NarrowsburgSee All Screenings
After a successful first year, festival co-founders Jocelyn Plante and Richard Castellano announced that they would produce a locally made film using residents in supporting roles and, eventually, as a source of funding. Excited locals and investors attended the second festival expecting to see a rough cut of the feature-length film, Four Deadly Reasons, but what they got was 15 minutes of poorly-made footage. Even worse, all of the local actors apparently ended up on the cutting room floor. By the time the screening was over, Plante and Castellano had already skipped town. Ten years in the making, Narrowsburg catches up with the couple behind the debacle and residents of the town who have had to come to terms with falling victim to a scam through the allure and romance of filmmaking.
Martha Shane is an Emmy Award-winning director and producer of documentaries. In 2019, she premiered her film Narrowsburg at the Camden International Film Festival, followed by an NYC premiere at DOC NYC. Vox listed the film as one of “16 great documentaries from 2019.” Shane was included in DOC NYC’s second annual “40 under 40” list of emerging talent in the documentary world.
