MY LOVE AFFAIR WITH MARRIAGE, An 8 Above Release

We are really excited to be releasing the new feminist animated feature by Signe Baumane (of ROCKS IN MY POCKETS fame),  MY LOVE AFFAIR WITH MARRIAGE. It opened Friday October 6th in NYC at the Quad Theater before proceeding to 30 more cities throughout the US with multiple sold out screenings.

‘My Love Affair With Marriage’  has received the NYT Critic’s Pick! Natalia Winkelman of  The New York Times called the film "remarkably beautiful", read the rest of the review here: https://www.nytimes.com/2023/10/05/movies/my-love-affair-with-marriage-review.html

“Funny, moving, and visually stunning throughout, it's easily one of the most distinct animated films I've seen in quite a while and it serves as a needed reminder that animation is an art form that can be used for more than family-oriented narratives."
- Peter Sobczynski, RogerEbert.com

My Love Affair with Marriage is an animated feature film following a young-woman's 23-year quest for perfect love and lasting marriage set against a backdrop of historic events in Eastern Europe. Voiced critically-acclaimed actors Dagmara Dominczyk, Michele Pawk, Cameron Monaghan, Stephen Lang, and Matthew Modine.

The film had its World Premiere at Tribeca and went on to play at 60 other festivals, winning 13 awards, followed by a 3-month theatrical run in Latvia and a theatrical run in France.  

After NYC will have screened in over 25 cities across the US, in what the filmmakers are calling their Animation Rock Tour (they will be doing Q&As in nearly every city).  Shout out to Brian Newman for introducing me to Signe and producer Sturgis Warner - super pro-active filmmakers!
