Road to the Open

Struggling after the loss of his wife, the future looks bleak for Jerry McDonald. As a single-parent, tennis has become his only semi-social outlet with his eccentric best friend, Miles, who’s working through anger management with the help of his life coach (Judd Nelson).

Reluctantly, Jerry caves to Miles’ pressure to play in a local tournament that could earn them a once in a life-time slot in an exhibition match at a prestigious national tournament, The Open. But they‘ll have to meet the infamous Gollant Brothers (Eric Roberts and John Schneider) who haven’t lost club champions status for a decade. Let the training begin.

Tyler, Jerry’s precocious 10 year-old daughter, has faithfully accepted that her mom has gone to heaven, but longs to see Dad “happy again”. For Jerry, the thought of finding love is as foreign as winning the tournament, until Tyler asks the looming question, “Do you think you’ll ever get married again?” Encouraged to step out, Jerry gets the guts to talk with Sam, a cute co-worker and new friend. Tyler loves her and it appears things are looking up.

Life is full of twists and turns, and some are hard to overcome. But a second serve is a precious gift, and a double fault can be tragic. For Jerry, Road to the Open is a journey to live again, to love again. For movie goers, it’s a classic underdog story that is waiting to bring smiles and cheers.

Forget Us Not

Forget us Not Poster.jpg

During WWII Hitler embarked on a systematic campaign to annihilate the Jewish population. But his plans to create an Aryan Nation did not end with the unprecedented persecution of the Jews. From 1933 to 1945, millions of individuals were arrested, shipped to labor and death camps and classified for their various offenses using a color coded system of triangles and other symbols. An estimated 11 million lost their lives. Thousands more survived and bear the scars emotionally and physically of a life brutally lived.

Robert Wagemann, born with a physical disability, finds himself targeted twice. Nearly euthanized for being 'imperfect', he is snuck out of the hospital by his mother and spends the war hiding with his parents who have arrest warrants out against them for being Jehovah's Witnesses.

Ceija Stojka, a Roma girl, sees her father arrested and dragged off to Dachau, where he later dies. Shortly after, she is rounded up with the rest of her family and shipped to Auschwitz. 

Vera Young, a Polish Catholic teen is separated from the rest of her family and sent to a concentration camp, where she survives each brutal day by sewing uniforms for her Nazi captors before being sent on a 900 mile death march.

Natalia Orloff, a Ukraine child, is marched with her family to the Polish border before being put on a train and sent to a work camp where sickness and starvation dominates her life and memories. 

Forget Us Not is a moving, in depth look at the persecution and subsequent death of the 5 million non Jewish victims of the WWII Holocaust and the lives of those who survived.

Through stories of survivors and historical footage, these lesser known voices are brought to life. From the Roma and Sinti people who were also targeted for complete annihilation to the thousands of Catholic Priests who were killed for speaking out, Forget Us Not strives to educate and give tribute to those who were killed for their religion, ethnicity, political views, sexual orientation and physical handicaps.

 

16 Acres

16 acres poster.jpg

The rebuilding of the World Trade Center is the most architecturally, politically and emotionally complex urban renewal project in American history. From the beginning, the rebuilding effort has been fraught with controversy, drama, delays and politics. To date, the struggle has encompassed ten years, nineteen government agencies, a dozen projects, and over $20 billion and counting. 

Aside from the staggering engineering challenges of the site itself, a major complicating factor is the sheer number of interested parties. Politicians, developers, architects, insurance companies, local residents, and relatives of 9/11 victims all profess a claim to the site and are often in conflict with one another. According to The New York Times, “Where some saw lucrative real estate, others saw a graveyard. Where some saw Rockefeller Center or Lincoln Center or Grand Central Terminal, others saw Gettysburg.”

But what was once ground zero is now a frenzied construction site. Three thousand workers are building four of the tallest skyscrapers in America, an iconic – and complicated – train station, a performing arts center and a sacred memorial and museum. What will emerge in downtown Manhattan over the next few years will redefine the city – and the country – for generations. 

16 ACRES is the story of how and why this historic project got built. At the heart of the story is the dramatic tension between noblest intentions, the desire of everyone involved to “get it right,” and the politics, hubris, ego and ideology that is the bedrock of New York City. What does it say about us as New Yorkers, as Americans? 

As with all great urban projects, from the Pyramids to Rome’s Coliseum to Rockefeller Center, a small group of powerful people will dictate the outcome. With inside access to the project and these key players, 16 ACRES will tell the story behind the headlines. Who are these men and women? What motivates them? How will their personalities shape the project? And, ultimately, will it succeed?

The Firebird

the Firebird poster.jpg

Synopsis 

Omid flees his homeland because of his father's revolutionary poetry for freedom. To endure mandatory detention and deportation from Australia, Omid trusts in the wisdom of the great poets and his father's words to avoid internal surrender. From the depths of political exclusion an artist is born.

Director Statement 
My polemic in storytelling is always about those living at the fringes of society, whether they are victims of xenophobia or even victims of their own internal psychological struggle.

My love for the Italian neo-realist filmmakers of the 1940s and 1950s is because their films were also concerned with dismissed individuals and their challenges to survive their marginalization. 

I reflected on the types of films my hero filmmakers such as Rossellini, De Sica and Visconti would have made had they been living in Australia today. I considered that they would not have retreated from the encounter of making a film about so-called ‘boat’ people. I did not want to shy away from making such a film. I did not want my own fears of condemnation to render me silent or dissuade me. Therefore in making this film I wanted to tell a difficult story genuinely, a story that transcends political issues and xenophobia, in order to make a narrative about humanity, and a lyrical visual about a simple human being; ultimately indistinguishable from the audience and the film maker.

