Join us on November 24th at 2:00 p.m. for the screening of "Syrup" at the New Central Library.

About the film: Max Berry’s rollicking cult novel is turned into a seductively hip satire of celebrity and pop culture machinery. The film exposes the treacherous world of advertising through the eyes of a young prodigy chasing fame, fortune and the woman of his dreams.

Shiloh Fernandez is an ambitious grad student who believes his innovative soft-drink idea will be a top seller. His pitch to cola glory is blocked by a cut-throat exec (Amber Heard) and a marketing hot shot.

Location: Central Public Library, 330 Park Blvd. San Diego CA 92101 Google Maps
