No doubt the success of Juno spurred ThinkFilm's decision to distribute The Tracey Fragments. They will release the film in New York City on May 9, to be followed by a presumably limited release (given the film's unconventional nature) to other cities. The film is nominated for six awards at next month's Genies (Canada's big entertainment award), including best actress for Page. It also won the Manfred Salzgeber Panorama Jury Prize, for a film that "broadens the boundaries of cinema," at last year's Berlin fest. It also garnered positive reviews from Cinematical's own James Rocchi and Erik Davis.
For those curious about the film, the official website is definitely worth a look. It offers the trailer which provides a glimpse at McDonald's intriguing approach, a downloadable Tracey Fragments comic book in PDF format, and a fascinating bit called Tracey: ReFragmented (which Monika first posted about here) for which McDonald made all the footage shot for the film available and held a contest inviting anyone and everyone to remix it. The contest is closed but you can still view the entries.
