Thomas Johnston USA / 2011 / 88 min / HDCam / English A modern comedy that explores the simple truth that it’s never too late to start over again. Even at age 50. We meet two long­time golf­buddies, Adam, going through a trial separation from his wife of 15 years and Jon, who is not only losing work to the ‘young guy’, but also dealing with a ‘generous’ prostate. They decide to take off on a weekend journey to let loose and re­live the Palm Springs get­a­way of their younger days but meet with unexpected results. Struggling to fit in with the younger crowd, they find surprising comfort through encounters with women nearer their own age. As the weekend progresses, both are forced to come to a truce with middle life’s predicaments. A film that asks the question, “If fifty is the new thirty then why do my knees ache?” in what may be the world’s first coming of age story… about the coming of age.

Howard Elfman Broker/Owner THE DIRECTOR: ABOUT FIFTY is the second feature film for director Thomas Johnston. He co­directed his first feature, JEROME, released in 2001 and was a hit on the festival circuit worldwide including the AFI Los Angeles and Berlin Film Festivals. The Los Angeles Times wrote of JEROME, “an example of mature, disciplined American Independent filmmaking at its best.” Tom is a long­ time associate of the filmmaking Coen Brothers, as well as director Robert Redford. THE PRODUCTION: At a certain point in life, you have to ask “if not now, when?” This is where Drew Pillsbury & Martin Grey Gottlieb had found themselves. After years in the business and always having the dream to pro­ duce a film, they finally pulled the trigger and dove in. Pillsbury had previously worked with director Tom John­ ston on the festival hit, JEROME, with co­star Wendie Malick and suggested him for this project. Tom immediately agreed and brought with him a wealth of experience and artistic know­how. What began as an idea between two friends had now morphed into a reality under Johnston’s guidance.




SENATOR GEORGE MCGOVERN George McGovern was the Democratic Party's candidate for President in 1972, and lost to incum­ bent President Richard M. Nixon in one of the most lopsided landslides in American political history. His father was a preacher, and McGovern attended public schools, then left college to join the Army Air Corps for World War II. He flew 35 combat missions over North Africa and Italy, and won the Distinguished Flying Cross for piloting his damaged bomber across Yugoslavia to a re­ mote island runway that was far shorter than the minimum length to safely land. McGovern had his crew throw all their non­ essential equipment overboard, then both pi­ lots stood on the brake as the plane touched down. After the war, he came home and resumed his college education. He had been raised in a Re­ publican family, but first registered to vote as an Independent, then worked alongside Paul Robeson as an activist for the Progressive Party, arguing against America's peacetime draft, and opposing British and American domination of the Middle East. Like most third parties in America, the Progressive Party went nowhere, and McGovern became a Democrat after hearing a fiery speech by Illinois Governor Adlai Stevenson. McGovern taught history and government at Dakota Wes­ leyan University for several years, then ran for Congress in 1956, where he served two terms. In 1960 he left the House to run for the US Senate, losing to the Republican incumbent, Karl Mundt, but McGovern kept his campaign workers together and ran for South Dakota's other Senate seat two years later, defeat­ ing Republican Joe Bottum by a narrow margin. He voted for the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution authorizing what became the Vietnam

War, but McGovern soon came to believe that the cost of the war, both monetarily and in body bags, could not be justified by the "domino theory" that America needed to hold the line against advancing com­ munism. He became one of the first promi­ nent politicians to speak out against that war, and famously said on the Senate floor, "I'm tired of old men dream­ ing up wars for young men to fight". He ran for President in 1972, and was given little chance of securing his party's nomination. Republicans, though, saw McGovern as the weakest ­­ and thus the preferred ­­ Democratic opponent, so the Nixon campaign targeted fron­ trunner Sen Ed Muskie with dirty tricks, including a smear campaign against Muskie's wife that led to Muskie break­ ing down in tears on camera. Muskie's sup­ port faltered, and McGovern became the Democratic nominee, running on a promise to end the war, bring home the troops and prisoners held by the Vietnamese, and offering amnesty for draft evaders who had fled the country. When he chose Missouri Sen­ ator Thomas Eagleton as his Vice Presidential candidate, ques­ tions began surfacing about Eagleton's past. Within days it was revealed that Eagleton had once suffered depression, and he was replaced on the ticket by Sargent Shriver. After losing the Presidential election, McGovern remained in the Senate until in 1980. He owned a book store for many years, hosted Saturday Night Live in 1984, and has been a United Na­ tions Global Ambassador on World Hunger since 2001. He was and remains an outspoken critic of the 2003 invasion and occupation of Iraq.

After Eagleton, could there be hope? He ushered in the phrase.

Memories of the good fight.

Campaigning, not always glamorous.

He was on TIME, but was time ready for him.

In the 1972 slug­fest campaign for the Presidency, a minor news story rests on page 4 of a break­ a vacation from in at the offices of the Democratic Party National Headquarters at Watergate Office Complex on ordinary film June 17, 1972...just four months before the election. The story itself seemed like small potatoes October 22 at the time when it was assigned to Washington Post reporter, Bob Woodward. As Woodward dug beneath the known details, he discovered that the five arrested burglars were being represented in court by some very high profile attorneys. Post Editor Ben Bradlee assigns Woodward and fellow reporter, Carl Bernstein to follow the story and find where it leads.

Handwriting type

Thus began a modern tale of Shakespearean intrigue, deceit, greed, paranoia and lust for power, culminating with the only resignation of a U.S. President in history. This was only after Richard Nixon won a landslide victory over the Democratic party nominee, Senator George McGovern. FLIFF is honored to have Sen. McGovern join us for this special screening, sharing his remem­ brances of this fascinating period of American history. He will take questions from the audience about the film and the happenings (some of which never reported) during that incredible year of 1972.

SOUTHEAST PREMIERE Michel Hazanavicius EAST COAST PREMIERE France / 2011 / 100 min / WORLD PREMIERE Silent w/English insert­titles UNITED STATES PREMIERE Hollywood 1927. George Valentin is a silent movie superstar. The advent of the talkies FLORIDA PREMIERE will sound the death knell for his career and FESTIVAL see him fall intoWINNERS oblivion. For young extra Peppy Miller, it seems the sky's the limit ­ major movie stardom awaits. THE ARTIST tells the story of their interlinked destinies. On paper, Michel Hazanavicius‘s The Artist looks a fairly difficult sell. Tell anyone you’re off to see a black and white, silent movie that runs over 90 minutes long and they might look at you with a mix of pity and downright confusion, and it will probably take a Herculean effort by The Weinstein Company to convince audiences to come out to see it. But make no mistake, the film is as good as any cinematic experience gets, and will have a far more lasting effect on the world of film than any bloated 3D “epic”. The Artist is an infinitely charming, and incredibly clever homage to the Golden Age of silent film: as authentic and believable as if it were made circa 1927, right from the opening credits which are so subtly unquestionable that you’re immediately gripped by the glamour and romance of the era, before we’ve even met a character. When we do, it’s Jean Dujardin’s George Valentin, an intoxicatingly charming mega-star of the silent period, who has the whole Hollywood world on their knees before him – the film subsequently charts his peek, before the advent of the talkies arrives. Along the way he meets Berenice Bejo’s Peppy Miller, a wannabe who miraculously finds her way to stardom when she bumps into George during a photo shoot, and takes her fate in her own hands to ensure she makes a career of the brief fame that follows. Simon Gallagher, Film School Rejects

It’s not easy to quickly tell what an inspiration is, because it is a combination of many things. And I used the success of my two previous movies to do it. When people asked me what I wanted to do, I’d tell them the truth and say that this is what I want to do, and I felt that this was a good time to do it, because If I didn’t do it now, I’d probably never do it. So I tried and it was not easy. Michel Hazanavicius

He had recurring roles on such series as Buck Rogers in the 25th Century, Code Red, Off the Rack, Growing Pains, Just the Ten of Us, Now and Again, and several others, including a stint on The Young and the Restless. Haysbert’s recent television work in­ cludes his acclaimed portrayal of Presi­ dent David Palmer on the series 24 for which he was nominated for a Golden Globe Award and twice nominated with his co­stars for the Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series.

In 2002 he won wide acclaim for his portrayal of Raymond Deagan in Todd Haynes’ Far From Heaven in which his performance was lauded by many critics in such publications as The New York Times. Writing for the Chicago Sun­ Times, Roger Ebert said, “Julianne Moore, Dennis Quaid and Dennis

Haysbert are called on to play characters whose instincts are wholly different from their own. By succeeding, they make their characters real, instead of stereotypes.” In The Village Voice, J. Hoberman wrote, “Haysbert … radiates benign serenity and thoughtful self­assurance.” In 2007, Haysbert starred as Nelson Mandela in Goodbye Bafana, which won the Peace Award at the Berlin Film Festival and was nominated for the Golden Bear.

Mary McGuckian, Canada­Ireland / 2011 / HDCam / English

Larry Mullin, Jr.

A superb re-make of Patrick Leconte’s 2002 film, The Man on the Train is a scrumptiously literate character drama. Starring Donald Sutherland and Larry Mullen, Jr., this wellcrafted entertainment’s appeal will be to a mature, intelligent demographic.

Lawrence Joseph Mullen was born and raised in Artane, located the north side of Dublin. He is the drummer in the the rock group U2. His award­winning career includes 22 Grammy Awards, the Rory Gal­ lagher Musician of the Year Award from Hot Press magazine, eight Brit Awards, a Golden Globe award as well as many others from a variety of music magazines, trade publications and music television networks. He was nominated with band mates for an Oscar® in 2003 for "The Hands That Built America," the same song that won the Golden Globe that year. He has also served as a judge for the Shortlist Music Prize. In 2000 he accepted the Freedom of Dublin award, and in doing so is allowed to let his sheep graze on College Green or St. Stephen's Green. He is also exempted from serving as the city coroner or city bailiff, among other benefits. Besides U2, Larry has done some side projects with artists like Nanci Griffith, Daniel Lanois, Emmylou Harris, Robbie Robertson, Paul Brady and B.B. King among others. In honor of the Irish National Football team's bid for the World Cup in 1990, Larry co­wrote and co­produced the anthem "Put 'Em Under Pressure." He also worked with fellow band mate Adam Clayton on the theme to Mission: Impossible for the film's release in 1996. Larry and Adam also teamed up with Mike Mills and Michael Stipe to form the group "Automatic Baby" for Bill Clinton's Presidential Inauguration in 1993 at MTV's Inaugural Ball. Known for his love of Harley Davidson motorcycles, he has driven his Harley from gig to gig in the past, clocking over 10,000 miles on the Zoo TV tour alone. He is also recognized for his fandom for Elvis Presley, fol­ lowing the Irish National Football team, playing pranks on people, as well as stealing the spotlight with a karaoke machine. THE MAN ON THE TRAIN is his debut feature film performance.

In this re-incarnation, Sutherland stars as a retired literature professor, who, in his own parlance, seems cut out of the mold of J. Alfred Prufrock. Throughout his cautious life, he’s been a man who did not “dare to eat a peach.” Refined and restrained, he lives alone in the posh home his mother left him. Amid his books and protected by his reserve, he is, as Eliot’s poem goes, “full of high sentence, but a bit obtuse.” The stale professor, however, is stirred by a chance meeting with his psychological and professional opposite, a laconic criminal (Mullen) who rides into town on a train. This mystery man is in cahoots to rob the local bank, the very day that the Professor is to have heart surgery. Opposites do attract in this witty character study as the Professor takes in the itinerant to stay a few days in his comfy manse.

