Jordan Tetewsky ’16 Wins at Slamdance
Congratulations to Jordan Tetewsky ’16 (film) and his co-director Joshua Pikovsky for winning the Narrative Feature Grand Jury prize at the 28th Slamdance Film Festival.
Hannah Ha Ha (USA) is the pair’s first feature length film. Winners were announced February 4.
A statement from the jury called it “a beautiful film in the vein of the American working-class cinema from the ’70s and ’80s…chosen for its incredible lead actor and its sensitive portrayal of the quiet eradication of a community by powers beyond their control.”
The lead actor is Hannah Lee Thompson ’17 (studio composition), a musician based in Baltimore.
The Slamdance Film Festival takes place in Park City, UT at the same time as Sundance. Slamdance is an artist-led community that, according to its website, “has proven year after year that independent grassroots communities can take risks on bold talent and launch careers that change the industry.”
