Penned and directed by Max Walker-Silverman, “A Love Song” unfolds at an idyllic campsite in the Colorado Mountains, where a woman, Faye, spends her days listening to birds, catching crawfish from the lake, and scanning her old radio for a station. But most of all, Faye is waiting for Lito, a childhood sweetheart she hasn’t seen in decades. “A Love Song” is lushly lensed by Alfonso Herrera Salcedo (“El hoyo en la cerca”).
“I consider ‘A Love Song’ a piece of my home, and so it’s a particular pleasure to partner with Films Boutique to share it with the world. As an admirer of so many of the films they have represented, it’s an honor,” said Walker-Silverman.
Gabor Greiner, Films Boutique COO, said the film is “pure magic: a simple, deep and fully absorbing love story between two warm-hearted characters in a breathtakingly beautiful wilderness – a modern western, surprising and musical, which will move audiences worldwide.”
Produced by Jesse Hope, Dan Janvey and Walker-Silverman, the film will bow in the Next section at Sundance. Executive producers are Jan McAdoo, Jack McAdoo and Bill Way. Co-producers are Sakurako Fisher, Robina Riccitiello, Maggie Ambrose and Josh Peters.
Films Boutique’s current slate also includes Pawo Choyning Dorji’s “Lunana, A Yak in The Classroom,” Bhutan’s Oscar entry which has been shortlisted for the international feature film race.
