This Sunday, May 19, a lucky few Kartemquin fans will be in the audience giving their feedback on 4 of our new documentaries at the 2013 Kartemquin Spring Showcase. We are delighted to announce that this event is already sold out! The Chicago Sun-Times spoke to the filmmakers ahead of the event, noting that gathering "audience input" has always been a tenet of our production model. This year's showcase will feature premieres of footage from Cooked, The Homestretch, Mormon Movie, and American Arab. Xan Aranda, producer/director of Mormon Movie, has also been getting media attention. Read an interview with her in New City, and hear her tomorrow on Live from the Heartland on WLUW radio at 9-10am. If you weren't able to get a ticket, you can follow on twitter with the #SpringShowcase hashtag and @kartemquin account. We'll also make a recap video after the event.
