Bold Native is a fiction feature film. Charlie Cranehill, an animal liberator wanted by the United States government for domestic terrorism, emerges from the underground to coordinate a nationwide action as his estranged CEO father tries to find him before the FBI does. Bold Native takes on the issue of modern animal use and exploitation from several angles within the context of a road movie adventure story.
I love this movie! And I interviewed the filmmakers and star of the film over on Girlie Girl Army. Give it a read?
Oh, and if you're in NYC, it will be premiering there next Monday, July 26th at 7 and 9 p.m. at Anthology Film Archives at 32 Second Avenue. Russell Simmons is hosting the earlier one and Sufijan Stevens, whose music appears in the film is rumored to attend as well. Advance tickets available online here: http://boldnative.com/screeningsvod/

Around Bleecker and MacDougal streets, the Greenwich Village Folk scene in the sixties produced some of the best american musicians ever. Among them, one was a mystery : Fred Neil. Admired by Bob Dylan and Tim Hardin, the guy was secretive, almost elusive. Nowadays he is mostly known like a name, a shadow behind a legendary song he composed, the "Everybody's Talkin'" that Harry Nilsson sang in Midnight Cowboy (1969). But once you hear his own voice, a dark resonating baritone, well, you'll never forget it.
Maybe it was the toxic fame raising in the Village or the poisonous hard drugs he tried but Fred Neil disappeared of the music world for good in 1971 : he retreated in Florida, Coconut Grove to dedicate the rest of his life to his passion, the dolphins. There he founded the Dolphin Research Project to stopping the capture, trafficking and exploitation of these amazing creatures. Fred Neil never recorded anything else till his death in 2001. But he left us some masterpieces, for example one of the most haunting song ever, "The Dolphins"…

Dogs played an important role in Wallace's life; he was very close to his two dogs, Bella and Warner, had spoken of opening a dog shelter, and according to Jonathan Franzen "had a predilection for dogs who'd been abused, and [were] unlikely to find other owners who were going to be patient enough for them."
