Oscilloscope Labs debuted the official trailer for the documentary, So Late So Soon, “An intimate portrait of the energetic and beautifully eccentric Chicago-based artists Jackie and Don Seiden, married for five decades.” Directed by Daniel Hymanson, the documentary was an official selection of multiple festivals including True/False Documentary Film Festival, DOC NYC, Big Sky Documentary Film Festival, Calgary Underground Film Festival. Oscilloscope Labs will release the documentary in theaters in November 2021.
Half a century into their marriage, Chicago artists Jackie and Don Seiden approach the fragility of their elderly lives in their own distinct ways. Jackie, notorious for her unbounded energy, is constantly on the move, inspired to create works of art while also maintaining the couple’s multi-story, brightly-painted Victorian house. Don steadily sketches in his notebook while facing alarming interruptions to his health. Director Daniel Hymanson filmed the Seidens, on-and-off for five years, capturing the hardships of aging as well as a view into enduring companionship, in this charming, life-affirming character study.
