Parmigiani fleurier hosts Hollywood premiere of “GET LOW”
Parmigiani Fleurier SA, recognized worldwide for the haute horlogerie timepieces created entirely within its independent workshops and a longtime supporter of the independent film industry, hosted the Los Angeles premiere of Sony Pictures Classics newest film “Get Low” starring Robert Duvall, Sissy Spacek, Bill Murray and Lucas Black.
The premiere and an exclusive after-party took place last night at the Samuel Goldwyn Theater, well known as the venue of the Academy Awards ceremony.
“Parmigiani has long admired the work Sony Pictures Classics because their films consistently achieve the highest levels of artistry and creativity - two qualities that also define the Parmigiani Fleurier brand.” said Michelle Veyna, President of Parmigiani USA.
Just this year Parmigiani co-hosted Sony Pictures Classics’ pre-Oscar event in Beverly Hills in celebration of the film company’s 13 Academy Award nominations. The luxury brand frequently supports Sony Pictures Classics events and most recently hosted the West Coast film premieres of “An Education,” “It Might Get Loud,” “Rachel Getting Married,” as well as the East Coast premiere of “Chloe.”
“Get Low” is inspired by the true story of Felix ―Bush Breazeale, who attracted national attention and the largest crowd to assemble up to that date when he threw himself a living funeral party in 1938 in Roane County, Tennessee. An 8-year labor of love for producer Dean Zanuck (“Road to Perdition”), “Get Low” is directed by Aaron Schneider who makes his feature debut after winning the Academy Award® for his short, “Two Soldiers”, and written by Chris Provenzano (“Mad Men”) and C. Gaby Mitchell (“Blood Diamond”). The behind-the-scenes team includes Emmy Award-winning cinematographer David Boyd, A.S.C. (“Deadwood”), Academy Award®-nominated production designer Geoffrey Kirkland (“The Right Stuff, Children of Men”) and twice Oscar®-nominated Costume Designer Julie Weiss (“Frida, Twelve Monkeys”).
