About

Adapted from Chris Kraus’s 1997 cult classic, combining feminist art criticism, memoir, and epistolary novel, I Love Dick is a bold new series from the team that brought you Transparent. Chris is a frustrated New York filmmaker who finds herself marooned in Marfa, Texas, where her erudite husband has a writing residency. Amid the dusty silence, art snobs, and tumbleweeds, she meets renowned scholar Dick. An infuriating and beguiling exchange with this enigmatic, macho character unleashes a dramatic awakening in her.

But this is not a story about Chris winning Dick’s love or approval, or revitalizing her stale marriage. Rather, Dick is a cipher for Chris’s creativity and intellect. Her infatuation fuels an erotic electricity that is her own, leading her to new thresholds as an artist. Exploring and innovating around female desire and subjectivity, the series liberates itself from television convention—playfully mining Kathryn Hahn’s multi-dimensional comedic range, the stark west Texas landscape, and a magic bag of riveting visual, textual, and narrative experiments.

The Festival presents the first three episodes of the series, followed by a Q&A with its creators.
