Shelf Life is dark comedy based upon a theatrical production of the same name that was conceived and written by O-Lan Jones, Andrea Stein and Jim Turner as a result of their rumination on what must become of people boxed in tiny spaces for extended periods of time. Director Paul Bartel saw the closing night performance of the play in 1992 and within six weeks begun shooting the film. After decades underground, the last remaining 35mm print was uncovered at the film archive of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and digital restored in time for its 25th Anniversary. In Shelf Life Tina, Pam, and Scotty are taken down into their parents bomb shelter after the Kennedy assassination in 1963. Thirty years later, after their parenets have died the now-grown kids have created a life for themselves based on remnants from the 60's, intermittent output from the TV and their wild imaginations.
