Filmmaker Doug Block is a brave man. He has chosen to take a close look at an area of life that most of us would rather not know too much about: the parent's troubled marriage and related details. His doc 51 Birch Street sounds very interesting, has gotten excellent reviews, lots of festival play and apparently both Al Jazeera & Israeli TV are big fans. The film opens in New York on this coming Wednesday - October 18, I expect to have a review here before then. Check out the film's site for more information on screening dates & reviewer reactions.
My Interview with DVGuru.com
Just did a lengthy interview for DVGuru.com re: Date Number One & self-distribution. It should be up next week, will post the link here.
Kind of related: still no definite word on when the Variety article that may feature Date Number One will run. Will let ya know when I know something firm.
Have an excellent weekend.
