My newest film Charade will have three screenings along the west coast in late May. The premiere will be at Seattle International Film Festival on May 23rd, and will be the only one I can attend. A couple days later on May 25th it will screen at both Other Cinema in San Francisco, and EFF Portland.
Charade is based on themes and uses manipulated footage of the original 1963 film with Cary Grant and Audrey Hepburn. It's a film about identity, trust & lies. I've heard many stories about people who have lied about their past, changed their names and created new lives for themselves. The reasons for this behavior intrigues me, and was the starting point of making this film.
