer space.

Written by Conrad Bishop & Elizabeth Fuller, in collaboration with Camilla Schade.
Directed by Conrad Bishop, music by Ross Care
