    Ovum the Film--Interviews on the Films from the Big Apple Film Festival 2015

    in Entertainment

    We'll be spending an incredibly interesting time interviewing Producer Vincent Petrocini and the some of the production team of OVUM the film. I had the opportunity to screen and do the Q and A session for this film. 


    Ovum is an multi-award winning (including the Big Apple Film Festival 2015 Award Winner) dark comedy about a quirky Brooklyn actress who tries The Method to approach an Off-Broadway role and is drawn into the strange, shady world of egg donation clinics and the unlikely characters who populate them: from unscrupulous doctors with mind bending fertility drugs to the broken, nihilistic model donors and a notorious faded movie star who wants our heroine's OVUM at any cost. But things are not as they first appear in a world where wealthy couples seek to buy the perfect designer egg. Is more at stake than just a role? What is the true worth of a human egg?


    Director: Matt Ott
