Indebted

Director: Márton "Mara" Jelinkó.
Elli (Heidi Lindén), a university student, has a problem. Living in the poor area, but partying in the upscale clubs of the city is taking its financial toll, that can not be covered by her part time job as a cleaning lady. Even after her grandmothers antique necklace has been pawned, there just doesn't seem to be enough money for her lifestyle and to pay back the loans she has accumulated. So she decides to make money out of her one night stands and soon she settles into the lifestyle of a call-girl. Iiris (Kristiina Puukko), who has been forced into working with a small-time criminal group, has a problem of her own. She is in love with her colleague, Andrei (Juha-Tapio Arola), who doesn't even notice it. In a macho environment, where debts are collected via fists, there wouldn't be any room for the mushy stuff anyway. However, neighter of the women can foresee how much things will go wrong when Elli and Andrei meet one night and love springs its head up between them. Iiris is not going to just observe this from the sidelines and Elli is not going back to her old life without Andrei any more. Only when the women are forced to work together, do they come face to face with the facts that there are some mistakes that cannot be undone just like that. ”Indebted” is the debut feature as a director for Márton Jelinkó, who has worked in the Finnish independent scene as a cinematographer, for many years. It was made on a shoestring budget, using digital acquisition and utilizing an experimental improvisational method of working with the actors and combining that with the visual style of the camerawork.

Trust Me

Director: Roberto Rizzo.
A six degree of separation story, where Ponzi scheme's, drug dealing, and money laundering all meet in a disloyal world of betrayals. Thomas, a white collar Ponzi schemer has a particular way to meet his clients, or better put his prey. A very charming good looking man, well spoken with kind manners betrays his clients with false promises of very good returns on their investments. Thomas runs into problems when he can’t back up his promises any longer. In order to keep his schemes going he needs to do something else to get more cash, and nothing better than money laundering. Thomas creates a money laundering system based on fake donations to different “Charities” all over Manhattan. With the help of his best friend, Al Genovesse, an associate of a prominent Las Vegas Hotel & Casino, Thomas is introduced to the underworld of business fraud and Mafia bosses. One of Al's referrals is Johnny Bramanti, a film producer who runs into trouble when a mafia boss, Michael Dileo, asks him to clean twenty million dollars from a drug deal. Johnny tries to refuse Michael’s offer as a silent partner in his movie business, telling him he needs to “think about it.” Very upset and violent, Michael reminds Johnny that ten years ago he helped him with some money to start his Sexy Films Production, and without “thinking “The money was ready to help. Johnny is literally against the wall and has no other alternative than to help Michael and clean the twenty million dollars for the sake of his life. Johnny wants to nail Michael but he has no proof; the money laundering won’t be enough because he knows that Michael has the best lawyers and always walks free of any charges at the increasing frustration of the DA’S office. Johnny’s only possibility comes when Michael wants to have his young mistress and prisoner, Brigitte, as a star in one of his movies. Johnny uses her to find the proof he needs to put Michael away for good. Her desperate pursuits of the evidence that will make her free, becomes very far reaching and looks more like an impossible task. Frustrated, she tries to escape, but, it proves an unsuccessful move.
