Nakom has been selected for screening in the 25th Annual Pan African Film Festival (PAFF), February 9-20, 2017, which will take place in Los Angeles, California, USA at the all-digital Cinemark RAVE Cinemas 15. For more information, visit www.paff.org.
Nakom has also been nominated for the John Cassavetes Film Independent Spirit Award (winners announced February 25th live on the IFC channel). The John Cassavetes Award is given to the best feature made for under $500,000. For more information, visit www.filmindependent.com.
Nakom was most notably featured in the 2016 New Directors/New Films series at the Museum of Modern Art in March. Senior New York Times film critic Manhola Dargis writes “His [main character Iddrisu’s] struggle seems familiar, but it’s one that’s made memorable through the graceful visuals, gentle pacing and deep feeling that the directors T. W. Pittman and Kelly Daniela Norris bring to this story.” Variety’s Dennis Harvey notes “There’s an air of authenticity as well as a pleasingly laid-back yet substantive narrative engagement to this polished effort.” View entire review here.
Policeman is set to be released to DVD on 2.14.17.
Yaron, an elite special operations squad leader, is the spiritual leader and alpha male among his peers, a small, highly trained team that is part of the Israeli Defense Ministry’s Anti-Terrorism unit. Like a band of brothers, these men work, play, laugh, and cry together. They are true patriots; they love their country, their families, and each other. Yaron is ambitious and energetic, but a cyclone of emotions consumes him. His wife is expecting their first child, and the failing health of a team member weighs on his soul as the men contend with an unforgivable accident resulting from a miscalculation during a recent rescue mission, and the price that must be paid as a result of this. Starring: Yiftach Klein, Michael Mushonov, Michael Aloni, Meital Berdah. View Policeman web page.
