A new roommate moves into Xena's apartment, changing the dynamic with their current partner. Arielle Bordow directs and co-stars in “Craigslist Roommate,” a free-spirited 16mm snapshot of fluid relationships and shared living. When the wandering Addie moves to Madison, Wisconsin, she responds to a Craigslist ad to share a house with a couple, Xena and Lake. The open-minded trio begin to share moments of intimacy and connection — Addie and Xena in particular hit it off — but soon are beset with boundary issues, insecurities and resentments. (Also, Lake is allergic to Addie’s cat). The film perfectly captures early 20’s life of a certain alt subculture — it’s teeming with authenticity, dryly funny, and refreshingly candid in its sexual explorations. -KA.

Sound Mixer: Patrick Bonazza. Boom: Cooper Olsen. Original Score: Logan Severson & Isaac de Broux-Sloan.
