North Country Shorts – two films from Janek Ambros

The North Country Shorts will screen Saturday June 15th, 3-6 pm at the Lake Placid Center for the Arts.

Among the line-up are two films from Janek Ambros, a former resident of Albany, NY who still visits Lake Placid on a regular basis.  “I have a lot of pride in upstate, NY,” Janek told us, “and go to Lake Placid every July 4th since I was 13.”

Janek is now a filmmaker living in Los Angeles.  Two of his films were selected for this year’s shorts program, “Son of Man” and “American Montage.”  The latter film will be a world premiere
