Closure, New York Premiere
The Award-Winning film CLOSURE is having its New York Premiere at the Manhattan Film Festival on May 4 at 5:00pm at Cinema Village (22 E. 12th St. NY). Tickets are available at https://www.manhattanff.com/films-1/2019/4/30/closure. The film, which has won Best Feature at DC International Film Festival & The Valley Film Festival, Best Actress at both Marbella International Film Festival & Austin Indie Fest, Audience Choice Award at Austin Indie Fest, and Best Screenplay at Austin Indie Fest, traces its roots back to New York City.
5100 Films, 103rd Street Productions, Kampfire Films, and Red Spear Productions present writer/director Alex Goldberg’s dark comedy, CLOSURE. Nina (Just Add Magic’s Catia Ojeda) travels to Los Angeles, following her mother's funeral, to find her sister who has been missing for months. There she encounters a bizarre mix of Angelenos, including Cynthia Addai-Robinson (Power, Shooter and The Accountant) and Dee Wallace (E.T.), uncovering the secret of her sister's disappearance.
The film also stars Milena Govich, John Sloan, Tom Choi, and Marcelo Tubert. CLOSURE is produced by Beau J. Genot and Katie Rosin with executive producers Robert Abramoff, Roger Cooper and Adam Weinstock. CLOSURE had its world premiere in the 2018 D.C. Independent Film Festival, winning Best Feature. It has since won five other awards at various festivals around the world.
"Closure is thrilled to have our New York Premiere in Manhattan,” said Goldberg. “Catia Ojeda and I had our first artistic collaboration in a 40-seat theater in Midtown for a play that ran for four performances. Since then we have worked side by side on a number of theater and film projects, and have collaborated on one marriage and two kids. It all began for us in New York and I am thrilled to bring this movie to the city where I lived for two decades.”
Shot in only 12 days of principal photography in Los Angeles, California, for an ultra low-budget, CLOSURE is a testament to the quality and tenacity of independent film and filmmakers. In addition, writer/director Alex Goldberg was seeking a new opportunity to collaborate with his wife, lead actress Catia Ojeda.
