A Blast

“With its passionate, impetuous, and revolting hero A Blast IS the Greek crisis.” – Sueddeutrsche Zeitung, F. Goettler

Set in the fervent years of the collapse of the Greek economy, A Blast tells the story of a generation’s disillusionment and radicalization.Maria starts her adult life with the best of intentions. Ten years after, no matter where she looks her world is cracking. Unwilling to reconcile with a life of unreturned care, lost dignity and broken-down desire to live, Maria attacks. She attacks herself, her past, the people she loves, her country and the perception of her sex in a relentless battle to find truth, in her and around her.

“Freewheeling, tense and edgy” – Screen Daily

“Tzoumerkas directs each scene to its boiling point, resulting in montage sequences that stay in mind for long. Angeliki Papoulia, one of the most fearless European actresses, plays Maria without emergency breaks.” – Der Spiegel, Oliver Koever

“Syllas Tzoumerkas talks about the state of a generation without allegorical detours. He goes straight to the Greek state of things, using the anger, frustration, the restlessness, the pain and the passion of the protagonist Maria with breathtaking speed.” – Frankfurter Algemaine, P.Koerte

“A black, bleak, urgently contemporary film. The frantic, unsettling and intriguing record
of a woman’s journey, Syllas Tzoumerkas’ charged personal diatribe against an economic system seemingly designed first to make people, and then to break them.”
– The Hollywood Reporter, Jonathan Holland

Directed by Syllas Tzoumerkas

Angeliki Papoulia, Vassilis Doganis, Maria Filini , Themis Bazaka, Yorgos Biniaris, Makis Papadimitriou

Crumbs

Crumbs is set against the background of spectacular post-apocalyptic Ethiopian landscapes, where the film finds a strange-looking scrap collector, Gagano (played by the charismatic Daniel Tadesse).

Alternately gripped by daydreams and constant fears, the diminutive Gagano has had enough of collecting the priceless crumbs of decayed civilization, including the most valuable: merchandise from Michael Jackson and Michael Jordan.

When a spaceship that has been hovering high in the sky for years starts showing signs of activity, Gagano has to overcome his fears– as well as a witch, Santa Claus and second-generation Nazis– to discover things aren’t quite the way he thought.

“…striking African landscapes make for evocative visuals” – Video Librarian

Across the Line

A young, black athlete living in a racially divided community finds his career prospects in jeopardy when tensions in his community come to a head. Inspired by true events, Across the Line takes a hard look at the serious issues of racism, violence, and bullying in contemporary life.

“HARD HITTING AND MOVING” – The Chronicle Herald

“PASSIONATE IN ITS DRIVE TO EXAMINE RACIAL FRICTION” – National Post

Race showed us Stephan James could be a movie star. Across The Line mints him as an actor.” -Norman Wilner, NOW Toronto

Stephan James (Race, Selma) is Mattie, a talented hockey player recruited by a top NHL team, but his plans are jeopardized by his hustling brother and the corrosive racial tensions in his community and at his school.  Sarah Jeffery (Shades of Blue) is Jayme, a beautiful but tough young lady of mixed race, who is standing squarely on the line and has to decide which of two cultures she belongs in.  Based on real events.

“Racial discrimination has always been a painful subject to talk about. Not to mention the torturous feeling you have to experience as you watch a film that touches the same subject. ACROSS THE LINE directed by Director X. brings us to North Preston, Nova Scotia, Canada’s Largest Black Community where one hopes to rise above the prejudices, while the others try to clip the wings of the one who wishes to have a better life.” – Canadian Film Festival Movie Reviews

“This film explores racism in a way that feels very unique. Stephan James is outstanding in his role, which only serves to bring the points of the film home even more. It’s very powerful and does an amazing job of showing people who don’t have to face racism on a daily basis just how incredibly difficult it can make even the simplest things become.” – Toronto Film Scene

“X’s strong visual storytelling skills carry the film home, and herald a promising big-screen career.” – The Globe and Mail

“…makes a powerful study for black and white tensions” – Cinemablographer

Hidden Love

Acclaimed actress Isabelle Huppert stars in this downbeat tale of a suicidal mental patient trapped in an endless maze of despair following the death of her only child.

