Interpol Stars Turns Filmmaker
Carlos Dengler produced, stars in, and composed the original score for MY FRIENDS TOLD ME ABOUT YOU. MFTMAY is co-produced by Todd Eckert, producer of award-winning Joy Division biopic, Control, which won the 2007 Cannes award for Best European Feature.
Dengler writes: "Making MY FRIENDS TOLD ME ABOUT YOU was a chance to explore the narrative potential of sound and spectacle. The idea was to achieve the expression of film as a composition, a tone poem of carefully selected cinematic effects and gestures."
MY FRIENDS TOLD ME ABOUT YOU is proud to announce our debut collaboration with Anonymous Gallery in New York City. MFTMAY will premiere publicly as a video installation at Anonymous from April 17th through May 5th. Press are invited to an early screening on Thursday April 16th before the installation opens to the public. A full schedule of events surrounding the premiere will be announced in the upcoming weeks.
MY FRIENDS TOLD ME ABOUT YOU is a main feature in McSweeney's Wholphin DVD Volume #8, due Spring 2009. Wholphin is a quarterly DVD magazine of short films published by McSweeney's. Each issue is lovingly-encoded with two and a half hours of meticulously-selected, differently-lengthed films you can't find anywhere else. From rare Spike Jonze documentaries to the early work of Alexander Payne, if it's good, rare, new, or unseen, it's on Wholphin.
