Iggy & Antjuan : A Work-In-Progress

Produced by: 
Karen Smith, directed by Andres Nicolini
32 min

Nicolini's Iggy & Antjuan: a Life in Progress is an all too brief, but never exploitative look into the first three years of a developmentally challenged newlywed couple. From their wedding day to the activities of daily living, the filmmaker provides an intimate forum for Iggy and Antjuan to tell their story ... a love story. Since the video was completed in 2000, Iggy has completed vocational training, and Antjuan has found work as a bus boy in a prestigious Center City hotel.

Andres Nicolini's work has been shown in numerous festivals, television networks, and other venues nationally and internationally including the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Los Angeles Latino Film Festival and Valparaiso International Documentary Festival. His narrative film "Becoming American" won the best fiction film at New York CityVisions, and one of his first works, #28 [LINK] is part of the Scribe Video Center catalog. Nicolini is currently developing a narrative feature film about young immigrants in New York.
