CARRoLL BAKeR TRIBUTe FILM
BUT noT FoR Me Walter Lang / USA / 1959 / 111 min / english But not for Me, though seldom seen today, is a sparkling comedy with a rich history both on Broadway and on the big screen. The film is an adaptation of Samson Raphaelson’s play, Accent on Youth, which opened at the Plymouth Theatre on Broadway on Christmas Day 1934 and ran for 229 performances. Raphaelson had already cemented his reputation in film as author of the play on which The Jazz Singer was based, the landmark 1927 film that proved there was a market for talking pictures. on film, Raphaelson collaborated on nine productions with the legendary director ernst Lubitsch including The Shop Around the Corner and Heaven Can Wait and wrote the screenplay for Suspicion, Alfred Hitchcock’s second Hollywood film. on Broadway, eight of Raphaelson’s plays were produced in addition to Accent on Youth. Following its successful Broadway run, Accent on Youth became a film in 1935 with Herbert Marshall and Sylvia Sidney in the leading roles and then was re-fashioned as a musical for Bing Crosby and nancy olson in 1950 titled Mr. Music. When a remake was planned yet again in 1959, the title became But not for Me and the leading roles went to Clark Gable and Carroll Baker with a strong supporting cast which included Lee J. Cobb and Lilli Palmer. The story centers on a veteran Broadway producer whose current show, a story about a May-December romance, is in serious trouble. When he announces it’s probably time to retire, his young secretary professes her love for him and the ensuing romance between producer and secretary becomes the plot of his troubled play. The story continues to endure as a 2009 Broadway revival featured David Hyde Pierce in the role of the theatrical producer. In reviewing But not for Me for The new York Times, Bosley Crowther paid special attention to Carroll Baker, noting, “Miss Baker, being a young lady who not only has looks but also can act, makes you understand why Mr. Gable would like to cheat a little bit on Father Time. When she polishes her "baby doll" complexion against his tanned and furrowed face, you get a pretty good idea why he believes May and December can meet.” The film was produced by the legendary team of William Perlberg and George Seaton. In her memoir, Lilli Palmer referred to them as “a rare pair, those two, operating in perfect harmony for twenty years and more, making outstanding films, Seaton writing and directing, Perlberg producing – without ever having signed a contract with each other. They didn’t need one, they said.” Some of their collaborations included Miracle on 34th Street, The Country Girl and Teacher’s Pet. To direct But not for Me, the pair chose Walter Lang, who had over 60 films to his credit at that point, including Desk Set, The King and I and Cheaper by the Dozen. Changing the film’s title to But not for Me afforded the producer’s the opportunity to incorporate the Gershwin’s song of the same name with ella Fitzgerald performing it for the film. Summing up his Times Review, Crowther wrote, “As a rule, yarns about show business and show people tend to get onto soggy ground, but John Michael Hayes (screenwriter) has kept this one airborne and airy most of the way. And Walter Lang has directed it so that it crackles and pops.” With a stellar cast and an equally talented production team, it’s not surprising the film garnered high praise!

Although he once studied law at the University of Texas, it is hard to imagine the big screen or the small screen without Dabney Coleman for he has been a fixture in film and television for several decades. Like many actors, he began his acting career in television and appeared in such hit programs as Ben Casey, The Alfred Hitchcock Hour, Dr. Kildare, Hazel, The Donna Reed Show and The Fugitive. He made his film debut in The Slender Thread, a drama starring Anne Bancroft and Sidney Poitier directed by Sidney Pollack. Some of his other early film appearances include This Property is Condemned, Downhill Racer, Cinderella Liberty, north Dallas Forty and The Towering Inferno. However, for many movie fans, he will always be remembered for his portrayal of the boss in nine to Five, in which he co-starred with Jane Fonda, Dolly Parton and Lily Tomlin. In The new York Times, Vincent Canby wrote, “Considering the militancy of ''nine to Five,'' it may be fitting that the funniest performance in the film is given by Dabney Coleman, who plays Franklin Hart Jr., the dishonest, sexist boss of the company.” Some of his other film roles include on Golden Pond with Henry Fonda and Katharine Hepburn, Tootsie with Dustin Hoffman, WarGames, Young Doctors in Love, Modern Problems, The Muppets Take Manhattan and The Man with one Red Show with Tom Hanks. He portrayed Milburn Drysdale in the feature film version of The Beverly Hillbillies and went on to appear in such movies as In the Line of Duty, You’ve Got Mail,
Inspector Gadget and Stuart Little. Perhaps because his acting roots are in television, he has worked most extensively in that medium over the years. Following a recurring part on That Girl, he gained regular roles on such series as Mary Hartman - Mary Hartman, Apple Pie, and played the lead in Buffalo Bill, The Slap Maxwell Story, Drexel’s Class and Madman of the People. In addition to these regular television series, he also appeared in guest spots on many other popular series and made a number of memorable television movies. More recently, Coleman has had regular roles on such series as The Guardian, Courting Alex, Heartland and Boardwalk empire. Additionally, he has found time to appear as a guest on such programs as Law and order: Special Victims Unit and in such films as Moonlight Mile. Animation fans enjoy his voice in such cartoon series as Recess and Pound Puppies. Coleman won the emmy Award for outstanding Supporting Actor in a Miniseries or a Special for his work in Sworn to Silence and has been nominated for an additional five emmy Awards. He received the Golden Globe Award for Best Performance by an Actor in a TV Series - Comedy/Musical for his work in The Slap Maxwell Story and in both 2011 and 2012 he won the Screen Actors Guild Award as part of the cast of Boardwalk empire receiving the prize for outstanding Performance by an ensemble in a Drama Series.

