New York City Premiere of Black

I wanted to post a few words about our first East Coast screening of Black. It went extremely well and in my opinion it was the best presentation of our film. The picture and sound were notably of the highest quality. We played in the larger of the two theaters that the Anthology Film Archives have there. The building itself feels historic. A beloved Avant Garde cinema house that feels rich with history of when it was Manhattan's 2nd street courthouse building.

Everyone we invited showed up and we had a good group of people watching the other films in our program. I did not get to see the film that played just before us but I did hear it was laced with nudity and outrageous behavior. So I'm confident everyone was awake and in good spirits as our film played.

I would like to thank all the support from the Anthology film chairs. In particular Barney Oldfield who went out of his way in making us feel welcome and supporting both of our early films. We felt honored to be apart of summer festival.

If you are in the NYC area please check out their awesome film schedule. It is very good.
