Congrats to 2016 Sundance Film Festival Doc Winners “Weiner”, who took home the U.S. Documentary Grand Prize, and “NUTS!”, winner of the U.S. Documentary Editing Award.
“Weiner” was produced by a former UnionDocs Collaborative CoLAB fellow, Elizabeth Delaune Warren and directed by Josh Kriegman and Elyse Steinberg. It was recently acquired by Sundance Selects.
Many politicians have seen their careers careen off the tracks, but few instances have been captured so completely on film as the incisive and painfully funny Weiner Cheap Buy . With unprecedented access to Anthony Weiner, his family, and his campaign team as they mount his New York City mayoral campaign, the film documents the impending political meltdown of epic proportions. What begins as an unexpected comeback from a disgraced ex-congressman takes a sharp turn once Weiner is forced to admit to new sexting allegations. As the media descends and rips apart his every move, Weiner tries desperately to forge ahead, but the increasing pressure and crippling 24-hour news coverage halts his political aspirations dead in their tracks.
buy betapace prescribing Weiner order sinequan generic Pills deftly teeters the line between political farce and personal tragedy, exposing the ex-congressman’s hubris while highlighting the sheer ugliness of the media’s takedown of his family. With the city of New York as a loud and bustling backdrop, this documentary charges through an increasingly baffling political campaign with unflinching clarity, humor, and pathos.
“NUTS!” was directed by Penny Lane, a frequent collaborator with UnionDocs, which also acts as a fiscal sponsor for the film.
“NUTS!” tells the mostly true story of Dr. John Romulus Brinkley, an eccentric genius who built an empire with his goat-testicle impotence cure and a million-watt radio station. Using animated reenactments, interviews, archival footage, and a hilariously unreliable narrator, NUTS! traces Brinkley’s rise from poverty and obscurity to the heights of celebrity, wealth and influence in depression-era America.
