When we think of the “American” filmmaker, a lot of people come to mind. There are the big names of course. Speilberg, Scorcese, Bay, Cameron, and Coppola (x2) — just to name a few.
But there’s something about a distinctly Texan film and something about friends making films together. That’s why Far from Tree is a short worth some of my attention right now, even though it is limited in the middle of DIFF.
It’s not every day a Southern short dealing with such powerful feminist subjects comes up. They’re the kind of material to get the right audiences buzzing.
Check out Cheryl Allison (NO LETTING GO, Broadway star), Angie Bolling (ROBOCOP, TEXASVILLE) and Gabriel Rush (MOONRISE KINGDOM, THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL) as family dynamics and “apples” are explored.
