Hanging Downtown Screened in Boston
Hanging Downtown screened at the Boston International Film Festival on Monday.
The screening was at approximately the same time the bombs went off at the finish line of the Boston Marathon, sadly.
I spoke to Jason Escape by phone right after the screening ended, as events became known. Apparently the screening went very well -- the film looked great on the big screen, and sounded good, and Jason spoke at the Q&A session -- but in light of these other events, it's been impossible to celebrate or to even think about the film.
So, here's to hoping that when the new film -- Escape/Artist -- is complete, we make it into one of the Boston festivals, and get to attend a screening there, and that Boston has only peaceful events in its future.
