Both films were produced in Ohio.
“Rebel // Rebel” tells the story of fallen movie star Jake Hughes, who judges mischief and battles addiction while filming a new movie in Cincinnati, Ohio.
“Furmansky’s Funeral” is about an outcast Ohio family who gathers after their recently deceased father’s funeral. “Bitter resentment and family rivalry boil to the surface on a long summer night,” according to CUT Cinema.
Both films are directed by Johnny Catalano, who will answer audience questions, along with other members of the production crew.
The Ohio native grew up with a love of cinema, especially Westerns.
The director said he “strives to make films that explore raw humanity” with a focus on stories set in the US Midwest.
Of the American Midwest, he said, “I strive to clearly portray my region of the world.” “I want to look at humanity and my characters objectively. Not making judgments, (but) instead showing things for what they are. And all the comedy that is in that reality.”
“This film owes much of its style to the great work of American actor/director John Cassavetes,” Catalano said in a director’s statement. “Together with Robert Altman’s dreamy films of the ’70s.”
