Lord Byron (& SPECIAL SCREENINGS)
NYC Theatrical Premiere, One Week Only!
"[CRITICS' PICK!] Boggles the mind but teases the eye! Byron is, in short, the highly unlikely focal point of a highly unusual film, an experimental surrender to the artistic unknown... And when Byron wonders 'Where does the time go?' you may be surprised to find that you are wondering exactly the same."
- Jeannette Catsoulis, THE NEW YORK TIMES (May 5, 2011)
"Artisanal and unpretentious... The film has a makeshift charm and a thrift-store sensibility that can be consistently disarming."
- Diego Costa, SLANT MAGAZINE (May 5, 2011)
"The film takes on the dreamy air of a vision. Or maybe it's just high."
- Michael Atkinson, THE VILLAGE VOICE (May 4, 2011)
"A spicy Jambalaya mix of odd sorts... hilarious and poignant... The characters are the film's main delight, starting with Byron, a rotund lummox of a man but whose generous disposition always stirs our interest."
- Duane Byrge, THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER
"A provocative collage! Built around unreliable narrators, delusional Southerners, incongruous music and outright lies... Godshall shows a deep intelligence."
- John Anderson, VARIETY

One of the profound hidden treasures of Sundance 2011, LORD BYRON is a kaleidoscopic portrait of the strange and lonely world inhabited by its title character. Writer-director Zack Godshall's deadpan tragicomedy makes its New York premiere with a week-long theatrical run, May 6 - 12.
Louisiana philosopher and lumbering ox Byron (newcomer Paul Batiste) is a romantic who seeks spiritual fulfillment by any means possible. Like a bayou Don Juan, he loves all of his girlfriends the same way: totally and completely. But recently, he's been confused and torn about his desires, lost in some heavy thoughts, and growing restless in middle age. When a TV preacher suggests he retreat from the chaos of the world, Byron escapes his town to start an enlightened journey of the fantastic kind, along the way meeting a cast of bizarrely funny folks.
91 minutes. In English. Presented in Blu-ray. Unrated. ZACK GODSHALL IN PERSON, May 6 - 7!
Friday, May 6 @ 10pm: LOW AND BEHOLD
reRun will also screen Zack Godshall's 2007 Sundance fave, praised by Hammer to Nail as "one of the more achingly honest depictions of post-Katrina life in New Orleans." Based on real events, the film tells the story of a young insurance claims adjuster (Barlow Jacobs) who risks his job to help a local man (Eddie Rouse) find his lost dog. As the unlikely pair traverses the city, it comes to light that some damage is immeasurable. Filmed on location in New Orleans only months after Hurricane Katrina, Zack Godshall's feature debut blurs the line between reality and fiction, creating a uniquely cinematic mosaic of images, faces, and voices.
89 minutes. In English. Unrated. BARLOW JACOBS + ZACK GODSHALL IN PERSON!
Saturday, May 7 @ 7pm: GOD'S ARCHITECTS
Zack Godshall's beloved 2010 documentary tells the stories of five men whose giant, enigmatic creations (castles, towers, lighthouses and mountains) have been built from divine inspiration. With neither funding nor blueprints, these builders do everything they can to bring their spiritual visions into being.
82 minutes. In English. Unrated. ZACK GODSHALL IN PERSON!