THE LAST RITES OF JOE MAY chronicles the last days in the life of Joe May, an aging, short money hustler who, despite a life of loss and failure, has always believed that a glorious destiny awaited him. Now in his sixties, his health failing and resources dwindling, Joe is presented with one last shot at greatness... Writer: Joe Maggio / Producers: Bill Straus, Stephanie Striegel / Executive Producer : Tim Evans / Associate Producer: Larry Fessenden / Line Producer: Carrie Holt De Lama / Co­Producer: Terry Kinney / Cinematographer: Jay Silver / Editor: Seth Anderson / Production Designer: Merje Veski / Principal Cast: Dennis Farina, Jamie Anne Allman, Gary Cole, Ian Barford, Meredith Droeger, Chelcie Ross / Contact: Matthew Landers, Tribeca Film, THE DIRECTOR: Wrote & directed VIRGIL BLISS (‘01), MILK AND HONEY (‘03), PAPER COVERS ROCK (‘09), BITTER FEAST (’10) I can’t say specifically where the idea came from that inspired THE LAST RITES OF JOE MAY. That said, there are 3 things I know for sure.


I am also a big Vittorio De Sica fan and I began writing more specific notes for LAST RITES... after seeing UMBERTO D. I’d already made 3 features, but was struggling to pay the rent and keep myself fed. The hero of De Sica’s film had worked hard his entire life and now, in his retirement, when all he wanted was a warm place to sleep, a little food for himself and his dog, and perhaps a kind word – somehow, even this was too much to ask for. During long bouts of self-pity, locked away in my apartment, skillfully avoiding the landlord, I found myself thinking of poor Umberto and how, like him, I seemed thoroughly ill-equipped to survive, let alone succeed.

I began thinking somewhat vaguely about a Joe May kind of character shortly after breaking up with a girl who, in one especially painful moment of the whole extrication process, announced quite coolly and confidently that I would very likely die a broken and lonely old man. This was nearly 20 years prior to writing the screenplay for LAST RITES..., but her words stuck with me, imbedded somewhere in my prefrontal cortex, and over the years I would have many painful imaginings about how her awful prophecy might one day come true, quite a few of which made it onto the screen in Joe’s words and deeds.

And at the risk of turning too publicly confessional, there is quite a lot of my maternal grandfather and his sons in Joe May. The endless optimism in the face of overwhelming odds, the swagger, a few sartorial touches, and most importantly the strict adherence to a code of conduct which, just a generation ago, outlined in precise terms what it meant to be a man. You always pay your debts. You never let anyone know when you’re down and out and no matter how bad things get you keep your shoes shined, your pants pressed and your hair trimmed. If you can’t afford to leave a tip, don’t go into the bar. You wait your turn, with patience and fortitude, because better days will come, eventually. Joe’s trouble isn’t that he fails to live up to this code, it’s that the world has changed and in obeying these rules Joe is, in a sense, holding devalued currency. In this way LAST RITES... is an effort to redeem those men and their ideals, flawed though they may be. And Joe May is nothing if not flawed. I hope that you love him anyway. Joe Maggio


SHOWTIME Tuesday, November 8, 7pm, Cinema Paradiso (Includes Piper Laurie Award Presentation)


PIPER LAURIE TRIBUTE FILM Charles Matthau, USA / 1995 / 107 min / English In a production that gives every evidence of being a labor of love, Truman Capote's 1951 novel ''The Grass Harp'' has been brought to the screen. The result is a success: a sweet, wise, funny, poignant film that rides on a first­rate cast applying its considerable talents to the engaging tale of young Collin Fenwick (Edward Furlong), who comes to live with his spinster cousins in a sleepy Southern town after his mother and father die in swift sequence. It's the era of Glenn Miller and swing, but while war is loom­ ing in the world outside, life there is relatively peaceful. That is, until his cousin Verena Talbo (Sissy Spacek), who owns everything else in town, begins to harbor designs on the dropsy elixir concocted according to a Gypsy recipe by her fey sister, Dolly (Piper Laurie), and their servant, Catherine Creek (Nell Carter), who looks black but insists she's Indian. At that point, Collin, Dolly and Catherine flee to a treehouse in the woods and to fields of windswept grass ­­ the grass harps that carry the voices of the dead, Dolly says ­­ where they gather their herbs. Before long Verena discovers she has been gulled out of her fortune by the slick Morris Ritz (Jack Lemmon) from Chicago. Meanwhile, the sheriff (Joe Don Baker) is sicced on the fugitives in the treehouse and on Sister Ida (Mary Steenburgen), a hip­swinging evangelist who turns up with her 15 children for a tent meeting that very much upsets the town's resident cleric, Reverend Buster (Charles Durning). All of this, of course, is the sub­ ject of considerable tongue­wagging at the barbershop run by Amos Legrand (Roddy McDowall). The gallant who comes to Dolly's defense and rediscovers love in so doing is lonely old Judge Charlie Cool, played by Walter Matthau, whose son Charles directed the film. There is more to ''The Grass Harp'' than the antic comedy that provides its chaos and conflict. Judge Cool isn't the only character who learns something about love and life. There are lessons here, too, for the stern, mercenary Ver­ ena and for young Collin, Capote's alter ego, who, by the film's end, is well equipped to leave for New York to pursue a career as a writer. The performances are uniformly expert, sharp renderings of distinctive individuals. Charles Matthau, who is also among the film's producers, has managed to set them in a landscape specifically distant and atmospheric, but also one where timeless messages speak across the genera­ tions and decades. Lawrence Van Gelder in THE NEW YORK TIMES ``The Grass Harp'' has a soulful sense of simple humanity trying to understand life's mysteries. And in particular, Laurie's portrayal of Dolly is the film's heart -- she brings to it an earthy loveliness that is spellbinding. Peter Stack in The San Francisco Chronicle




Piper Laurie was born in Detroit but moved to Los Angeles at age six. By the time she was 17, she was under contract to Univer­ sal where she was cast in a number of in­ génue roles opposite many of the screen’s most popular leading men. She made her debut in Louisa in which she co­starred with Ronald Reagan and some of her other early films included Francis Goes to the Races with Donald O’Connor*, No Room for the Groom, The Prince Who Was a Thief, Johnny Dark and Son of Ali Baba, all with Tony Curtis*, Has Anybody Seen My Gal? and The Golden Blade with Rock Hudson, The Mississippi Gambler with Tyrone Power, Dangerous Mission with Victor Mature and Vincent Price*, and Smoke Signal with Dana Andrews. By the late 1950s, Laurie began to showcase her diversity as an actress working for director Robert Wise* in Until They Sail, a 1957 production co­starring Joan Fontaine, Jean Simmons, Paul New­ man, and Sandra Dee. Four years later, she gave her most acclaimed film performance to that time, starring as Paul Newman’s crippled girl­ friend in The Hustler for which she earned an Academy Award nomination as Best Actress. In his New York Times review of the film, Bosley Crowther described Piper Laurie’s performance by writing that she, “wrings [her character] into a pathetic and eventually exhausted little rag.” She would go on to earn two more Oscar nominations as Best Sup­ porting Actress for her performance as Sissy Spacek’s mother in Carrie in 1976 and for her work in Children of a Lesser God in 1986. Some of her more recent films include The Grass Harp (1995 FLIFF Best Ac­ tress), The Faculty, Palmer’s Pick Up, and Another Harvest Moon with

She would go on to receive another eight Emmy nominations for such produc­ tions as The Thorn Birds, St. Elsewhere, Frasier, and Twin Peaks, on which she had a recurring role. She won the Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Miniseries or a Special for Promise on the Hallmark Hall of Fame which co­starred James Garner and James Woods.

3:10 TO YUMA


The Great Train Robbery in 1903 established westerns as one of the most durable and popular of all film genres. Columbia’s 3:10 to Yuma, regarded as one of the best westerns to emerge from that studio. Based on Elmore Leonard’s short story, it stars Glenn Ford and Van Heflin and was directed by Delmer Daves. What set Ford’s per­ formance apart in this film was his casting against type as the story’s villain, Ben Wade. Set in 1880’s Arizona Territory, Wade, leader of a gang of outlaws, is captured and must be transported to court on the 3:10 train to Yuma. Desperate for cash, rancher Dan Evans, (Heflin), is paid $200 fee to escort Wade to the train. The well­constructed, suspenseful plot, coupled with the fine acting and direction, makes 3:10 to Yuma stand out among western films. Although Daves had a law degree from Stanford, while in college he was hired as a prop man on The Covered Wagon. By 1957, he was an accomplished screenwriter and director. He wrote 50 screen­ plays, including An Affair to Remember, A Summer Place, Dark Pas­ sage, Petrified Forest, plus musicals of the 1930s: Flirtation Walk and Dames. Daves directed 30 films and worked across a variety of gen­ res including Dark Passage, a film noir classic, Destination Tokyo, a wartime action film, Hollywood Canteen, a musical, and a number of westerns. He continued in westerns with a few films after 3:10 to Yuma, before making a string of highly successful romantic films in­ cluding A Summer Place, Parrish, Susan Slade, and Spencer’s Moun­ tain. At the time of its release in 1957, 3:10 to Yuma was very popular with audiences and highly praised by critics. Variety called the film an “upper drawer western” and praised Glenn Ford by noting, “Ford's switch­casting, as the quietly sinister gang leader, is authoritative, im­ pressive and successful.” Time’s reviewer described the cinematog­ raphy by stating, “The camera keeps a nervous clock watch as the dead­or­alive deadline line approaches—in this case, the arrival of the 3:10 to Yuma.” Sponsored by 22

PETER FORD Discussing his new book about his father GLENN FORD: A LIFE SPECIAL GUEST:

"We are all three people," actor Glenn Ford said in a 1949 interview, "the person we think we are, the person the world thinks we are, and the person we really are." In son Peter Ford’s new biography Glenn Ford: A Life we learn, in dramatic fashion, just how true that statement really is. On screen, in such classic Hollywood films as Gilda, 3:10 to Yuma, The Big Heat, The Rounders, and Blackboard Jungle, the Cana­ dian­born Ford was cast as an “American Everyman,” developing a naturalistic on­screen style that al­ lowed him to effortlessly shift among almost every film genre, from drama to film noir to western to romantic comedy. Following his discovery in theatre, he worked on radio and in television in addition to his exten­ sive film appearances. In the pages of numerous fan maga­ zines he starred, alongside wife, Eleanor Powell (MGM’s “first lady of film dance”), and son, Peter, as part of the “Perfect Family,” a devoted husband and father living the good life in Hollywood’s Golden Age. But behind the scenes, Ford’s personal­ ity and his private life were in stark contrast to his easygoing public persona. Glenn Ford: A Life reveals a driven, dedicated, enormously talented actor whose career spanned seven decades and over 100 film appearances. But it also reveals a man who could be intensely distant to those closest to him, and whose serial philandering (with the likes of Rita Hayworth, Marilyn Monroe, and Judy Garland) led to a series of failed marriages and personal heartache. The result is a moving, nuanced portrait of one of Hollywood’s greatest stars told with the keen insight and unflinching candor that only his son could provide. Growing up as the son of film stars, Peter had the opportunity to meet many legends including Eddie Cantor, Sophie Tucker and Al Jolson, who were regular visitors. One clear memory is of going to “Pickfair” as a child, the social 'watering hole' in those days, “and sitting on Mary Pickford's knee as she told me stories of the days

of yore.” Clark Gable, Bette Davis or Barbara Stanwyck would come to dinner. Neighbor James Mason was often his baby sitter and Char­ lie Chaplin, who lived next door, was not the “Little Tramp” but the villain of Peter’s young life when he accidentally killed Peter’s beloved dog, Bill. In a foot note to Rock and Roll his­ tory, Peter was responsible for the Bill Haley and the Comet’s song “Rock Around the Clock” being used as the theme song of his father’s film, “Blackboard Jungle” in 1955. Musically precocious, young Peter’s record collection and his recommen­ dations were the source that director Richard Brooks used for this MGM film. This song, that Dick Clark dubbed “the national anthem of rock and roll,” ushered in the rock and roll revolution that was to significantly shape American culture. After graduating from college, Peter pursued a career as an actor and singer. Under contract to Capitol Records, Peter was mentored by the incomparable Nat “King” Cole. Later, his single, “Blue Ribbons”, re­ sulted in appearances on many teen music television shows, including American Bandstand, Hullabaloo and Ninth Street West. He eventually formed his own group, The Creations, who appeared in various local clubs, as well as the Whiskey a Go­Go in San Francisco and the El Cortez Club in Las Vegas. Peter appeared in eight movies with his father as well as many other movies, television shows, and stage productions. He eventually left acting and singing and became a licensed contractor and built and re­ modeled homes for many of the most famous people in Hollywood. By the time he retired from building in 1996, his work had been published in architectural magazines across the world. Later, he hosted a successful late­night political talk show on radio. Peter met his wife, Lynda, when they were both students at USC. They have been married for over 40 years and have three children.

