Immigrant Songs via Sundance

29 Jul 2008

down by the river...

This week Sony premieres the Sundance 2008 Grand Jury winner Frozen River. Our friend Kevin Pazmino was the 1st AD (as he was on PK’s Predator), so we’re gonna go see it. Give a shout if you wanna come with, we’re buying popcorn.

Also earlier this year IFC released Sangre de mi Sangre, the 2007 Grand Jury winner, produced by our friend Per Melita.

Both films tell a story of ‘illegal’ immigration and were made on shoestring budgets. And so we raise a glass to our friends and their fine fine work in the trenches of NYC indie filmmaking.
