Donald Cried (Kris Avedisian | USA | 85 min.)
Peter Latang (Jesse Wakeman) left working class Warwick, Rhode Island to reinvent himself as a slick, Wall Street mover and shaker. Fifteen years later, when he's forced to return home to bury his Grandmother he loses his wallet on the trip. Stranded, the only person he can think of to help him out is his next door neighbor and former childhood friend Donald Treebeck (Kris Avedisian). Donald hasn't changed a bit, and what starts as a simple favor turns into a long van ride into their past.
Presented in partnership with The Orchard
Director Kris Avedisian was born in Cranston Rhode Island, where he still resides. In the early 2000's he studied film in San Francisco where he met Jesse Wakeman and Kyle Espeleta. They collaborated on their first project Three Tears a Prince and a Forest. In 2013, their short Donald Cried won best narrative short at The Independent Film Festival Boston and later went on to receive special mention at the Slamdance Film Festival. The feature version of Donald Cried was shot in the winter of 2015 and was selected for IFP labs.