In the life of little Gleb everything is fine. In his world there is no fear, everything is calm and harmonious: the pictures in a museums are rough, the snow is prickly, his grandfather is kind and soft. He loves a girl Nastya; they decided to get married, when they grow up. Gleb is blind, and he defines the whole world around him by touch­ ing or based on his grandfather's words. He is told: "You are lucky, Gleb, you cannot see the world around you." And most important, what Gleb keeps in memory from his childhood: "The main thing is not looking; the most important seeing." This is the way Gleb’s child­ hood is passed and suddenly ... he recovers his sight; and the world turns out to be totally different. How will it change the life of the hero? What will be his main goal, when he has seen everything with his own eyes? What will be the finale of this film – the film which is permeated with love and music?

Amal cannot bear to consider the future she faces as a poor woman in Egypt, reflected in the lives of her sister and best friend: one makes grave sacrifices so her son can have a better life, while the other prepares for a surgery to feign her virginity so she can enter into a loveless marriage to an older, wealthy foreigner.

THE DIRECTOR: Richard Warren Rappaport is a BMI­affiliated artist, songwriter and publisher. He has performed his music on television, radio and onstage, and at numerous events in support of the arts, including the Broward Center for the Performing Arts, the Steinway/BMI Music and Arts Showcase series and the ABA Forum on the Entertainment and Sports Industries First Annual International Legal Symposium on the World of Music, Film, Television and Sports. He believes in the importance of ongoing discussions on topics and issues facing the entertainment industry today, and supports the music industry and emerging and established recording artists within it. He is active in civic, community and charitable or­ ganizations in South Florida, New York and Los Angeles. The concept behind the film CONCERT was borne out of a live acoustic solo concert performance. Our purpose was to develop a documentary that addressed the question as to why artists create their works and, in this case, what drives an artist to write a musical composition, whether it is based upon political, social or personal reasons. In this respect, our goal was to provide an introspective and reflective story of the genesis of original music, its importance to the creative process and the significance of the message to be delivered. To accomplish that, we conducted a series of interviews following the concert on why each song was composed and what the artist meant to convey to the listener. In the end, we wanted our audience to understand the texture that lives within a musical composition, the mosaic of stories that unfold in each song, and the artistic relevance of music to our world. We hope that in CONCERT, we’ve accomplished that goal. Richard Warren Rappaport






SHOWTIME Friday, October 28, 8pm, Cinema Paradiso



A tale of competition at its most cut­throat, BUTTER surveys the raw ambition of Laura Pickler (Jennifer Garner), the wife of Bob Pickler (Ty Burrell), Iowa’s long­reigning champion butter carver. For 15 years, Laura has relished her high­profile role as the beautiful, loyal helpmate to her affable, artistically gifted husband. But when Bob is pressured to retire and allow someone else a chance at glory, an in­ dignant Laura decides to enter the competition herself. She is first in line on sign­up day, only to see her odds of victory fall below 100% with the arrival of an unlikely yet formidable contender: 10­year­old Destiny (Yara Shahidi), the African­American foster child of local cou­ ple Julie and Ethan (Alicia Silverstone and Rob Corddry). And that’s not all. Bob’s would­be mistress, bad­girl stripper Brooke (Olivia Wilde) also declares her candidacy, as does his #1 fan, Carol­Ann (Kristen Schaal).


Facing three opponents, mocked by her stepdaughter Kaitlen (Ashley Greene) and furious with her husband, Laura resolves to do whatever it takes to win. And if that means resorting to sabotage – and recruiting her dim­witted former boyfriend Boyd (Hugh Jackman) as a co­conspirator – then so be it. In the tradition of BEST IN SHOW and ELECTION, BUTTER can be enjoyed as a straightforward, albeit merrily twisted, comedy about American life and culture. But Laura Pickler probably wouldn’t be surprised if the liberal media views BUTTER as a veiled commentary on the larger world of politics.

SHOWTIME SOUTHEAST PREMIERE Saturday, January 21, 5pm, Morgan Neville EAST COAST PREMIERE Crisp­Ellert St Augustine USA / 2008 / 86 min / DVD / English WORLD PREMIERE THE COOL SCHOOL is an abject lesson in how to build an art scene from UNITED STATES scratch and what to avoid inPREMIERE the process. The film focuses on the seminal Ferus Gallery, which groomed the LA art scene from a loose band of idealistic FLORIDA PREMIERE beatniks into a coterie of competitive, often brilliant artists, including Ed Kien­ FESTIVAL holz, Ed Ruscha,WINNERS Craig Kauffman, Wallace Berman, Ed Moses and Robert Irwin. The Ferus also served as launching point for New York imports, Andy Warhol (hosting his first Soup Can show), Jasper Johns, and Roy Lichten­ stein, as well as leading to the first Pop Art show and Marcel Duchamp's first retrospective. What was lost and gained is tied up in a complex web of egos, passions, money, and art. This is how LA came of age. Writers: Kristine McKenna, Morgan Neville / Featuring: Jeff Bridges (narrator) Irving Blum, Walter Hopps, Ed Ruscha, Frank Gehry, Dennis Hopper, Ed Kien­ holz, Billy Al Bengston, John Baldessari, Dean Stockwell, Larry Bell, Ken Price THE DIRECTOR: Morgan Neville is an award­winning documentary film­ maker who specializes in history and cultural subjects. Through a series of films on important music subjects (including The Brill Building, Sam Phillips and Sun Records, Nat King Cole, Brian Wilson, Leiber & Stoller, The High­ waymen and Burt Bacharach), Neville has documented stories of songwrit­ ers and producers who helped shape 20th­century music, including the Grammy­nominated Muddy Waters Can't Be Satisfied and the Emmy­win­ ning Hank Williams: Honky Tonk Blues, both of which aired on PBS’s Amer­ ican Masters series as well as Channel 4/UK and the BBC’s Arena series.


David Cronenberg, France­Ireland­United Kingdom­Germany­Canada / 2011 / 93 min / English For his third consecutive collaboration with Viggo Mortensen, David Cronenberg adapts Christopher Hampton's 2002 stage play concerning the turbulent relationship between Carl Jung (Michael Fassbender) and his mentor Sigmund Freud (Mortensen) as they struggle to treat a troubled patient (Keira Knightley). Producers: Jeremy Thomas, Marco Mehlitz, Martin Katz / Screenplay: Christopher Hampton, based on "A Most Dangerous Method" by John Kerr / Cinematography: Peter Suschitzky, ASC / Editor: Ronald Sanders, CCE, ACE / Principal Cast: Viggo Mortensen, Michael Fassbender, Keira Knightley, Sarah Gadon, Vincent Cassel / Contact: Sony Pictures Classics

THE DIRECTOR: David Cronenberg (born March 15, 1943) is a Canadian filmmaker, screenwriter and actor. He is one of the principal originators of what is commonly known as the body horror or venereal horror genre. This style of filmmaking explores people's fears of bodily transformation and infection. In his films, the psychological is typically intertwined with the physical. In the first half of his career, he explored these themes mostly through horror and science fiction, although his work has since expanded beyond these genres. He has been called "the most audacious and chal­ lenging narrative director in the English­speaking world." After two short sketch films and two short art­house features (the black and white Stereo and the colour Crimes of the Future) Cronenberg went into partnership with Ivan Reitman. The Canadian government provided financing for his films through the 1970s. He alternated his signature "body horror" films such as Shivers with projects reflecting his interest in car racing and bike gangs. Rabid exploited the unexpected acting talents of pornographic actress Marilyn Chambers (Cronenberg's first choice was a young, then­unknown Sissy Spacek). Rabid was a breakthrough with international distributors and his next two horror features gained stronger support. Over the arc of his career, Cronenberg's films follow a definite progression, a movement from the social world to the inner life. In his early films, scientists modify human bodies, which results in the breakdown of social order (e.g. Shivers, Rabid). In his middle period, the chaos wrought by the scientist is more personal, (e.g. The Brood, Scanners, Videodrome). In the later period, the scientist himself is altered by his experiment (e.g. his remake of The Fly). This trajectory culminates in Dead Ringers in which a twin pair of gynecologists spiral into codependency and drug addiction. His later films tend more to the psychological, often contrasting subjective and objective realities (eXistenZ, M. Butterfly, Spider).

Prashant Nair, INDIA / 2011 / 88 min / English & /Hindi w/English subtitles When the money of an idealistic British traveler disappears in a nouveau­riche Delhi home, the staff of the house are blamed and given twenty­four hours to replace it or face the consequences. The film moves sweetly between the upper middle class country clubesque family with varying degrees of indifference, to their servants that fear for their jobs constantly, to the privileged twenty­something British tourist who yearns to show compassion but is hesitant due to the com­ plexities of custom. Throughout it all there is comedy and a richness of discovery making DELHI IN A DAY a sensory treat.

THE DIRECTORS: As children, the Pierce brothers watched as their father worked from their basement on the special effects of the orig­ inal EVIL DEAD alongside Sam Raimi. Growing up amid the “EVIL DEAD’ crew put the bug in them, they knew they’re was only one di­ rection they wanted to go, and that was behind the camera.After years of working on various production jobs in film and television in Los Angeles the brothers opted to write and direct their own feature.

“In a world of putrid zombie movies, DEADHEADS is a breath of fresh air”, says horror icon Bruce Campbell about the debut feature from the sons of Bart Pierce, the special effects photographer on the classic EVIL DEAD. A return to 1980s’ style comedy­adventure movies like BACK TO THE FUTURE and THE GOONIES, the Pierce Brothers’ win­ ning combo of gory horror action, smart humour and heartfelt emotion follows zombie slackers Mike and Brent as they travel across country to find the former’s old girlfriend and love of his life. But will those nasty bounty­hunting agents with a secret agenda catch them before they do? As a zombieland Abbott and Costello, actors Michael McKiddy and Ross Kidder’s chemistry and timing are superb. And you’ll just love Markus Taylor as the lumbering Cheese in this Road Trip of the Living Dead that’s hilarious and surprisingly sweet.

Life was easy for Jackson White. With looks, brains, and athletic abil­ ity, the world's possibilities seemed limitless. But, when he came to Los Angeles to pursue a career in the music industry, he was so se­ duced by money and status that he lost track of who he was. Now, with both his personal and professional lives on the edge of ruin, he's been called home to care for his dying father. While in North Carolina, he'll have to confront the friends he lost touch with and the girl he never met.

The only film you can step in, 'Dog Poo ­ the truth at last' is the first feature film that gets down with doggies poo poo. Shot in 8 countries, the secret life of dog poop is brought out in glorious detail. From Harvey Milk's pooper scooping laws in San Francisco and onto poo detection in the outback of Australia, the truth about poop comes to the surface: Poo causes blindness and a higher chance of epilepsy and asthma due to the worm it contains.

12% of children have had this worm from contact with dog poop. 80 million poos a day in the US to scoop. Strap in and come on a surprising brown journey … you will never walk past a doo doo again the same way.

THE DIRECTOR: Working over the last two years on several shorts, James Boldiston, with a degree in Indian religion and a certified IT engineer, moved onto his first doco feature by accident: he stepped in it. – literally and while walking his dog. After placing a sneaker in a dog pile the idea of a film covering the secret life of poop took place. While running his iPad/iPhone app studio that specialises in film related delivery to pay the bills, the first dog poo documentary shaped up.

Travelling around the world in 2010, careful research discovered the cutting edge of poop. It wasn't easy and while filming poo in England, he was issued with a summons for being a suspicious person. The rubber poo on the pavement had been mistaken for a terrorist act.

