Class Films Distributed on DVD

Two Edit Center class projects are being released on DVD this fall. Manhattan, Kansas, the project of the May/June 2005 six-week course, is coming out on November 18, and Swing State, the project of November/December 2006 and January/February 2007 classes, was released on November 4. Manhattan, Kansas was edited by TEC alum Cindy Lee and is being distributed by Carnivalesque Films. The Film Society of Lincoln Center called the movie "simple and direct" and "emotionally blunt and affecting -- Manhattan, Kansas acknowledges that love abides, even when forgiveness is not always easy or possible." Swing State, which the Syracuse New Times called "fresh and timely," was edited by TEC alum Erica Freed and is being distributed by Morningstar Entertainment.
