Dinosaur Curtains (2010) is a short nonfiction piece directed by siblings Bill and Turner Ross (Tchoupitoulas) while they were in the process of filming their acclaimed 2009 regional-study documentary 45365.
The movie chronicles a day in the life of a young family as they anticipate the airing of an episode of the game show Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? that features one of them as a contestant. The Ross Bros’ approach to the day’s events produces a work of genuine fun, emotion and intimacy as it regards a unique personal experience with patient observation and a careful attention to both quotidian details and its subjects.
The Ross Bros. are currently working on their first project since the release of their web document, The River, which recently had a one-off screening in Toronto. Kyle Rouse has also created a handsome photography collection from the journey documented in The River, which also features journal entries and an illustrated map, and can be purchased at here.
