This event includes a 30-minute post-screening Q&A. As a courtesy to Mr. Payne, Mr. Taylor, Mr. Johnson, and Ms. Chau, attendees are expected to stay to the end of the event.

DOWNSIZING imagines what might happen if, as a solution to over-population, Norwegian scientists discover how to shrink humans to five inches tall and propose a 200-year global transition from big to small. People soon realize how much further money goes in a miniaturized world, and with the promise of a better life, everyman Paul Safranek (Matt Damon) and wife Audrey (Kristen Wiig) decide to abandon their stressed lives in Omaha in order to get small and move to a new downsized community – a choice that triggers life-changing adventures.
