The MNFF is pleased to announce its Opening Night film will be “Take My Nose … Please!” from first time documentary filmmaker Joan Kron.
“The buzz around this year’s lineup is already building,” noted Lloyd Komesar, MNFF producer. “Our exceptional contributions from women filmmakers are clearly one of the main reasons that people are excited. Beginning with Joan Kron’s wonderful Opening Night film, we have stocked our lineup with thoroughly entertaining films.”
As its title might suggest, this year’s Opening Night film will be one to remember. Joan Kron has crafted a hilarious, biting documentary that looks at the role comedy has played in exposing the pressures on women to be attractive – and society’s subsequent relationship with plastic surgery.
The Opening Night film will begin at Town Hall Theater at 7pm on Thursday, August 24, with an After Party at the Swift House Inn to follow.
