East Doc Platform to Focus on “New Resistance”

user
The largest industry event dedicated to documentary filmmaking in Central and Eastern Europe reflects on the rise of populist regimes in the region and examines the options available for fighting efforts to suppress critical voices. “In the course of the year, we see dozens of Polish and Hungarian producers who, under various pretexts, suddenly lose funding for their projects. Yet in fact, it’s in reaction to their public expression of anti-regime opinions,” says Tereza &S...

"Barn Dance" (working title) - animated musical short

user
Hello, all! I am currently developing a short animated musical film with a lot of Cow-reography, tentatively titled "Barn Dance". If the story stands (and dances!) on its own, maybe even makes some headway in festivals, I am hoping to milk that for all it is worth--to get permission to use a specific piece of music.  If that doesn't work, I can come up with some music on my own or enlist help, but it was written with one song in mind. Please check out the attached script.&n...

Many people, both powerful and weak, will try to build walls, but the dreams of the next generation cannot be denied."...

ECU Spotlight on Elisabeth Moss

“Acting is not stupid, but it’s a very strange profession, honestly,” confessed Elisabeth Moss more than three years ago, when the last season of Mad Men was about to air. “My job is to get up, and get dressed in someone else’s clothes, and go and pretend that I’m someone else. Who does that?” It’s a funny observation, but if anything is certain, it’s that Moss is better at it than almost anyone. She’s a master of “pre...

MOVIE REVIEW: GOOD TIME

user
Since Nightcrawler, no film has better distilled American malaise better than the Safdie brothers’ ironically-named Good Time (2017). The film stars Robert Pattinson in a breakout role as Connie Nikas, an on-the-lam criminal in New York City trying to bail his mentally disabled brother Nick out of jail following a failed bank heist. As he hustles to come up with the $10,000, his night snowballs into a frenzied crime spree that feels utterly surreal as it plunges him into the...
