Narrowsburg tells the story of a glamorous French film producer and a mafioso-turned actor who attempted to turn a small town in upstate New York into the “Sundance of the East.”
Narrowsburg tells the stranger-than-fiction story of a glamorous French film producer and her mafioso-turned-actor husband who move to a struggling town in upstate New York with dreams of starting a new life. A critical reflection on the power of cinema, and the question of when dreams become delusions, this film follows Richard and Jocelyne Castellano, as well as the local townspeople, as they work to transform Narrowsburg into the “Sundance of the East.”
