THE BAD KIDS Directors Keith Fulton and Lou Pepe

DIRECTORS' PROFILE | Starts December 23rd at Cinema Village!

Keith Fulton (Producer/Director/Sound) and Lou Pepe (Producer/Director/Cinematographer) are award-winning filmmakers of both documentary and fiction films, among them Lost in La Mancha, which was nominated for the European Film Award for Best Documentary, shortlisted for the Best Documentary Oscar, and winner of the Evening Standard's Peter Sellers Award. Lost in La Mancha stands as the first and only verité chronicle of the collapse of a major motion picture and was an international theatrical success. Fulton and Pepe also directed the narrative feature film Brothers of the Head, which won the coveted Michael Powell Award for Best British Feature in 2006.

As Low Key Pictures, the directing team received numerous documentary commissions from the Gates Foundation’s Teaching Channel, for which they produced a series of short films about excellent teachers and practices in California public schools.  For Participant Media, they created I Am Education, a web series that explored pressing issues in education entirely through the voices and perspectives of school children.

Fulton and Pepe are also the authors of numerous screenplays, including The Wizards of Perfil, which made the Hollywood Black List in 2007.  The team also created Malkovich’s Mail, one of the first original documentary programs for AMC.  Fulton and Pepe hold MFAs in film production from Temple University and are alumni of the Sundance Institute’s Writing and Directing Labs.  With The Bad Kids they were invited to participate in the 2014 Sundance Catalyst Forum and have recently become recipients of the Sundance Institute's Documentary Film Program Grant.
