Rooftop Films, in conjunction with AT&T and IFC Films, will be presenting a sneak preview on August 15 of dramatic rural romance Ain't Them Bodies Saintsstarring Rooney Mara and Casey Affleck. Director David Lowery - a Rooftop Films & Edgeworx Post-Production Grant recipient and alumnus - will be in attendance for a Q&A after the film. Ain't Them Bodies Saints premiered this year at Sundance and was awarded the Cinematography Award in the U.S. Dramatic Category; it will be premiering in theaters the following day on August 16.
