So excited to read that my buddy Jenni Olson's The Royal Road has been selected to debut at Sundance this year!
The film is described as follows:
“A feature-length cinematic essay in defense of remembering, Jenni Olson's The Royal Road offers up a primer on the Spanish colonization of California and the Mexican American War alongside intimate reflections on nostalgia, the pursuit of unavailable women, butch identity and Alfred Hitchcock's Vertigo—all against a contemplative backdrop of 16mm urban California landscapes, and featuring a voiceover cameo by Tony Kushner.”
Sounds less like Kenneth Anger and more like Kenneth Happiness. I'm so proud that I was a donor to Jenni's Kickstarter.