Peter Palin and Linda Bolitho

Classical Music. It’s In Our Nature.

Dog Poo is funny. I don't know why but it is. Travel to 8 countries seeking legal/science and social impacts of poo and everyday is hysterical.

Just like all of us, classical music lives and breathes. Make it part of your lifestyle. Tune to Classical South Florida on the radio or online. It’s in your nature.

Dog Poo is also tragic. 40% of kids in Sri Lanka's rural belt have been exposed to the common worm in poop. Get the worm, you are 3 times more likely to have epilepsy and asthma. It's not only developing countries. 12% of kid's in the USA have had it or have the worm too. In England, two weeks after I arrived a little girl in Manchester was blinded by dog waste after she fell over in it. I interviewed her mother: she was angry … and this is a not a rare occurrence.


I had no idea. I had no clue the film would grow and grow to become a feature. I thought dog poop in detail would be a short little doco. Research proved me wrong. The more I dug into poop(!) it became apparent the story was vast and surprisingly serious and funny.

I had no idea that the film would discover an non-described epidemic. On the great and good side, this is one problem we can fix and for a change we can make a difference in an instant: scoop poop and worm your dog. James Boldiston

Peter Langone & StudioOne THE DIRECTORS: Matt Jespersen and Maclain Nelson met while attending Brigham Young Univer­ sity in 2002. They became friends while performing with an improv group. Matt since earned an MFA from the University of Miami. His short film, "I'm Pretty, Too" won the best film at the Cannes Film Festival and appeared at the CineVegas Film Festival and several others. Maclain has been involved in several films including , "Moving McAllister", "ORCS!", and "The Sinking of Santa Isabel". After years of working on their own, Maclain and Matt teamed up to write and direct their first feature, "Dr. Limptooth". Vampires in the pop culture of today are typically portrayed as strong, sexy and dominant predators. We thought it would be interesting to explore the world of a vampire that is a bit depressed, who had lost his "mojo", who wasn't on the top of the food chain. We wanted to see a vampire who feels a little more like a human. This is the idea that "Dr. Limptooth" came from. We hope this film serves a fresh take on the genre and will be the first of many films from us in the future. Most of all, we hope this film makes you laugh. Thank you.

Directed by Michael Rymer, Not rated / 80 minutes / English Closing night film: Interactive web Q&A with Director facilitated by composer Richard Gibbs From Australia’s most acclaimed playwright, David Williamson, a moving and powerful new film about lies, betrayal, sex and bullying in the workplace. A young construction worker rams in to the back of his boss’s Jaguar in a fit of anger at being sacked. Rather than fronting court, he’s given the chance to explain his actions in a community con­ ference. This face­to­face confrontation between the young man, his boss, his boss’s wife, co­workers, best mate and mother lifts the lid not only on his dysfunctional life but on their workplace dirty laundry, turning all of their lives upside down. Face to Face stars a stellar ensemble cast led by Vince Colosimo, Sigrid Thornton and Luke Ford.


RED DESERT (1964) Not Rated / 120 minutes / French With Subtitles Red Desert (Il Deserto Rosso) combines the considerable talents of director Michelangelo Antonioni and star Monica Vitti. Cast as Giuliana, an unhappy wife, Vitti suffers from an unnamed form of de­ pression and malaise. Her quicksilver emotional shifts disturb everyone around her, but they, like she, pretend that nothing is truly wrong. British engineer Corrado Zeller (Richard Harris) seems to understand what Giuliana is really after in life, and he acts upon it by entering into an affair with the troubled woman. Giuliana eventually comes to terms with her physical and mental pain, but this hardly means that she's "cured" in the conventional sense. Monica Vitti's sense of isolation is height­ ened by Antonioni's (and cinematographer Carlo DiPalma's) choice of colors, and especially by Carlo Savina's bizarre electronic musical score. This is a landmark movie in Antonioni's effort to portray alienated individuals in contemporary life; he places people against towering forms of tech­ nology to emphasize their smallness and lostness in the modern world of technological change.

3 directed by Tom Tykwer, Not Rated / 119 minutes / German w/subtitles Hannah and Simon have been a couple for 20 years. They live in Berlin, side by side in combative harmony. They are attractive, modern, mature, childless, cultivated, down­to­earth. Affairs, wanting children, moving in together, miscarriage, fleeing and returning; this anchorwoman and art techni­ cian have put a lot behind them, but they don’t have so much ahead of them anymore. That is until both, without knowing about the other’s actions, fall in love with the same man, Adam. Strand Re­ leasing.

Bess, a rebellious trailer park teen, has just lost her mother. With only a faded photograph and scribbled address in hand, she decides to seek out her father, a man she’s never known.

RICHARD GIBBS Sunday Nov. 13, 12:30 pm ­ DBNJ What do the Simpsons, Battlestar Galactica, The Muppets, Korn, Robert Palmer and Dr. Dolittle have in common? Richard Gibbs, com­ poser, producer and musical innovator. The 60+ feature films he has scored have cumulatively grossed well over 1 billion dollars in global box office while benefiting from his free­ thinking compositions. His heart­crushing, epic score for Queen of the Damned, written and produced in collaboration with Korn lead singer Jonathan Davis, combined a non­traditional 105 piece symphonic or­ chestra with head­banging guitars and songs of otherworldly vampiric beauty. Gibbs’ reinvention of the musical sounds of space helped pro­ pel the re­imagined Battlestar Galactica series to huge commercial and critical success. He set the sound for the Simpsons, scoring the first season of that groundbreaking series. As a session keyboardist Gibbs has recorded with Robert Palmer, Tom Waits, Melissa Etheridge and War, amongst hundreds of others. He performed live with Korn, Chaka Khan, Tom Jones and was the key­ boardist for the seminal L.A. band, Oingo Boingo. Other film and tele­ vision scoring highlights on his lengthy resume include Step Into Liquid, The Tracy Ullman Show, 10 Things I Hate About You and Say Anything. Woodshed Recording, Gibbs’ beyond state of the art recording studio overlooking the Pacific in Malibu, has rewritten the rules for studio con­ struction. This incredibly beautiful creative environment has attracted the likes of Sting, Pink, Cher and Lenny Kravitz. Occasionally, Gibbs finds time to produce records for artists such as Korn, Richard Page, and Eisley. He can also be found roiling the waters as an activist for intellectual property rights, with appearances on the Al Jazeera net­ work, in the pages of the Christian Science Monitor, and on various panels across the country.

The story of this little­known pioneer culture dates back to 1521, when Spanish explorer Juan Ponce de Leon landed in what is now Florida and introduced the first cattle and horses into North America. In the decades that followed, additional settlers from Spain continued to arrive, establishing missions and cattle ranches and thus giving rise to the first cowboys and cattle industry in America. In the early 1800s settlers of mainly Celtic and British descent began moving into Florida, rounding up the Spanish cattle and horses that had thrived in Florida’s unique environment and establishing cattle operations of their own. Some descendants of these early pioneering families still play a major role in Florida’s cattle industry to this day, working the land and raising the cattle that their families have owned for generations.


Producers: Rob & Susan James, Diana Michie / Camera & Editor: John Michie / Contact: http://flori­ THE DIRECTOR: John F. Michie was born 1974 in New York. As a teenager Michie was heavily influenced by music, and throughout the late 80s and 90s he explored his creativity by working as a DJ. Michie attended The Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale, graduating in 1998. Michie made his first short Secret Santa in 2002, then co­directed another 8­minute short drama called Intersect in 2005. Michie also has over 13 years of expe­ rience in the television industry, working for networks such as HBO, MTV and Discovery Channel. In 2007 Michie created his own production company, called Like This ( Florida Crackers, the Cattlemen and Cowboys of Florida is Like This’ first major production and Michie’s first full­length movie. Our crew was small, our money was tight but we accomplished a lot. Our team deliberately created an almost-invisible presence during production so we were able to capture real people at their most authentic. Our editing approach was to let them tell their own story throughout the movie and we feel that is why the message of Florida Crackers is so powerful, because it comes from the hearts of the subjects. We captured over 180 hours of HD footage, and scanned hundreds of photographs, copied video tapes and 8mm home movies to create the 87 minutes in the documentary. We shot for about 2 years on and off, and editing took about a year working part-time. I wouldn’t trade the experience for anything. It was a journey through parts of Florida that I have never seen, yet instantly fell in love with and it was a great learning experience for someone who grew up in suburbia and had very little prior knowledge of the Cracker culture or Florida’s cowboy history.

The article ranked the United States down at number 23 on its list of happiest countries. Shadyac, himself dissatisfied with his luxurious Beverly Hills lifestyle, suggested the two collaborate on a documen­ tary investigating the sources of genuine human hap­ piness. How can America be one of the richest countries in the world and nowhere near the happiest?

Writer: Roko Belic / Producers: Frances Reid, Eiji Han Shimizu, Bhagyashree RaoRane, Adrian Belic / Cinematography: Roko Belic, Frances Reid, Adrian Belic / Contact: Wadi Rum Films, Malibu, CA THE DIRECTOR: Hailing from the foothills of the Appalachians, not far from Dollywood, John has been a fan of country, bluegrass and roots music since he was knee­high to a grasshopper. And tackling the epic sprawl of a cross­country road­trip documentary for his first feature was a thrill since it centered on the incomparable Ms. Dolly Parton.

THE DIRECTOR: An Academy Award nominee and Sundance Award winner, Roko Belic was born to Czechoslovak and Yugoslav parents in America. In 1996 he founded the film production company Wadi Rum with his brother Adrian. His directorial debut, Genghis Blues (1999), which the brothers shot using home video cameras, was nominated for an Academy Award for best documentary feature. Roko’s multinational upbringing, together with his mother’s encourage­ ment to explore the world through television documentaries, set the foundation for his passion and vision as a filmmaker. Belic has worked in numerous capacities during his career, including director of photography, editor, writer, producer and director. He recently directed a 44‐minute documentary called Dreams: Cinema of the Subconscious, for the Blu‐Ray disc of the Hollywood feature film Inception. Belic's upcoming feature project, Twilight Men, tells the story of an American seeker and an Indian holy man who journey into the Himalayas in search of an enlightened master.


As owner of the LA­based production company, Bloodrush Films, John has been responsible for directing and editing numerous pilot presentations, music videos, EPK’s and web series. Sought by many of the nations top media producers, Bloodrush Films is known specifically for its ability to bring new and innovative ideas for film, television and web to life. Clients hire Bloodrush for their ability to creatively turn abstract concepts into successful reality shows, sizzle reels, and opening sequences. They count among their clients some of North America’s top producers and media outlets. I approach nearly all of my work from a musical perspective, assembling a sound-track first, and then building the sequences on top of the music. And with H2D I took that one step further and actually shaped it as if it were a musical. It’s almost entirely scored, and the rhythms and pacing of the actual songs are meant to feel as if you’re watching a musical, highlighting emotional moments in a way that dialogue can’t express and pushing the story forward in leaps and bounds. Thankfully her catalog is vast and there really does seem to be a song for just about any situation that comes along. John Lavin

Homecoming is a film made up of mildly manic and often amusing set pieces that move us around its multiple locations with a steady rhythm, focusing alternately on one family member or another. There is of course a sense of urgency, especially in the case of Paul – whose life is literally on the line. There isn’t any overarching logic to the narrative, but then again, family portraits rarely look like mathematical equations. The point is to keep things consistently light, melancholic and moving without descending into pathos and frivolity. Paul was always a substitute for myself. Part of the reason I made this movie was to answer questions I had become inept at answering in my real life. Do I feel at home anywhere? What is a home? What is a brother? How are we perceived by immediate family members when we've come to separate ourselves from them? Learning how to see ourselves as others do is what makes us self-conscious. It gives us a soul. And so Homecoming became a way for me to picture myself through other imaginary characters. Call it narcissism, egotism, or plain old art -- I found the entire process to be very cathartic and helpful, and in the end, I discovered that you are always a different person, not matter how much you try to create yourself. Lorian James

untold story of Nobel Peace Prize nominee Gene Sharp, the world's leading expert on non­violent revo­ lution. This new film (from first time director Ruaridh Arrow) reveals how Gene's work has given a new gen­ eration of revolutionary leaders the weapons needed to overthrow dictators. It shows how his 198 steps to non­ violent regime change have inspired uprisings from Serbia to Ukraine and from Egypt to Syria and how his work has spread across the globe in an unstoppable wave of profound democratic change. How To Start A Revolution is the story of the power of people to change their world, the modern revolution and the man behind it all. Writer: Ruaridh Arrow / Producer: Richard Shaw / Editor: Mike Crozier / Cinematographer: Philip Bloom / Principal Cast: Gene Sharp, Robert Helvey, Jamila Raqib / Con­ tact: Richard Shaw, Lion Television, 26 Paddenswick Road, London UK W6 OUB.

