New Publicist Shows in Sundance and Berlin

New Publicist Shows in Sundance and Berlin

He may have been around for a long time, but  until this Sundance where he was working on Jenni Olson’s “The Royal Road”, I had never heard of publicist, Matt Johnstone before.  This Berlin he is promoting a slew of films.

See his full slate below:

Dora Or The Sexual
Neuroses of Our

(Switzerland –
Germany / Panorama)

Dora, a life-loving, mentally disabled teenager, is taken off medication by her mother to allow her to mature and find her own independence. As she
explores her newfound sexuality, she becomes pregnant after a spontaneous sexual encounter with a suspicious man, and continues an affair with her dubious
suitor. This sexual awakening deeply affects her mother, and sets Dora on an unexpected path to adulthood and independence. Based on the acclaimed German
play by Lukas Bärfuss.

My Skinny Sister
(Sweden – Germany /

Just as Stella enters the exciting and awkward world of adolescence, she discovers that her idolized big sister Katja, a competitive figure skater, is
hiding an eating disorder. As the secret unravels and the disease tears the family apart, Stella is torn between her love for her sister and loyalty to her
family. Writer / Director Sanna Lenken, who struggled with anorexia as a teenager, has created a powerfully autobiographical debut feature film, with
striking debut feature performances from her two leading actresses.

Misfits(US – Denmark – Sweden / Panorama Dokumente)

A vibrant portrait of three brave LBGT teenagers in the ‘bible
belt’ of the US – Tulsa, Oklahoma, and the drop-in community center they
call home, as
they struggle to find themselves in a highly conservative and
religious community, where a church resides on nearly every street
Nuclear Nation II(Japan / Forum)

A sequel to the acclaimed documentary follows the displaced residents of Futaba, who have been exiled from their homes for over four years in the
wake of the Fukushima Nuclear reactor disaster. A powerful film that examines the human cost of nuclear energy and capitalism. Theme Music by
acclaimed composer Ryuichi Sakamoto.
To be Released Shortly
