Joanna Paxinou will interview Chris Ford, writer and director of the romantic comedy, “The Village Barbershop.” The film is being presented by the Sedona International Film Festival as part of its hugely popular Second Tuesday Cinema Series. “This is a perfect heartfelt and touching film for us to feature right after our film festival. It is a testament to the resilience and humor of the human spirit,” said Sedona International Film Festival Executive Director Patrick Schweiss. “We are so fortunate to get to talk about the film with the writer and director.” “The Village Barbershop” won the Audience Award as Best Feature at the Cinequest Film Festival. The film is the humorous, sweet story of a fading old man who has lost his way and a determined young woman looking to find hers. Two unlikely people offered a second chance in one unlikely place – the village barbershop. The film stars two-time Emmy Award-nominee John Ratzenberger of Cheers fame, Cindy Pickett from St. Elsewhere, and Shelly Cole from The Gilmore Girls who won the Best Actress Award at the Newport Beach Film Festival. VARIETY: “This is precisely the sort of movie people who no longer go to movies often complain ‘they just don’t make anymore.’ “The Village Barbershop” is just as warm, humorous and ingratiating as it means to be, with solid work by all principal cast.” Chris Ford: “I decided to figure out how to make “The Village Barbershop” while shooting some commercials with Ed Burns and his producing partner, Aaron Lubin, who casually insisted it wasn’t that hard for a first-time director to make his first feature film.” The DVD can be purchased at www.montereymedia.com.
