NEXT STOP, WONDERLAND
BRAD ANDERSON co-wrote, directed and edited NEXT STOP WONDERLAND,
an unconventional romantic comedy about dating and destiny set
in his once-native Boston. Using a raw, intimate and improvisational
style that is becoming his trademark, Anderson explores the sorrows,
mysteries and elations of modern relationships.
NEXT STOP WONDERLAND is Anderson's second feature film. His premiere
feature, "The Darien Gap," screened in competition at
the 1996 Sundance Film Festival, garnered the Best Director Award
at the Santa Barbara Film Festival, won Best Narrative at the
Florida Film Festival and was also seen at the Philadelphia, Cinequest,
South by Southwest, Hawaii, Montreal and Brisbane Film Festivals,
among others. "The Darien Gap" has also been seen on
cable television on the Independent Film Channel, the Sundance
Channel and Showtime.
In 1997, Anderson was named one of "Variety's Ten Leading
New Independent Directors to Watch."
Brad Anderson grew up in New England and studied ethnographic
film and Russian at Bowdoin College, before going off to the London
International Film School to study motion picture production.
He then spent eight years in Boston, directing and editing documentaries
and short features on everything from schlock horror to Zen Buddhism.
During that time, he also worked as an editor on Haile Gerima's
acclaimed film "Sankofa" and on the PBS series "The
Americas" and "Making Sense of the 60s."
Anderson has taught filmmaking at Tufts, Boston University, Emerson
College, Boston Film/Video Foundation, and a popular course called
"guerrilla filmmaking" at the Cambridge Center for Adult
Education. His shorts and documentaries have screened at many
New England venues including the New England Film Festival and
the Harvard Film Archive.
Anderson recently moved to New York and is currently at work on
his next project, a horror/mystery entitled "Lullaby."
