One of my favorite films from the Athena Film Festival which I produced last February was The Topp Twins. As I say to everyone on paper this film sounds too way out to work. It's about lesbian twins sister activist singers from New Zealand. But this film rocks. The sisters, Lynda and Jools, are beloved in New Zealand from the farmers to the city folk. Their shows which are a combination of vaudeville act and political rally with some great singing and yodeling thrown in.
The film directed by Leanne Pooley gets a NY release next weekend and I am so excited to do a Q and A with Jools and Lynda after the 7pm show. So put this in your calendar now and come down to the Cinema Village Please come down next Friday. I promise you will LOVE this film.