Paolo Genovese Italy / 2011 / 108 min / Italian w/English sub­titles

THE DIRECTOR: Ruaridh Arrow trained as a newspaper journalist before moving to Sky News as a producer and then to Channel 4’s Dispatches programme. He has also produced programmes for BBC News, More4 News and The Financial Times. While filming in Cairo he reported for the BBC from Tahrir Square during the Egyptian revolution. Gene Sharp is the world's foremost expert on non­violent revolution. As Slobodan Milosevic in Serbia and Viktor Yanukovych in Ukraine fell to the colour revolutions which swept across Eastern Europe, each of the democratic movements paid tribute to Sharp's contribution, and his small hand­ book "From Dictatorship to Democracy". His central message is that the power of dictatorships comes from the willing obedience of the people they govern ­ and that if the people can de­ velop techniques of withholding their consent, a regime will crumble. Gene’s writing has helped millions of people around the world achieve their freedom without violence. "As soon as you choose to fight with violence you're choosing to fight against your opponents best weapons and you have to be smarter than that," he insists. To do this Sharp provides a list of 198 "non­violent weapons", ranging from the use of colours and symbols to mock funerals and boycotts. Designed to be the direct equivalent of military weapons, they are techniques col­ lated from a forensic study of defiance to tyranny throughout history. In 2009 I began filming this documentary following the impact of Sharp's work across four continents talking to journalists, experts and revolutionaries and eventually to Tahrir Square where I slept alongside protesters who read his work by torchlight in the shadow of tanks. What I uncovered during this two year project was a small group of people known as the world leaders in teaching nonviolent resistance. This group provides advice to hundreds of revolutionaries living under the most extreme dictatorships from Burma to Iran and North Korea. The result is the first film ever to bring together leaders from the most significant revolutions in the past decade to tell the story of how you start a revolution and bring down a dictator. Ruaridh Arrow


Giorgio, Lorenzo, Piero, Luisa, Virgilio, Francesca: what do these 38­year­olds have in common? Twenty years ago they were classmates, but above all they were friends, they were a group. Then something happened and the group broke up. Soon they’ll become a group again, at least for a few days: the Ministry of Education has annulled their high school graduation exams and they’ll have to take them again, or witness the annulment of all qualifications acquired thereafter. And so, with a few more wrinkles and a little less hair, we’ll see them together again, like old times. With the desire to savor again the taste of youth, but with a greater or lesser awareness that that period has ended. Join us for a brilliant sentimental comedy that leads a generation to measure itself with lives, which, after twenty years, have gone in all direc­ tions, and with them, so have dreams and illusions.

Through our partnership with them, and Gregory’s herculean efforts, we are able to present a world class Festival in our beautiful home, Amelia Island. Bringing FLIFF on Location to Amelia Island has enabled us to Fast Track our Festival and take advantage of many benefits that a seasoned festival has to offer. Due to this synergy, The Fernandina Film International Film Festival will showcase a very strong line-up of films from all over the world. This will be a most welcome treasure trove, a window to the universe of avid film-goers, given the scant distribution of films that make it to Amelia Island. I am indeed proud of our programming, and the parties and seminars we have scheduled. So come and join us as we spend ten glorious days basking in all things film!

“Jessie’s Dad” tells the story of Mark Lunsford’s transformation from an uneducated truck driver to a savvy activist after losing his 9­year­old daughter to a convicted pedophile. A blue­collar “Mr. Smith Goes to Washington,” “Jessie’s Dad” follows Mark as he visits Capitol Hill and state capitals to urge lawmakers to wise up and crack down on child predators. The film offers a behind­the­scenes look at a single father haunted by the knowledge that a child molester held his daughter within an earshot for three days. Mark channels his anger toward making a difference for all American children, pushing for the passage of Jessie’s Law, which toughens penalties against sex offenders. Recently named Best Documentary at the ITN Distribution Film & New Media Festival in Los Angeles, the film is also the winner of the Direct Cinema Outstanding Documentary Award, the CINE Special Jury Award, and a finalist for the Interna­ tional Documentary Association’s David L. Wolper Award. “Jessie’s Dad” explores the public and private personas of a complex, candid and controversial character.

More than 50 years ago, the islands of the Bahamas were being sold to wealthy individuals. The fisheries were endangered, flamingos were being hunted to near extinction, forests were cut down, and the fisheries were being depleted. Because of educational efforts by concerned citizens and volunteers that pressured the government, a non­governmental organization, the Bahamas National Trust was formed that has created 26 national parks on 1 million acres of land and sea to protect all their marine and island species. This documentary shows the results of Bahamians’ conservation efforts­from the rich forests that shelter parrots and crabs, to the colorful reefs that nurture fish, turtles and other natural wonders.

When I started documenting Mark Lunsford’s transformation from an uneducated truck driver to an effec­ tive child­protection activist in 2007, I anticipated an emotionally grueling journey, but I had no idea how much controversy I’d capture.

Director’s Notes: This was a 3 year production effort, a cooperative effort between the Bahamas Na­ tional Trust and other Bahamian conservation groups to show not only the beauty and wildlife diversity of the Bahamas islands, but also ongoing efforts to study, educate and protect these species, whether they be flamingos, turtles, parrots, conch, lobster, crab, grouper, for the benefit of Bahamians and vis­ itors in the future. We especially hope this film will inspire others around the world to take better care of the natural resources that rely on for our own survival, since earth itself is just an island in space.


The film reveals a single father running into walls of distrust and antagonism. Frankly, I’m puzzled by the controversy that surrounds Mark. When you’re with him day and night – and I’m talking long days and late nights – you realize how obsessed he is with one thing: making the world a safer place for kids. So when people draw misinformed conclusions about his mission, I’m dumbfounded. My biggest hope is that ‘Jessie’s Dad’ stimulates discussion about the issues it raises. They’re complicated and have no simple answers. I’m looking to help open people’s eyes, not tell them what to think.

WORLD PREMIERE Scott Cardinal, USA / 2011 PREMIERE / 108 min / English UNITED STATES It is reasonable to assume that, throughout the world, TV FLORIDA PREMIERE viewers of all ages have seen at least one or more of the hun­ FESTIVAL WINNERS dreds of TV shows and movies that Ivan Tors wrote, Pro­ duced and/or Directed. At the peak of his fame, and for years after, the name Ivan Tors’ was associated with animals, sci­ ence drama, and adventure. Tors was the brilliant Creator of SCIENCE FICTION THEATER, which was the world’s first successful syndicated TV series. The program concentrated on such concepts as space flight, robots, telepathy, flying saucers, time travel, and the intervention of ex­ traterrestrials in human affairs. In 1958 Ivan Tors Created and Produced Sea Hunt which was the first television series that centered on underwater adventures and brought skin diving to the public's attention and inspired incredible interest in the sport. Ivan also Created and Produced feature films and TV shows with such memorable titles as: FLIPPER, GENTLE GIANT, DAKTARI, A COWBOY IN AFRICA, CLARENCE THE CROSS­ EYED LION, NAMU THE KILLER WHALE, and HELLO DOWN THERE (about a family living in an underwater home), and more. As a result, Tors carved a special niche for himself in the history of Hollywood cinema. Africa, USA, the largest animal location site, was one of Ivan’s enterprises, as well as the IVAN TORS STUDIOS in Miami. This facility firmly established the film industry in South Florida. “The Legend Of Ivan Tors” showcases the incredible career of this screenwriter at Columbia Pictures who became an anti­vi­ olence and animal rights maverick, zoologist, and adventurer. He also almost single­handedly established the South Florida film industry and changed the way non­human animals were treated in the entertainment industry. While doing so, he became a leading producer of successful family films and TV programs which marked a specific Tors’ style which reflected his sense of mission that traded sex and violence in film and TV for whole­ some entertainment that also dramatically argued the case for wildlife conservation, compassion for all animals, and a wide range of humanistic causes.

SOUTHEAST PREMIERE Mike Dorsey EAST COAST PREMIERE USA / 2011 / 117 min / HDCam / WORLD PREMIERE English Lost Airmen ofSTATES BuchenwaldPREMIERE is a doc­ UNITED umentary that chronicles the little­ FLORIDA known story PREMIERE of Allied airmen imprisoned at theWINNERS Buchenwald Con­ FESTIVAL centration Camp in the waning months of World War II. Hearing the stories of the heroes that lived it, from their own lips is fascinating.

In the summer of 1944, 168 airmen from the US, England, Canada and other Allied countries were captured in Paris by the German Gestapo and sent to the infamous "Koncen­ tration Lager Buchenwald" in Ger­ many. Falsely accused of being "terrorists and saboteurs," the air­ men faced a terrifying fight for sur­ vival and a race against time to escape their execution. A controversial moment in history that their home countries tried to hush­up, Lost Airmen of Buchenwald tells this harrowing story through interviews with seven surviving members of the group, including their heroic commanding officer. The film follows them from their days hiding with the French Resistance to the darkest corners of the Holocaust, where they struggled to survive as Germany collapsed under the weight of the advancing Russian and Allied armies.

THE DIRECTOR; Mike Dorsey is the Senior Director of Production & Programming for the Outdoor Channel, where he oversees production of the network's original programming slate. As a filmmaker, Dorsey produced, directed and edited two documentaries, The Six Degrees of Helter Skelter, retracing the footsteps of members of the Manson Family during their infamous summer of murder in 1969, and one on Hollywood history titled Dearly Departed. Most aren't aware that Allied military officers were imprisoned inside some of Germany's most notorious concentration camps. However, I grew up with the story about the airmen in Buchenwald because one of their members was a pilot named E.C. "Easy" Freeman, my grandfather. Over the years, his story would unfold in bits and pieces, over a bottle of wine or during a commercial while watching baseball on TV. I came to realized the true uniqueness of what happened to my grandfather and the rest of the 168 Allied airmen in Buchenwald, and why their story was such an important one to tell. Their rights under the Geneva Convention were sidelined on a technicality: according to the Gestapo, they were hiding with French Resistance groups when they were arrested, and no longer deserved recognition as POWs. As military officers, they gained a unique perspective for a story more commonly told from the vantage point of the civilian prisoners. Back home, their countrymen refused to believe their stories. In short time, most of them learned not to talk about it. As P-38 fighter pilot Joe Moser recalled, his silence would last for nearly 40-years -even his own children didn't know what he had been through. Every airman we interviewed held a different piece of the puzzle revealing why their group was sent to Buchenwald and how they were able to survive. The more we dug, the more incredible the story became. They fought-off disease and formed alliances with Buchenwald's underground groups. They plotted uprisings and kept each other alive. Mike Dorsey


