The Independent Feature Project and the Film Society of Lincoln Center have selected David Williams’ “13” as the next film to screen in American Independent Visions, their quarterly series co-sponsored by Time Warner and the Sundance Channel.
“13” — which features a cast of mostly newcomers — is Williams’ sophomore effort. The coming-of-age pic centers on the disappearance and subsequent experiences of a teenage girl from the perspective of her mother. It screened at Toronto and picked up the International Federation of Film Societies Jury Award at Berlin in 1998.
Williams received the Someone to Watch Award at the Independent Spirit Awards in 1999. His first film, “Lillian,” won the Special Jury Award for Distinction at Sundance in 1993.
The American Independent Visions series is dedicated to presenting films without domestic theatrical distribution. All screenings take place at Lincoln Center’s Walter Reade Theater.
