iW NEWS | First Run Takes "Midway"

First Run Features has announced the acquisition of film critic Godfrey Cheshire's "Moving Midway, and will release the film in New York on September 12, 2008, followed by wider openings in the South and around the country in the fall. In the film, Cheshire takes a closer look at his own family, exploring their decision to physically relocate their North Carolina plantation home. In the words of a description, "Through movies and music, Cheshire examines the Southern plantation in American history and culture, and how the racial legacy from the past continues into the present." "We're very pleased to be distributing Godfrey's wonderful debut film," said Marc Mauceri, First Run's Vice President, in a statement. "We've been fans of his criticism for more than a decade, and to see him make the leap from film critic to film maker is very exciting." The film debuted at last year's Full Frame festival and then screened at the 2008 New Director/New Films Festival. [Peter Knegt]
