Two world premieres in 2017: The Departure and The Cage Fighter
Two films I edited will premiere in 2017. The Departure, premiering at the Tribeca Film Festival, tells the story of Nemoto, an unorthodox Japanese suicide counselor who is also combating his own demons. The Cage Fighter, which I also co-produced, follows Joe Carman as he breaks promises to his family and risks his own health so he can get back into the fighting cage. The film will premiere at the San Francisco International Film Festival.
The Cage Fighter (2017)
Life, Animated nominated for a 2017 Academy Award
The film has also won nine audience awards, garnered a DGA and PGA nomination, and won the directing award at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival.
Brooklyn Vitagraph? The Brooklyn Vitagraph (vie-ta-graf) Company takes it name from Brooklyn’s silent film era Vitagraph Studios (1906 – 1925). The old Vitagraph Studios produced films on Avenue M in Midwood, Brooklyn, and the original smoke stack still shows the Vitagraph name.
