Fenster’s “Pincus” World Premieres at the 2012 LAFF!

Thursday, June 7th, 2012 by

Don’t miss the world premiere of Pincus, a film by David Fenster starring David Nordstrom and Paul Fenster, at this year’s Los Angeles Film Festival!  The film will be featured in the Narrative Competition.

A little about the film:

Pincus Finster is in way over his head: trying to find a way to stall his father’s Parkinson’s, halfheartedly taking up yoga to meet girls, and letting his only friend Dietmar, an aging German illegal alien, get drunk and sleep in the homes they’re supposed to be remodeling. Pincus spends his time stoned and fumbling for some sort of spiritual truth.

Drawing from his own life, director and writer David Fenster has cast his family and friends (including his father, Paul Fenster, who has been living with Parkinson’s for 13 years) and woven documentary footage shot in and around his hometown of Miami, Florida into the story. Seamlessly combining naturalistic storytelling with documentary elements and hints of metaphysic mystery, Pincus is a soulfully handcrafted film that explores the gulf between cynicism and wonder with quiet revelation.

Doug Harvey of Artillery Magazine writes:

“Beautifully shot by Fenster, and minimally but exquisitely scored by John Wood, the deadpan episodic storyline thrums with a formalist glow that imbues Pincus’ low-key existential bewilderment with a sense of impending revelation—a promise fulfilled by one of the most satisfyingly anti-climactic denouements ever filmed, which manages to veer Fenster’s improvisational autobiographical naturalism toward a magic realism worthy of Vittorio de Sica’s ‘Miracle in Milan’.”

Pincus screens twice at the Los Angeles Film Festival:

Saturday, June 16th at 8:10pm – Regal Cinemas L.A. LIVE – Premiere

Thursday, June 21st at 7:40pm – Regal Cinemas L.A. LIVE – Public Screening
