Prom Night in Mississippi is showing at 6:30 p.m. Friday at BAMcinemaFEST. Although the film is slated for HBO at some point this summer, the BAM premiere could be New Yorkers’ only chance to see it on the big screen.
I was lucky enough to catch the film at Sundance 2009 and to have the privilege of getting to know Jessica Shivers and Chasidy Buckley, the film’s two charismatic leading ladies. What follows is my own brief, very lo-fi doc of the events directly before and after the film’s debut.
