Some more titles we’ve announced this week, as part of the SXSW 2008 lineup:
Battle in Seattle, directed by Stuart Townsend. An all-star, edge-of-your-seat glimpse at the 1999 WTO demonstrations in Seattle, told from the perspective of protesters (Michelle Rodriguez, Martin Henderson, Andre Benjamin), police (Woody Harrelson, Channing Tatum), and city officials (Ray Liotta).
Crawford, directed by David Modigliani. A balanced and comprehensive documentary look at the town of Crawford, TX and how it evolved once George W. Bush moved there.
Mister Lonely, directed by Harmony Korine. A Michael Jackson impersonator (Diego Luna) befriends a Marilyn Monroe impersonator (Samantha Morton), who takes him to live at an unusual commune for others like them.
The Promotion, directed by Steve Conrad. Two supermarket managers (Seann William Scott and John C. Reilly) face-off against each other when a possible company promotion is brought to the table.
The Toe Tactic, directed by Emily Hubley. In this hybrid of live-action and animation, a young woman grieves for her father while unaware of the magical world around her.
