Mina and Rudy are that couple: adorable, but not obnoxious. Intellectual, but not condescending. Busy, but still have time to poston Instagram. Yet sometimes, like so many other technology-obsessed couples, this duo can’t take their eyes off their screens.
3rd Street Blackout is a dark comedy – literally – that follows Mina and Rudy in the days after Hurricane Sandy left large parts of New York City without power. In this analogue world, their flaws are exposed, their commitment challenged and their mettle tested.
