CAA Signs ‘Beneath the Harvest Sky’ Duo Aron Gaudet, Gita Pullapilly

CAA has signed the “Beneath the Harvest Sky” directing-producing team of Aron Gaudet and Gita Pullapilly, Variety has learned exclusively.

They were previously represented by UTA. Gaudet and Pullapilly were featured in Variety’s Ten Directors to Watch list in 2014.

They wrote, directed and produced “Beneath the Harvest Sky,” which premiered at the Toronto Film Festival in 2013. The coming-of-age drama, starring Callan McAuliffe and Emory Cohen, included a marketing plan developed in partnership with Harvard Business School and was picked up by Tribeca Films.

Gaudet and Pullapilly also directed “The Way We Get By,” a chronicle of three senior citizens who find meaning in welcoming back U.S. soldiers. The documentary premiered at SXSW in 2009 and won more than a dozen festival awards before garnering a PBS broadcast on “P.O.V.”

They are currently casting their next narrative feature, “Crook County,” about a whistleblower’s harrowing journey into an ‘8os undercover FBI operation in Cook County, Ill. Gaudet and Pullapilly were selected last year as Guggenheim fellows to support the development of “Crook County.”

The duo were also creators and exec producers of the PBS special “Lifecasters.” Their attorney is Patti Felker at Felker, Toczek, Suddleson & Abramson.
