‘Beneath the Harvest Sky’ Directors Tapped as Guggenheim Fellows

Beneath the Harvest Sky” directors Aron Gaudet and Gita Pullapilly have been selected as Guggenheim fellows for 2015 to support their next feature film, “Crook County.”

The couple were honored as part of Variety’s “10 Directors to Watch” in late 2013 for “Harvest Sky,” their directorial debut. The coming-of-age drama, starring Callan McAuliffe and Emory Cohen, premiered at the Toronto Film Festival with a marketing plan developed in partnership with Harvard Business School and was picked up by Tribeca Films.

The fellowship is one of 173 awarded this year from a group of over 3,100 applicants. Since 1925, the foundation has awarded over $325 million in fellowships to nearly 18,000 individuals.

Details of “Crook County” are being kept under wraps.

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.”

The duo were also creators and exec producers of the PBS special “Lifecasters.” They are repped by UTA and Kaplan Perrone.
