Unfortunately, we didn't accompany Cherry to the Brasilia Film Festival, but I guess one can't expect to hop around the world attending exotic film festivals when the next project still needs financing (see the EvenHand website).
We were first contacted by the Brasilia Festival about a year ago because they wanted to screen Julian Po. I called Fine Line to get their permission to submit the film, which they were happy to give. We hit a snag, however, when the festival discovered that Julian Po had already been released in Brazil on video, and was thus not eligible to compete. In any event, they eventually screened Cherry and accepted it for the festival. Here is the wrap-up e-mail from the festival director:
Cherry in Brazil - sold out premiére
The article Carlos refers to was based on a telephone interview I gave to a local Brasilia paper. I'll add it to the Publicity Page when it arrives, although my Portuguese is not what it used to be (it's there now - JP).
Don't forget to rent Cherry at a Blockbuster Video store near you and visit the EvenHand website to find out how our latest film is progressing.
