ith much gratitude that Zion Park has reopened, welcome to the 7th Annual Red Rock Film Festival and Red Film Market! This year the festival has selected 65 diverse films from 363 films submitted from 26 countries, including animated shorts, dramatic fiction, documentaries, experimental films and music videos. A big special thanks goes out to our program committee and to all the sponsors and volunteers who make this festival possible! As a half-way point between our kick-off screenings in Zion National Park and St. George, we have landed in the courteous town of Hurricane and are enlightened with the hospitality and enthusiastic involvement the city has shown. Screenings in Hurricane will be at the old elementary school, known today as the Hurricane Fine Arts Center across the street from the Community Center. We invite you as you watch the international films and meet their filmmakers, to look beneath the iceberg, the spark of subtext in the theme of the film. For every motion picture, there is the story beneath the story, whether subconscious or intentional, there is a plot line to follow like a mystery novel where we imagine what really happened. It is these fine points that have double meaning with a glint of the eye, a monologue, a musical overtone and makes a film so much more enriching for our mind. Enjoy!

Endurance athlete, Serge Roetheli endeavors to run a distance equal to the earth’s circumference to bring awareness and raise money for the world’s impoverished children. Accompanied by his wife Nicole, who drove a motorcycle with their supplies and pup tent in tow, their unforgettable journey spans five years covering six continents and unforgiving landscapes. Confronted with challenges that pushed them beyond their limits, the Roethelis battled against extreme weather, civil unrest, and near-death illnesses. Remarkably, they survived it all. At the heart of their journey is a love story; a relationship of two people who believe in achieving the impossible, and whose story ends with a shocking twist. Plays with Still I Ride

A hot topic, this timely documentary is a character study of Tim DeChristopher, the student who monkey-wrenched a fraudulent Bureau of Land Management oil and gas leasing auction in December 2008. Bidding $1.8 million to save 22,000 acres of pristine Utah wilderness, Tim brought the BLM to an abrupt halt in a stunning act of civil disobedience. In February 2009, the new Obama administration retroactively invalidated the entire BLM auction. Nevertheless, DeChristopher was federally indicted, facing up to ten years in prison and $750,000 in fines for his disruption of the illegal auction. Over the next two years, DeChristopher stepped up his activism and evolved into a climate justice leader, until his trial began on February 28, 2011. Bidder 70 is Tim’s journey from economics student to incarcerated felon.

DIR Catherine Jayasuriya, PRO Catherine Jayasuriya, Allan R. Smith, SCR Catherine Jayasuriya, CIN Andrew Fink, EDIT Andrew Fink, CAST Dusty Brandom

The humanity of the film gives it a broad appeal with engaging subjects and an intriguing premise… “What would you want the last thing you see to be?” With a likable, unpretentious cast, this documentary manages to connect with the audience… satisfying without being devastating. Two brothers, Tod and Justin Purvis are faced with a rare genetic disease that causes blindness (Choroideremia) and decide to take the road trip of a lifetime around the United States and see everything possible before going blind. Exploring large cities and small towns, camping in national parks, pushing themselves to their limits while meeting strangers and making new friends, Driving Blind is the story of appreciating what you have, while you have it. The film is a portrait of what makes America beautiful, what really matters in life, and what we as human beings do with our short time here.

This film is an inspirational documentary about a young man’s journey with Duchenne muscular dystrophy, a fatal and debilitating muscle wasting condition that affects one in 3,500 boys worldwide. The story tells about people coming together from around the world to climb a mountain in Borneo for charity to raise awareness for Duchenne. Dusty’s Trail celebrates life through ties that bind all humanity. It’s about the power of creating a positive, happy, fulfilling and inspiring life when the odds seem against it. Filmed in Borneo and California, the documentary is based on interviews with doctors, researchers, parents, friends and people who have been inspired by Dusty’s life, some with whom he has never met, and others who share the same path.

Brian James Griffo was born into the small town of Boston, N.Y. in 1983.Growing up near cornfields and woods 30 miles south of Buffalo, N.Y. childhood was peaceful, if not quiet. The early years were filled with spending time in the woods, lying in the silence of snow, wood fires, drawing, painting, reading, and learning. Having a mother that worked as a make-up artist allowed Brian to grow up in the film industry, helping camera, working off the G&E truck or getting a director coffee. It was this background that propelled Brian and best friend Ryan Detzel to relocate to Los Angeles years later.

When Catherine’s son, Dusty, was diagnosed with Duchenne muscular dystrophy 14years ago, it was a catalyst for her to live in the present moment with gratitude. Catherine is Malaysian/English. Her father is part Sri Lankan and part Kadazan, and her mother is English. Catherine was raised in Kota Kinabalu, in the Malaysian state of Sabah, on the island of Borneo. Catherine has undergraduate degrees in Asian History and Photojournalism, and a Masters in Counseling from California State University, Fullerton. Catherine is founder of Present Moment Yogi Productions, which is committed to making a difference in the world with inspirational messaging through film and documentaries. She also founded a non-profit called Coalition Duchenne that raises awareness and funding to find treatments and one day, a cure for Duchenne.

