Marc’s third narrative feature How He Fell In Love premiered at the 2015 Los Angeles Film Festival and will be theatrically released in July 2016. The LA Daily News says, “How He Fell In Love is truly adult moviemaking that respects both carnality and commitment. It’s the type of mature drama that’s rarely seen in American movies.”
My Friend Dahmer is set to be his next feature to direct. His screenplay, which is based on the award-winning graphic novel of the same name, landed on the prestigious 2014 Black List.
His previous film Harvest is a New York Times Critics’ Pick. Stephen Holden writes, “meticulously written and exquisitely acted … Harvest shows the truth of life as it is lived.” It stars Oscar nominees Robert Loggia and Barbara Barrie, Jack Carpenter, Arye Gross, and Tony Winner Victoria Clark, with original music by Grammy & Tony Winner Duncan Sheik. Harvest won Best American Independent Film at the 2010 Cleveland International Film Festival, among other honors. It was theatrically released in 2011, aired on Showtime & is available on all major digital platforms.
Marc’s debut feature Approaching Union Square was broadcast on Sundance Channel. Variety wrote, “thought-provoking… touches with skilled insight,” and “reps a fine calling card for a clear, even voice.” Following its International Premiere at the Montreal World Film Festival, The Montreal Gazette called Approaching Union Square a “startlingly accomplished debut.”
