This is GREAT news for New Yorkers! Both films will be making their New York premieres; in fact, I believe La Pirogue will be making its USA premiere.

Naturally, I've been watching the page closely, waiting for whatever the message was going to be. Obviously, I figured it would be related to Luther in some way, but wasn't entirely sure what.
