From the freshly announced lineup for the 2011 Sundance Film Festival’s New Frontiers section, which will be up in full on indieWIRE.com momentarily:
Three’s Company: The Drama, by James Franco
Three’s Company: The Drama is a multi-media examination of the classic 70s sit-com. Television has undoubtedly shaped our world: our increased exposure to dramatic entertainment, the shapes of our houses, the shape of the time in our day. In this piece James Franco hopes to pull television from the box and view it from “a slightly oblique perspective”.
James Franco has been acting in films for 14 years and a painter for over 20. 2010 saw the festival premieres of his short films Herbert White, The Feast of Stephen, and The Clerk’s Tale, as well as the documentary feature Saturday Night. Franco also opened his first solo art exhibition, The Dangerous Book Four Boys, and, in conjunction with his guest appearance on General Hospital, successfully blended media with performance art at The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles (MOCA).