Described by Time magazine as containing, “Warmth, violence, nostalgia and the dynastic sweep of an Italian-American Gone With the Wind,” the film was an enormous success and is regarded as one of the best American films ever made.

Wayne Blair / Australia / 2012 / 102 min / english 1968 was the year the planet went haywire. All around the globe, there were riots and revolution in the streets. There were hard drugs, soft drugs, free love and psychedelic music. There was the shock of Martin Luther King and Bobby Kennedy’s assassinations. And dominating every other news story. There was Vietnam. For four gorgeous young women from a remote Aboriginal mission, 1968 was the year that changed their lives forever. Sisters Gail, Julie and Cynthia, together with their cousin Kay, are discovered by Dave, a down-on-hisluck Irish musician with attitude, a taste for Irish Whiskey and an ear for Soul Music. Dave steers the girls away from their Country & Western origins then flies them to the warzones of South Vietnam, where they sing Soul Classics for the American Marines. on tour in the Mekong Delta, the girls sing up a storm, dodge bullets. And fall in love. An absolutely terrific film...kinda like RoCKY, where you are pulling for the underdog against seemingly insurmountable odds. Add the great soul music of the 60’s against a true backdrop of the Vietnam War like you’ve never seen it before and you’ll be humming all the way home!

Stuart Acher / USA / 2012 / 85 min / english The morning after a one night stand can be uncomfortable to say the least – and that is no exception in Stuart Acher’s delightfully kinky comedy STUCK, wonderfully performed by his two leads, Joel David Moore (AVATAR, DoDGeBALL) and Madeline Zima (who doubles as exec Producer). Using flashbacks in the creative fashion of telling the story, Acher magnificently puts the puzzle together leading to discovery and lots of laughs. Here’s all you should know about the story. Guy, in a bar, alone, meets girl, in the same bar, also alone. They go to his place. Clever and surprising, STUCK is a great date film that gathers momentum as it quickly develops. The unique structure of the film is a fun device creating a suspenseful curiosity for the lucky audience.

★ TRIBUTe ★
Born in 1911, Hugh Marlowe suffered a freak childhood injury that activated a staph infection in his leg. He would be in and out of the hospital for much of his youth and was unable to join in ordinary boyhood physical activities. This was acute, as his twin brother, Worthington, was captain of the football team and a champion wrestler. A perceptive teacher, however, encouraged him to act. This proved fortunate, as his career would span over fifty years, performing in many significant films, plays, and shows on radio and on television. Marlowe performed in at least eleven Broadway plays, including two comedies by Clare Booth Luce: Kiss the Boy’s Goodbye (1938), & Margin for error (1939). on radio, he was the first voice of ellery Queen (1939), a role he would reprise on television in 1954. other plays included: Flight to the West (1940), by the Pulitzer Prize winning dramatist elmer Rice. And The Land is Bright (1941), by edna Ferber, a member of the on the radio as eLLeRY QUeen Algonquin Round Table. His first starring stage role was in the Kurt Weil musical Lady in the Dark (1943) with Gertrude Lawrence. In 1947, he starred with his third wife, K.T. Stevens, in Laura. They had two sons, Jeff and Chris, but divorced in 1968. Marlowe’s first major film involved a short flirtatious carriage ride with Judy Garland in Meet Me in St. Louis (1944). In 1949, he starred as Lt. Col. Gately in the WWII picture Twelve o’clock High (nominated for 4 Academy Awards), with Gregory Peck. Twelve o’clock High was selected for preservation in the Library of Congress and is required

