Coming to theatres this Friday, October 30: COMING HOME
Viko Nikci’s portrait of a newly-freed man debuted at Galway in 2014, where it won two awards. It came stateside for DOC NYC, and also screened at Dublin, Indie Cork, and Newport Film, among other events.
I previously wrote about the film for DOC NYC’s program, saying:
At the age of 25, Angel Cordero, an innocent man, was arrested and convicted of attempted murder following a stabbing in the Bronx. Viko Nikci follows him as he is released from prison after thirteen years into a new world of smartphones and social media. Readjusting to life on the outside, Angel has two goals: confronting the man who actually committed the crime for which he was punished, and repairing his relationship with the daughter he was forced to leave behind.
