After a very successful Kickstarter campaign, Jared Callahan’s charming documentary “Janey Makes a Play” has been picked up for domestic distribution by indie outfit Uncork’d Entertainment.
The film “follows 90-year old Janey (Callahan’s own grandmother) as she writes and directs her latest original, socially relevant community theatre production for the small town in which she lives. Battling through the current recession, the colorful troupe of faithful townspeople cope with their own struggles by telling their story on stage.”
The film will be released in U.S. theaters on July 17 and will get a digital release on June 28.
