The show’s promotional materials will include an app developed by Kelley that will allow smartphone users to scan “Little Village” logos placed on downtown locations like the Emporium and Tom’s Market and watch scenes from the show.

  • Brothers to present film — Political satire propels ‘Oath’

    In Ike Barinholtz’s “The Oath,” a politically divided family gathers for Thanksgiving dinner the day before all Americans have been asked — under some duress — to sign the titular oath of loyalty to the United States. As tensions rise around the holiday table, the family is threatened when two federal agents drop by to question Chris (Ike Barinholtz), who is a vocal opponent of The Oath. Clearly enjoying their Thanksgiving meal around the table are, from left: Abbie (Meredith Hagner), Pat (Jon Barinholtz), Alice (Carrie Brownstein), Chris, Kai (Tiffany Haddish), Eleanor (Nora Dunn) and Hank (Chris Ellis).

    On the day after Thanksgiving — Black Friday — all Americans have been asked to sign a pledge of loyalty to the United States. This is the central conceit of “The Oath,” a dark comedy/horror/political satire film starring Ike and Jon Barinholtz, and written and directed by Ike.
