A feature film written and directed by Eric McGinty and produced by Anna Sang Park.
“WALLABOUT… comes from a place of truth… a beautiful exploration of finding oneself after losing it.”New York Minute Magazine
Alex has recently returned to New York City after spending 10 years in Europe as the unrecognized muse to a famous filmmaker. Overeducated, underemployed, and branded as unstable, she struggles to reboot her life in Brooklyn. When Alex is kicked out of her apartment and fired from her low-paid job, she turns to family and friends only to be rejected.
Determined to help her ailing father while still pursuing a creative career, Alex picks up shady part-time work and tangles with many colorful characters. Eventually she meets Frank, an enigmatic film producer, and the two fall in love. But Frank’s even more checkered past catches up with the couple.
Wallabout is an intimate first-person account of an outsider who survives by her wits as she encounters an often corrupt and hypocritical society. It’s an urban meditation on artistic perseverance and the eternal search for family.
BATIGNOLLES is a dark comedy feature film by writer-director Eric McGinty. This tightly woven Altmanesque tale follows a multi-ethnic family that reunites around a funeral in Paris. Class and racial tensions come to the fore as members of the extended family and their companions clash and also fall in love. English-speaking expats mesh with Parisian characters from all walks of life. Batignolles is a true-to-life satire that captures the culturally and socio-economically diverse reality of today.
Excited that WALLABOUT will have its Vermont premiere at the Middlebury New Filmmakers Festival!
