JAMES WHITE, the new feature from award-winning Borderline Films, starring Christopher Abbott, Cynthia Nixon, and Scott “Kid Cudi” Mescudi, just launched a Kickstarter campaign. The film is the feature-length directorial debut of Borderline Films' Josh Mond.
Christopher Abbott ("Girls," MARTHA MARCY MAY MARLENE) stars as the epnonymous JAMES WHITE in this frenetic coming of age story about a young New Yorker struggling to take control of his reckless, self destructive behavior in the face of momentous family challenges. The film is explores the close relationship between a single mother and her son.
Borderline Films, is made up of three filmmakers: Mond, Antonio Campos, and Sean Durkin. Ten years after founding Borderline as film students at NYU, their feature films have played at the Cannes Film Festival, Sundance Film Festival, New York Film Festival, and Toronto International Film Festival, been nominated for five Independent Spirit Awards, four Gotham Awards, and won Best Director at Sundance (Sean Durkin for MARTHA MARCY MAY MARLENE).
To support each other in achieving their goal of making their first features on their own terms, Mond, Campos, and Durkin rotate roles in the filmmaking process. When one of them writes and directs, the other two produce, and they all support each other creatively and financially. If someone needs time to work on a script, the other two will direct commercials and split the money three ways.
JAMES WHITE has officially wrapped production. The film's Kickstarter campaign will be used to collect funds for post-production, including editing, sounds design and mixing, and securing music rights.
