"A Walk Into the Sea" Opens Today
Received the below email from Doug Block (51 Birch Street) via the D-Word this morning. I saw A Walk Into the Sea: Danny Williams and the Warhol Factory earlier this year at the Tribeca Film Festival. Check it out:
To all NY area D-Word members:
Esther Robinson's A Walk Into the Sea: Danny Williams and the Warhol Factory, which I produced (with Esther and Tamra Raven) is having its theatrical premiere today at the Cinema Village in NYC.
I'll be at the 7:20pm screening tonight, along with Esther and others from the film, so hope to see you there. But, if not, please try and come this weekend. The distributor (Arthouse Films) is waiting on the NY grosses before deciding how widely to take it out.
The film is about Esther's search to uncover the truth about her uncle Danny, a budding filmmaker, who was Warhol's lover when he disappeared in 1966. It's a truly exceptional personal documentary with a ravishing cinematic sensibility that demands to be seen on a big screen. I'd ask you to come as a favor if I wasn't so sure you'd really be doing yourself the favor.
All the best...
