Kris Avedisian is the man in charge of “Donald Cried.” The new indie, premiering at the SXSW Film Festival next month, stars the writer-director as the titular Donald. The film marks Avedisian’s debut feature and is based on a short of the same title that he released in 2012.
The official synopsis reads: “Peter Latang (Jesse Wakeman) left working class Warwick, Rhode Island to reinvent himself as a slick, Wall Street mover and shaker. Fifteen years later, when he’s forced to return home to bury his Grandmother he loses his wallet on the trip. Stranded, the only person he can think of to help him out is his next door neighbor and former childhood friend Donald Treebeck (Kris Avedisian). Donald hasn’t changed a bit, and what starts as a simple favor turns into a long van ride into their past.”
In the exclusive clip above, Donald pontificates on the secret life of Peter, only to be disappointed. “Donald Cried” is coming to SXSW next month. Check out the exclusive clip above and the poster below.
