Edith+Eddie premieres to sold-out, enraptured crowds at True/False

Kartemquin's newest release, Edith+Eddie and the latest film by director Steve JamesAbacus: Small Enough to Jail both enjoyed highly anticipated and enthusiastically-met runs at the True/False Film Fest, running March 2nd-March 5th.

Edith+Eddie world premiered to a sold-out crowd on March 2nd, with Julia Reichert––often hailed as the godmother of the American independent film movement––describing the film as, "One of the most beautiful and quietly furious films I have ever seen."

Director Laura Checkoway was in attendance for all three sold-out screenings. The short doc, following the unusual and idyllic love story of Edith Hill and Eddie Harrison, America's oldest interracial newlyweds, struck chords with audience members and reviewers alike.
