Yarn-Bomb Paris / Phantom Filmmakers Over New York

In Paris —


Our friend, Shadowplayer Marvelous Mary was touched by NATAN, the documentary Paul Duane & I made, and by the thought that there’s no memorial at La Femis, the French film school, to mark the fact that the studio it’s built from was founded by Bernard Natan. Now, Mary happens to be in Paris on her hols, and this woollen banner appears overnight — I’m not saying you should draw any cause-and-effect relationship to these two facts. Not at all.

But it’s a Great Thing.


Meanwhile, or actually a little later, NATAN will screen at the Museum of the Moving Image in New York on Sunday, Jan 19th — please buy tickets and attend, New Yorkers. The screening is part of the First Look event, and we hope you will get your chance for a second or third look if and when we get wider distribution, but for now, this is your only guaranteed shot at seeing the movie, so please, SEE THE MOVIE. Paul, by happy chance, will be in New York and will attend the screening for a Q&A and in hopes that someone will buy him a drink.

A welcome thumbs-up from Richard Brody in the New Yorker.

Also, write reviews/previews, tell your friends, make it an EVENT! If you’re interested in writing about the film ahead of the screening and need to see it, get it touch below.

  1. Simon Fraser Says:

    I’ll be there! I’ll even buy Paul a drink.

  2. Excellent! I wish I could be there too! There’s a European festival coming up and I MIGHT make it to that. But the travel budget is well and truly broken after LA/Telluride.

  3. Dammit! This would happen when I’m out of town for the 3-day weekend (the 20th here in the States honors Martin Luther King Jr., who selflessly gave his life so that we could have another day off work).

    Well, I would be there. Fingers crossed for wider distribution.

  4. Tell your friends!

  5. Screening in Atlanta on Feb 16th!
    Hope I’ll be in town… buying a ticket just in case.

  6. Seriously, it’s a month-long festival and the only two movies I immediately want to see (this and THE LAST OF THE UNJUST) are screening just once, at the same time? I guess UNJUST will be a rental…
