Details for the As You Are Albany premiere

as you are sundance still

A still from As You Are, which was filmed at many locations around the Capital Region.

Here are the details for that special Albany premiere screening of As You Are, the Sundance prize-winning film that shot in this area in 2015...

The special screening will be at The Spectrum March 3 at 7 pm. Tickets for the event are $20 and only available online, not through the normal Spectrum ticketing system. The event is sponsored by Film Albany and Upstate Independents, and all the proceeds will benefit the YouthFX program in Albany.

The event will feature a post-screening Q&A with the Albany natives behind the film: writer/director Miles Joris-Peyrafitte, writer Madison Harrison, and producer/colorist Joseph Mastantuono.

Joris-Peyrafitte and Harrison were part of a program at the Albany Free School that grew into YouthFX, and as the director told us recently, it played a big role in setting them on this path:

"[W]e never saw movies really being shot in Albany at that time. It felt really intangible. So knowing that Bhawin [Suchak] and Jeff [Root] were making a movie -- that they could just make a movie -- was hugely important to us. Because we felt like we could, too.

And on what it will be like to show As You Are at the Spectrum:

"Everyone who's a filmmaker has that place or that person that's seminal to them in becoming a filmmaker. And that place is definitely that. To be able to bring it there and to share it in that space, and to have everyone communicate with the film in the way that I grew up communicating with film, it's the best."

This special premiere screening will sell out. So if you'd like to attend, grab tickets earlier rather than later.

And if you don't attend the premiere, you'll be able to catch As You Are as part of a regular theatrical run at The Spectrum starting March 3.

... The theft itself of this important Native American artifact is an important part of its story. It's really a miracle that almost 70 years later that the Cornplanter pipe tomahawk ended up back at the State Museum, instead of remaining in someone's secret, private collection acquired illicitly, or even worse, not cared for professionally and therefore damaged, destroyed, or lost forever.