THE DIRECTOR: Guy Nattiv was born in 1973 in Tel Aviv, Israel, where he currently resides. He graduated from the film & television department of the «Camera Obscura» School of Arts, Tel Aviv in 2002. His films, MABUL (short), Strangers & Offside (co­written & co­directed with Erez Tadmor) have received over 20 awards at international film festivals including The Crystal Bear at Berlin and Best Short at Sundance. His debut film, Strangers (co­written & co­directed with Erez Tadmor), has won international acclaim and par­ ticipated in the 2008 official selection competition at Sundance Film Festival, Tribeca and others. MABUL won Best Film at the Haifa International Film Festival and an Israeli Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor. He is currently preparing his third feature Son of God (with co­director Erez Tadmor) to be shot in Poland in 2011. We have the biblical «Tale of Noah» that our story is constantly connecting and disconnecting from. MABUL contains many of the original story ingredients for this tale, but it reverses their meaning and morals; our righteous man is autistic, our animals are worms and ants, our boat is a dangerous trap instead of a rescue and our sinners aren’t punished, but get a chance for forgiveness. Our family is indeed trapped on a rickety boat, floating on stormy waters, but it is saved only after it nearly drowns. Noa Berman­Herzberg & Guy Nattiv

Sean Durkin, USA / 2011 / 120 min / 35mm / English Gemma Atwal India­UK­USA / 2010 / 99 min / HDCam / English & Oriyan w/English sub­titles This dynamic epic follows four­year­old Budhia, rescued from poverty by Biranchi Das, a larger­than­life judo coach and operator of an or­ phanage for slum children in the eastern Indian state of Orissa. When Budhia displays an uncommon talent for long­distance running, Biranchi nurtures his gift, heralding him as a folk hero for the impoverished masses, and maybe even for India itself. But after golden child Budhia breaks down during a world­record 65 kilometer run at the age of four, public opinion begins to turn on the guru and his disciple, and soon the two are swept up in a maelstrom of media controversy and political scandal. Following Budhia's roller­coaster journey over five years, Marathon Boy is a Dickensian tale of greed, corruption, and broken dreams set be­ tween the heart­racing world of marathon running, the poverty­stricken slums, and the political intrigue of a modernizing India. Nothing is what it seems in Budhia and Biranchi's riveting story, and Atwal continually shifts viewer identification to tell both a shocking story of opportunism and exploitation, but also a touching portrait of an authentic bond between a parent and child.

MARTHA MARCY MAY MARLENE stars Elizabeth Olsen as Martha, a damaged woman haunted by painful memories and increasing paranoia, who struggles to re­assimilate with her family after fleeing a cult. MARTHA MARCY MAY MARLENE begins with the title character Martha’s escape from a cult; the audience isn’t given any information about this. We simply see her sneak out of a house, but we can tell that something is amiss there. The house looks to be in a rural area, and we can clearly see the room she got out from is full of women sleeping in the same area. Once Martha has managed to get away, she is reunited with her sister. This is where things start to become worrisome, as Martha fears for her safety and she recalls the past two years of her life within the cult. This film completely floored me, as it did with the entire Melbourne Film Festival audience. Normally, films get some sort of reaction at a film festival, applause or a round of boo’s. MARTHA MARCY MAY MARLENE got neither, the entire audience sat silently as the credits rolled and no one really began to move for quite some time. This is the power of the film, one so realistic, and one so shocking and engaging, that you don’t want it to end. Then when it does, you just want to hit the rewind button, see it again and ponder the film all over again.

Won for Best Director for MARTHA MARCY MAY MARLENE at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival. “Elizabeth Olsen stars as the multi-named lead," blogs Mark Elijah Rosenberg for Rooftop Films. "In a curious parallel, Olsen also stars in another Sundance selection, Silent House, there also playing a dangerously disturbed woman. The actress has the unsettling ability to appear one second as an adult seductress, a flash later as an innocent child — fitting for these two films about sexual power dynamics and psychology. Like Silent House, MMMM is stylistically ingenious and genuinely frightening, but Durkin's film also delves into profound philosophical inquiry." "Olsen has an instant screen charisma and it's hard to not see her joining Jennifer Lawrence and Carey Mulligan as the industry's favorite new ingenues," suggests Gregory Ellwood at HitFix. "Olsen ably juggles this tricky role, which depends so heavily on the character's between-the-lines personal history," agrees Variety's Peter Debruge. "The younger sibling of the millionaire Olsen twins, she has Maggie Gyllenhaal's soulful ease and saucer eyes, as well as Angelina Jolie's husky voice and bee-stung lips. Among the other cast members, Funny Games star Brady Corbet (a creepy carryover from the short) continues his drift to the dark side."

Mary just broke her leg while down hill skiing and Bill, who smoked for 45 years, is recovering from a heart attack. Despite these physical ailments, both decide to train and com­ pete in their respective events. Mary hopes to com­ plete the Lifetime Fitness triathlon and Bill will attempt to win the National Senior Olympics.

THE DIRECTOR: Andrew Napier is a 22­year­old film­ maker and a director/producer for the popular online news and entertainment show, The Young Turks. Filmmaking captured his heart at the age of nine when he learned how to edit video on his home computer. Through middle school and high school Andrew ran a video production business, but ultimately became more interested in story telling. At 17, as a senior in high school, Andrew began filming Mary Stroebe and Bill Wambach. For three years he followed them around in order to document their extraordinary lives. After two ad­ ditional years of editing and post production, Andrew is excited to be able to finally share the incredible story of Mary and Bill. Before I started filming "Mary and Bill," I had done a number of triathlons myself. At the events I would see professionals finish in record-breaking times, and I'd think, "I could never do that." They didn't inspire me, if anything it was discouraging. It wasn't until I opened up the newspaper one day and read about Mary, a 90-year-old woman who was completing the same triathlons that I was doing. On the same page of the newspaper was another article about an 83-year-old man named Bill who had set the national high jump record. After reading their articles, I thought, "these are the people that inspire me," and I felt that their story could also inspire other people of all ages all over the world. I had a need to explore their story in greater depth, figure out why they were able to do what they do, and share it with everyone.

Yankele, a mysterious Holocaust survivor, has an office in back of a movie theater that shows only love stories, run by a family of seven Romanian dwarves in the seedy area by the port. Yankele introduces Arik to a new world, built on the ruins of an old one. As Arik begins to learn the mysteries of the human heart through his work with Yankele, he falls in love with Tamara, his friend Beni's cousin. Tamara has just returned from America and is full of talk of women's rights, free love and rock and roll. The disparate parts of Arik's life collide in unexpected, often funny and very moving ways as he lives through a summer that changes him forever. Avi Nesher's latest film mixes comedy with drama as it tells a coming­of­age story unlike any you've ever seen before.

Rubaiyat Hossain Bangladesh / 2011 / 119 min / 35mm / English and Benglai & Urdu w/English sub­titles In 1971, during Bangladesh’s war of independence, Meher falls in love with a soldier from the enemy side. When her love is discovered, she is shamed and silenced by her family and society. Today 38 years after the war, Meher has a visitor she cannot turn down. Sarah—a ‘war­child,’ Meher’s cousin Neela’s daughter, who was given away for adoption has come back to piece together her past. Together, these two women must re­tell history through their stories in order to cut through the stigmas and walk into light. Writer: Rubaiyat Hossain / Producer: Ashique Mostafa / Art Director: Mashuk Helal, Tansina Shawon / Editor: Mita Chakraborty / Cinematog­ rapher: Samiran Datta / Principal Cast: Jaya Bachchan, Victor Banerjee, Omar Rahim, Shayna Amin / Contact: Era Motion Pictures, UTC Tower, 8 Pantha Path, Dhaka 1215, Bangladesh +88­02­8154124,, THE DIRECTOR; Rubaiyat Hossain is an interdisciplinary researcher. She has completed her B. A. in Women Studies from Smith College, M. A. in South Asian Studies from University of Pennsylvania, and M. A. in Study of Religion (Islam) from University of London. In 2002 Rubaiyat obtained a diploma in Film Direction from New York Film Academy. Her primary fields of interest are Sufism, Bengali nationalism, formation of Bengali moder­ nity and its correlation with female sexuality. A war is always made into a glorious narrative with certain male heros and villains. Women mostly appear as sacrificing creatures, mother and sisters who bravely let go of their men for the cause of the nation. Women also appear synonymous to the landscape, ready to be raped, plundered, and give their lives and izzat or chastity for the cause of the nation. The purpose of Meherjaan is to break the glorious narrative of national history and open up a modest avenue to explore perhaps, not only one or two, but multiple narratives of war. Perhaps, the story of death, violence, trauma and loss can be best told veiled in love and romance. In her writing about Korean comfort women’s sexual slavery during World War II, author Noeleen Heyzer offers an ‘aesthetic solution’ to overcome history of violence. She suggests that we look beyond feminist studies for a “more powerful power,” a “power” which is “life sustaining, liberating, and transforming.” I believe love and compassion is that “power.” As the world plunges into unlimited war and terror, there is a necessity to look outside the masculine ideology of nationstate and violence, to look for a feminine life sustaining language that is related to nature, absolute beauty and love. With Meherjaan’s saga of love, we intend to instigate a process of healing the unattended wounds of 1971 war by bringing out the inaudible voices of history. Rubaiyat Hossain

Mary Lambert USA ­Fiji / 2011 / 40 min / DigiBeta / English What does a beauty pageant in Suva, Fiji have to do with climate change? Quite a lot, as it turns out. 'Miss South Pacific: Beauty and the Sea' is a short documentary film about the 2009­2010 Miss South Pacific Pageant that brought contestants, or Queens, from all the major Pacific Island Nations to compete in a week long pageant for the crown of Miss South Pacific. Addressing the theme of Climate Change and its impact on Pacific Island countries, the Queens eloquently and passionately implore judges, spectators, and the world at large to reduce global carbon emission lest their island homes will be lost to rising seas. Is it too late to turn back the tide? Watch Miss South Pacific and see.

She graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design with a B.F.A. Lambert directed Chris Isaak's "Dancin'" and Janet Jackson's "Nasty" and "Control" along with music videos for Annie Lennox, Mick Jagger, The Go­Go's, Whitney Houston, Alison Krauss, Live, Mötley Crüe, Sting, Debbie Harry, Tom Tom Club, and Madonna's "Borderline", "Like a Virgin", "Material Girl", "La Isla Bonita", and "Like a Prayer". In 1987 she released her debut feature, the stylish and controversial Siesta, starring Ellen Barkin and Jodie Foster. It was nominated for the IFP Spirit Award for best first feature. She is known to horror fans for directing the 1989 adaptation of Stephen King's novel Pet Sematary and its sequel, Pet Sematary II. In 2011 Lambert worked as director on the 2011 Mega Python vs. Gatoroid.


THE DIRECTOR: Sastre was born in the British Hospital of Montevideo and has Romanian, Basque, French and Russian ancestry. He grew up in Montevideo, Uruguay and started to study cinema at the early age of 8. He is the eldest brother of three children, a sister Maria Eugenia and brother Federico, among other members of his family, are regularly featuring in his early artwork.

In 2007, Lambert turned her attention to documentary filmmaking with “14 Women,” examining the lives and motivations of women senators in the U.S. Congress. Currently, she is directing a film for PBS about the impact of declining fisheries on indigenous fishermen in the Pacific.

In 2002 he moved to Madrid, granted by Fundación Carolina of the government of Spain. One of his best­known early video­works is the Iberoamerican Trilogy formed by Videoart: The Iberoamerican Legend, Montevideo: The Dark Side of the Pop and Bolivia 3: Confederation Next.

Creatively, “MISS SOUTH PACIFIC; Beauty and the Sea” is a perfect example of collaboration between myself and producer Teri Tico. Teri's vision and her dedication to preserving the environment of the South Pacific were the inspiration for our film. I brought my storytelling skills to the project along with a desire to reveal the amazing characters that are such an important part of the story of the pageant. Every one of our queens is a story in her own right and the three young women we feature is each an icon representing young womanhood and the future of the South Pacific. Mr. McGoon, as the powerful male scion, is a wonderful example of the strength of family ties and traditional ways going back generations. His story prompted a contestant to write the speech that won her the crown of Miss South Pacific. Mary Lambert

In 2003 Sastre set up the Martin Sastre Foundation for the Super Poor Art with the slogan, "Adopt a Latin American Artist". The Foundation has at its heart the opportunity to sponsor artists from the periphery who normally do not have the economic means to access international circuits. In 2004 he won the First Prize for Young Artist at Madrid's highly prestigious ARCO Art Fair by the Madrid City Council. This same year his work Bolivia 3: Confederation Next, where a cartoon version of Sastre fights U.S. Artist Matthew Barney, was selected for the National representation of Uruguay in the São Paulo Biennial.