viewing at U.S. service academies. Marlowe’s second film that year was Come to the Stable, also by Clare Booth Luce, with Loretta Young and Celeste Holm. The following year, Marlowe performed with Betty Davis, Gary Merrill, Celeste Holm, Anne Baxter, and George Sanders, in All About eve – the quintessential film about “the theatre.” It also contains the first brief screen appearance of Marylyn Monroe. In 1951, Marlowe did the comedy Mr. Belvedere Rings the Bell, the Henry Hathaway western Rawhide, with Tyrone Power, and the seminal Robert Wise scifi: The Day the earth Stood Still, with his dear friend Michael Rennie. He did one other western with Hathaway, Garden of evil (1954), with Gary Cooper. In 1956, Marlowe starred in the B sci-fi classic earth vs. the Flying Saucers, significant for the special effects of the great stop-action animator, Ray Harryhausen. In the 1960’s, he performed in three films with his good friend Burt Lancaster: elmer Gantry, The Birdman of Alcatraz, & Seven Days in May. The latter two films directed by John Frankenheimer. As his Hollywood career wound down, Marlowe moved to nYC where he met his fourth wife, Rosemary Tory, in the norman Mailer play The Deer Park (1969). Having a son with Tory, Hugh Michael Marlowe II, he finished his career as the family patriarch, Jim Mathews, on the nBC Soap opera Another World. He would complete 12 seasons on Another World before his sudden death of a heart attack in 1982. He is survived by Rosemary Tory Marlowe and his three sons.

Warren Sroka & Brent Makoto Willis / Japan / 2012 / 88 min / english elliot, an emotionally withdrawn Japanese-American, wants nothing to do with his current business trip to Tokyo. The business trip soon turns dangerous as life in Tokyo unearths ghosts from elliotâ€™s past, bringing to surface a life that he has struggled to put behind him. Tensions heighten when elliot reconnects with Ben, his estranged American half-brother who is teaching english in Japan. Ben, an eternal optimist, is struggling with his own fear of abandonment as he attempts to navigate a foreign land and a potentially romantic relationship with one of his students. When Ben desperately tries to forge a bond with elliot, elliot must decide whether to give up on his family all together or confront his fears head on and engage in what might be his last shot at a meaningful relationship. Despite the ominous synopsis, there is much humor to be found in the film, sometimes anguished laughter, and often nervous chuckles. Sroka and Willis who co-wrote, co-direct and co-star have created a unique little gem that is difficult to pigeon-hole. A film that has you guessing about the little things, for its that substance upon which the film is based, built and resolved. oh yeah, the resolution will have you guessing too.

I have a memory of the first day of shooting that was a mixture of excitement, of urgency to get started at last, but also of fear and misapprehension. It’s the first time I’ve made a film in four languages (French, Hebrew, Arabic and english), and I only speak one- and-a-half! I wondered how I was going to get through it, how I was going to marshal my crew and communicate what I wanted, how I was going to work with the actors, how to suggest to them certain nuances.

Dustin Hoffman / UK / 2012 / Lifelong friends Wilf and Reggie, together with former colleague Cissy, are residents of Beecham House, a home for retired opera singers. every year on Giuseppe Verdi's birthday, the residents unite to give a concert to raise funds for their home. But when Jean Horton, a former grande dame of the opera fallen on hard times, also Reggie's ex-wife and the fourth and most celebrated member of their former quartet, moves into the home to everyone's surprise, the plans for this year's concert start to unravel. As old grudges threaten to undermine past glories and theatrical temperaments play havoc with the rehearsal schedule, it becomes apparent that having four of the finest singers in english operatic history under one roof offers no guarantee that the show will go on. Two time oscar winner, Dustin Hoffman takes a seat behind the camera for his directorial debut that stars two time oscar winner Maggie Smith, five time nominee Albert Finney and two time nominee Tom Courtenay...we really donâ€™t have to say anymore than that.

This was soon followed by his breakthrough movie role as the good-looking but troubled Benjamin Braddock in The Graduate (1967). Since then Hoffman's career has largely been focused on cinema, with only sporadic returns to television and the stage. Some of his most notable films are Papillon, Marathon Man, Midnight Cowboy, Little Big Man, Lenny, All the President's Men, Kramer vs. Kramer, Tootsie, Rain Man, and Wag the Dog.

Lucy Mulloy / Cuba / 2012 / 89 min / Spanish w/english sub-titles Floridians are acutely aware of the situation that is the day-in-day-out life of people virtually imprisoned on the island of Cuba. The US embargo created a life in a bubble where remnants of the 1950’s pervades existence. Living with just the modicum of convenience is not easy and escaping is fraught with peril. In Lucy Mulloy’s debut feature, the frustrations, fears and dreams are vividly realized immersing the audience in the intoxicating/suffocating environs of Havana. Her young cast performs brilliantly and the production elements are stunning. Raul and elio, both in their teens, have first-hand knowledge of life only on Cuba, but daily they see tourists who are carefree, enjoying the beauty of the island. This dichotomy creates driven resolve for the boys to flee. Their efforts muddle along without a true time-table until a violent act necessitates their immediate call to action. elio’s situation differs from Raul’s in not having any pangs of remorse...but Raul is extremely close to his sister, Lila and has pangs of guilt in leaving her. UnA noCHe won three awards at the Tribeca Film Fest with Mulloy named Best new narrative Director, and Best Actor awards for both Javier nunez Florian (elio) and Daniel Arrechaga (Raul).

