Update -- Tide of Tears snared a "best cinematography award at the NY festival.
See update below.
There is some news about the documentary film "Tide of Tears: The Collapse of the Cajun Coast", a film about the loss of the Louisiana bayous and the natural and political forces that have created the current situation. I first wrote about it here on Voiceover Universe in August.
It's a visually beautiful film filled with interesting characters and disturbing content.
The film's director, Dallas based Stephanie Kovac has gotten it placed in the New York Independent Film and Video festival next month in New York City. (July is Los Angeles).
As the narrator of the film, I am absolutely delighted.
Here's a link to a video clip
and the Festival's website
As a narrator, some of the names were tricky, but otherwise, my goal was to make sure I didn't get in the way of the story.
Here's an update:
We had a great time doing the festival. Even though the film was screened late on a Monday night, there was a decent crowd (and not all our people!) to see the film.
A number of us had gathered at a small Cajun style restaurant a few blocks away where the party began.
Thanks for all who offered support and especially the folks who turned out.
The film maker, Stephanie, is seeking additional funding for more distribution and to make the film longer.
I will keep y'all updated.
The world premiere, incidentally, came at the Small Crew film festival outside Toronto Sunday evening, March 22nd. Our U-S debut occured the following night.
