LEOPARD

 

Inspired by John Steinbeck's

'East of Eden'

 

The dark and mysterious LEOPARD centers around two disconnected brothers Tom and Jack, who are ostracized by the small village community surrounding them. 

 

Jack returns after 5 years with the sudden and unexplained death of their father and the brothers are immediately at odds with one another.  Jack's presence pushing Tom's loner mentality into a dangerous psychosis and opening an old wound with the locals as to why he originally left. 

 

Things take a surreal turn when they find a girl apparently left for dead in the moors and Tom becomes wildly obsessed with looking after her. 

 

What follows is beautiful, tragic and bizarre, as the brothers search for a resolution to their past and their relationship to one another in this mesmerizing tale of love, violence and redemption.

A SPELL ON YOU

 

Better than Bridget Jones Diaries

 

A SPELL ON YOU follows the story of a young woman trying desperately to manifest love, navigating the pitfalls of growing-up and hoping to find HIM along the way.

 

This masterful film sits somewhere between Downton Abbey and Bridget Jones Diary.

 

Becky has recently finished university and is working a dead-end office job. Why can't she find the man of her dreams> Recognizing her match proves tricky when she in't altogether sure who she is. The quest seems as mystifying as pulling a rabbit out of a hat.

 

This big-hearted romantic comedy gives us a peek into the millennial generation's search for love. They don't walk are in are along the Seine in perfectly cut trench coats. They don't hold tight to a handsome man on the back of a Vespa. They drink far too much, dance ironically in circles, and snog their friends.

 

Growing up is not for the faint of heart.

 

'A SPELL ON YOU' is a film for the funny, ugly, and most importantly the magical in us all.

 

 

-Such a relatable film for so many people right now.

BBC, Radio One

 

-One of the most deceptively important British movies for a long time.

THE OTHER BARRIO

 

Reminiscent of Polanski's 'Chinatown' 

 

 

This socially impactful film noir is based on true events, about housing inspector Roberto Morales who investigates the suspicious circumstances of a fatal fire in a residential hotel in San Francisco's rapidly gentrifying Latino Mission District and finds himself face to face with murder in the streets, corruption at City Hall and the mysterious Sofia Nido, a beautiful but dangerous flame from his past.

 

This stunningly filmed and superbly directed thriller deals with a hot, current topic millions will relate to: the gentrification of low-income ethnic neighborhoods which makes the movie extremely timely.

 

The screenplay was written by San Francisco Poet Laureate Alejandro Murguia. 

 

Starring: Richard Montoya (Falling Down, Nacho Libre)

 

The movie has just entered the festival circuit and already won Outstanding NorCal Feature at the Sacramento International Film Festival

WALTER & TANDOORI'S CHRISTMAS

 

An Ecological Animation Film

The First "Multi-platform" Property on the Topic of the Environment

 

 

It is just before Christmas in the village of Hart's Landing and an ominous shadow threatens to cast darkness over the tiny town. A wealthy businessman without scruples, is building a gigantic Department Store smack in the middle of the village. With a thousand tricks up his sleeve, nothing appears to be able to stop him. Buy, Buy, always Buy seems to be his favorite refrain. 

 

Walter and Tandoori are quick to realize the underhanded and unsound nature of this venture! Indeed, nothing seems to go right any longer: deterioration of water and air quality, sudden changes in behavior of citizens for the worse! 

 

The challenge that awaits our hero is immense and the clock is ticking.  Walter must restore the peace and harmony of village life to Hart's Landing in time for Christmas.
