“SAINTS is based on director Dito Montiel's youth during the mid-eighties in the tough neighborhood of Astoria, Queens. All his old friends have ended up dead, as junkies, or in prison; Dito is the proverbial man who got out. For him, the "saints" are the folks he remembers, the ones he left behind. For better or worse, they made him who he is today.”
It screens at Sundance January 20-22, and the 25th and 27th. I hope it shows in Astoria after its run in Utah!
