Cortez

WITH GUEST DIRECTOR CHERYL NICHOLS AND SPECIAL GUEST ACTOR JUDITH IVEY

Run Time: 100 mins USA Language: English

Synopsis

After a canceled tour, ailing, semi-famous musician Jesse seeks out Anne, an old flame in Cortez, a tiny mountain town in New Mexico. When he knocks on her door, a ten-year old boy, bearing a strong resemblance to Jesse, answers. Inspired by the great American relationship dramas of the 1970’s and 1980’s, Cheryl Nichols’s evocative film is a classic story of love and redemption. It’s a story about how the life we plan is never as rewarding as the life that surprises us.

Writer-director Cheryl Nichols turns in one of the most exciting feature film debuts of the year, co-written with her fellow leading actor, Arron Shiver. In their crowd-funding campaign, they wrote: “We want to make films that are connected, honest, sincere; that explore our humanity, however ugly or dirty.” Legendary stage, screen, and television actress Judith Ivey jumped aboard this project, which heralds the arrival of a major new directing talent. U.S. Premiere!
