#64. Sun Don’t Shine – Amy Seimetz
Bar none: Amy Seimetz is the hardest working person in the indie biz. At least this is the impression one can get when counting the number of productions she is involved with. While the majority of her creds come from being in front of the camera, after a trio of shorts in the director’s chair, Seimetz made her DIY feature debut midway this year and with a locked picture I’d bet that Sundance will want more Seimetz and make room for Sun Don’t Shine in the NEXT section. The Gotham in Progress selected project was featured in IndieWIRE and Filmmaker Magazine, and we learn that the thriller inspired by 70’s “Two-Lane Blacktop”, “Deliverance” and “Woman Under the Influence”
and shot on Super 16mm.
Gist: This is about two people (Kate Lyn Sheil and Kentucker Audley) on the road in Florida doing very bad things.