Initially raised in an acrid household, later locked into a dicey marriage, and ultimately saddled with a daughter she never wanted, Danielle attempts to take her own life multiple times before doctors are left with no other choice than to lock her away for the sake of her own safety. Not even sympathetic psychiatrist Dr. Neilson (Greta Scacchi) seems able to break through to the stoic patient whose hollow gaze that hints that any hope for salvation has long been lost.

Winner: European Silver Ribbon, Italian National Syndicate of Film Journalists

Nominated: Golden Marc’Aurelio Award, Rome Film Fest

“Isabelle Huppert once again reaffirms her status as one of the world’s greatest actresses; the film has many pleasures to offer, but her performance as a mother devastated by her own apparent inability to feel is chief among them, and would in itself be good cause to seek this one out and give it a look. Recommended. – DVD Talk

“…a movie that knows exactly who it is about” – Roger Ebert

“The image of suicidal Danielle (Huppert), seated in the office of caring shrink Dr. Nielsen (Greta Scacchi), is that of a woman who has stared down the dark, deep hole of her own demise and psychic defeat. It is yet another reminder that there is arguably no other thesp in world cinema who dares push her characters to such radical limits while remaining resolutely human.” – Variety

God’s Outlaw: The Story of William Tyndale


The church state called it heresy; a crime punishable by death. William Tyndale called it God’s word.

A true story, God’s Outlaw is about international politics, church intrigue, cold-blooded betrayal, and false justice ending in a criminal’s death. But it’s also about victorious faith and spiritual triumph over some of the greatest political and religious forces known in the 16th century.

A simple God-seeking man, William Tyndale somehow became one of the most wanted men in England and all throughout Europe. Pursued by King Henry VIII, Lord Chancellor Sir Thomas More, and the Pope’s personal legate Cardinal Wolsey, Tyndale darted across Europe to avoid capture — always pushing to complete the task that obsessed him.

The task was translating the Bible into English and publishing it for his fellow countrymen — Englishmen who lived in a country where the Bible and even prayers in English were outlawed by a harsh and rigid religious establishment.

Today William Tyndale is renowned as “the father of the English Bible,” and is recognized as one of the major leaders of the English Reformation. But the tale of how he lived and died as “God’s Outlaw” is a compelling “rest-of-the-story,” and is especially a moving encouragement for modern people of faith.

Starring Roger Rees, Willoughby Goddard, Keith Barron, Oona Kirsch, Bernard Archard and more.

Notable critical acclaim: 

WINNER: Gold award / Houston International Film Festival

WINNER: Best Cinematography / Christian Film Distribution Association

“This story of the life of early English Bible translator William Tyndale is a gem in the crown…” – Visual Parable

“While God’s Outlaw might seem at first like a fictitious adventure story, this award-winning drama is the true story of William Tyndale. Tyndale was a brilliant 16th-century linguist capable of speaking seven languages. His passion was to translate the Bible into English so that even a plowman could have the word of God available to him. At that time, the Bible and even prayer were denied to the English people in their own language. Because of Tyndale’s work, he was declared a heretic and an outlaw, and was pursued by Henry VIII, Sir Thomas More and Cardinal Wolsey. For ten years he eluded capture until his betrayal by a trusted friend landed him in prison. At his trail he sounded very much like Martin Luther in his refusal to recant his works. He was declared a heretic and, eventually, burned at the stake. In an ironic twist two years later, Henry VIII ordered copies of Tyndale’s Bible be placed in every church. Today, Tyndale is recognized as the father of the English Bible.” – Library Alive

“You can thank the 16th century rebel William Tyndale — the “father of the English Bible” — for not having to read scripture in Latin, the preferred language of Tudor England’s Catholic Church, which kept rigid control over the dissemination of God’s word (the Latin Bible assured church leaders that the rabble who formed their congregations would never sully the Word of God with their sweat-stained fingers). William Tyndale changed all of that with his desire to make the Bible available to all, eventually becoming the most hunted man in England (Tyndale would complete his English translation of the New Testament in 1525 in Germany; a decade later he would be executed). Roger Rees (The Emperor’s Club, The Life and Adventures of Nicholas Nickleby) vividly brings Tyndale to life in this feature-length historical drama that draws on the spectacularly beautiful English countryside to tell its story. DVD extras include an abridged version with commentary by religious scholar Ken Curtis, and a DVD-ROM-accessible article and study guide/worksheets in PDF format. Recommended.” – Video Librarian

All My Friends Are Funeral Singers

“You must embrace the avante garde. It [All My Friends are Funeral Singers] certainly embodies art house. It’s the kind of film that bears repeat viewings” – StarkInsider

Starring Angela Bettis (Girl Interrupted, Carrie, May) as Zel.

