New Yawkers/Angelenos, Time To Hit The Thea-tuh [Children Of Invention Theatrical Debut]

Remember Tze Chun’s film, Children of Invention–the one that racked up all those awards and accolades during the festival rounds last year? It’s hitting theaters in New York and Los Angeles for a week, starting tonight.

Children of Invention: Two kids are left to fend for themselves after their mom gets thrown in the clink for participating in an illegal pyramid scheme.

Our Children of Invention Are Smarter/More Successful/Likely to Give Us Grandkids Than Your Children of Invention

Jen and I typically, like Morrissey, hate it when our friends become successful.

Every so often, however, this is not the case.

Like right now, for example: we’ve been watching our pen pal Tze Chun’s film, Children of Invention, make the festival rounds and rack up gobs of sparkling accolades and awards. And they’re not little awards, either: Special Jury Prizes at the Nashville, Sarasota, and San Francisco International Asian American Film Festivals (for example), The Grand Jury Prize at the Independent Film Fest in Boston, blah blah blah win win win. Agh!

Most recently, Invention scored the Grand Jury Prize for Best Feature in our very own grown-up hometown, at the LAAPFF.

Cute kids + Sweet filmmaking = Awards and applause

And you wanna know something? We couldn’t be happier. Weird.