The honesty comes through in this documentary that explores the dimensions of grief over the loss of a pet. Heartwarming and heartening, it touches on sentimental qualities without being saccharine. The sociological evolution of pets in the U.S. today has affected those in the veterinary profession and death care industry. Many professionals preserve a pet’s body or re-purpose a pet’s cremains in unique ways. With interviews from grieving pet owners, veterinarians, psychologists, sociologists, religious scholars, and neuroscientists the film confronts contemporary trends, perspectives, and cultural assumptions regarding religion, ritual, grief, and death as well as the psychological and physiological bonds between humans and animals.

For a decade James Garland has roamed the country carrying his painting materials and easel on his back. He barters his paintings to obtain his supplies, to feed himself, and to just get by. Everywhere James goes, he is on an evangelical mission to extol his spiritual and artistic beliefs. This 45-year old, biracial Native-American is a born-again Christian and travels from his summer home in Central Park, New York City to Santa Monica, California. The episodic journey visits Baton Rouge, Louisiana where James re-connects with the Pentecostal Swaggart Ministries and his artistry is highly prized. After a lengthy absence, not unlike the Prodigal Son, James returns to Tulsa, Oklahoma for a loving homecoming with his family.

In the buckle of the Bible Belt, 10 churches were burned to the ground in five weeks, igniting the largest criminal investigation in East Texas history. No stone is left unturned and even Satan himself is considered a suspect in this gripping investigation of a community terrorized from the inside-out. Families are torn apart and communities of faith struggle with forgiveness and justice in this incredible true-story. This documentary delivers edge-of-your-seat suspense and mystery while transcending into human conflicts of forgiveness, religion, and re-defining the concepts of church, family and justice. First time director, Theo Love, delicately peals back the layers of East Texas culture to reveal a rarely seen vulnerability. While maintaining a refreshing objectivity, the filmmaker allows each character to express themselves organically while spinning a complicated web of moral conflict and internal struggles both for the subjects and the audience.

Nancy Kelly has been making independent fiction and nonfiction films for more than 25 years. Nancy directed and produced a documentary trilogy about the transformative power of art: “Trust: Second Acts in Young Lives”, “Smitten”, and “Downside Up”. Nancy also developed, produced, and directed “Thousand Pieces of Gold”, starring Rosalind Chao and Chris Cooper, a narrative feature about a Chinese woman sold into slavery during the California Gold Rush. Nancy has also directed the awardwinning documentary shorts: “Cowgirls”, “Sweeping Ocean Views” and she co-directed “A Cowhand’s Song.”

Four family struggles unfold in the small efforts that comprise their daily lives. The imagery is powerful and leads the eye with singular focus – The opening sequence, for instance, is a wide shot: harvesting cane and bamboo in the Cambodian jungle. The sound of chopping through the vegetation reveals the crudeness of a sharp bladed ‘axe’ — roll back to a tiny girl wielding the knife, wearing a basket over her shoulders. The story sets its own cinematic mood of folks whose survival depends on the river: brown skin, brown water, brown soil on the banks along with vast jungles that inhabit the extent of the story. Whether fishers or rice growers the pace and sound become a rhythm of futility.

In 2011, she won a special award for social justice by the Interfaith Mission Service, Inc.

Shelter Island resident and ‘outsider’ artist Harald Olson share his eclectic tastes with Jimmy Olinkiewicz, a blue-collar gas station owner. The film follows their amazing journey from selling paintings alongside a picket fence to a major showing at a Chelsea art gallery in Manhattan. Jim becomes the embodiment of all that was once good in the business world — a small business owner who makes decisions not because they necessarily lead to profit, but simply because it’s the right thing to do. As the father of an autistic child, he’s also “paying it forward” by helping the “outsider” Harald find his way to success and happiness. Harald Olson, on the other hand, is the personification of ART. He is consumed with painting, sometimes going in 72 hours stretches where he “forgets” to eat. Money has almost no value to him, as his clothing and painting materials are found in the town dump. In conversation, Harald does his best to make small talk, but eventually every conversation returns obsessively to one about the process of painting and creating art.

An internationally famous circus family, The Flying Wallendas have performed their highwire act without a net for eight generations. Guinness Book of World Records holders three times over, and recipients of the coveted Silver Clown in Monte Carlo, this family hones its skills and continues its artistry on the same rigs and with the same apparatus as their famous grandfather, Karl Wallenda did, some 80 years prior. To peer inside this family is to experience familial bonds at an extreme – one false move and they are all in serious danger. Their history reveals just how dangerous this can be – Karl himself, quoted as saying “being on the wire is living; all the rest is just waiting,” fell to his death in Puerto Rico walking 80 feet above the ground. In 1962 in Detroit, MI, the family, led by Karl, fell while performing their Guinness Book of World Records, 7-person pyramid. Two members perished in the fall, another was paralyzed. And yet the next evening the family performed again – literally embodying “the show must go on” tradition.

