With the Tribeca Film Festival kicking off today, it’s high time we dove into our coverage of New York City’s hometown fest. To that end, it’s our great pleasure to debut the first poster for writer-director-producer Jenny Deller’s Future Weather, the multi-hyphenate’s first feature, which will have its world premiere next week.
The film centers on young Lauduree, a lonely teenager who has a serious interest in environmentalism and nature and who is already worried about the effects of environmental disaster on the world at large. But it’s Lauduree’s world that is about to be turned on its head, when her shiftless single mom leaves her for sunshiny California. Abandoned, alone, and terrified, Lauduree comes under the care of her grandmother, who comes with her own pack of issues that shouldn’t serve much comfort to the already fragile Lauduree. The film stars a wonderful cast of known and new talent, including Lili Taylor, Amy Madigan, Perla Haney-Jardine, and Marin Ireland.
The film has already racked up the accolades, having received a grant from Women in Film in 2011 for post-production, three grants from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, and the 2009 Showtime Tony Cox Award for Screenwriting from the Nantucket Film Festival in 2009. You can learn more about the project and watch a few clips from the film at their Kickstarter page.
Check out the full poster for Future Weather after the break, along with a batch of new stills from the film.
Future Weather will have its World Premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival on Sunday, April 29 at 5:00PM. Get more info HERE.
Many thanks to Jenny Deller for sending over this artwork.
