Across the Sea

After premiering Gravity Was Everywhere Back Then in Europe we now have opened the floodgates for screenings all over the world! Woohoo! The next European screening is just around the corner at the Punto De Vista International Documentary Film Festival in Pamplona, Spain which takes place February 22nd-27th! Upon trying to understand the festival I came across a section on their website labeled "Jean Vigo" and was pretty confused...Jean Vigo? Wasn't he the French film director who made striking, beautiful, poetic films that paved the way for the French New Wave? L'Atalante? The vivid, gorgeous love story set aboard a ship? Yes! He is! The Punto De Vista Film Festival sees Vigo (born to a Spanish anarchist father apparently) as a perfect example of what the festivals driving force is through his poetic realism, "documented perspective" and visionary filmaking. The ideology of the festival alone is just as beautiful and progressive as the work it showcases, once again making me so proud to be a part of something so culturally moving & forward thinking!

I hope we can make it out to some of the international screenings (especially after the eye opening time we had in our brief Gravity fueled trip to The Netherlands via Belgium and Dublin- photos of our morning, afternoon and night in three countries, in one day, seen here!) but I'm not sure how likely that is given our busy schedule! For now I will try and keep everyone posted on Gravity's whereabouts..including info on our upcoming US live show mini-tour which starts off in New York City on February 17th and ends in one of my favorite film towns- more on that when the awesome, secret, midwest film town announces their official film festival schedule later this week!
