Bayou Black (Jonas Carpignano | New York, NY | 12 min.)

(NY Premiere)
Bayou Black takes us through a day in the life of Willy Jones, a single father in southern Louisiana struggling to make a living. He traps Nutria, local swamp rats, to try to make ends meet. But, when a local land-owner suspects Willy of poaching on his property, desperation, need and an unwanted confrontation drive him to take drastic measures.

Jonas Carpignano is an Italo-American filmmaker based out of New York City and Rome. He spent years working on feature films in both Italy and the U.S and in the process spent years working for world renowned director Spike Lee. Since enrolling in NYU's graduate film program in 2009 Jonas has made several short films including: Resurrection Man, starring Tony Award winning actor Roger Robinson, which had its premier at the 2010 Woodstock film Festival and Bayou Black, starring Michael K Williams (The Wire). Jonas is currently finishing his third short film A Chjana, which follows two African immigrants in the midst of the most significant race riot in Italian history, and is working on a feature script of the same title.
