Cold Weather - The movie not the forecast

The long awaited indie film, Cold Weather, is set to premiere at the SXSW Festival in Austin, Texas in March. The trailer has created lots of buzz on the Internet. One site even includes the film in their list of most anticipated movies in 2010. Click on Cold Weather to see the trailer.

Here is the official plot description from the SXSW site:
A former forensic science major and avid reader of detective fiction, who, after making a mess of his life in Chicago, returns to his hometown of Portland, Oregon. There, he, his sister Gail, and new friend Carlos become embroiled in something unexpected. Director and Screenwriter: Aaron Katz (my son). Cast: Cris Lankenau, Trieste Kelly Dunn. Caterer: ME!
OK, they don't list the caterer on the SXSW site, but they should. The film couldn't have been made without happy movie makers and no one is happy without good food. If you are interested in the food details, go to my blog posts in March and April.

So far I've only seen the trailer (no previews even for Mom). It looks and sounds promising. I don't even know the whole plot, but I can remember the food for each scene. The trailer starts with the top of a parking garage (cold ham, salads, and homemade cookies); the next shot is on the bridge at Multnomah Falls (monster custom sandwiches and fruit); followed by Indian Beach at Ecola Park (more sandwiches); and toward the end the library at Portland State (lasagna, tossed salad, and homemade cupcakes).

When the reviews come out, maybe they will give kudos to the caterer.
