We are extremely excited to be able to present the Tallahassee audience with an Opening Night of films you won’t see anywhere else! These two different (or not so different) films about love, relationships and art will premiere in Tallahassee. It all starts Wednesday, April 15, 2009 at 7pm at FSU’s Student Life Center theater. See you there!
IN A DREAM
Directed by Jeremiah Zagar
Over the past four decades Isaiah Zagar has covered over 50,000 square feet of Philadelphia with stunning mosaic murals. This documentary feature chronicles his work and his tumultuous relationship with his wife Julia. It follows the Zagars as their marriage implodes and a harrowing new chapter in their life unfolds. Winner of multiple film festival awards including the Emerging Visions Audience Award at SxSW. FSU’s Torchlight Program, in association with the Tallahassee Film Festival, is pleased to present this incredible first feature from director (and son of Isaiah), Jeremiah Zagar.
IN A DREAM will premiere Wednesday, April 15, 2009 at 7pm at FSU’s Student Life Center theatre and will be preceded by the award-winning short film NEXT FLOOR!
Directed by Daryl Wein
Seriously though. This raw, romantic docu-comedy/drama follows a young New York couple, who after four years together, have grown stifled. Desperate to escape their ennui, but fearful of life apart, they decide to intricately strategize their own breakup. Blurring the line between documentary and narrative by casting real-life couple (and filmmakers) Daryl Wein and Zoe Lister-Jones as themselves, the film takes an uncensored look at love, lust and the pangs of codependency.
Check out the real trailer for it:
BREAKING UPWARDS will premiere Wednesday, April 15, 2009 at 9:45pm at FSU’s Student Life Center theatre and is expected to be followed by a Q & A session with the filmmakers.
