Making the world safe for filmgoers since 2002.
The world premiere of writer/director Harry Greenberger’s second feature film, FARAWAY EYES, happened on March 7, 2019, just before the festival in which it was booked postponed its second week until the following summer. Thank you COVID-19.
Fortunately, it allowed audiences to experience this sweetly funny and astutely observed consideration about the meaning of life. It’s hero, Michael (Andrew Karl) is a struggling New York actor who is hit by a truck after a bad break-up. The biggest shock, though, is finding out that in order to move on, he has to find his soul mate among the other dead still hanging around on this plane of existence. When I spoke to Greenberger by phone, we talked about the philosophical implications, his own journey that inspired the story, and, in the clip above, how he brought a city of the living and the dead to the screen.
