TORREY PINES Film Screening



$10 Backstage / Doors at 7:30


Torrey Pines is a stop-motion animated feature film by director Clyde Petersen. Based on a true story, the film is a queer punk coming-of-age tale, taking place in Southern California in the early 1990's.

Raised by a schizophrenic single mother, Petersen's life story unfolds in a series of baffling and hallucinated events. With a mother fueled by hallucinations of political conspiracy and family dysfunction, Petersen is kidnapped at the age of 12 and taken on a cross-country adventure that will forever alter the family as they know it. Soundtracked by music from Kimya Dawson, Earth, Chris Walla and more, join Petersen as he takes you back to a time when MTV shaped teenage minds and a generation of nerds strengthened their thumbs on a Nintendo controller.
