The ITVS Indie Roundup

Posted on August 31, 2012

A curated list of indie news and recommendations from ITVS’s Rebecca Huval.

While San Francisco says goodbye to Woody Allen (he just wrapped up shooting his latest film in the Bay), here’s a comprehensive 1995 Paris Review interview of the screenwriter:“I have no compunction stealing from Strindberg, Chekhov, Perelman, Fellini, and Bob Hope’s writers,” Allen said. 

Speaking of screenwriters, learn about the lesser-known art of documentary writing from the Writer’s Guild Award-winning duo behind Better This World. Check out the wonders of stop-motion animation beyond Tim Burton: This poetic and beautifully textured short film, Undone by Hayley Morris, captures the unraveling of the mind caused by Alzheimer’s. It was inspired by Morris’s grandfather’s struggle with the disease. This app could prove helpful. 

If you want to watch a movie, but don’t know where to find it, GoWatchIt allows you to search the film and see whether it’s playing in theatres, on DVD, BluRay, online, or OnDemand. 

Telluride Film Festival kicks off today in Colorado with a juicy lineup of films including Noah Baumbuch’s Frances Ha, and Roger Michell’s Hyde Park on Hudson, starring Bill Murray and Laura Linney. This poignant photo series shows how workers carpool in Monterrey, Mexico. Pickup beds are strewn with wheelbarrows, rakes, and boxes, and men huddle on top for warmth or sprawl across the beds asleep. Each shot gives insights into the city and its residents.
