“My America” and “Black & White & Sex” premier screening at 2011 Sydney Film Festival

Great news! Two films which I recently scored have been programmed to premier at the 2011 Sydney Film Festival. Read on for more details. See you there.

My America is a feature documentary about Peter Hegedus’ search for his Amercian dream. Growing up in socialist Hungary in the 1980s, filmmaker Peter Hegedus was obsessed with Hollywood movies – the kind where the USA always stood for truth and justice. This film is  quirky, fun and heartfelt journey where Peter discovers that America does not turn out to be what he expected.

Black & White & Sex Australian producer John Winter (Rabbit-Proof Fence, Doing Time with Patsy Cline) makes his directorial debut with a conceptually daring work that adopts a film-within-a-film structure. Angie (played alternately by Katherine Hicks, Anya Beyersdorf, Valerie Bader, Roxane Wilson, Michelle Vergara Moore, Dina Panozzo, Saskia Burmeister and Maia Thomas) is a sex worker being interviewed by a director (Matthew Holmes) who is making a film about sex.  This film is intriguing and intoxicating. Worth a watch!
