Sidetrack Films, producers of AJ Schnack's new doc, "Kurt Cobain About A Son" have signed on as co-producers of Zack Godshall's "Low and Behold," premiering in the Spectrum section at the 2007 Sundance Film Festival later this month. Described by the company as "the first narrative feature about Hurricane Katrina," the film is further described as:
"A blend of documentary and fiction...the film was written by and stars Barlow Jacobs, who evacuated New Orleans when Katrina hit before returning to work as an insurance claim adjuster. He then wrote a script based on those experiences and used the money he made to finance the film.
Sidetrack reps confirmed that they got involved at a rough cut stage, providing finishing funds and assisting with a festival and sales strategy. The film is being repped by William Morris. [Eugene Hernandez]
