Down in the Mouth
A 19 1/2 minute independent film, produced by Montclair actress Cynthia Leigh Heim, had its first screening last night in New York. "Down in the Mouth," which is directed by Kirby Ward, has a bizarre but charmingly funny plot, and features a number of local actors: Sima Brason of Montclair, Barbara Folts of Bloomfield, Joseph LaFalce of Orange, Carl Pope of Montclair and Kyle SanGiovonni (Heim's husband), also of Montclair. The assistant director, Greg Daniels, is from Bloomfield. To see a short video of Heim describing the plot, click here or check out the film's website.
To help the filmmakers finish production and speed its way to Sundance, Teluride, Tribeca and other festivals, send a tax-deductible donation to Film/Videoarts, 25 E. 21st St., 3rd Floor, New York, NY 10010 and write "Down in the Mouth" in the memo portion of the check.
Local knitters may recognize both Heim and Brason. Brason own Nouveau Knits and Heim also teaches classes there.

O.K. my first reaction to that picture was that she was sitting on a giant, erect penis. The picture on the film's webpage isn't much more appealing.

Nope it's not just you! And she doesn't look very thrilled either - does she??!! Maybe part of the plot is she gets the shaft?!?!

Well, if you scroll over the photo, you'll see that the name of the image is "Uvula_1"...
She must be very tiny.
