Borderline Adds “White” to the Album; Josh Mond Reteams with Christopher Abbott for Feature Debut

After steering Borderline Films partners Sean Durkin and Antonio Campos’ short and feature film projects to critical success, it’s now Josh Mond’s turn to step forward into the spotlight/director’s chair. Featuring Cynthia Nixon, Ron Livingston, Scott (Kid Cudi) Mescudi, newbie Mackenzie Leigh and from the Borderline coffers indie actors David Call (Two Gates of Sleep) and Christopher Abbott (Martha Marcy May Marlene and Mond’s untitled multi-sensorial short film debut), theWrap reports that Mond is in the midst of filming James White. The drama commenced production in the big apple this December, and because we’re in the know…will be switching locations outside the frigid Manhattan backdrop.

Gist: This coming-of-ager is about a troubled young man (Abbott) in the midst of momentous family challenges.

Worth Noting: Here is a recent sample of Mond’s vid work: Mayday Parade (Kids In Love).

Do We Care?: Perhaps the more aesthetically avantgarde filmmaker of the Borderline crew, we’ve been waiting for Mond to break bread for awhile now. Don’t be surprised if James White receives a Cannes invite. Here is a blast from our past.
