Dreams of the Past

Film Directed by: Dmitri Frolov (Genre: Drama, Mockumentary, Short)

"A film about peace, love and war. Dedicated to the 100th anniversary of the end of the Civil War in Russia. The film takes place at the end of the summer of 1917, when Russia and the whole world were at a crossroads between two eras. None of the people could even imagine how much his life would change in the very near future. In a strange way, the atmosphere of the film echoes our current reality and what is happening in Russia today. According to the form of visualization, the film belongs to experimental mockumentary cinema. To give greater authenticity to what is happening on the screen, the shooting was carried out on black-and-white negatives of 16 and 35 mm, hand-operated cameras were used and the material was developed in manual spiral tanks. The documentary chronicle of the Kolchak army of 1919 and the White army in the Far East of 1922 is embedded in the finale of the film."

Film Directed by: Borys Shusterman, Mykhailo Ozerov (Genre: Short)

"Conventional wisdom - with a touch of joking undertone - suggests that the shortest fling can become the most significant one for a man; this is when it is unambiguously supported by a paternity test result. Of course, such a "literary work" is usually based on, albeit accidental, but ... Treason. So what should the heroes, husband and wife, mother and father with three children, do? Should they raise the concern, should they reveal the whole truth? But it can hurt deeply the one you love, even cause a breakup. So should they cover up the truth? Should they cover up it forever and would bear this burden for the rest of their lives? But it is not that easy to handle the pressure. Still, there is a way out, and the heroes of the film have found a solution - it turns out that they can do neither. It is enough just to love each other. Indeed, it seems that having such explosive characters our heroes won’t definitely be able to manage it without the help of this tool."

"Hermes, the most human-like of all the Olympian gods, is now old. On this day he remembers himself as a younger transgendered man, irrepressible but needy of his father Zeus and his aunt Aphrodite. He roams the world, on a quest for love and self-validation. He misbehaves it's true, but this is not a cautionary tale, he is after all a god and can do as he pleases. Remembering Hermes is also a 4th dimensional being so he views time via eternal recurrence. You see, TIME is circular and in layers for a 4th dimensional being. Memories are also seen both clear or hazy depending on their importance. In the beginning it was young Hermes quest to find a way to fully love himself inside the inter-related domains of earth, sky, fire and water, in order to be successful and be a fully realized Messenger of the Gods. Filmed in many wondrous locations around the globe since 1998, this story commingles the divine with the mundane across the vast spectrum of the imagination utilizing the five elements water, air, earth and fire & music; to arrive at it's quintessence. Note: My partner for the last 38 years, Producer Byron Ayanoglu who plays Zeus, and Paul William Roberts who plays Hermes Sr. have recently passed away during this past summer. May Lord Byron Ayanoglu and Paul William Roberts RIP! I am so devastated about having lost my partner Lord Byron and my best friend Paul William Robert who was an Oxford Scholar. "

"The fallout of a sibling's suicide on a family, the accelerated deaths of the parents and the investigation into the root cause. Brian was “the glue that held everything together,” recalls a family member in the first few minutes of “Masterjam.” To some it probably wasn’t a surprise, then, when things fell apart after he took his own life. Brian’s brother James uses the footage gathered during his time as the family’s unofficial historian to examine the circumstances of Brian’s passing, the deterioration of their parents, and the roles that music, prescription drugs, and mental illness have played in the collective life of the Curry family. Simply edited, delicately produced, and fiercely honest, “Masterjam” presents the challenges of American (and African-American) family life in a vulnerable and relatable way."

Hell in Paradise

Film Directed by: Tiziana caminada (Genre: Documentary)

"HELL IN PARADISE No, this is not another documentary on pollution. This film shows who is paying with his life and health the consequences of pollution. It all began with a book published in Switzerland “Salento: destination cancer”; about the heel of the boot, the deepest southern part of Italy, a region renown for centenarian olive trees and the Mediterranean diet which has been transformed into a living hell. The air, the earth, the fresh water of Salento are poisoned; cancer cases have increased by 40% in 10 years. Children die from leukemia or brain tumors (+51%). Oil residues, dioxine and glyphosate are the perpetrators. The Olive trees die by the thousands: is a warning to the human? Northern Europa comfort and profit have transformed this south of Italy into a giant dustbin, at such an extent that people die. With the Italo-Swiss author Giovanni, we travelled from north to south, just like the rubbish, and witnessed the extent of human losses and environmental damage. More importantly, we met and listened to those who live in that hell to see how they think that they will pull through. The documentary starts from Switzerland with a « scream from the heart » and returns with the last greedy « Swiss Idea » in the form of an ultimate aggression to that land and to our planet: the Trans Adria Pipeline (TAP)."

LITTLE BIG STEVE.jpg

LITTLE BIG STEVE

Film Directed by: Tiziana caminada (Genre: Documentary)

"A portrait of a guy with surprising resilience and his return to the shanty town, where he began his life! Twenty years later, the same guy like David’s leads a fight against Goliath to defend children’s rights. Here we have an experience which is strikingly 100% African. Mathare, Nairobi ; a shanty town where one million and two hundred thousand people survive in unhealthy living conditions among disorderly and foul smelling shacks. A strong-willed and discerning six-year-old decides to go to school against his parents’ will, who would probably prefer using him for his shrewdness in other profitable ventures for themselves, or to support them by working. Steve’s decision led him to be forced to live on the streets for eight years, because his family rejected him. He was helped by other inhabitants, who were as poor as his parents. His school teachers and a priest helped him pay his school fees. Meanwhile he witnessed his parents become alcoholics and his siblings were led into thieving, drug-taking/drug- dealing and prostitution! Twenty years later, Steve returns to the shanty town of Mathare where he was born. He now has a diploma in psychology has studied and worked abroad. He feels that he is meant to be back, to look after the abandoned children, who are regularly abused - physically and sexually – like he was as a child. Statistics confirm that half of the children who live in shantytowns are abused. Steve’s involvement to defend children’s rights began early when he was in high school and he created a Kids’ Club where children were provided with services to listen and speak, and dialogue spaces. He knows that it is best to act early, when children are very young, as his studies and the analysis of his own experience have confirmed. When children are aware of the dangers they face, it is easier for them to deal with their situation. If they know that there are basic rights to education access to food and that beating or sexual abuse are unlawful, those youngsters will find it maybe easier to stand up for their rights and to get out of/get away from a life of abuse and exploitation. With a small sum he had put aside while working with a NGO in the countryside in Kenya, Steve built a small building inside Mathare where a nursery school opened before the end of 2017. Today, this school welcomes 220 children. Gang leaders and all those who exploit children from the shanty town in Mathare dislike Steve’s activities. Steve knows the shantytown’s rules well and he is not afraid of walking on their toes. Despite poverty and ignorance, Steve knows that people in Mathare support his actions. By working with women, and many raise their children alone, he knows that he will reach a few hearts and save some lives."