In Belgrade, only Moša Mar­ janović gets paId for every goal he makes, but that’s only Moša… At the same time, an official letter of invitation arrives at the address of the National Football Association stating that the team has been invited to compete in the First World Football Championship that is to be held in the summer of 1930 in Montevideo.

SOUTHEAST PREMIERE Burns EAST COAST PREMIERE Edward 2011 / USA / 93 min / HDCam / English WORLD PREMIERE What kind of cruel joke is it? You get married, UNITED STATES PREMIERE but you’re not only marrying your spouse – you get the in­laws too. Such is the predicament FLORIDA PREMIERE Buzzy and Katy find in the delightfully dark FESTIVAL WINNERS comedy, NEWLYWEDS. Buzzy is a successful personal trainer in Tribeca. Katy has found her niche managing a restaurant. They flaunt that they are perfect for each other – for they rarely see each other and subsequently don’t fall into the same manholes that other couples do. All is perfect. However, Katy’s older sister doesn’t get Buzzy and his perverted sense of humor. They barely tolerate each other – and only do so thanks to Buzzy’s laid back ‘tude.

That problem seems easily avoided and not a cause for great concern...but here comes another however...Buzzy’s half sister, that he hasn’t seen in years, rolls into New York like a windstorm blowing up trouble with apparently little effort. Throw in an ex­husband, a self­imposed exiled former lover, and a befuddled sexually deprived brother­in­law and this alphabet soup spells dysfunctional.

Kenny Dalsheimer, USA / 2009 / 57 min / English & Captioned subtitles for hearing impaired A New Kind of Listening is an hour­long documentary that takes us inside the creative work of the Community Inclusive Theater Group, as director Richard Reho inspires cast members, some with disabilities, to be writers, actors and dancers in an original collaborative performance. Together they prove that a small community arts project has the power to transform lives. The film is witness to Chris Mueller­Medlicott’s early, unrecognized attempts to communicate, and to his journey from a lonely, withdrawn adolescent to co­director of the theater group. A New Kind of Listening weaves together deep feelings, playfulness, vulnerability, and unexpected loss into a joyful, painful celebration of our connection to each other. The result is a groundbreaking film that will change your beliefs about intelligence, disability and what it takes to be heard. Co­Producers: Kenny Dalsheimer and Polly Medlicott / Editor & Cinematographer: Kenny Dalsheimer / Featuring: Chris Medlicott, Polly Medli­ cott, Richard Reho and members of the Community Inclusive Theater Group / Contact: Kenny Dalsheimer, 401 B­1 Foster Street Durham, North Carolina 27701,,, THE DIRECTOR: Kenny Dalsheimer is an award­winning filmmaker, producer, and educator and founder of The Groove Productions in Durham, NC. He has been producing locally inspired documentaries since 1996. In 2007 he co­directed Bending Space which screened at fifteen film festivals and aired on PBS in North and South Carolina. He received a Triangle Access Award in 2009 from the Alliance of Disability Advocates and the 2010 Positive Images in the Media Award from TASH for A New Kind of Listening.. Kenny received his M.A. in Anthropology from Duke Uni­ versity in 1985 and taught middle­school at Carolina Friends School between 1986–1996. A New Kind of Listening is both an advocacy call for the right to self-expression and a celebration of the power of inclusive arts to build community. Our purpose in sharing the film is to encourage arts inclusion initiatives in places far and wide. A New Kind of Listening shows how diverse members of a community can support each other to express their unique perspectives and move beyond conventional definitions of human communication. The film demonstrates that with no funding or high-tech equipment, creative expression through the arts can transform separate, unconnected individuals into a close-knit group of friends. Our hope is that advocates and artists will use a screening of A New Kind of Listening and the film website to lay the groundwork for new inclusive arts projects across the country and join our grassroots Inclusive Arts Campaign to spur dialogue, learning, and action. Kenny Dalsheimer

The ensemble is perfect pitched, working together flawlessly – and despite the bizarre situations they are plopped into, they make it all seem so real...too real...frightening when you think of it. This may be Burns’ best script to date. The dialogue flawlessly leads the audience along like a white water guide through the rapids and the hazards. Nothing is clean sailing but despite the perfect reality, the film is hilarious. Mostly because its not happening to you...but could it?

Though none too convinced, he starts work as a delivery man. Having set out on his first delivery soon after he witnesses a traffic accident. He ends up giving a statement at the police station.

Graduate of the Cinematography Department at the Łódź Film School (1990). Worked as director of photography on dozens of documentaries, a number of TV plays and ten feature films. Directed the independent feature Madmen (Szaleńcy, 2005) screened at numerous film festivals in Poland and abroad. Odd One Out is his first full length feature as a director. What is "Odd One Out" about? The answer is simple: you get what you see. If we could answer this question using words, there would be no point in making this film. Filmmakers are supposed to show "heroes in action" in the most honest way. And such attitude makes them willing to admit that human behavior is still a mystery to them. But they have to prove with their film that this mystery is so intriguing that trying to solve it is an interesting enough occupation. And there is only one way to prove it - entertain the viewers with their attempts to solve that mystery. Paweł Wendorff


This engaging and revealing documentary tells the personal stories of the people who call this area home and would like to keep it that way. From an American couple who’ve invested not just in their home but in their Panamanian community to a local businessman turned political hopeful and an indigenous leader fighting for his land, the characters and stories in PARAISO FOR SALE speak to the larger global issue of communities, new and old, under siege from faceless corporations. PARAISO FOR SALE explores issues of modern day colonialism, residential tourism, global gentrification and reverse migration, by revealing that immigration between Latin America and the US is not just a one­way street.

THE DIRECTOR: Anayansi Prado was born in Panama and moved to the United States as a teenager. Her debut documentary Maid in America about Latina domestic workers in Los Angeles, CA screened nationally on PBS series Independent Lens. Her second production, Children in No Man’s Land about unaccompanied minors crossing the US/Mexico border is part of the State Department’s American Documentary Showcase and it’s been screened in more than 30 countries around the world. Paraiso for Sale is her third independent production. Anayansi is a recepient of a Rockefeller Media Fellowship and has received funding from The John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, Creative Capital, ITVS, Latino Public Broadcasting, The Pacific Pioneer Fund, The Paul Robeson Media Fund, The Fledgling Foundation and Chicken and Egg Pictures. As of recently, she received grants from the Cultural Program Division of the State Department to teach documentary filmmaking in Burma and Paraguay. Ms. Prado is the founder of Impacto Films and the non­profit Impacto Project. She holds a BA in Film from Boston University. Anayansi resides in Los Angeles, California. During my visits prior to filming, I got to network with a number of expats on Boca. The couple in the film was not my first choice. My original couple was from Utah and they had also invested their life savings into land with the plan of building a house in Boca. But as their house was being built, a developer told them that he had the title to the land and they spent the remainder of their money fighting him in court. Then, they simply ran out of money. So the house wasn’t finished and they moved back to the U.S. Their story was extremely complex and heartbreaking. That is when I met the couple you see in the film, whose story is similar in the land and title issues, but their house was already completed. It was a pleasure getting to know them and they honestly wanted to help the community. They were very sad to leave Boca. Anayansi Prado

The latter de­ picted the quirky misadventures of a recent college grad and was a hit at the Slamdance Film Festival, winning the coveted Anarchy award. Based on the success of his shorts, J.C. was commissioned by Stu­ dioNext to write and direct a web series titled Dealing with Michael Bell that garnered praise from MSNBC, Streaming Media Magazine, and The Silicon Alley Reporter. With an ambition to continue telling longer format stories, J.C. edited the critically acclaimed feature documentary The Outsider about maverick film­ maker James Toback and starring Robert Downey Jr., Harvey Keitel, Neve Campbell, Brooke Shields, and Woody Allen. The film premiered at the 2005 Tribeca Film Festival and was sold to Showtime.


MARC SMoloWitz

THE DIRECTOR: Marc is an Academy Award nominated producer (The Weather Underground, ” “Trembling Before G­d,” "Still Around"), director, and executive producer with 20+ years of experience across all aspects of the entertainment business. He teaches Digital Film Making at the Art Institute of California ­ San Francisco and the Film & Digital Media Program at UC Santa Cruz. Marc's forthcoming films include “The HIV Story Project,” for which filmmakers collaborate with people living with HIV/AIDS. When I read "The Power Of Two - A Twin Triumph Over Cystic Fibrosis," I was moved by the way Anabel Stenzel and Isabel Stenzel Byrnes write so eloquently about their experiences with chronic illness. My big take away from their memoir was that we all have a stake in global conversations about public health, organ donation, and transplant, and we can all find a space in our lives for community and advocacy of social causes. From there, it made perfect sense that a feature documentary inspired by their lives would be a natural evolution for this story. As I began the film making process, I quickly fell in love with Ana and Isa, both as people and as characters; and over time, we developed a powerful 3way trust in all aspects of this story telling collaboration. All in all, I see Ana and Isa as both ordinary and extraordinary women, which reminds us that we often see such humbling and familiar contrasts in our own lives. As such, they are entirely approachable yet somehow also bigger than life. Ultimately, it is their twin bond that resonates on-screen with immense power -- the kind that transcends boundaries of culture, race and nation. In bringing their stories to screen, I have had the great pleasure of following them across two countries and 27 cities, and now, I look forward to sharing their stories of survival with the world. I am quite sure that audiences will embrace them with the same openness and excitement that they themselves bring to every day. For me, it truly has been an honor to make this film -- a highlight of my life and career -- and I have learned so much about what it means to opt in for being an advocate for something bigger than myself.

commits a first act of disobedience by leaving this place that preached racial hatred. Now he is facing a Cornelian choice: to become forcibly enrolled and leave for the Russian front to fight the Allies or to become a draft dodger, buried alive in the cold and damp mines for months on end without seeing the light of day, the only hope being the Liberation. Wartime slows history down, but for men deci­ sions are accelerated: Collaborate with the enemy, or resist?

Ludi Boeken Germany / 2011 / 95 min / English and German & French w/English sub­titles Based on the memories of Marga Spiegel, published in 1965, she describes how the courageous farmers in southern Münsterland hid her, her husband Siegfried {named Menne} and their little daughter Karin from 1943 until 1945, thus saving them from deportation to the extermination camps in the East. The film tells this story of survival with a sense for the absurd in daily life and not without the typical Westphalian humor. Without reservation, the farmers offer the refugees their protection. That this turns them into heroes would never occur to them. They are used to weathering even dangerous situations somehow, guided only by their instinct and century­old code of ethics. They risk their own lives, and, if necessary, even that of their families. There is never a discussion about friendship, reliability, humanity. In Yad Vashem the farmers’ names are immortalized: Heinrich Aschoff, Hubert Pentrop, Bernhard Südfeld, Heinrich Silkenböhmer, Bernhard Sickmann.