Michel ocelot's first foray into 3D animation. A hit at the Berlin Film Festival, the film extends the earlier shadow puppet style, with black silhouetted characters set off against exquisitely detailed Day-Glo backgrounds bursting with color and kaleidoscopic patterns – the subtle use of 3D creating a diorama-like effect. every night, a boy, a girl and an elderly technician meet in a closed, rather dilapidated old cinema. But the old picture palace harbors a secret. If truth be known, the cinema is a magical place where the three friends enjoy rummaging about, fantasizing, dressing up and playing parts in make-believe stories which, at night, become all too real for the three friends. For this is the time when sorcerers and elves take over in the auditorium, courageous stable hands long for beautiful princesses, werewolves howl and hardhearted ladies swish their heavy silk skirts. Here, there are cities of gold and forests that are so deep that nobody ever finds their way out again. This is a magical universe pervaded by waves of harmony, where heavenly choirs compete with the dull thud of magical drums. on nights such as these, malevolence can unleash great misfortune. But, in the end, good always triumphs. The film weaves together six exotic fables each unfolding in a unique locale, from Tibet, to medieval europe, an Aztec kingdom, the African plains, and even the Land of the Dead. In ocelot’s storytelling, history blends with fairytale as viewers are whisked off to enchanted lands full of dragons, werewolves, captive princesses, sorcerers, and enormous talking bees - and each fable ends with its own ironic twist. "Instantly Timeless! A Triumph!" - Variety "A Delight! This playful collection of fairytales has charm in spades!" - Time Out London
"Truly Thrilling! An utterly gorgeous and magical film!" - The Oregonian "Glorious! Michel ocelot's ravishing animation and magical storytelling is a delight from start to finish!" - Empire THe DIReCToR: Born in Villefranche-sur-mer on the Riviera in 1943, he spent his childhood in Guinea and his youth in Anjou on the Loire. Having worked at a puppet theatre as a teenager, he later studied at ecole régionale des beaux-arts in Angers, École nationale supérieure des arts décoratifs in Paris and the California Institute of the Arts in Los Angeles. In 2007 he directed a video for Icelandic musician, Björk.

Shareen Anderson / Solomon Islands-South Africa / 2012 / 52 min / english A team of scuba divers travels to the Solomon Islands in the South Pacific to dive the wreck of the USS Atlanta, a light cruiser that was damaged and sunk during WWII's naval Battle of Guadalcanal in 1942. The wreck is located at 130 meters (426 feet) below the surface - a challenging dive for even the most experienced technical diver. The battle - often referred to as the “Barroom Brawl” – was one of the most chaotic and close-range naval battles in US history. It took place from the 12th to the 15th of nov 1942, and is credited for turning the tides in favor of the Allies, and eventually leading to the surrender of the Japanese forces. The USS Atlanta put up a heroic fight against enemy fire, but was battered not only by the Japanese destroyers, but also by friendly fire amidst the confusion. 172 of her men were killed in action. Atlanta was outfitted with detonation charges and scuttled on the orders of the captain to avoid falling into enemy hands. Through the voices of the dive team members, interviews with historians and veterans who served on the Atlanta, as well as the most extensive footage of the wreck shot to date, the harrowing drama of war and destruction - the story of USS Atlanta, and its final hours will come alive on the screen.

A young boy takes care of his little sister and elderly grandmother. They live in a mud house, which despite the hole in the roof is somewhat comfortable. However, the hole troubles the boy and as master of the house it is his duty to repair it. Luckily for him, it hasn’t rained in quite some time – which is quite unfortunate for the villagers, their farms and livestock. The village daily performs a traditional ceremony of praying for rain in a village in Iran which is facing drought. The people and their cleric leader pray everyday for a few days, but it doesn't rain and the people are asking why God does not hear their voice. Perhaps one good and positive gesture can cure two conditions. As with A GLASS oF MILK, Shams renders a simple tale, told simply with a lot of heart.

ATHenS (Appartamento ad Atene), Ruggero Dipaola / Greece-Italy / 2011 / 95 min / Greek & Italian w/english sub-titles Athens, 1943. An apartment is requisitioned to provide accommodation for a German officer. In the apartment live the Helianos, a middleaged couple who used to be well-off. He is an intellectual, moderate and patient. She is an anxious housewife. They have a ten-year-old son who is filled with melodramatic revenge fantasies and a twelve-year old daughter. With the arrival of Captain Kalter everything is wiped out. The methodical, ascetic, cruel Karter is a military god who inflicts terror. And the Helianos give in, submissive. They are now servants, with no identity other than their acquiescence. The will of the military god is their only worry. The apartment enshrouds them like an epidermis. At night, clinging to each other on the folding bed in the kitchen, they weave wild ravings: they dread the following day’s orders, they exchange sparse, terse words. They are afraid of making noise, they don’t want to move anything. Then, suddenly the absence. The master leaves for Germany and the servants find out that freedom doesn’t have any meaning and that the ordeal goes on. When Karter comes back, they feel relieved. He is a changed man: he’s kinder, even indulgent. His indulgency is bewildering. But it is a fragile balance. Underground currents of hatred flow secretly and prepare a chilling revenge. one of the most unusual wartime stories we have ever presented. The fear and tension is palpable. Dipaola, in his first film, has created an unforgettable situation. His cast top-lined by the always wonderful Laura Morante as the protective mother and Gerasimos Skiadaresis as the loving father so frightened that harm would come to his family. enter into this household, Richard Sammel as the nazi Captain and you have a pot ready to boil over.

