NarrowsburgUnited States, 2019 : Canadian Premiere
NARROWSBURG tells the story of a French film producer and a mafioso-turned-actor who attempts to turn a small American town into the “Sundance of the East.” Persuading the townspeople that they can be movie stars, the pair create a fever pitch of excitement, launching a film festival and shooting a gangster movie. As this stranger-than-fiction tale unspools, it becomes a meditation on the power of cinema, and the fine line between dreams and delusions.
