But I recently learned that Sarah Jessica Parker narrated the 1997 documentary Life Apart: Hasidism in America. I’m sure Hasidics would welcome her ingenious portrayal as SATC’s Carrie, a non-wedded, sexually carefree Manhattan journalist. The film screened last week at Lincoln Center’s First Run Features.
The documentary examines how the Internet affects society by filming the director’s life 24/7 for six months. It opens August 28 at IFC Center.
As print media dies out, magazines scavenge to find ways to survive. A great example is what I like to call branded content experiences. ‘SUP’s integration with Fox Searchlight’s upcoming indie summer hit (500) Days of Summer exemplfies such:
“(500) Days of Summer isn’t a love story, it’s a story about love. ‘SUP Magazine isn’t a music magazine, it’s a magazine about music. Obviously, a match made in heaven. Welcome to (500) Days of ‘SUP, a daily web site created by the staff of ‘SUP, about music, culture and art, based around and inspired by the Fox Searchlight feature film (500) Days of Summer.”
From my friend Aaron Walker, the guy who brought you the YouTube sensation The Muppets Take “Manhattan”, comes Break-Up Album. The short film bridges the troubled waters of ending a dysfunctional relationship in order to produce the next great break-up album. Share it with your friends or coax the Ivy Film Festival jury members into naming it the winner.
