With the Los Angeles Film Festival
kicking off this Thursday, we've got a peek at a film that will be hoping to earn some attention from those making their way to the fest. Today, we have an exclusive clip from the new film "Pincus
" directed by David Fenster
, which is having its world premiere at LAFF. The film concerns a man dealing with life while also taking care of his Parkinson's disease-stricken father. The film stars David Nordstrom
(who starred in SXSW '12 film "Leave Me Like You Found Me
") and as his father, director Fenster's own father, Paul Fenster
, who has lived with Parkinson's for 13 years.
It looks to be an atmospheric, lyrical piece, with a touch of quirky humor; an exploration of the human condition with a focus on naturalistic cinematography. The film's official synopsis says "seamlessly combining naturalistic storytelling with documentary elements and hints of metaphysic mystery, PINCUS is a soulfully handcrafted film that explores the gulf between cynicism and wonder with quiet revelation." It's a true auteur piece, as it is written, directed, shot and edited by Fenster. His previous film, "Trona
," also starred Nordstrom as a businessman searching for meaning in a desolate desert junkyard and it's currently available for streaming on Amazon
We've got an exclusive clip from "Pincus," which you can watch below before checking out the trailer here
. The film will premiere Saturday, June 16th 8:10pm at Regal Cinemas L.A. LIVE 13.
