Indiewire has an exclusive first look at the trailer for one of the latest non-fiction gems to come out of DOC NYC: “Misfire: The Rise and Fall of the Shooting Gallery.”
“Misfire” follows the tragic story of a group of SUNY Purchase graduates who gained and then lost everything with New York film company The Shooting Gallery. The Shooting Gallery was at once a pioneer of the independent film scene and a ’90s success story that delivered art-house classics such as “Sling Blade” and “You Can Count On Me.” When financial mismanagement and greed got the best of the rising yet overly valued company, it fell apart and took with it the creative and professional dreams of a group of young graduate friends.
The trailer to director Whitney Ransick’s “Misfire” gives us a taste of the nostalgic journey that began with rapid financial success and ended in a documentary that recalls the good and bad times of The Shooting Gallery.
“Misfire: The Rise and Fall of the Shooting Gallery” will screen Sunday November 17 at 7:00PM at the IFC Center in New York City.
