Discussion Follows with Writer, Director, Producer Jenny Deller
Jenny Deller's film Future Weather has won numerous awards
including the Alfred P. Sloan award at Hamptons International Film Festival and
was the Best Narrative Feature at the Napa Valley Film Festival.
There will be a Q&A after the screening. Topics of discussion
will include the process of making an independent feature as well as how Deller got the film distributed.
Featuring humorous, sharply drawn characters and powerful performances by Amy Madigan (Field of Dreams, Gone Baby Gone), Lili Taylor (Say Anything, Six Feet Under), and breakout star Perla Haney-Jardine (Kill Bill Vol. 2, Spider-Man 3), Future Weather is about finding the courage to survive change.
Synopsis: Lauduree is a 13-year-old loner, passionate about nature and obsessed with ecological disaster. Greta, her grandmother, is a fiery nurse jaded by alcohol and disappointment. When Lauduree is abruptly abandoned by her dreamer single mom, she decides to take survival into her own hands, forcing her and Greta to learn to trust each other and leap into the unknown.