Young Malawian William Kamkwamba teaches himself to build a power-generating windmill from junk parts, successfully rescuing his family from poverty and famine. He becomes an energy icon for the developing world and meets American entrepreneur and future mentor Tom Rielly, who helps him imagine a new future. Fame, opportunity, stress, and cultural isolation follow his achievements, and his life is transformed. As William struggles with the potential of his promising future, he privately yearns to distance himself from his windmill, that which made him famous. This is a story about a complex young man straddling two cultures, carrying the burdens of his past achievements while boldly pursuing a bright future.

Sébastien Pins was born on May 30, 1990 in Namur. Fascinated by beauty, delicacy and mysteries of nature, he was early attracted by photography. He has since been striving to capture strong connections between men and nature. His pictures received many prices and travelled throughout Europe. As he was eight years old, he wrote and directed his first small theatre scenes. At 15, he discovered pyrotechnics and became professional pyrotechnician five years later. Fascinated by visuals, he began an audio-visual training at SAE Institute in Brussels and realized his first documentary, which was awarded by the Festival Nature Namur (BE) in 2010. He went then to the Institut des Arts de Diffusion in Louvain-la-Neuve (BE) and finalized another documentary on the symbiosis between men and bees. This last one was awarded Festival Nature Namur in 2011, and selected in several festivals (Festival of the Bird and Nature,…) and broadcast on TV channels (RTBF, RTC…). Step by step he felt the need of realizing fiction films on nature and he produced the short film on men and trees “My Forest”.

This drama is the tale of wounded souls in search of respite. Over the course of 24 hours, four characters collide with incendiary results. A visual story conveyed clearly and progressing with snippets of the characters while being challenged to fill in some of the blanks. As the story unfolds, the protagonist grows to have a desire for something more out of life, something in the hotel room close by where he meets a woman with a little girl. The woman does not represent another love interest; but simply humanity worth caring for. Plays with Zion Flix: A Slight Case of Clairvoyance

Andrew Kightlinger was born and raised in Madagascar, studied politics and French at Augustana College in South Dakota, and attended film school at Boston University. After directing five short films, Kightlinger landed his first feature gig on Dust of War, a postapocalyptic action yarn starring genre staples Tony Todd (“Candyman”) and Doug Jones (“Pan’s Labyrinth”, “Hellboy”.) Kightlinger’s in-your-face demeanor on-set has thus far made a good impression. “He exposes his vulnerabilities before you can,” says Boston-stage actor Bates Wilder, “and thus earns an actor’s trust through total disarmament.” Kightlinger is “one of the few favorite directors I’ve EVER worked with,” insists Doug Jones, “he’s one of those rare directors who gave me confidence that I was in experienced, creative, artistic hands.” Andrew harbors a unique view of the world and its people, and his goal is to project that viewpoint into captivating and thought-provoking films, while also feeding his ‘other passion’ to support disease research in Madagascar. His favorite filmmakers include Nicholas Roeg, Jean-Pierre Jeunet, Sam Peckinpah, Peter Watkins, and Steven Spielberg.

Andy MacDonald is a 94-year-old Cape Bretoner and the son of a coal miner. An author of five books that highlight his countless antics as both a young boy during the depression and as an adult, he is actually best known for the dummy farm he began in 1967. The majority of these dummies are now in an old dilapidated bus beside his home. The farm features a colony of “people” that MacDonald assembled from various odds and ends, with each character’s most distinguishing thoughts are pinned onto him/her. Though his work is considered a folk art, the quirky senior never feigns having a grandiose artistic statement. He does it all for the sake of a laugh.

After struggling with alcoholism, drug dependency, PTSD and traumatic brain injury, he is invited to a unique program in Sun Valley, Idaho helping treat veterans and their spouses. The goal: to channel their addiction to adrenaline through outlets like skiing and paragliding.

The Hurricane Fine Arts Center was the former site of the old Middle School, and is the performing arts center located across the street from the Community Center in Hurricane (pronounced “Her-ah-kun” by the locals.) The brick building is home to several plays, dance programs, and community events. Although Utah is not known for hurricanes, the town was reportedly named by ‘Mormon’ leader Erastus Snow during a particularly windy day in the 1860s.

Green Valley Spa & Resort has become a worldrenowned icon of spa luxury and innovation, with the only 4-Diamond accommodations in Southern Utah. Set in a beautiful, sprawling property, against a backdrop of stunning red rock mountains and pristine nature, Green Valley Spa will lead you on a path to physical, mental, and spiritual well being! Recipient of the prestigious 2013 SpaFinder Wellness Readers’ Choice Award for Best Spa for Outdoor Adventure.
