Things Left Behind screening in Seattle

For those of you in the Northwest, come join us at the October 2 screening of Things Left Behind at the Northwest Film Forum's Local Sightings festival in Seattle.

Two other Nathan Williams films (The Dinner Table and C.B.) will also be screening at the festival on other days. Check the link above for details.

A little press

The Ellensburg Daily Record took note of our production. 

As we start to leave summer, a look at last summer’s scouting trips to our TLB location.

The Paleolithic moved even further back:

This is why I don’t include dates in this movie. Whatever we used would surely be revealed to be incorrect in a couple years.

Easier said than done. But Chuck ain’t kidding.

Some excellent films I saw in Vienna

dinnertable:

While showing The Dinner Table to an Austrian (among others) audience was a blast, even more exciting was seeing some great shorts from around the globe.

A few highlights:

IL CAPO by Yuri Ancarani

A mesmerizing, beautifully shot aesthetic/character study of the foreman of a marble quarry in Italy. If you loved to watch big construction equipment moving as a kid (or as an adult) this will be poetry.

ZUCHT UND ORDNUNG (Law and Order) by Jan Soldat

A touching, hilarious look at the romantic and sex life of an elderly, sadomasochistic couple from Berlin. Shot with just the right amount of respectful distance from its subjects. (NB: some explicit imagery in this one)

Film as dream, film as music. No art passes our conscience in the way film does, and goes directly to our feelings, deep down into the dark rooms of our souls.
