As we countdown the days (15!!) to the 2015 Woodstock Film Festival, we are sharing some of our favorite, must-see films at this year's festival. We kicked off the countdown yesterday with some excellent suggestions.
Check out today's staff picks below:
Today's Documentary Staff Pick, I WILL NOT BE SILENCED, charts the brave journey of Charlotte Campbell, a victim of gang rape in Kenya, as she attempts to bring her attackers to justice. Director Judy Rymer deftly helms an emotional, incisive documentary that interweaves the Charlotte's story with the Kenyan women inspired to stand up to their own perpetrators.
LAMB is today's Narrative Feature Staff Pick. Based on Bonnie Nadzam's 2011 novel, LAMB depicts the troubling relationship between a middle-age man (Ross Partridge) and the 11-year-old girl (Oona Laurence) he has taken in. Writer/Director/Star Ross Partridge succeeds in his directorial debut, skillfully handling sensitive material to craft a slow-burn, provocative drama that steadily unfolds as its uneasy tension reaches a boiling point.
Actor/Director Ross Partridge will join Michael Cristofer, Griffin Dunne, and Mary Stuart Masterson on the ACTORS and DIRECTORS PANEL for a sure-to-be enlightening discussion on the intersection between the two disciplines and how sometimes having worked on both sides of the fence is a plus, while other times not so much. The talk will be moderated by Martha Frankel.
