Molli and Max in the Future, SXSW Studio


Section: Visions

Director-Screenwriter: Michael Lukk Litwak

Logline: Sci-fi romantic comedy about a man and woman whose orbits repeatedly collide over the course of 12 years, four planets, three dimensions and one space-cult.

Panelists: Michael Lukk Litwak, Aristotle Athari, Paloma Garcia-Lee

Premiered: March 11, 2023

Key Quote: Litwak: “I started rewatching a lot of my favorites, and eventually came upon When Harry Met Sally, and that movie is a masterpiece and I love it, but I watched it and it felt kind of out of date… I wanted to find a way to bring that to our modern times. When Harry Met Sally… doesn’t talk about kind of how your career factors into your identity and how fascism is rising outside, and there are all these different things that make up who we are and how we define ourselves and what we look for in a partner.”

The Deadline Studio at SXSW runs March 10-13, where the cast and creatives behind the best and buzziest titles in this year’s lineup sit down with Deadline’s festival team to discuss their movies and the paths they took to get to Austin, Texas.
