おそいひと - Late Bloomer NYC Theatrical Run in July!
I initially hinted teasingly-like here in Japanese that Shibata Go's awesome feature film おそいひと (aka. LATE BLOOMER) would be getting some sort of NY theatrical run come the summer. Well I got an email from Iijichi-san over at Tidepoint Pictures and he has informed me that LATE BLOOMER will be (finally!) getting it's long overdue theatrical run this July!
It's a teeney-weenie one week run unfortunately but it'll be playing at the cute and compact Two-Boots Pioneer Theater starting Tuesday, July 25th. Calendar info is here. (But curiously there's no info about the film listed on the site as of yet...)
Anyhoo, I like the Pioneer a lot. It's a cool theater on Avenue A in Manhattan that's attached to a pizza parlor and video rental shop. They always show interesting indie films and, in fact, was where I had my very first screening of my short film OUT OF THE DARKNESS way back when. How's that for trivia?
So! If you live in the NY region and have a taste for crippled serial killers with drinking problems, then have I got a film for you! Includes an uber groovy soundtrack by World's End Girlfriend.
Go see it!
