|New Works, New Studio Partner|
OVID is thrilled to present the exclusive and streaming premieres of three films from their new studio partner Sentient.Art.Film including Maya Newell’s documentary In My Blood It Runs—a “quietly masterful portrait of growing up indigenous” proclaims The Guardian—, Roddy Bogawa’s documentary Some Divine Wind—”like a mixture of Chris Marker, Robert Towne, and James Benning,” says Image Forum—, and in time for Pride month, Jessie Jeffrey Dunn Rovinelli’s feature So Pretty about queer and trans youth in New York City.
|Two Films by Aaron Katz|
Aaron Katz was born in Portland, OR. After graduating from film school, Katz and two of his college roommates drove to Portland in order to make Dance Party, USA, his first feature. It premiered at SXSW 2006. Subsequently it played at several other festivals and had a critically-acclaimed run in New York. Quiet City is his second feature. His most recent film, Gemini, starring Lola Kirke, Zoë Kravitz and John Cho, was released in 2017.
Now on OVID: Dance Party, USA, which the New York Times calls “a remarkably delicate construction” and Quiet City, nominated for the John Cassavetes Award at Film Independent’s Spirit Awards.