Zel is a fortune teller. She works out of her century-old house removing clients’ aches and pains, advising gamblers, and channeling cranky spirits for a quick check in with their loved ones. Zel is very good at her chosen profession, but also receives some unique assistance.

For as long as she can remember she has shared her home with a group of ghosts — a priest, a bride, a mute child, some washed up vaudevillians and a noisy, sight-impaired group of musicians, all who pass on incredible knowledge and abilities from beyond the world of the living.

All goes on at the family homestead as it has for generations, until a mysterious light appears in the woods. The ghosts suddenly realize they are trapped, and forge a rebellion, tormenting Zel with all the aggravation and insanity they can muster. And when Zel uncovers the origins of these spirits, she is forced to choose between her comfortable if strange existence and letting go of the only family she has ever known.

Featuring an original score by Calofone, All My Friends are Funeral Singers was a festival darling with appearances at Sarasota, Sundance and SXSW.

“An unqualified crowd-pleaser” – Pulse

“I can’t recommend All My Friends Are Funeral Singers enough. Between the beautiful cinematography by Darryl Miller, the outstanding performances by the film’s cast and the haunting score provided by Califone, the film is an unqualified crowd-pleaser.” – The Carrying on of a Wayward Son

“A strong optional purchase” – Video Librarian

Boonville Redemption

When you look for the truth, you’ll find grace.

It’s 1906 and 13 year-old Melinda is unhappy with the hand that life has dealt her. Born out of wedlock and scorned by many, Melinda desperately wants to know what happened to her real father, but no one will tell her.

Determined to do all within her power to find her father, Melinda’s bravery compels some of the townspeople to reveal the dark secrets that they have kept to themselves for years.

Boonville Redemption is a contemporary example of a high quality independently produced faith-based film using a classic tale format to deliver its message. True to the western genre, the film ropes in numerous period related subjects including quilting, square dancing, horses, and more. It additionally ties into a book of the same name  which has received 5 Doves awards, while the film has received 4. There is a strong anti-domestic abuse message in the film which also carries a solid Gospel message of forgiveness and redemption.

The film is perfectly cast and stars living legend Pat Boone, multiple Emmy award winner Ed Asner, and multiple Academy award nominee Diane Ladd, Richard Tyson, Emily Hoffman.

““Boonville Redemption” is exactly what the title proclaims: a story of redemption. [It] has a lot going for it. We are delighted to award the movie our “Faith-Friendly” Seal.” – Dove Foundation

“Boonville Redemption is a beautifully shot film with authentic locations, wardrobe, and hairstyles” – Faith Flix

On the Road, Somewhere (Algún Lugar)


In Santiago, best friends Oliver, Moises and Hemingway are preparing for a ritual known to middle-class teenagers around the world—one last carefree summer road trip, just before college, when the first steps into adulthood will begin and everything they know will change.

The boys map a route from Montecristi in the north to points east, with an eventual destination of Pedernales in the south, where Oliver’s high school girlfriend Veronica is staying with her grandmother, until she leaves to study in New York in the fall. Along the way, the car breaks down frequently, leaving the three boys stranded with nearly every character under the Dominican sun.

As their hilarious conversations, arguments and riffs on popular culture, national identity and politics build momentum, an emblematic snapshot of both the joys and insecurities of contemporary Dominican society emerges.

Tanna

NOMINATED FOR BEST FOREIGN LANGUAGE FILM – ACADEMY AWARDS® 2017

 

http://68.media.tumblr.com/f5340f184f0fcf425f429c1775a552e1/tumblr_inline_oae9jjpnVS1tupskl_1280.png

Nominated for 5 Australian Academy Awards – the AACTRAS – including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Cinematography, Best Sound, and Best Original Score.

