George Washington: American Independent

George Washington: American Independent

Director David Gordon Green begun an eclectic career with his gorgeous 2000 feature debut, George Washington, screening as part of our American Independent series.

Within North Carolina is an economically depressed town, seemingly occupied by kids attempting to take leisure in the town's remains. Twelve-year-old Nasia (Candace Evanofski) takes a liking to a boy named George Richardson (Donald Holden), who struggles with his skull having never hardened since birth. When accidental tragedy strikes, George is given the title of town hero, which becomes the latest in his series of reckonings.

Widely praised by critics since its premiere at the 2000 Berlinale Film Festival, George Washington is a potently atmospheric and deeply sensitive portrait of rural life.
