Here is another cinema related success story for the Bronx. "Poetry Man" written and produced by James McCrery has been accepted to the Cannes Film Festival. I embedded a video with James McSherry and Iris Montalvo discussing the film. "Poetry Man" runs approximately 26 minutes and will be shown at the 1st ever Bronx Week Film Festival. For those that cannot make Cannes, tickets will be made available on a first come first serve basis on the Olympia Film Locations Inc. web site. When available I will let everyone know right here on the BoogieDowner.
Congratulations to James McSherry, Iris Montalvo, Marc Anthony Seda and everyone at Edgewater Productions that made the movie a reality. As an additional note I want to mention that Peter Green is one of the leading actors in the film. Peter Green played the alleged murder in the movie. His IMDB Credits are to long to list, but some of his work includes, Jerry MaGuire, Anger Management, Man on Wire and Frequency. It’s great that major actors like Peter Green believed in the Bronx. I am sure he knew the movie was a winner the second he picked up the script.

Synopsis as taken from the Cannes Film Festival web site;
"Based on a true story, Jimmy, an aspiring writer and Nicky, a neighborhood miscreant suspected of murder, face each other and the truth on the mean streets of the Bronx in this gritty tale of trust and betrayal. 'Poetry Man' is about the redemptive power of art when everything else fails you."