Based on the true story and performed by the people of Yakel tanna-posterin Vanuatu. The critically acclaimed film is a living exploration into cultural anthropology with modern-day significance. The film’s stunning cinematography is rivaled only by the powerful reality that the people of Yakel live today the way they lived thousands of years ago.

Tanna was shot in an unusual way. None of the actors are literate or had any experience acting. The story and dialogue were developed through work-shopping and improvisation while on location.

Background: People first arrived on Tanna in Vanuatu about 3,000 years ago when the Lapita sailed from the Bismarck archipelago in Papua New Guinea to colonize the islands. They brought along pigs, chickens, pottery and a host of crops that are still the mainstay on Tanna today.

The English Captain James Cook was the first European to visit Tanna in 1774, followed by missionaries in the 19th century. In the mid 20th century, a powerful local movement rejecting the colonial presence emerged, advocating a return to Kastom and abandonment of western clothes, money and schools. Though the leaders were arrested, exiled, and imprisoned, the movement swept the island and still retains respect to this day.

Today, Yakel is one of a number of villages in Tanna’s central mountain chain that have held on to their fully traditional Kastom lifestyle, maintaining its belief system and social structure despite contact with the modern world. Theirs is a deliberate choice to protect and nurture the old ways.

tanna-pic-1The Yakel tribe of Tanna island, Vanuatu, still hunt with bows and arrows and make their clothes and houses entirely from materials gathered in the surrounding jungle. Their days begin with the rising sun and end with a kava ceremony at sunset. It’s a life that has all but disappeared in modern times, yet people here are proud of their culture – ‘Kastom’ – and want to share it with the rest of the world.

For seven months the filmmakers lived together with the tribe, exchanging food, stories, ceremonies, laughter, pain and adventures. The result is a wonderful production that brings to light an ancient culture that exists in our modern world.

Synopsis: Tanna is set in the South Pacific where Wawa, a young girl from one of the last traditional tribes, falls in love with her chief’s grandson, Dain. When an inter-tribal war escalates, Wawa is unknowingly betrothed as part of a peace deal. The young lovers run away, but are pursued by enemy warriors intent on killing them. They must choose between their hearts and the future of the tribe, while the villagers must wrestle with preserving their traditional culture and adapting it to the increasing outside demands for individual freedom.

The theatrically released film has played in New York, San Francisco, Seattle, Atlanta, Detroit Santa Fe and more, and is also touring through festivals world-wide. Below are just some of them:

Critics are raving about Tanna:

“The movie’s Australian directors, Martin Butler and Bentley Dean, who wrote the script with John Collee, have an attention to earthly detail that gives the movie a beauty to rival a nature documentary. But they also have a keen anthropological eye. The pair spent seven months with the tribe, getting to know its members and their traditions and rituals, which are seamlessly integrated into the plot, educating the viewer without making the tribe’s experience seem overly exotic.” – The Washington Post

tanna-pic3“For time out of mind, or at least as far back as Robert Flaherty’s 1926 “Moana” and F.W. Murnau’s 1931 “Tabu,” filmmakers have been going to the South Seas in search of exotic cultures and compelling stories. “Tanna” is the latest case in point, and one of the best.– Los Angeles Times

Tanna is a beautifully filmed tale about lovers who ultimately spurred real-life changes in tribal law regarding arranged marriages. Highly recommended” – Video Librarian

“Performances from the (untrained) cast are magnetic; if it was a challenge for them to learn how to act in front of a camera, they certainly don’t show it. And while in a narrative sense this ground has been walked many times before, the Yakel people’s passion to tell this story is undoubtedly at the heart of the film’s success. Tanna has a warm, shimmering vitality. Like the trees and the birds, the frame feels alive.” – The Guardian

“Written in collaboration with the Yakel tribe — who also acted in the movie — made Tanna amazingly authentic. The actors had no previous acting experience, yet they all mastered emotional storytelling. Their impressive acting skills are the reason this film is a must see. ” – The Eagle

The sight of kids joyously playing with a “penis sheath” is enough to make Tanna recommendable, but fortunately, there’s also far more to Bentley Dean and Martin Butler’s ethnographic drama…” – The Village Voice

DVD edition includes the short film “Story of The Making of Tanna”
