A pyrotechnics addict in love, a moody French-Canadian out to save a Palestinian refugee, and a trailblazing dolphin. They’ll all hit the big screen at the third annual Greenpoint Film Festival next month.
Woven Spaces, a Greenpoint-based arts organization that has been working out of Brooklyn since 1996, will screen four days worth of animations, docs, narratives, and experimental films at venues around the neighborhood, including the Greenpoint Boathouse.
The festival’s first year, in 2011, saw the premiere of Jonas Mekas’s Mars Bar movie. This year, feature films include a French-Canadian drama titled La Vallée Des Larmes (Valley of Tears) and The Pyrotechnician’s Daughter, an animated love story about “a nuclear weapon engineer with a taste for pyrotechnics.”
