Love, the directorial debut from William Eubank, is a hugely ambitious movie that he made for peanuts in his back yard. But you wouldn’t know that from looking at the movie, which so impressed the jury awarded the film a special mention “for the resourcefulness and unwavering determination by a Director to realize his unique vision.” That’s pretty cool.
The film is getting a very unique release - it’s playing one night only in theaters as a Fathom Event on Wednesday. The event will simulcast a live appearance and Q&A in Boston across the country; the Q&A will feature the director and Tom DeLonge, who produced the film. DeLonge is also in the band Angels & Airwaves, and they’ll be doing a live performance following the screening which will also be simulcast.
This is a make-it or break-it proposition for the film. Eubank gets one night only to prove that there’s an interest in his movie, and if the Fathom event does well, Love could screen elsewhere and in more conventional ways. I’m curious to see how this goes.
