The bizarre story of a year-long sentence under the eye of an intrusive landlady

Life in New York City is full of frustrations, but for Brian and Tom, there’s no greater headache than the endless onslaught of calls from their landlady, who is quick to criticise the couple for leaving their cat home alone, but slow to fix leaks and plumbing problems. Told through a series of voicemails whose content and tone build to an incredulity-inducing crescendo, Brian Bolster’s droll film is an entertaining (or disturbing) experience for anyone who’s ever dealt with a ceaselessly meddlesome landlord. One Year Lease won Best Short Documentary at the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival.

Director: Brian Bolster

Producer: Tom Harrington
