In the Summer of 2005, six award-winning NYU Alums of the Graduate Film Program came together and formed the collective, 6 Leagues, a New York based underground film collective.
Committed to the notion of collaboration and exploration, Ed Durante, Rod Gailes O.B.C., Caran Hartsfield, Stacey L. Holman, Cinque Northern and James Richards, created: 6 Things I Never Told You, a feature film anthology of cinematic snapshots examining committed romantic relationships in flux. Each segment stakes out a significant landmark in the time line of relationships renewed, dominated, lost and longing for one thing. Control.
Together, they have explored all manners of political, cultural, and sexual material. All grown up now, what do they have to say about the most controversial topic of our time: LOVE?
