“Coriander” is the brainchild of writer Falzone and director Grant, which Falzone called, “… the culmination of a 42 year project.” It was back then that the germ of the idea was conceived, and the result – after many stops and starts along the way – became an animated film with a unique art design that evokes both the era and the narrative. The story is about a seminal event in movie and American history … the death of silent film era matinee idol Rudolph Valentino in 1926. A woman named Coriander becomes involved in the circumstance of Valentino’s passing, and brings along her past and present situations to the funeral.

”Coriander and a Penny’s Worth of Lonesome” will screen on Monday, October 14th, 2019, at the Film Row Cinema, 1104 South Wabash Avenue/8th Floor, Chicago. For more information about Film Row Cinema, click here. senior staff writer Patrick McDonald
