This is a rare and limited opportunity to see an award-winning, independent, low-budget, banned, first-feature film that has been lost and not seen for almost 40 years. Meet the filmmaker/director and hear first-hand about what it's like to make a feature with virtually no money, on location and under hostile conditions. This, way-ahead-of-its-time film was made by fledging filmmaker Anthony Lover, when he was in his 20’s. One of the many fine actors in the film is Oscar-nominated James Woods, in his first leading role. Help us re-introduce the film into existence!
Reviewers: Roger Ebert, John Simon, Frank Rich, Daphne Davis, Playboy, CBS, After Dark:
“Distance” is the best low-budget movie to come along in a long time. --- Brilliant and touching, original and unconventional. ---A searing exploration of the end of a marriage. --- “Distance” the most liberated, original, and un-cliched movie of the year. “Distance” is one of the year’s surprises and it’s a gem. --- Deserving of sustained applause. --- A remarkable achievement by Anthony Lover. --- “Distance” brims with genuine feeling, so provocative, I hope audiences find there way to seeing it. --- “Distance” has power, a fine group of actors, revelatory direction, unique filmic grace, a moving film. - Variety
