1. Filmmaker Jonathan Langager successfully funded production of his USC thesis film, Josephine and the Roach, in the summer of 2011. The whimsical short tells the story of a roach violinist who falls in love with an accordionist. Despite their almost unimaginable differences, duets ensue. 
Tomorrow, the film screens at the Brooklyn Academy of Music as part of the Jim Henson Foundation’s “Puppets on Film” series. We can’t imagine a more illustrious platform for a director and his puppet — congratulations to both of them!
