Short Film: Brothers

Short Film: Brothers

Ice Hockey director Larry Cohen has finally released his last Kickstarter funded film, Brothers, online, to promote fundraising for his latest film, The Worst – which stars Dean Winters (Oz, 30 Rock, and best known as “Mayhem” in the All State Commercials). Brothers was an official election of the San Francisco International Film Festival, and tells the story of two brothers on a road trip to their grandmother’s funeral, with one of them not being aware of it.

It’s a great, well written, and expertly shot short, what we’ve come to expect from Cohen.

Check out the film below, and learn more about The Worst through its Kickstarter page.

IFFBoston ’11 VIDEO: Interview with ICE HOCKEY Filmmakers

I had the chance to ask the filmmakers behind ICE HOCKEY a few questions following their Thursday night screening at IFFBoston. Director Larry Cohen and Producer Tim Whitney offer a little insight on how they cast Ken Daneyko, and speak a little bit about what their next project is.

ICE HOCKEY follows a day in the life of Danny, a high school hockey defenseman. School, girls, and his next-door neighbor: hockey legend Ken Daneyko. A film with a cast of non-actors, shot on location in New Jersey — and starring a high school Hockey Team, and NJ Devil Alumni Randy Velischek and Devil Ken Daneyko. The film screens a second time at the Somerville Theater on Monday. Buy Tickets Here

IFFBoston ’11 Spotlight: ICE HOCKEY

With all the feature length goodness, it is easy to miss some of the great shorts that are featured at IFFBoston. One we want to highlight in particular is from director Larry Cohen, ‘Ice Hockey.’

The film follows a day in the life of Danny, a high school hockey defenseman. School, girls, and his next-door neighbor: hockey legend Ken Daneyko. A film with a cast of non-actors, shot on location in New Jersey – and starring a high school Hockey Team, and NJ Devil Alumni Randy Velischek and Devil Ken Daneyko, is a work that should not be missed.

Check out the film at Shorts Package 2, this Thursday, April 28th, at 9pm or next Monday, May 2nd, at 6:45pm at the Somerville Theater.
