Four Eyed Monsters screens at Carbon Arc this week

See Susan Buice and Arin Crumley's odd romance on Thursday night

Something for lovers of adorably nerdy love stories and online romance, Carbon Arc is showing Four Eyed Monsters (2005), and describes it thusly:

"Arin and Susan met online and fell in love through emails, notes, videos, and pictures. As their intimacy grew, so did their fears. Neglect, cheating and jealousy force the couple to question if they were ever actually in love or just engaged by their artistic collaboration together. As they try to escape the reality they've created together, they are forced to finally address the question that kept them committed for so long in their romance and in their collaboration: What is love?"

Here's the trailer. It's so adorable it makes my teeth ache. But that's probably because indie urban hipster culture has taken over the world since 2005. This may have been its beginning.

Carbon Arc is the next best thing to a rep cinema in Halifax, with screenings most Thursdays and some Fridays at The Khyber, 1588 Barrington Street, third floor. It starts at 8PM, $6.