Telling A You

Telling A You Poster.jpg

Set on the island of Bermuda in the 1960s, TELLING A YOU is an animated short film featuring the voices of Bermudian actors, Dimitri Philpott and Lexy Correia. The story captures the romantic 'meet-cute' of a man and a woman colliding at a street corner. While this may not appear noteworthy, his memory lovingly recalls every detail of the incident, thus turning a seemingly ordinary moment in time into an extraordinary moment in two people's lives.

Cinematographically, there is the added experiment of the two-layered storytelling, voice and visuals, taking turns in delivering each instant of the narration before the other, ultimately concluding the story in sync.

TELLING A YOU is a reminder of those small moments of fortune that enrich the lives of those embracing the unexpected, as well as a tribute to the courageous ones living life with an open heart. Written, directed and produced by Margarethe Baillou, TELLING A YOU is the filmmaker's personal hommage to Bermuda, celebrating the pastel colors, shapes and sounds of that tiny shrimp-shaped speck of land in the middle of the Atlantic where the beaches are pink, and time is stacked away in a treasure chest.

 

The film’s title was inspired by the Russian tale about a bird that is both a blessing and a curse to its captor. The vision follows the story of a young orphaned asylum seeker who flees his country with his parents due to his father’s revolutionary poetry for freedom and ends up in an Australian detention center, only to be deported offshore to be processed and await refugee status. But in doing the film I discovered that The Firebird was ultimately about the birth of an artist. Omid, our protagonist, grows up to become a musical director whose talent was born out of political exclusion. It was his trust and understanding in the wisdom of the great poets and his father’s plight for freedom that enabled him to survive psychologically while imprisoned.

In the film there is a moment dear to me when Omid discovers the power of art. It is when he soothes a young woman called Arezoo upon their deportation from Australia by reciting the Persian poetry of Rumi in the ancient Persian tongue.

All of the actors are making debut performances.

In its most-pure and free-flowing state, it exists in the temperate rainforests where annual precipitation can total over 15ft (4.9m). Temperate rainforests capture, retain, and recycle water and represent one of the rarest habitats on Earth. But today, over half of temperate rainforests have been extirpated.These habitats need to be preserved to protect our freshwater sources and all the biological organisms (including humans) that depend on them.

Ghost Fish of the Wimahi poster.jpg

Ghost Fish of the Wimahi

Salmon and trout play an important role in many cultures of today. In the past, these fish sustained generations of humans both as food and of worship.

The ancient fish runs of the Pacific Northwest and Columbia River are still with us today but overfishing, dams, habitat destruction and pollution continue to take its toll. These relics of a past age cannot survive into the next unless the impacts of human activities are curbed.

This film shows the beauty of these fish in their native habitats displaying natural behavior. The large fish migrations of the past are a testament to the capability and elasticity of these remarkable creatures if left free from the impacts of pollution, dams, overfishing, and habitat destruction.

Throughout the shoot, the film's 'jookers' and ballet dancers learned from each other, inspired each other, and blended their respective dances to create, in their words: bookin'.

Look Up!

 

Telly Award winning Director makes a terrifying discovery while testing time lapse camera equipment, and accidentally playing the footage backwards.

You will never look at the sky the same way again after watching this film. 

Look Up ! is a new genre of documentary with an integrated Mobile App component - The film addresses the world's most dangerous environmental program ever - GeoEngineering, SRM (Solar Radiation Management) and Stratospheric Aerosol Spray Programs: The science of using airplanes to spray the sky with toxic metals and particles, with the intention of blocking the sun and forcing climate change while creating unknown consequences. GeoEngineering causes Climate change-by definition. As governments continue to emphasize CLIMATE CHANGE, the experimentation of GeoEngineering, SRM, and Stratospheric Aerosol Spray programs continue over our heads.

 

The film also looks at the relationship of the key GeoEngineering ingredient, as listed on their US patent- also discussed in the film Aluminum and its relationship to the explosion of out of control Aluminum related diseases such as Autism and Alzheimer's especially early onset. as the disease increase rate also parallels all evidence of the experimentation ramp-up of the program. 

This is the most comprehensive film communication tool ever created.

This film is in a totally unique category- the concept has never been done- I believe it will be the future model for initiative based documentaries, and politically motivated communications.

Visions of Mary Frank

When Mary Frank began her artwork in the 1950s, she was known in the New York City arts community as a beautiful, young woman. Photographed by Walker Evans, Edward Steichen, Ralph Gibson and her then-husband Robert Frank, the pictures captured their vision of her. They did not present her as an artist. Filmmaker John Cohen has known Frank and her work for over 50 years. This new film is a window into her vision. Frank's creations never fit into categories of Abstract Expressionist, Pop, Conceptual, new expressionism, outsider art. Her work is in nearly every major American museum. Her explorations take form in drawings, triptychs, paintings, prints, photographs and sculpture. In clay, magnificent female figures emerge from the earth, evoking mythic gods and human frailties.

Abstract ink drawings seem to come out of nowhere. Following a secret choreography, they take on characteristics and moods of the music and narrate a story that appears to be laid out in the music. The interplay of timid encounters and dynamic pursuits, the agile lightness and confrontation, awakens a multitude of associations e.g. of birds, plants or the under-water world, which in turn stimulates many different emotional impressions.