SPECIAL GUEST: LAURA COLELLA
Laura Colella / USA / 2012 / 84 min / english In 2004,director/writer Laura Coella brought her quirky comedy-romance STAY UnTIL ToMoRRoW and captured FLIFF prizes as well as our hearts. She returns now with an equally off-beat story that is captivating and intriguing. In the beginning you meet a cadre of characters who live in the same charming but funky abode in the northeast. You will try to figure out who’s who and what the relationships are...but don’t worry, the story subtly unfolds like a flower, revealing tidbits as it ambles along. In this tres bohemian household are Syd (a kinder, gentler Hunter S Thompson), an eccentric who dabbles in waxing poetic and imbibing frequent quantities of red wine; Pirate, his soul mate, not oblivious to Syd’s weirdness, just comfortably fond of it; Sadie, an elderly matron who has savored life to its fullest; Paola (brought to life by Coella) a free and introspective spirit who lives with Frenchy, who, though we aren’t told, seems to have a certain degree of circus DnA coursing through his being. next door, a family (Sylvie the Mom, Simon the Dad and Curtis their son) that seems ordinary enough, though as time slips by they begin to exhibit their own eccentricities. In a nutshell, Syd gets in a brouhaha with Simon near the beginning of the film. Then, fairly soon we fast forward five years and now, Syd reengages the neighbors in hopes of having the now teenage Curtis assist him with technical expertise on an internet venture. What is important to keep in mind – this is not your typical narrative – the characterizations, the finely crafted dialogue and the ambiance of the garden imbued neighborhood create a lilting and intoxicating respite from the typical universe others (us) breathe. executive Producer: Michael A.

Phil Volken / USA / 2012 / 83 min / english How could a film about garbage be so sweet? First of all, a great script, two terrific lead performances and the guiding focus of the director to keep it as real as possible, all the while creating a funny and dare I say it again, sweet film. Lenny and Abbott are two garbage men with the enviable route of Beverly Hills. Modest and unassuming, Abbott drives the truck. Lenny, who idolizes Hollywood, is the outside guy. They are both lovable guys who seem to enjoy their work and the few perks that come with it. on one fine day as they are empting their load at the county dump, something catches Lenny’s eye and almost immediately – the lives of our two heroes begin to change. Adding some Hollywood zing are cameos by Michael Madsen, Daryl Hannah, and Billy Baldwin. So tomorrow at the water cooler, when someone asks what you saw at FLIFF last night, just tell’em, “Garbage.” Producers: Alina Shraybman, Phil Volken / Screenplay: Phil Volken / Cinematography: Joseph Arena / editor: Phil Volken / Principal Cast: Jed Rees, Jon Huck, Alanna Ubach, Michael Madsen, William Baldwin, Daryl Hannah / Contact: osiris entertainment firstname.lastname@example.org Sponsored by

Setton, who directed Daniel Schechter’s script of THe BIG BAD SWIM (and Daniel’s here too with SUPPoRTInG CHARACTeRS), won awards at FLIFF and the film was an audience favorite. THe KITCHen is also a bit off-beat and at times highly sexual, is a riot of a film with 99% of the action taking place, you guessed it, in the kitchen. Jennifer lives in sort of a communal house, much like a college atmosphere...thing is Jennifer is turning 30. Her philandering boyfriend has been unmasked as the film begins and this knowledge is causing Jennifer much angst. There is a big party for Jennifer tonight and her friend Stan has done it all (hired a band, made chili, ordered a cake, decorated...he’s a good friend, but actually, he’s not so secretly in love with Jennifer. Also key to the story is Jennifer’s sister, Penny, who has her own soap operas to contend with. In and out of the party traipse an infantry of party-goers with about as much respect for the house as a teenager with a fake ID in a rental car...and in both cases, the collisions are inevitable. Setton keeps the action fast paced and his youthful cast is up to the task. Laura Prepon (THAT 70’S SHoW) is the cheated upon Jennifer, Bryan Greenberg (noBeL Son) is the cheater, Matt Busg (nICe GUY JoHnnY) the party planner and Dreama Walker (who should get our Martha Plimpton Award, which became our Parker Posey Award and soon the Dreama Walker Award for appearing in so many indie features at FLIFF) is the sis with troubles.

