FACE VALUE’s Niabi Caldwell Rocks The Fest Circuit; An Amusing Theory About Our SXSW Screening

FACE VALUE's Niabi Caldwell Rocks The Fest Circuit; An Amusing Theory About Our SXSW Screening

As we head into our next round of screenings of “Face Value” at the Sarasota Film Festival this week, I recently read an amusing theory that Gabe Wardell from the Atlanta Film Festival noted on his blog regarding our unusual screening matchup with Michael Tully‘s music doc “Silver Jew” at SXSW:

The short before, “Face Value,” seemed to have little in common with the feature. The feature is a music doc about one man’s religious and artistic epiphany, the other is a comic narrative short by the Israel brothers.

Then it became clear:

1) both films feature a stranger in a strange land struggling to make a connection.
2) “Silver Jew” is set in Israel, “Face Value” is BY the Brother’s Israel.
3) Both films are by indieWIRE bloggers. (Commenting on this last bit makes me feel soooooooooooooo indulgent.)

Another connection I noticed this week is that “Face Value” actress Niabi Caldwell is also in a short film, Look Alive, Mr. Kline, which is screening at the Atlanta Film Festival. So Niabi has a total of four festival screenings in the next two weeks:

Apr 20 2007 2:45P
FACE VALUE @ SARASOTA FILM FESTIVAL Sarasota FL

Apr 20 2007 5:30P
LOOK ALIVE, MR. KLINE @ ATLANTA FILM FESTIVAL Atlanta GA

Apr 21 2007 11:00A
FACE VALUE @ SARASOTA FILM FESTIVAL Sarasota FL

Apr 26 2007 7:00P
LOOK ALIVE, MR. KLINE @ ATLANTA FILM FESTIVAL Atlanta GA

Girl, you’re on fire.
