Program Notes

Director/writer/star Kris Avedisian’s Donald Cried, a hit at MdFF 2016, expertly deconstructs the “man-child” with its darkly funny story about former childhood best friends who reconnect decades later in their working-class Rhode Island neighborhood. “A painful nostalgia trip that’s also terribly funny. It’s set to unveil a new comedic talent both behind the camera and in front of it. Donald Cried suggests the shadings of a psychological thriller stuffed into the mold of a boisterous R-rated comedy.”- Eric Kohn, Indiewire Full week-long run!
