"Tukel just might be his generation's Woody Allen."
-Michael Dunaway, Paste Magazine

"Relentlessly Hilarious"
- Michael Tully, Hammer to Nail

It has a neo-Seinfeld vibe.
- Jordon Hoffman,

Hilarious and irreverent. 
- Kentucker Audley, No-Budge

Writer, director and star Onur Tukel takes one of film’s most popular genres, the wedding movie, and gives it a much-needed overhaul. Tuna (Tukel) and his best friend Alex (Jennifer Prediger) meet up to attend the wedding of their friend Richard (Lawrence Michael Levine). They pick up their motley band of friends and head to Central Park for the ceremony. But with storm clouds (both literal and figurative) forming, the entire affair runs the risk of going off the rails. RICHARD’S WEDDING is a wonderfully shaggy, hilarious comedy that calls to mind the ensemble films of the 1970’s, but with a fresh, confident cast that includes some of contemporary American independent film’s wittiest performers.

Refocus regulars can expect lots of familiar faces, including Lawrence Michael Levine (GABI ON THE ROOF IN JULY), Dustin Guy Defa (the director of BAD FEVER), and of course, Onur Tukel (SEPTIEN).

As always, Refocus screenings are free in exchange for your promise to tell people about the films via social media, variations of mouth to ear, blogs, cave paintings, or any other form you're well versed in.
