Antonio Campos' Afterschool opened yesterday at the Cinema Village. Its been a long time coming for the film, which premiered in Cannes last year and screened locally at the forty-sixth New York Film Festival last fall. Nominated for a pair of Gotham Awards, this most astounding of American Independent debuts was finally picked up by IFC Films after a lengthy, rather passive-aggressive flirtation between the corporate indie giant and the film's duo of young producers, who surely didn't make their negative costs back on the IFC theatrical agreement. Over at Hammer to Nail I've written a review of the film that was first posted during the run up to last year's Gothams. Here too is an interview I conducted with Campos last fall.
