Williamsburg Film Festival to Feature THANK YOU FOR JUDGING, 11/20
The Williamsburg Independent Film Festival (willfilm.org) will feature THANK YOU FOR JUDGING, a documentary about the competitive world of high school speech and debate, at IndieScreen on November 20. The film was produced by Michael Urie and Daryl Roth and directed by Michael Urie, Sean Fornara, Selma Al-Faqih & Travis Flournoy.
In Texas every year, the best of the best come to be judged at the mother of all Speech and Debate competitions. They might play all the characters from a madcap stage play, interpret aloud the autobiography of a ninety year old, speak from their heart about labels and stereotypes, or argue the rights and wrongs of the latest in politics.
These kids will tug at your heart strings and tickle your funny bone as they learn not only about speaking in public, but also confidence, adult relations, and self-presentation, both in appearance and eloquence.
