Pleasant People, the movie starring Jiyoung Lee of Oh My Melodies and emo pop band I Love JH, was well received at Slamdance back in January. Saturday April 16 the people of Chicago will get a chance to watch this charming movie at Chicago International Movies and Music Festival – ticket information here. Yesterday it was announced that Pleasant People will also be shown in its home town as Atlanta Film Festival has accepted it for the Narrative Competition with screenings both on Saturday April 30 and Friday May 6.
The director of the film, Dave Bonawits, wrote about his experiences from Slamdance for CinemATL some time ago: Pleasant People experience the Slamdance Film Festival – By David Bonawits
