Hi-fives for lo-fi sci-fi

'Another Earth' preems in New York

NEW YORK — Although Mike Cahill’s aspirations for his debut pic, “Another Earth,” were “small and modest,” the July 20 preem at Landmark’s Sunshine Theater was anything but.

Established filmmakers including Robert Benton, Charles Ferguson, Tamara Jenkins and John Patrick Shanley co-hosted the screening as well as the swanky after party at Top of the Standard.

Pic, which Fox Searchlight picked up at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, tells the story of a young woman just accepted to MIT, who while looking at a newly-discovered planet, accidentally kills a mother and her child in a car accident.

“We’ve been selling it as a thought provoking lo-fi sci-fi,” says Searchlight’s Michelle Hooper. “There’s not a lot of bells and whistles, but its still really poignant and moving. We feel like it applies to this film.”