Leo Chiang / USA / 2012 / 72 min / english MR.CAo GoeS To WASHInGTon takes an intimate look at Republican Representative Joseph Cao’s term as the first elected VietnameseAmerican Congressman representing the 2nd district of new orleans, a historically African American and Democratic district. In December 2008, the City of new orleans observed a remarkable event. The nine-term Congressman, William J. Jefferson, lost his seat to an obscure Republican candidate named Anh “Joseph” Cao. Public faith in Jefferson was waning following a money laundering scandal and a bribery charge brought against him by the FBI, and Cao emerged as an unexpected alternative to many in new orleans. Thus begins the political paradox that is Representative Anh “Joseph” Cao – a grassroots activist and social progressive who believes in immigrant rights, gay rights, and government services for the poor, but who is an adamantly pro-life Catholic that allied himself with the Republican Party. After the Fall of Saigon in 1975, Joseph Cao came to the United States as an 8-year old without his parents. He was raised in Indiana and Texas by relatives who were also refugees. Cao is by his own admission ambitious. After studying for the priesthood, Cao entered law school with an eye on how it could be a steppingstone into politics.

MRS. JUDo: Be STRonG, Be GenTLe, Be BeAUTIFUL Yuriko Gamo Romer Japan-USA / 2012 / 66 min / english + Japanese w/english sub-titles Throwing thousands of years of tradition to the wind, Keiko Fukuda chose to follow her own destiny and become the highest-ranking woman in judo’s history. 'Mrs. Judo: Be Strong, Be Gentle, Be Beautiful' tells the inspirational story of Fukuda’s lifelong journey, spanning four continents, nine decades, and two distinct cultures, to overcome adversity and ultimately transform into a living legend. Fukuda was born in Tokyo in 1913, where two generations earlier her samurai grandfather was the first martial arts master to Jigoro Kano, who went on to found judo in 1882. In 1934, Fukuda was invited by Kano to join his new women’s division, a progressive idea at a time when males dominated the sport. Judo’s black belt has 10 degrees, but gender discrimination dictated that women hit a ceiling at 5th degree, until 1974. Facing her own struggle for independence as a young woman, Fukuda bucked tradition, choosing not to marry when she realized that as a wife she would have to give up her beloved judo. Her teacher, Master Kano, charged his students with the responsibility to spread judo around the world, and after Kano died in 1938, this became her life's vocation. Today, at 99, Fukuda still teaches judo three times a week. After 77 years of practicing judo, Fukuda now holds judo’s highest rank - 10th dan - and has earned the prestigious title “Shihan” (grand master). Fukuda Shihan is the last living disciple of Master Kano and the only living link to judo's origins.

Towards this goal, Pindling and the PLP fought an uphill battle against the white British oligarchy of White Merchants ruling the country at that time. A group known as the Bay Street Boys.

Julia Dyer / USA / 2012 / 83 min / english If the 1960’s gave us the birth of sexual freedom, the 70’s evolved in many ways as the dark, kinky by-product of that renaissance. Folk concerts, rock and coffeehouses yielded to discos. Grass, LSD and mushrooms gave way to cocaine and dance floor poppers. Peace-LoveHappiness took a back seat to “what’s in it for me.” Julia Dyer’s brilliant production of her sister Gretchen’s screenplay is a trip to the dark side. Somewhere in suburbia, Martin and Donna, along with their four children share a home. It’s not ozzie & Harriet, June & Ward...mom and dad seem to have gotten their DnA from edward Albee. The kids, outwardly seem fairly normal, especially considering their roots. Martin and Donna like to entertain at home and it appears their friends, nadia and Clark enjoy coming over for drinks and dinner and drinks... on this particular night, the kids assume their station, that being the upstairs playroom. But the fun and games don’t stop there. Molly Parker as Donna has never been better – calculating, manipulative, selfish and self-destructive. oscar nominated John Hawkes provides the steely, just a degree or two from boiling over Martin. The kids are all fantastic (and we should all pitch in for counseling costs). olivia Harris, as Maggie, the oldest child of the brood, is fabulous in her screen debut (and she sings the closing credit song- also beautifully). Dyer has orchestrated the film like a car wreck on the highway, its gruesome, but as you drive by, you can’t help but look.

FLORIDA PREMIERE When the ghost of the White Woman FESTIVAL WINNERS starts haunting South Mountain, she's NORTH AMERICA PREMIERE only interested in one thing: To get rid of a pesky space ship that just landed WORLD PREMIERES
in her forest. A few days later, when a new employee shows up at Chief Split Log's Gentlemen's Club, proprietor, Rotten egg, has no idea she might be from another planet. Will this film be in the running for an oscar or Golden Globe? We think not. Does this film have overwhelming social value? Well, yes, an argument could be made. Is this film a total hoot? Unequivocally, yes! But here’s the rub...you have to lighten up, go with the flow, and remember, every film doesn’t have to be eLePHAnT MAn...but come to think of it, that’s a possibility too. John Putch, auteur of this totally wacky, tour de farce, has enjoyed a wonderful career as an actor, director, writer...and now he gives us the sequel to his lunacy calling card, RoUTe 30. His cast totally buys into the concept and the result is one of the weirdest escapades in filmdom. Tired of telling the other line they have called a Do noT CALL nUMBeR...let your machine do that, you owe yourself a trip down Route 30.

