Another film that Fenton will miss by leaving SXSW too early is Ondi Timoner’s We Live in Public, which picked up the Grand Jury Prize for American Documentary at Sundance this year. You may remember another of Ondi’s films, DiG!, which was about two frenemy LA rock bands, The Dandy Warhols and Brian Jonestown Massacre. DiG! won the Grand Jury Prize for American Documentary at Sundance as well back in 2004.
In the spirit of gratuitous disclosure, I should mention that I appear naked in Ondi’s first award-winning film, Eyelash. It won the Viewer’s Choice Award from Citizens Television in 1995. It is, of course, unlisted in her IMDB and Wikipedia entries, and mercifully, it has not been uploaded to youtube or facebook. Yet.
