Directed by Joey Izzo
JOEY IZZO is an award winning writer/director whose work has screened at festivals worldwide, including Cannes Film Festival, New York Film Festival, and San Francisco International Film Festival. His latest short film, I WAS THERE TOO premiered at Aspen Shorts Fest and highlighted a sold-out retrospective of Izzo’s work at the American Cinematheque, Egyptian Theater in Los Angeles. His short MY DAUGHTER'S BOYFRIEND (a NoBudge premiere) has garnered over 6-million views on YouTube. His previous short film, STEPSISTER, was the first film from San Francisco to be included in Cannes’ Cinéfondation Official Selection. Joey’s dry-humored narrative style developed after years in the experimental film world. Highlighting this period, BARE ROOM was made in collaboration with esteemed New York composer and MacArthur Genius Grant recipient John Zorn.
