Also opening in limited theatrical release today… Making its theatrical premiere in NYC at the reRun Gastropub Theater.
Screen Media Films acquired the film to release as 1 of 7 titles on its 2012 theatrical slate, which was unveiled in January.
Directed by Damon Russell from a script penned by Chris Knittel and Curtis Snow, Snow On Tha Bluff’s synopsis reads:
The Story of Atlanta robbery boy and crack dealer, Curtis Snow, who stole a camera from some college kids in a dope deal and made a documentary about his life.
The question of course is whether it’s real, as in a documentary or docu-drama, or whether it’s a *fake* or a mockumentary in the same mold as those Hollywood hoax flicks like Paranormal Activity and The Last Exorcism…
I dunno… I still haven’t seen it.
Snow On Tha Bluff premiered at last year’s Slamdance Film Festival, and later screened at the Atlanta Film Festival, where it was reported that some audience members were unsure of the authenticity of a scene in which a kid puts his hands into a pile of cocaine with a razor blade in it, causing a bit of a public raucus, which lead to a police investigation.
Or was that report also a *fake* and a marketing ploy by the filmmakers?
Regardless, you folks in NYC can now find out for yourselves It’ll be at the reRun for 1 week, and filmmaker Russell will be in attendance for today’s 7pm and 10pm screenings.
I’ve got Tribeca Film Festival screenings almost all weekend, but I’ll try to squeeze this one in as well.
In the meantime, watch the trailer below if you haven’t already seen it,. and decide for yourselves:
