Please join The Arts Council of Central Louisiana on Tuesday, October 4th at for a screening of Donald Cried, directed by Kris Avedisian. This film screening is part of the 2016 – 2017 Southern Circuit Tour of Independent Filmmakers.
Southern Circuit is the South’s only tour of filmmakers, providing communities with an interactive way of experiencing independent film. Southern Circuit provides organizations with the opportunity to screen work from emerging filmmakers and some of the medium’s most respected directors. Screenings are scheduled September 2016 through April 2017 throughout the South Arts nine-state region. The Arts Council of Central Louisiana is one of only two screening partners in Louisiana. The Southern Circuit Tour of Independent Filmmakers is a program of South Arts. Southern Circuit screenings are funded in part by a grant from South Arts in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts.
Peter Latang (Jesse Wakeman) left working class Warwick, Rhode Island to reinvent himself as a slick, Wall Street mover and shaker. Fifteen years later, when he’s forced to return home to bury his Grandmother, he loses his wallet on the trip. Stranded, the only person he can think of to help him out is his next door neighbor and former childhood friend Donald Treebeck (Kris Avedisian). Donald hasn’t changed a bit, and what starts as a simple favor turns into a long van ride into their past.
About the filmmaker:
Director Kris Avedisian was born in Cranston, Rhode Island, where he still resides. In the early 2000s, he studied film in San Francisco where he met Jesse Wakeman and Kyle Espeleta. They collaborated on their first project, Three Tears a Prince and a Forest. In 2013, their short, Donald Cried, won best narrative short at The Independent Film Festival Boston and later went on to receive special mention at the Slamdance Film Festival. The feature version of Donald Cried was shot in the winter of 2015 and was selected for IFP labs.
