BEFORE I DISAPPEAR is a feature length adaptation of director/star Shawn Christensen’s own 2013 Academy Award-winning short, Curfew. The film had its world premiere at 2014 South by Southwest (SXSW) Film Festival where it won the Audience Award, and was in competition at the 71st Venice International Film Festival.
As his life hits rock bottom, 20-something Richie (Christensen) decides to end it all—only to have his half-hearted suicide attempt interrupted by an urgent request from his sister (Emmy Rossum) to babysit her precocious daughter (Fatima Ptacek). So begins a madcap tour of Manhattan after dark, as uncle and niece find unexpected bonds in the unlikeliest of places. Paul Wesley, Richard Schiff and Ron Perlman also star in the film.
