IT'S KIND OF A FUNNY STORY
The first feature from the filmmaking team of RYAN FLECK & ANNA
BODEN (Writer/Directors) was Half Nelson, which world-premiered
at the Sundance Film Festival before going on to win numerous prizes.
Half Nelson lead actors Ryan Gosling and Shareeka Epps both earned
Independent Spirit Awards for their portrayals, and Mr. Gosling also
received Screen Actors Guild and Academy Award nominations. Half
Nelson was honored with Gotham Awards for Breakthrough Director,
Breakthrough Actor (for Ms. Epps), and Best Film.
Ms. Boden and Mr. Fleck wrote and directed Sugar, which worldpremiered
at the Sundance Film Festival. Sugar would later receive a
Gotham Award nomination for Best Ensemble Cast; an Independent
Spirit Award nomination for Best Screenplay; and an American Film
Institute (AFI) Award as one of the year's 10 most outstanding
achievements in film.
Mr. Fleck and Ms. Boden have also collaborated on several
documentaries, including Have You Seen This Man? (2002) and Young
Rebels (2005); and on the short film Gowanus, Brooklyn (2004), which
was a forerunner to Half Nelson.
