Filmmaker Rising: Jim Mickle on Adaptation, Remakes & Don Johnson

The Hollywood Reporter wrote about Mickle at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival: “A year after delivering one of the genuine surprises of Sundance 2013 with his compellingly nuanced cannibal family feast We Are What We Are, Jim Mickle returns to breathe vigorous new life into the pulpy neo-noir, Cold in July…. [He] continues to show that he's among the most distinctive genre filmmakers on the indie scene with this cracked but flavorful thriller.” If scheduling permits, Mickle will join us for this trio of films, which includes the original Mexican version of We Are What We Are, Somos lo que hay, which Mickle adapted to an Upstate New York location. Cosponsored with IIFFF.
