Acclaimed comedy drama "Problemista" follows an aspiring toy designer from El Salvador who starts working for an erratic art-world outcast in New York City, hoping to stay in the country and realize his dream before his work visa expires. The Atlantic calls it "A marvelous mixture of surrealism and social satire that depicts the American dream as a nightmare of bureaucracy and phone calls to customer service," while Slate magazine calls it "An imaginative, impressive, not to mention hilarious debut." Admission is $3 for the public, $2 for ISU staff/faculty and free for ISU students.
