Purchase Filmmakers Screen Movie at Slamdance Film Festival

Date Released: 1/23/2008

At Night, a film by Philip Aceto and Max Landes, graduates of the Purchase film program, has been screened at the Slamdance Film Festival where it was well received by critics and festival organizers.

Slamdance Programmer and Festival Art Director Paul Sbrizzi said “Max Landes and Philip Aceto bring an impressive command of style, pacing and color to this cool, mysterious elliptical piece.…”

Filmmaker magazine blogger Brandon Harris described their work this way: “Nearly without words, built for maximum glide, a marvel of precise camera placement, tracking shots and sound design, the film is starkly beautiful and deeply unsettling.”

The short film explores television, subjectivity, and their impact on the sexual relationships between men and women.
