We’re thrilled to announce that Wicked Delicate’s newest feature documentary will have its World Premiere in November at DOC NYC. The film – infused with science fiction, atmospheric soundscapes, and a new score by award-winning composers Simon Beins & Ben Fries – explores the terraforming of Mars and the waterways of New York City. Stay tuned for more news about festivals and distribution!
In May we had a grand time hosting a Wicked Delicate spring showcase (and calling it a gala) at Anthology Film Archives in NYC. The gala featured previews of some works in progress – including Bluespace, Project Dad, Positively Beautiful, and The Search for General Tso – and a screening of Amanda Murray’s short film WORLD FAIR, fresh from its premiere at IFFBoston. It was especially fun to have several characters from that film in attendance – Hi Helene, Stanley, Jim, and Seymour! – along with a lot of folks from near and far who make our work possible. Thanks to all the friends, family, and filmmaking partners who came. Here are a few highlights from the red carpet circles:
And hey! There are some new ways to see our recent films:
THE CITY DARK is now featured digitally on iTunes and Amazon Instant. DVDs of WORLD FAIR are for sale on Amazon. As always, if you’d like to host a screening, drop us a line at [email protected]
After a long winter indoors, the WD team has kicked off a spring full of shoots for our forthcoming film BLUESPACE, a feature-length documentary about terraforming and waterways. Last week, just a few blocks from our office, we hopped in canoes and paddled up and down the murky and malodorous Gowanus Canal while marveling at its toxic beauty.
Owen Foote (below), of the Gowanus Dredgers Canoe Club, told us all about the canal’s foul industrial past and potentially blue-er future.
The Dredgers lead canoe trips all summer and if you have the chance to take one, we recommend it. Paddling along the Gowanus is a unique (and, um, multi-sensory) way to experience Brooklyn, and a good reminder that much of New York City is defined by its waterways.
