Join us for a free screening of the first two episodes of this Sundance Channel hit followed by a Q&A with the show’s producers! The Returned is inspired by the 2004 film They Came Back, which had its U.S. Premiere in New Directors/New Films. As an added bonus, attendees will have the chance to win a one-year Film Society membership and a copy of the show’s gorgeous soundtrack by Scottish post-rock band Mogwai!
In an idyllic French mountain town, a seemingly random collection of people find themselves in a state of confusion as they attempt to return to their homes. What they do not yet know is that they have been dead for several years, and no one is expecting them back. As they struggle to reintegrate with their families and past lovers, buried secrets emerge and new mysteries develop as they grapple with a miraculous and sinister new reality. But it seems they are not the only ones to have returned from the dead. Their arrival coincides with a series of gruesome murders which bear a chilling resemblance to the work of a serial killer from the past.
