PATTY REILLY WAS HERE -- NOW AT NEW FILMMAKERS
in "PATTY REILLY WAS HERE"
Photo by Andrew Serban (Director)
There's an on-going film festival at Anthology Film Archives, and a special film festival organized by New Filmmakers.
New Filmmakers is presenting a progam of short films related to drugs on Aug 5 at 6:00 in the Courtyard Theater at Anthology Film Archives as part of their Summer Festival of selected films.
One of the films, Patty Reilly Was Here, is by new director Andrew Serban, a former directing fellow at AFI Conservatory in LA. Andrew is also a terrific professional photojournalist, and a new director to watch.
Patty Reilly Was Here: Troubled young drifter PATTY REILLY dreams of escaping her life of poverty and abuse in the gentrifying neighborhood of Hell's Kitchen, NYC. After a well-dressed young woman accidentally bumps into her, she plunges into a maelstrom of rage and despair, and begs her lovelorn friend TODD for a plane ticket out west. When he balks, she seduces him in exchange for his dad's gun -- supposedly for self-protection, but actually to rob and avenge herself against the 'yuppie trash' that disrespected her.
