'Incredibly Small' explores the relationship between Anne (Susan Burke) and Amir (Stephen Gurewitz).

Early adulthood is often an opportunity to really stretch out and find one's place. But it can be hard to dodge reality and the constraints of life: employment – or a lack thereof, the cost of living, relationships. The tension between freedom and responsibility is at the core of Incredibly Small, the feature-length film debut from Dean Peterson. The movie premieres Friday, July 22 in Chicago at the Gene Siskel Film Center. But first, Dean Peterson spoke with Eight Forty-Eight.
