This week’s Sunday Video comes courtesy of Miami based Director, Aiden Dillard. Dillard’s recent feature film, Death Print, which premiered on October 8th at Colony Theater on Lincoln Road, Miami Beach, enjoyed a follow up screening yesterday, accompanied by a concert, at Cinema Paradisio in Fort Lauderdale. With so much to do yesterday (Justin long at 2020, Leonard Cohen at BankAtlantic Center, Death Print at Cinema Paradisio etc etc) and with everything respectively so far apart we thought we should hark to at least one of last nights ‘main events’. So rather than publish archived PBS footage of Cohen’s crooning or preempt our upcoming coverage of Long’s 2020 show we asked Aiden Dillard to submit this week’s pick.
