FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA November 28, 2008 — After recent theatrical runs of his narrative feature film ABLE DANGER in New York and Los Angeles, Lower Merion, Penn., native Dave Herman (aka Paul Krik) will screen his film for the first time for two nights only in the Philadelphia area on December 17 at Bryn Mawr Film Institute at 7:30pm and December 18 at the Wayne Theater at 5:00pm, 7:00pm, and 9:11pm presented by 9 /11 (And Beyond) Documentaries.
Herman is a class of 1986 graduate of Lower Merion High School, which coincidentally happens to be the neighboring Congressional District of U.S. Rep. Curt Weldon who brought the real “Able Danger” before Senatorial hearings and exposed the 9/11 whistle blowers. Sander Hicks, whose book The Big Wedding: 9/11, The Whistle Blowers & The Cover Up is seen in the film ABLE DANGER, will appear for a Q&A after the 9:11pm screening on Dec. 18.
ABLE DANGER, the film, tells the story of Thomas Flynn, a Brooklyn 9/11 truther (played by Adam Nee), who falls into a noir pastiche when a mysterious Eastern European beauty (played by Elina Löwensohn, Independent Spirit Award nominee for “Nadja”) arrives at his bookstore-café with irrefutable proof of American secret intelligence involvement in the planning and execution of 9/11. When Thomas is implicated in the murder of his friend and employee, he’s forced to unravel her complex web of lies while attempting to fight his natural attraction to her. As it turns out, she possesses the Able Danger hard-drive, the smoking gun that proves the identities and methods of the real architects of 9/11, and Thomas is willing to risk everything to expose the truth. The film gets its title from the real secret government program of the same name that destroyed 2.5 terabytes of data in March 2001, and the café featured is based on the very real Brooklyn café for radical readers, Vox Pop.
“Playing to a sold out crowd in New York on 9/11 was sublime and epitomized why I made the film as it is intended to be a good date movie that will give you something political to talk about later on in the evening,” said Herman. “It was the outcome of the 2004 election that threw me into a noir-worldview and served as impetus to make the film. I’m very happy about the outcome of the latest election, and look forward to seeing the reaction to the film by swing state voters near where I grew up, and hopefully also by Rep. Weldon.”
With a Masters Degree in existential philosophy and a background in TV commercials, most recently known for his Kanye West mock-infomercial viral (as seen on YouTube), Krik has created ABLE DANGER, his first feature film. It has been blazing the festival trail, starting at the International Film Festival in Rotterdam where it premiered in a 400-seat theater, selling out all three nights, and opened the Brooklyn International Film Festival where it received Outstanding Achievement in Production. It then screened at Cannes, and was an Official Selection at the Transylvania, Philadelphia, Pifan (Korea) & Warsaw film festivals.
