Balcony Releasing Gets "39 Pounds of Love" and "Trudell"

Balcony Releasing has acquired two new feature films for release in the United States and Canada. Dani Menkin's "39 Pounds of Love" is about a 34-year-old man who was born with a rare form of muscular dystrophy and given six years to live. The film recently received the 2005 Ophir for Best Documentary, the Israeli equivalent of an Academy Award. "39 Pounds of Love" will open in New York City on Dec. 23. In "Trudell," which premiered at the 2005 Sundance Film Festival, filmmaker Heather Rae presents the story of Native-American activist and poet John Trudell. The film is expected to open in New York City and Los Angeles in January. Connie White and Greg Kendall formed Balcony Releasing in 2002 to distribute "Daughter from Danang," which was awarded the 2002 Sundance Grand Jury Prize for Best Documentary. [M.L. Liu]
