Last Monday night, directors Michael Palmieri and Donal Mosher presented their film OCTOBER COUNTRY at STF to a packed house. They were returning from the Woodstock Film Festival and en route to AmFest in Moscow the very next day. We were glad they could squeeze us in! The hauntingly beautiful film explores a year with Donal’s family as they struggle with teen pregnancy, foster care, memories of war and child abuse. After the screening audiences were treated to a very personal Q&A where Michael and Donal shared what it was like to shoot this film and screen it for Donal’s family. You can read more about the film at its website: http://www.octobercountryfilm.com.

As per the usual drill, we went to our local watering hole 99 Below where we all kept discussing the film over much-needed drinks.
