FRANK & CINDY (2007)


Feature Documentary

Directed & Edited by GJ Echternkamp

A feature documentary about my stepfather, who was in a one-hit wonder band in the 80's but now lives in my mother's basement. There's more to the story, but I don't want to oversell it.

Winner of BEST DOCUMENTARY at Raindance, Seattle, and Calgary film festivals.

Adapted into the film starring Rene Russo and Oliver Platt, as well as Episode 4 "The Cameraman" of Showtime's EMMY-nominated THIS AMERICAN LIFE series.

"Riveting." SF Chronicle

"It's raw, it's riveting, it's appalling, and it's disturbingly hilarious." Orlando Weekly

"Hysterical and devastating and completely mesmerizing." The Stranger
