From the Los Angeles Times: ‘A drama about a Liberian plantation worker beginning a new life in New York City and a documentary about a Korean couple who have been married for 76 years claimed the top prizes at the Los Angeles Film Festival on Wednesday.
Takeshi Fukunaga‘s “Out of My Hand” [Television/imperfectfilms] took home the U.S. Fiction award, and Mo-Young Jin’s “My Love, Don’t Cross That River” won the Documentary Award. Both films made their North American premieres at the fest, which concludes Thursday.’
Can’t believe this happened.. Congrats and thank you to all the cast and crew!!
If you are in LA, there will be an additional screening tomorrow!
Indiewire has an excellent review of our film, “Out of My Hand,” now in it’s North American premiere at the LA Film Festival.
‘ “Out of My Hand” constantly lulls you into thinking that you know where it is going only to have events play out in unexpected ways. Fukunaga and his team have made a film that elegantly walks a tightrope. It eschews cliche and hoary plot points but it never does so in a way that seems unpredictable just for the sake of unpredictability. No mean feat.
… Fukunaga and his team adopt a simple, naturalistic approach in presenting this arduous labor in a way that recalls Italian Neo-Realism.’
OUT OF MY HAND (TELEVISION/ imperfectfilms) has it’s US premiere at the Los Angeles Film Festival 2015, home of the Independent Spirit Awards!
Congratulations writer-director Takeshi Fukunaggaand writer-producer Donari Braxton!
