Just watched the post-screening q&A that ION Cinema posted on YouTube featuring the director and producers of the movie. Nothing earth shattering to be gathered except that the film was SO low-budget, they only had 18 days to film, with each day lasting between 8-10 hours!! Not sure bout anyone else, but I hadn't heard this before...
It's possible that some distributors at Sundance were interested, but recommended they go back and re-edit or add back some scenes with dialogue, something like that. Though, listening to Dosunmu and the screenwriter, it doesn't sound like there was anything cut that would really add anything in that regard.
Let's see if they take this to Toronto in September. If so, I bet someone will snatch it up then, especially if they feel Pfeiffer can be a big player in the Oscar race, depending on how the other films/contenders are looking.
Think that picture I put up is a set picture and not a still from the movie, looks like a production camera on the right side and the lighting and tone of it is much brighter and lighter than the stills we have seen already
I think you are right. Didn't even notice the black thing on the right of the picture before.
Anyway, in terms of possible distributors, the most likely seem to be:
IFC Films Weinstein (he's broke, but he tends to buy small art house films like this a lot and I can't imagine the price tag for this being that high.) The Film Arcade
Just based on every review basically saying this will only appeal to art house audiences. Any other distributors that fit that mold? I just don't see Sony Pictures Classics or Lionsgate buying this unless it really does well at a fall festival.
