As a teenager growing up in Memorial in the ’70s, Mark Stolaroff could often be found carrying around his dad’s Super 8 camera, rallying friends and neighbors to play a role in one of his self-made films. Now, the Memorial High School graduate lives in LA, where he produces micro-budget, independent, feature films, including his latest, DriverX. Mark recently traveled to his hometown to screen DriverX at AMC Houston 8 downtown. The screening turned into an unofficial 35th high school reunion. DriverX tells the story of Leonard, a middle-aged stay-at-home dad in LA who, struggling to make ends meet, signs up to drive for a rideshare company called DriverX. Through his late-night driving trips, Leonard must learn to navigate a tech-infused economy and deal with millennial riders. All the while, Leonard’s marriage is fraying. Pictured at the recent screening are (from left) Kim House, Garret House, Mark Stolaroff and Shanoah Sherfenberg. For more, read “DriverX” by Pooja Salhotra.
