VISIONFEST 04, running June 23-27 at the Iris & B. Gerald Cantor Film Center (36 East Eighth Street, in the heart of the NYU campus, in Manhattan), will kick off its opening night with “Able Edwards”, which festival co-director Bruno Derlin described as “a truly groundbreaking sci-fi feature.” Our own Don Lewis had a bit to say about it here.
Also screening during this year’s event will be “Juvies”, a documentary feature, directed by Leslie Neale, dealing with the impact that adult sentencing has on young criminal offenders, is narrated by Mark Wahlberg (who also exec-produced). Also on the roster of films is “The Ingrate”, by Krystoff Przykucki, a short subject film, executive produced and starring Kathy Bates, and a spine-tingling thriller entitled “Sonata”, directed by Boris Undorf. The latter will be celebrating its East Coast premiere at Visionfest, immediately following the film’s unveiling at this year’s LA-based film festival, Dances With Films. Another feature already confirmed and slated to close this year’s fest is Nyle Cavazos Garcia’s “Clean”, a sobering look at the Hollywood elite, as seen through the eyes of a limo driver.
