Zack and Miri Make a Porno isn’t the only Zac movie you should see starting this weekend. Don’t forget Kurt Kuenne’s powerful, sad, and urgent documentary, Dear Zachary. The doc, which was a hit with audiences at festivals all year long (including SXSW), will open at New York’s Cinema Village this weekend with Kurt in attendance for Q&As. Even if you don’t typically care much for a director-in-attendance screening, you may change your mind for this film. Part of the film’s power is going in knowing very little, so I’m not gonna say much other than: go see it.
At the film’s premiere party Wednesday night in Tribeca, Kurt was looking forward to this labor of love finding its way to theaters (thanks to Oscilloscope Pictures and MSNBC Films). All of the critical attention and this theatrical release, have not changed Kurt’s primary and original mission: to inform people about the madness of a crazy judicial system. I’ve already said too much. If you don’t live in New York, the film opens in L.A. and Chicago on November 7 and will continue rolling out nationwide from there.
