Feature Film Released Online Through YouTube

Kalup Linzy (2008 Visual Arts) has released the feature film component of his Creative Capital project, Romantic Loner, online through YouTube. In conjunction with the premiere, Tribeca Film Institute and MoMA are co-sponsoring a live performance version of Romantic Loner at MoMA PS1 on Sunday, April 14 at 4:00pm.

Romantic Loner is a feature film that tells the story of Linzy's alter ego, Kaye, who, after a series of failed relationships, attends an artist residency and has an intensive period of soul-searching. The majority of the film was shot at Headlands Center for the Arts in Sausalito, CA, in 2012, when Linzy was supported by an Alumni Awards Residency. Along with the feature film, the Romantic Loner project also encompasses two shorts, prints, a live performance event and a soundtrack album, which is available through iTunes and other digital outlets.
