Alum Film Little Men in Theaters Today

Little Men, edited by TEC teacher and alum Mollie Goldstein and TEC teacher Affonso Gonçalves, is now playing in New York. TEC alums Brian Young and Katrina Pastore served as assistant editors on the film, which is on the New York Times Critics' Pick List. A.O. Scott writes:

When parents are around, “Little Men” feels like a modest, precise drama of urban life, but when it follows Tony and Jake, absorbing the loose rhythms of their companionship, the film becomes something richer and harder to classify. It’s a boys adventure story edged with unspoken risks, and the young actors take the kind of chances that their more careful and disciplined elders have been trained to avoid.

Theatrical Release of Class Film Five Nights in Maine

January 2015 class project, Five Nights in Maine, will be released in select cities nationwide on August 5th! Steven Rea, from The Philadelphia Inquirer, said of the film, "Maris Curran's finely crafted, hushed feature debut, is close-up and aching, leavened with a gentle wit and anchored by Oyelowo's inside-out performance."

TEC alum Rob Dulin edited the film and alum Marina Katz was the assistant editor.
