From “Opening Weekend @ Atlanta Film Festival!” by Tenaya Cleveland
DAY 1 (Friday): While standing in line at the Landmark Midtown Art Cinema (home base for the fest), I met filmmaker David Zeiger, standing with his lovely daughter. He told me that his film SWEET OLD WORLD would be showing on Sunday evening and invited me to attend.
DAY 3 (Sunday): Remember David Zeiger, the filmmaker I met on Friday? Well, I showed up for the premiere of his dramatic feature, SWEET OLD WORLD, and he greeted me with a big hug! He then introduced me to the break-out star of the film, Jacques Colimon, and invited me to go with the group to Manuel’s after the screening. It was a treat to experience Mr. Zeiger’s foray into narrative feature filmmaking (after a number of successes as a documentary filmmaker) – and the young star of the film, Jacques Colimon, is a gem. I predict that both of these humble and talented artists will continue on to much more success.
