Showrunners Brit Marling and Zal Batmanglij will Participate in an Onstage Conversation Following this Early Look Prior to the Series’ Highly Anticipated Return
San Francisco, CA – SFFILM will present a special preview of the second season of Netflix’s much-talked-about original series The OA, Wednesday, March 20, 9:00 pm at the Castro Theatre (429 Castro Street). This early look at the highly anticipated second season’s first episode “Angel of Death” will be followed by a Q&A with the series’ creators Zal Batmanglij (who also directs and produces) and Brit Marling (who also stars and produces).
“This is going to be quite a night,” said SFFILM Executive Director Noah Cowan. “We’re beyond excited to be welcoming these talented storytellers to the Castro to blow our minds with the next chapter of their unconventional, uncompromising vision. I for one can’t wait to see what will follow that unbelievable first season, and this will be the perfect taste ahead of the public release.”
Netflix’s “mind-bending” original series returns with The OA Part II, which follows OA as she navigates a new dimension, one in which she had a completely different life as a Russian heiress, and one in which she once again finds herself as Hap’s captive. Part II introduces Karim Washington, a private detective tasked with finding a missing teen, Michelle Vu. His path crosses with OA, as they try to solve the mystery of Michelle’s whereabouts and a house on Nob Hill connected to the disappearance of several teenagers. Meanwhile, back in the first dimension, BBA, Angie and the boys find themselves on a journey to understand the truth behind OA’s story and the incredible realities she described.
Tickets to this screening of The OA Part II are free for SFFILM members, $16 for the general public. The box office is open to SFFILM members now online at sffilm.org and opens for the general public 10:00 am Thursday, February 28.