Ben Lewin / USA / 2012 / 95 min / english â€œA film of tenderness and humor married to the unlikeliest of subjects, "The Sessions" presents the story of poet and polio survivor Mark o'Brien, who left behind an oeuvre of life-affirming writing despite his condition. But this is no mere biopic; Jessica Yu covered that quite nicely in her oscar-winning nonfiction short "Breathing Lessons." Instead, writer-director Ben Lewin's film focuses on perhaps the most unusual chapter of o'Brien's life, in which the iron lung-bound writer (John Hawkes) arranges to lose his virginity with the help of a sex therapist (Helen Hunt). Careful treatment makes for an exceptional, expertly acted crowd-pleaser. By avoiding the impulse to explain everything up front, Lewin foregrounds Mark's sense of humor, allowing his personality to show through his potentially depressing circumstances. From the beginning, he exhibits a frisky interest in sexuality, which feels unusual not because of his disability, but because so few films have been willing to deal with the subject as a source of anything other than shame or stimulation. For this reason, "The Sessions" is a refreshingly sex-positive picture, serving to break down many of the barriers Mark (and audiences, too) have toward good, clean intercourse. In Mark's case, the issue is complicated by his Catholic upbringing. Mark spends much of the film in confession with his church's priest (William H. Macy), who serves as a form of therapist, while earning laughs for his slightly flexible moral guidance. Variety Producers: Ben Lewin, Judi Levin, Stephen nemeth / Writer: Ben Lewin / Cinematographer: Geoffrey Simpson / editor: Lisa Bromwell / Composer: Marco Beltrami / Principal Cast: John Hawkes, Helen Hunt, William H. Macy / Contact: Fox Searchlight Pictures

He directed numerous television series and movies before directing first feature film, Georgia (88). His subsequent features are The Favour, the Watch and the Very Big Fish (91), Paperback Romance (94) and The Sessions (12).

But his world is turned upside down when his grandmother dies and he is forced to live with his dysfunctional relatives who have no patience for him or his senile grandfather, who they quickly force into a nursing home. Luke is left with his grandfather’s final semi-coherent words: “Get a job. Find a girl. Live your own life. Be a man!” For the first time in his life, Luke has a mission. He is about to embark on a quest. Alonso Mayo wrote and directed with such care and humor. It is a beautiful story so exquisitely acted by a solid ensemble. Cary elwes (THe PRInCeSS BRIDe) and Seth Green (AUSTIn PoWeRS) are perhaps the two best known – Lou Taylor Pucci who plays Luke has several indie credits under his belt...but the rather unknown quality to the cast definitely plays to the strength.

ok, this film is not your average walk in the park. Its a slow, simmering comedy that boils to a great cauldron of dark comedy fun. Its a riot in a most unconventional fashion – with not so leading men in the leading roles – not so glamorous locations – and not so typical dialog delivered in atypical cadence. Definitely a vacation from ordinary film! Producer: Timothy L. Anderson / Screenplay: Timothy L. Anderson / Cinematography: Cameron White / editor: Timothy L.

WALLY’S MISSIon on MARS Lisa Mills / USA / 2011 / 82 min / english A retired rocket scientist who worked on the Apollo engineering team now believes that sending humans to Mars is not a very good idea. Follow Wally nelson to Kennedy Space Center and Washington, DC, as he tries to convince astronauts, space administrators and politicians that spending money on solutions to world peace is a much better idea. This film traces the history of the Apollo program through nelson's point of view and is one of the first films released about the end of the Space Shuttle era. WALLY’S MISSIon is on the surface, quite fun and engaging. However, this rocket scientist seems to have his head screwed on right when you sit back and listen to his very compelling arguments...the question isn’t really whether he is right or wrong, but rather the decision making process that governs billions of dollars and the risk of life for our astronaut team.

Kenya / 2011 / 77 min / english + Swahili & Kalenjin w/english sub-titles In the last 30 years Kenyan athletes have dominated distance running, winning major marathon and track events around the world. It is not the altitude or ideal weather that makes this place so unique, but rather the runners' optimism that anything is possible through dedication and hard work. The world has seen the results that Kenya has produced, but very few people have heard these athletes’ stories while on the road to greatness. Where Dreams Don't Fade goes beyond the world records to show the real lives of three Kenyans with different running backgrounds. each of these athletes has their own challenges, but share a common dream: to become the best runners in the world. Despite high poverty and few job opportunities running remains more than 'a way out.' encouragement is everywhere, even though only a select few reach the world stage each year. This film chronicles what happens when individuals pursue their goals with dedication and passion in a culture that believes in dreams.

