"Body and Soul" has been picked up for distribution by Seventh Art Releasing. Although Seventh Art specializes in films of Jewish interest, they have other films on their roster as well, including a short that was nominated for an Oscar in 2017. We're excited about this development and expect "Body and Soul" to make more of an impact than any of our previous films, in part because of their support and knowledge about distribution. Their executive director, Udy Epstein, described "Body and Soul" as "a first class film" in a recent email.
Director Robert Philipson was interviewed about "Body and Soul" for the "Inside Art" program of San Diego's jazz radio station KSDS. The interview took place at 7:00 p.m. (PST) on Sunday, February 12 and lasted 30 minutes. Click HERE to listen to it now.
"Body and Soul: An American Bridge" is the winner of Best Music Documentarycategory of the recently completed 2016 edition of the San Francisco Black Film Festival. Thanks to Kali O'Ray and the festival organizers for this honor.
