As Apple Pie

Written and directed by South African born Pierre Marais, ‘As Apple Pie’ is an immigrant’s observation of an American conversation. There seem to be fewer cultivated spaces to have an honest conversation with differing opinions and the result is that no one is really talking to each other. Not communicating seems to be as American as apple pie.

Written and Directed by Pierre Marais

Starring Josh Breckenridge (Come From Away, The Scottsboro Boys), Ilda Mason (Steven Spielberg’s West Side Story) and Justin Sargent (Rock of Ages, Spider-Man Turn Off The Dark)

Cinematography by Matthew Tompkins.
