About the Film

Monster Calls (2016)
Written by Patrick Ness and directed by  J.A. Bayona
98 minutes

A young boy lives with his terminally ill mother. Experiencing bullying at school and lacking friends he becomes disruptive. The only way out is to confront the reality of death. Sometimes when you hold something dear it is too close to you to see the damage that it is doing.

Doors open at 5:30PM and the film begins at 6:00PM. To make the festival as inclusive and accessible as possible, admission is free to all films. No RSVP required!
If you would like more information on accessibility accommodations at MOPA, please contact Kevin Linde at linde@mopa.org.
