Park Pictures Recognised at Sundance 2014


Production company's Features section produces two films chosen for festival Dramatic Competition

Park Pictures Recognised at Sundance 2014

Park Pictures Features’ latest narrative feature film offerings, the John Slattery-directed drama God’s Pocket and the dramatic comedy Infinitely Polar Bear (written and directed by Maya Forbes) have been chosen for the 2014 Sundance Film Festival’s prestigious Dramatic Competition. With Park Pictures Features’ debut film Robot & Frank a Sundance award winner in 2012, this marks the Manhattan studio’s second and third film at the festival.

God’s Pocket, with screenplay by John Slattery and Alex Metcalf, stars Philip Seymour Hoffman, Richard Jenkins, Christina Hendricks and John Turturro. The film follows Mickey (Hoffman), whose stepson Leon is killed in a construction “accident.” Mickey tries to bury the bad news with the body, but when the boy’s mother demands the truth, Mickey finds himself stuck between a body he can’t bury, a wife he can’t please, and a debt he can’t pay.

The film was produced by Park Pictures Features in association with Hoffman's Cooper’s Town and Slattery’s Shoestring Pictures. Producers are Sam Bisbee, Jackie Kelman Bisbee, Lance Acord, John Slattery, Philip Seymour Hoffman and Emily Ziff.

Infinitely Polar Bear marks the directing debut for Forbes, recently named one of Variety’s Top 10 Directors to Watch. The film stars Mark Ruffalo and Zoe Saldana. Set in the 70's, the story follows a manic-depressive mess of a father, who tries to win back his wife by attempting to take full responsibility of their two spirited daughters, who don’t make the overwhelming task any easier. Paper Street Films co-produced the film with Park Pictures Features in association with Bad Robot. The film was produced by Wally Wolodarsky, Benji Kohn, Bingo Gubelmann, Sam Bisbee and Galt Niederhoffer and it's executive producers include JJ Abrams, Brian Burk, Austin Stark and Park's Jackie Kelman Bisbee.
