The Seattle summer sensation helps us close out the season!

Fantasy A, real-life autistic Seattle rapper, suffers trials and tribulations from total creeps as he attempts to become a superstar. After being kicked out of his group home onto the grim summer streets, Fantasy A sets off on an odyssey to achieve fame and find a good mattress to sleep on in this ensemble comedy filmed entirely on location in Seattle.

The legend himself, Fantasy A, will be present to introduce each screening, and he and the filmmakers will also take part in a post-show Q&A following the Saturday showing!

One of the final entries in our Summer in the City film series, FANTASY A GETS A MATTRESS captures Seattle like no other movie before it. With its bright, vivid colors and glorious cinematography, you can practically feel the city’s summer sun simmering from the screen.

Opening night feature of the 2023 Local Sightings Film Festival.

Winner of the Best Narrative Feature award at this year’s Seattle Black Film Festival!

“…a truly original Seattle story overflowing with homegrown creativity and humor… the history of Seattle film has a new chapter that, while still being written, begins and ends with Fantasy A.” Chase Hutchinson, The Seattle Times
