Film synopsis: 
<p>&ldquo;AGENT ORANGE: 30 YEARS LATER&rdquo; is a drama-documentary about the victims of Agent Orange 30 years after the Viet Nam War. The film tells the story of several victims of Agent Orange - from the North to the South of Viet Nam - who were exposed to the substance when it was sprayed during the war. It interweaves compelling interviews with images culled from the archives to tell the tales of horror of people, from babies to grandparents, male and female, North and South Viet Nam living with life-altering choices to make: pro-life or abortion, alien diseases, deformities, fear, loneliness, suicidal thoughts, pain, and poverty. It is more of a drama than a reportage, or an observation. The goal of this documentary is to make the viewers aware of the impact of dioxin on the environment and the people. The film also underscores the need for compassion and heightens a sense of responsibility for our actions towards each other as stewards of the planet without regard for political differences.</p>

Film reviews: 
<p>- &ldquo;The film was artistically photographed and edited,&hellip;.&rdquo; by Jan Turetsky, L.A. Mentary: The Greater Los Angeles Area Mensa (1/2009) - &quot;Despite the horror, the film is at times intensely moving and beautiful, showing also the better side of human nature&mdash;qualities like kindness, compassion, and forgiveness.&quot; by Reel Earth - Environmental Film Festival (4/2009) - &quot;The film was stark, powerful and very effective. Courageous to go to those most deeply affected, look into their eyes, and explore the depths of their pain. We were deeply moved.&quot; by Alice and Lincoln Day, Producers of &quot;Scarred Lands and Wounded Lives&quot; (6/2009) - &quot;Agent Orange: 30 Years Later wrenches and outrages, as it must.&quot; by Alan Scherstuhl, The Pitch, Kansas City, MO (9/2009) - &quot;Agent Orange: 30 Years Later is crudely made but the sobering subject matter, and Trinh&#39;s sensitivity for the victims on all sides of the conflict make it worth catching.&quot; by Dan Lybarger, Metro Kansas City News &amp; Entertainment,</p>

Hello from halfamiddleman

Hello Filmmakers,
My name is Rob Mankowitz and I was the casting dir. and a producer of
the indie film "The Utopian Society" starring Malin Akerman. We were in
more than 40 film festivals...too long ago.
My producing partner and director of the film was John P. Aguirre. We
are still collaborating on indie projects. However, the big news is
that we have recently broken through the "sales agent" barrier to deal
DIRECTLY with arguably the largest independent video distributor in
North America. They can place your film on itunes, vod, cable &
other outlets. We have cultivated a strong relationship with the vp of
business development of this company who has literally said we are the
FIRST and only producers/filmmakers he will accept content from
directly! This is called an OUTPUT deal. We have overcome the greatest
obstacle in the distro game.
As filmmakers who have been put through the ringer or more precisely
ripped off in the past we understand how incredibly frustrating it can
be to put your blood, sweat and tears into making your film with the
goal of acclaim and financial reward only to find that through shady
practices you end up making pennies...if that. Most sales agents who
shop your film to various entities will charge upwards of 30% per sale
we will be SIGNIFICANTLY lower.
At this time we are seeking to partner with filmmakers who have high
quality FINISHED FILMS ready for the marketplace. If you are interested
in discussing our unique opportunity in greater detail please contact
us via phone or email. Not through this site...        ( p:323-466-1905