THE DIRECTOR: Nicolas Steil was born in Luxembourg the 2nd of January 1961. He started his career as a journalist, first with the written press then with radio and television. He opened his own audiovisual company in 1986 and for the next 5 years produced and directed for television and the industry. In 1991 he joined the Media Program of the European Union and headed the Euro Aim, a structure designed to help independent Eu­ ropean producers to sell their films and also to set up financing. In 1997 he reactivated his company and with Iris Productions he launched a pro­ duction program including feature films, animations and documentaries. To date, over 20 films have been produced. Since 1997, Nicolas Steil is the Secretary General of the Luxembourgish Producers Union (ULPA), as well as a theatre and cinema director as well as a screenwriter. Luxembourg was annexed by Germany and became an integral part of the Reich. This dark period of history nearly generated a depersonalization of Luxembourg. The Resistance in Luxembourg became really effective and efficient from the moment where the Nazis made the mistake to attack its youth and thus any sign of hope. A large number of young Luxembourgers were 'forcibly enrolled' and sent to the Russian front. They only had two choices: shoot the Allies or desert at their own risk, hiding until the end of the war. Those who chose the latter option became 'draft dodgers' by the established order, accepting the underlying risks. The Resistance organized hideouts that varied from dropped ceilings to church towers and especially parts of iron-mines that weren't worked in anymore. Another concern was that the close family of draft dodgers were systematically deported.... A real dilemma where they were stuck between the devil and the deep blue sea without any hope of getting out. So this is the question that is put to the audience: what would you have done if you were this young man whose basic equation is admittedly complex but unites negative as well as positive elements. Nicolas Steil

THE DIRECTOR: Ludi Boeken graduated from London Film School in 1973 and from tel Aviv University in 1976. He produced HA–HOLMIM (’87), WHEREVER YOU ARE (’88), VINCENT & THEO (’90), LA FRATURE DU MYOCARDE (’90), SILENT TONGUE (’93), ROULEZ JEUNESSE (’93), LUCKY PUNCH (’96), ZEUS & ROXANNE (’97), KINGS FOR A DAY (’97), TRAIN OF LIFE (’98), VITNER’S LUCK (’09).

Ludi (Boeken) was really shocked when he received the screenplay for SAVIORS, his German grandmother had married a Jew in Amsterdam and was so outraged during the Second World War about the German occupation of the Netherlands and the persecution of the Jews that she helped bring hundreds of Jews to safety by hiding them in the countryside outside of Amsterdam. Our film’s story is a German variation of what Ludi’s family went through. Joachim von Mengers

THE DIRECTOR: Born in Italy, Christian Filippella is an award winning Italian filmmaker living and working in Hollywood. A Fulbright grant recipient, Filippella obtained a directing diploma from the Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia in Rome and was the first Italian to have obtained a directing degree from the world renowned American Film Institute in Los Angeles. Christian is the recipient of the Sergio Corbucci Prize and the Accolade Award. He received the Philip Morris Cinema Award twice, and his upcoming feature, White Widow, has been selected by the New Filmmaker Panavision Program. After studying at AFI and Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia and crafted my directing skills both in Europe and the US, I thought I would have had many opportunities to work as a director. The reality is that no doors opened for a young filmmaker with film knowledge and many short films in the can. I could either return to my home country and attempt to access government funding for my first feature film, or stay and struggle to become an independent producer. I went for the second option, and after a long complicated process we produced Silver Case, an experience we can surely reminisce as our careers progress. Everyone involved has worked really hard to make this movie possible. We can't wait to see it screened.

A pair of lovers travel from town to town, taking on different identities in each new place. Driven by an insatiable appetite for change and with no regard for consequences, they manipulate, toy with, and forever alter the lives of the strangers they meet. However, with each performance, their deceitful game spirals ever more out of control. One lie leads to another and in the end escape becomes impossible. Both morally ambiguous and sophisticated, SILVER TONGUES takes you to the brink of the unexpected. Writer & Editor: Simon Arthur / Producers: Jared Moshé, Leda Nornang / Cinematography: Josh Silfen / Music: Enis Rotthoff / Costume Designer: Astrid Brucker / Principal Cast: Lee Tergesen, Enid Graham, Tate Ellington, Emily Meade, Harvey Evans, Portia, Adam Lefevre, Rosa Arredondo / Contact: Simon Arthur SPeCiAl GueSt: SiMon ARthuR

THE DIRECTOR: Simon Arthur trained at the Screen Academy of Scotland, his home country. SILVER TONGUES, his debut feature, won the Au­ dience Award for best feature at Slamdance 2011 and premiered internationally at San Sebastian. His short films also made award winning runs at international festivals. Every day when you walk out of your house you’re putting on an identity for the world. We transform ourselves to engage with the people in our lives. But what happens when the need to change becomes pathological? The film’s concept came from a research strategy I developed to learn more about life beyond my own existence. As a writer I knew I had to throw myself into worlds that I was a complete stranger to. So in 2004 I took a three­month job as a prison guard. Then I went to work security in a brothel. Finally, I lived homeless for a month, sleeping in parks, doorways and construction sites. In all these instances, I noticed one common theme. People were acting constantly. Prison guards wear alternate faces to deal with different con­ victs. The more the convict is a threat, the more the guard will deal with him accordingly, by being more aggressive himself. A different convict will be dealt with by taking a more diplomatic tone. Prostitutes invent characters with fake names and pasts to attract clients, but also because psychologically it creates a barrier for them, making the job less emotionally involving. Home­ less people often act as if their situation is worse to gain sympathy from pedestrians, but to other homeless people they'll exaggerate how much control they have, as if to say, "I'm in control. My life is my own. I can survive." Even when they can't. And, of course, I was acting too. This seemed extreme to me at the time, but the more I thought about it, the same could be said of anyone and their differing relationships with their boss, lover, parents, pals, or staff. The film is not about redemption. It’s not about triumph in the face of adversity. Or finding love in the strangest place. It’s about people who need the new. The desire to change, and never stop changing.


Briar March New Zealand / 2010 / 80min / English, Takuu & Tok Pisin w/English sub­titles What if your community had to decide whether to leave their homeland forever and there was no help available? This is the reality for the culturally unique Polynesian com­ munity of Takuu, a tiny low­lying atoll in the South Western Pacific. As a terrifying tidal flood rips through their already damaged home, the Takuu community experiences the devastating effects of climate change first hand. In this verite­style film, three intrepid characters Teloo, Endar and Satty, allow us into their lives and their culture and show us first hand the human impact of an environ­ mental crisis. Two scientists, oceanographer John Hunter and geomorphologist Scott Smithers, investigate the situ­ ation with our characters and consider the impact of climate change on communities without access to resources or support. Intimate observational scenes allow Teloo, Endar and Satty to take us on their personal journeys as they con­ sider whether to move to an uncertain future in Bougainville or to stay on Takuu and fight for a different, but equally un­ certain, outcome.

Partly funded by PBS, the film follows three Pacific islanders in Papua New Guinea as they considerFLORIDA leaving their homeland and PREMIERE culture forever. FESTIVAL WINNERS This documentary is extremely topical and discusses an issue of global importance. It is also a character-driven story told in an observational cinematic style, in contrast to other more science driven, or journalistic films on the subject. It has wide appeal because the issue of climate change affects all of us, but also because it shares the characters’ life experiences in a way that people everywhere can relate to and respect. Takuu’s plight draws attention to the situation of other people in the Pacific and in coastal areas elsewhere who will soon face similar problems. In addition to being an important record for all Pacific peoples, this film will help preserve the way of life and cultural identity of a unique Polynesian culture. The Takuu community have stressed to us that they feel they do not have a voice and we hope that through this film we will be able to give them one. Briar March

What's the craziest career choice anyone can make and spend over 80 years pursuing that path? "Troupers" gives new meaning to the phrase, "hang in there". Meet 12 talented, successful people who beat the odds, followed their dream and are still working well into their 80's and 90's. These are the journeymen actors, the ones you see in a movie or TV show and who seem really familiar. "Troupers" takes a humorous look at how this fearless group survived parental disapproval, the black list, divorce, debt, rejection, disappointment, depression, the depression, bad acting coaches, nasty casting directors, and decades of auditions to do what they wanted to do: Act.

THE DIRECTOR: For almost two years I have followed some of the characters in this documentary. Wendy, a 19-year-old Dutch girl was arrested 3 years ago at the airport in Lima when she was boarding the flight to Amsterdam, with 18 kilos of cocaine in her luggage. Wendy was pregnant . She was sentenced to 14 years in prison. Her life had always bad, but life in prison is unimaginable.

Their previous creative collaboration includes the political sketch comedy show, “White House Chicks” which they performed at numerous comedy clubs throughout Southern California, “White Chicks” at the HBO Comedy Workspace and the short, “The Smoking Section”. For 6 years we’ve been on the long journey of making “Troupers”. The concept was to shoot a short and take a couple of weeks to edit it, but the stories were too rich to contain to 20 minutes. Thankfully our 12 troupers opened up their homes to us and we quickly uncovered that once someone hits 80, their filter fades away and they tell you just how it is and was. With the exception of actors we had worked with, most of the performers came from the address book of Ceil Cabot, Saratoga’s spirited and talented mom. Her father is Carl “The Amazing” Ballantine, so it was easy to grab shooting time with him as long as we took him out for a meal afterwards. Army Archerd from Variety found out about the project he insisted we include the gifted Allan Rich. Running around with a camera, typing up every word we shot ourselves, combing through photos and clips, while continuing our day jobs had it’s downside. One afternoon in Jane Kean’s perfectly appointed living room in Toluca Lake, I keeled over in a faint from hunger. Harold Gould set up some of his shots himself; from her sofa, Betty Garrett took us through an archive of her personal photos of her days at MGM; we were barred from shooting Kaye Ballard in her dressing room at the Palm Springs Follies and then escorted off the property during an attempt to salvage our aborted shoot! The project really came to life when we brought Gabe Miller onboard. We’d sit with him in the evening and cut and then cut again. Jeff Chayette’s artistry added dimension to the photos, graphics and opening montage, as well as his original recording of “Ja-Da”. And how lucky we are that Golden Globe nominated composer, Rolfe Kent, gave us his time to create the score for the movie. We laughed a lot, cried a bit, and fell in love with these showbiz survivors and hope you will too.

Isaak’s first two indie features, SPECIAL NEEDS and HUNGRY YEARS, were edgy, politically incorrect comedies hailed for their “brave sense of humor” and won Isaak comparisons to Trey Parker, Woody Allen, and Robert Altman. As a musician, Isaak composed the scores to all three movies, and when he isn’t behind the camera, he’s behind the mic: a lounge singer in the romantic crooner tradition, Isaak has performed at Harlem’s legendary Apollo Theater. Summing up, Isaak exemplifies the DIY ethic—making good things happen “with two pieces of string” and limitless imagination. Eva James (sister of Isaak James) made her foray into filmmaking by joining her brother to create Last Ditch Pictures after graduating Marymount Manhattan College. In 2006 she served as producer, actress and co­editor of their first feature film, SPECIAL NEEDS. Three years later in 2009, Eva and Isaak teamed up again for the making of Hungry Years, a film which marked Eva's directorial debut. Hungry Years premiered at the Fort Lauderdale In­ ternational Film Festival and acquired distribution through Screen Media Ventures. James has recently served as producer, co­director and co­writer of Last Ditch Pictures third feature TURBINE. Eva's vast experience in producing spans such production arenas as commercials, viral commercials, feature films and shorts. In the commercial realm, Eva has been in involved in the production of Fanta's "Lift & Laugh" viral video (worked with the creator of the Coca­Cola Happiness Machine), Subaru Character's Story "Jill", USA Networks "Character's Unite" campaign broadcast spots, and USA Networks "White Collar Character Builder". Eva recently produced a viral commercial for New Balance.

THE DIRECTOR: When Joey Sylvester was a youngster back in Chicago, his parents had given him an inexpensive video camera as a gift. He carried it everywhere, shooting odd footage of the neighborhood, herding his friends from various lo­ cation to the next. Perhaps it was only childs­play, but Sylvester’s imagination had been activated. His youthful passion for image­making was rekindled.. Fast forward, Sylvester's directorial debut title: "In the Land of Opportunity" was an Amer­ ican selection at FESPACO 2009. Premiered in an outdoor arena in Burkina Faso, West Africa. The BBC World News produced a segment on his film. He was invited to a highly regarded screening series at The Gene Siskel Film Center. Barbara Scharres quoted his piece "An Impressive and Well­Crafted Film". Since then, Sylvester's directed and produced six pictures with veteran actors such as: Sally Kirkland, Marla Gibbs, Louis Mandylor, Jason Stuart, Jeff Conaway, and Robert Catrini. He recently directed a TV pilot with Academy Award Winning Director James Moll, and obviously, the feature film "Walk a Mile in My Pradas".
