“Of Dolls & Murder” in the news as director Susan Marks completes her successful Kickstarter campaign!

Something's not quite right in this little kitchen. A dollhouse crime scene in "Of Dolls & Murder."

Friends, it’s all about Of Dolls & Murder these days as we count down to THIS TUESDAY’S Regional Premiere of the film right here in Lowell with Director Susan Marks in attendance!

Not Boston.
Not Cambridge.

And following our Mill City screening, director Susan Marks will take Of Dolls & Murder to Gloucester on October 26 for a showing at one of our favorite indie theaters, the Cape Ann Community Cinema. Whether here in Lowell or over in Gloucester, we truly hope you’ll catch this fascinating film.

Susan comes to us all the way from Minnesota by way of New York City where ODAM will screen at a super secret location. It’s a fascinating story that’s fully disclosed on her Kickstarter page where she’s been busy fundraising for her next project: an intriguing follow up to Of Dolls & Murder. We’d like to take this opportunity to congratulate Susan on a successful campaign and to encourage you to learn more about this project which includes a partnership with New York artist, performer and children’s book illustrator Cynthia von Buhler. Click here to learn all about it, and if you are so inclined, please donate! Though Susan has made her project goal, expenses can add up quickly and the extra dollars will certainly come in handy as the creative process unfolds.

So how lucky are we to be bringing this documentary premiere to Lowell? Here are a few great reviews, blog posts and stories featuring Of Dolls & Murder — enjoy the read!
