On Wednesday, August 1st, NewFilmmakers presents SOLITARY CHILD as well as two short film programs.

Our 6:00 PM First Short Program presents three new films. In Christina Parisi YOUR MOVE (2011, 8 minutes) one man sees another man being treated poorly and decides to do something about it. Matthew Gustafson PULL (2010, 28 minutes) is a movie about sex and tractors. In Jeffrey Lee Woods THE EXTERMINATOR (2011, 31 minutes) a volatile ex-marine's attempt at rehabilitation is destroyed after bonding with his new client, a deranged Vietnam veteran, while working as a night time exterminator in the corroding streets of New York City's Chinatown.

Our 7:15 PM Second Short Film Program presents another three films. In Elizabeth Friedman THE MAN IN THE SUIT (2011, 18 minutes) two unusual people cross paths and form a strange bond. In Roxine Helberg VIRGIN EYES (2011, 23 minutes) a fifteen year old Andrea's love for her father is turned around forever. In Peter Tedone UNSEEN (2012, 24 minutes) a scream in the middle of the night turns the simple, quiet life on an elderly Innkeeper upside down. The 'Easy Come, Easy Go' bed and breakfast is known locally as a peaceful break from the outside world but an uninvited stranger intrudes.

Our 8:45 Feature Presentation is Jeff Feldman SOLITARY CHILD. Ricky, a high school baseball star on his way to the major leagues, loses his chance at glory when he gets into a drunk driving accident only weeks before his graduation. Unable to cope with the guilt of maiming and almost killing his girlfriend, he hastily leaves New Jersey for Boston to start a new life, never looking back, until he's forced to run home to save himself from a group of small time hit men. Ricky discovers it's not always possible to go home when he arrives to more problems than he had when he left and a lot of open wounds he can only try to mend.

NewFilmmakers screens at Anthology Film Archives on the Lower East Side at 32 Second Avenue & 2nd Street. NewFilmmakers LA screens in the Stanley Kramer Theater at the Sunset Gower Studio and has become a leading showcase for new films in Hollywood. Many features screened at NewFilmmakers are now available on NewFilmmakers Online. New York Admission is $6 for the whole evening and tickets are available at the Anthology Box Office the night of screening. Additional information is available on our website at www.NewFilmmakers.com.
