    LAFF | Stories from the Ozarks: "Branson" Director Brent Meeske

    Branson’s 108 live shows attract seven million visitors a year. With that kind of business, it’s not surprising to find performers of every ilk trying to make it big in this little city tucked away in the scenic Ozark Mountains of southern Missouri’s bible belt. For this engag...

    LAFF | Exorcising Exes: "Harmony and Me" Director Bob Byington

    Break-ups are never easy, especially when your ex-girlfriend already checked out several months before the official end. Twentysomething Harmony, however, just can’t seem to drop his torch for the departed Jessica even as his motley crew of friends, his gleefully odd family, and his obnoxious boss r...

    "My work helps heal me": "Under Our Skin" Director Andy Abrahams Wilson

    Andy Abrahams Wilson's "Under Our Skin" "investigates the untold story of Lyme disease, an emerging epidemic with staggering consequences. Each year thousands go undiagnosed or misdiagnosed, told that their symptoms are 'all in their head.' Following the stories of patients and physicians fighting the disease, the film brings into focus a haunting picture not only of our health care system and its inability to cope with a silent and growing terror, but of a medical establishment all too willing to put profits ahead of patients." The film opens this Friday, June 19 at the IFC Center in New York. indieWIRE contacted Wilson recently via email to...

    LAFF | Imaginary Friends, Blanket Tosses, and Diaries: "Dear Lemon Lima," Director Suzi Yoonessi

    When 13-year-old Vanessa experiences her first breakup, she rebounds by following the boy to his stifling prep school, where she receives the only minority scholarship for her Yup’ik background. Landing at the bottom of the school’s social ladder and confined to the weight room during P.E., she begins to rally with the other school misfits, including an animal-loving boy with overbearing parents, a girl named Nothing, and a pathological liar claiming Puff Daddy is her father. Vanessa’s attempts to find herself and win back the love of her life flounder, until she’s presented with an opportunity to captain the oddball team for the school’s bas...

    From WASP to Indie Filmmaker: Alexander Olch Talks "Windmill Movie"

    Richard P. Rogers (1943-2001) was a NYC baby boomer, born to privilege: a Harvard-educated WASP who became a first-rate independent filmmaker ("Quarry" and "Elephants" both opened at Film Forum in the '70s) and a gifted film teacher. But he was also a tortured, neurotic soul who freely admitted to being jealous of Steven Spielberg and simultaneously ashamed of the impulse. Torn between narrow class loyalties and broader professional goals and political values, Rogers found the time to juggle multiple relationships with the skill of a world-class Lothario, but was unable to complete an autobiographical film he had worked on for 25 years. His f...

    LAFF | Telling Children's Katrina Stories: "After the Storm" Director Hilla Medalia

    Hilla Medalia’s inspiring documentary, ostensibly about three New York theater vets who come to New Orleans to mount a benefit production of the Broadway musical "Once on this Island," goes right to the eye of the storm. The production, which hauntingly mirrors the real-life events of the hurricane, is fraught with the raw emotions of children struggling to live in a broken-down city. Quickly disabusing any notion that New Orleans’ problems can be fixed with mere wood and nails, the film journeys into the personal family life of each teen cast member. The mesmerizing courage of these young performers speaks volumes about the role art can play...