This action-packed journey unfolds in the order Judi testified, questioned by civil rights attorney, Dennis Cunningham. The archival footage brings the story to life, driven by music from the earth First! movement. Judi Bari, an eloquent, brash orator with a union background, grows into a powerful environmental leader. Story threads and character arcs intertwine: the lawsuit against the FBI, the complex history of earth First!, the loggers, the controversy of tree spiking, the political/romantic partnership of Judi and Darryl, and the fate of the ancient redwoods. early 1980's earth First! footage conveys the thinking of the founders, such as Dave Foreman and writer edward Abbey. Deep ecology and civil disobedience are depicted in action. As Judi scores victories, tensions grow into violence. As Judi and Darryl successfully organize for the Cahto Wilderness, Headwaters Forest, and Redwood Summer which bring thousands to the area, they experience the chilling fear of death threats and ultimately the government's convoluted reasoning to accuse them of the crimes committed against them.

SOUTHEAST PREMIERE EAST COAST PREMIERE nisha Pahuja CanadaWORLD / 2012 / 91PREMIERE min / english and Hindi, Marathi & Gujarati w/english sub-titles UNITED STATES PREMIERE In the FLORIDA lobby of a modest Bombay hotel, 20 PREMIERE young women from across India arrive for an inFESTIVAL WINNERS tense, month-long beauty boot camp. They are NORTH AMERICA the hand-picked contestants for the PREMIERE Miss India pageant, the ultimate glamour event in a country WORLD PREMIERES that has gone mad for beauty contests. Winning the coveted title means instant stardom, a lucrative career path and, for some girls, freedom from the constraints of a patriarchal society.
But as the popularity of pageants has exploded, so have the controversies surrounding them. Through dramatic verite action and unprecedented behind-the-scenes access, THe WoRLD BeFoRe HeR sweeps back the curtain to reveal the intimate stories of young women determined to win the crown and the forces that oppose them. Hindu fundamentalists view pageants and their “international” beauty standards as immoral and a symbol of the rapid Westernization of India; protests are common. Yet amid pageant dazzle and heated rhetoric, filmmaker nisha Pahuja ensures the faces and voices of India’s young women remain front stage centre. As the contestants move through beauty boot camp, Pahuja travels to another corner of India to visit an annual camp for young girls run by the Durgha Vahini, the women’s wing of the militant fundamentalist movement. Through lectures and physical combat training, the girls learn what it means to be good Hindu women and how to fight against Islam, Christianity and Western influences by any means necessary. The Indian government says these camps promote terrorism and is trying to ban them. Until now, they have never been filmed.

She co-wrote and directed Diamond Road, a three part series on the global diamond trade for ZDF/Arte, TVo, Discovery Times and History Television.

FoUnDInG SPonSoR ★ BRoWARD CULTURAL CoUnCIL To the members and audiences of the Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival
ecognized globally as a destination for filmmakers, the Fort Lauderdale Film Festival (FLIFF) is an important creative engine in the cultural fabric of Broward County. A recent study released by Americans for the Arts - Arts & Economic Prosperity IV shows that Broward County’s arts and culture industry grew by 50 percent in the period from 2005 - 2010, generating $230 million in economic activity. This number comprised of $103 million in spending by nonprofit organizations (like FLIFF) and $127 million in event-related spending by audiences (that’s YoU) supports 6,402 jobs, generates $157 million in household income to local residents, and delivers $21.9 million in local and state government revenue. The Broward Cultural Council congratulates the Broward County Film Society for artistic excellence and looks forward to its continued growth as a major contributor to our cultural community, its economic impact and its evolving global relationships.

MISSION STATEMENT Bringing people together year round, using Cinema to educate and inspire while showcasing the best in filmmaking. VISION STATEMENT From independent and world cinema to documentaries and student films, the diversity of work spotlighted by over 25 years of festivals and events will continue to make a significant cultural and economic impact on the communities of South Florida.
FLIFF CHAIRMAn'S MeSSAGe Who would have thought that last year's opening night film, The Artist, would go on to win the Golden Globe and the oscar for Best Film? Penelope Ann Miller, one of the film's stars, was on hand for the red carpet and after film gala. She was joined by Beau Bridges (one of the stars of the George Clooney film The Descendants, another oscar winner), Dennis Haysbert and many others. our Sr Program Director, Bonnie Leigh Adams, had the foresight to schedule a silent, black Gerry Weber and white film.... to the delight of the audience. Ceo Saladarity, We are looking forward to what Bonnie & Gregory has in a Green Fine Salad Company store for us this year. During this year's Festival the country will be electing a President, consider Cinema Paradiso your escape from the non stop talking heads on your TV.
I would like to acknowledge and thank our Staff and Volunteers. Without them it would not be possible to do what we do. entre nous, a support committee, works tirelessly throughout the year to ensure that27 we raise the funds needed th to continue to bring you the best in Independent and Foreign Cinema. Kudos to all of the members for their commitment. And most important a heartfelt thank you to you, our patrons and members for supporting us. Gerry Weber Board Chair
