Among the crop of heavily anticipated films from already established filmmakers at festivals, there's always the potential of being pleasantly surprised by great work from new blood. We have an exclusive first look from one such debut film, which makes its world premiere on March 11th in the narrative competition at SXSW in Austin.
Writer/directors Ruben Amar and Lola Bessis collaborated on the award winning short film "Checkpoint" last year, and now they're back on the festival circuit with their first feature, "Swim Little Fish Swim." Starring Dustin Guy Defa from Andrew Bujalski's current festival breakout hit "Computer Chess," as well as co-director Bessis, the film follows a young married Chinatown couple who finds the balance of their relationship thrown into turmoil by the appearence of a bubbly 19-year-old French artist (Bessis).
