Ava DuVernay Gets Central Park Five Documentary Green Light From Netflix

The Central Park Five, five Black youth who were falsely accused in the case Central Park jogger rape case in 1989, will be the focus of a new docu-series from Ava DuVernay. As the famed director has done in the past, DuVernay is partnering with Netflix to bring the limited series to life.

Variety reports:

Participant Media, Tribeca Productions and Harpo Films are behind the limited series with Oprah Winfrey, Jeff Skoll, Jonathan King, Jane Rosenthal and Berry Welsh serving as executive producers alongside DuVernay. The project is the latest collaboration for Winfrey and DuVernay who worked together on the Oscar-winning “Selma” and OWN’s “Queen Sugar.” For DuVernay, the project marks a return to Netflix for the filmmaker who wrote and directed the platform’s 2016 documentary “13th.”

“I had an extraordinary experience working with Netflix on ’13th’ and am overjoyed to continue this exploration of the criminal justice system as a narrative project with Cindy Holland and the team there,” said DuVernay. “The story of the men known as Central Park Five has riveted me for more than two decades. In their journey, we witness five innocent young men of color who were met with injustice at every turn — from coerced confessions to unjust incarceration to public calls for their execution by the man who would go on to be the President of the United States.”

And if you haven’t seen DuVernay’s 13th documentary, do yourself a favor and fire up the Netflix, but we doubt there will be any chill after viewing the powerful examination of the criminal justice system.

Tab Hunter on Sophia Loren and the New Documentary About His Life

During Hollywood’s Golden Age, dreamy matinee idol Tab Hunter was the highest grossing movie star for Warner Bros. More than just a Hollywood heartthrob he starred in over 40 films including critically acclaimed movies like Battle Cry, That Kind of Woman and Damn Yankees. Hunter played opposite legends like Tallulah Bankhead, John Wayne, Sophia Loren, Natalie Wood, Gary Cooper, Rita Hayworth, Geraldine Page and Fred Astaire. He appeared on Broadway and on live TV. And if that wasn’t enough, his hit single “Young Love” exploded on the Billboard charts. The record took over the No. 1 spot knocking out a guy named Elvis Presley.

Last month, Tab Hunter Confidential, the documentary feature film about Hunter’s life and career, opened throughout the United States. When the film was shown at the esteemed Film Forum in New York City and the Cinema Arts Centre in Long Island, Hunter made an appearance at both locales and talked about the movie. Based on his autobiography of the same name, Tab Hunter Confidential features interviews with George Takei, Debbie Reynolds, Portia De Rossi, John Waters, Debbie Reynolds, Lainie Kazan, Connie Stevens and others.

For the very private Hunter, it took interviews conducted over the course of many years to have him share his stories. “At first I said who’d want to read a book on me…,” said Hunter about his autobiography which preceded and inspired the film. “But then I thought, why not get it from the horse’s mouth and not from some horse’s ass after I’m dead and gone?”

What was it like to work with Sophia Loren? And to dance for Bob Fosse? Will he ever go back to acting? Why did he turn down a part in the TV series 77 Sunset Strip? Tab Hunter gave Parade this exclusive interview.

Bushwick Bill Of The Geto Boys Working On Documentary

Bushwick Bill of The Geto Boys is in the process of creating a documentary about his life and he is asking for help from the Hip-Hop community.

“Bushwick Bill: A Geto Boy – A Documentary Film” will be “Chronicling the life of the gangsta rapper who happens to be a charming, hysterical one-eyed dwarf,” according to a statement. Bushwick was on of the various incarnations of the Geto Boys, but certainly one of the most visible.

Now, the OG rapper has set up a crowd funding site to help raise dollars to create the movie.

The film maker further made their case:

“For the past 3 years, we have been filming and documenting the life of the infamous Richard Shaw, AKA Bushwick Bill, original member of the Geto Boys and all around fascinating presence and one of the most unique entertainers ever.  Our desire to do a documentary on Bill has been one that stretches over a decade long.  It finally became a reality a few years ago when we were able to track Bill down in Austin, Texas.  A bit of a rolling stone, Bill may jump from town to town, but one thing is certain, no matter where he lands, people always recognize him. He is undoubtedly a hardcore rap legend. He has the stories to back it up.  He has rapped lyrics that command it.   And he literally has the scars to prove it.”

At present day, the film has raised $ 13,122 of the $ 50k goal with fans continuing to add on.

Check out a preview of the film below.

‘Fresh Dressed’ Director Sacha Jenkins Working On O.J. Simpson Documentary

(AllHipHop News) Last night (September 3), CNN broadcast Sacha Jenkins’ critically acclaimed Hip Hop documentary Fresh Dressed. The Queens filmmaker/writer has already begun putting together his next project, a look into a former professional football player that was accused of killing his ex-wife.

[ALSO READ: EXCLUSIVE: Director Sacha Jenkins Talks ‘Fresh Dressed’ Doc, Working With Nas & Hip Hop Fashion]

“I’m currently directing a doc about O.J. Simpson. That’s the main thing I’m in the middle of right now,” Jenkins reveals to AllHipHop.com. “Hopefully, Fresh Dressed will continue to create opportunities, not just for me, but other people like us.”

Simpson was a running back at the University of Southern California and in the NFL. The Heisman Trophy winner was later accused of murdering Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman in 1994. He was acquitted of both counts of murder a year later.

Jenkins has been working as a journalist for over two decades. He has contributed to Vibe, ego trip, Rolling Stone, and other publications. Jenkins currently serves as the creator director of Mass Appeal.

Fresh Dressed was Jenkins directorial debut. The documentary was produced in conjunction with CNN Films and Mass Appeal. Celebrated Hip Hop artist Nas serves as a producer as well.

“I interviewed him for the cover of the first issue of Ego Trip which was a magazine me and Elliott Wilson used to publish. So I’ve been interacting with Nas since at least 1994. Later in life, he became a partner in Mass Appeal where I’m a partner too,” says Jenkins. “As a producer, obviously his credibility goes a long way. His insights on and off screen and his relationships were extremely useful.”

Fresh Dressed can be rented or purchased at freshdressedmovie.com. Read Sacha Jenkins’ full AllHipHop.com interview here.

Billy Joel, A Matter of Trust: The Bridge to Russia – a Documentary Film

Jim Brown

Genre: Documentary

Price: $ 12.99

Rental Price: $ 3.99

Release Date: May 20, 2014


In July-August 1987, after 100 shows around the world on The Bridge Tour, Billy Joel accepted the Kremlin’s invitation to the U.S.S.R. for six fully-staged rock shows in Moscow and Leningrad, fulfilling a long-time desire to perform in Russia. During their stay, Billy and his family, along with musicians, staff, and a huge press entourage spent their days interacting with the Russian people, forging true bonds of friendship wherever they went. For the first time A Matter Of Trust – The Bridge To Russia: A Documentary presents an expanded version of what fans saw and heard over a quarter-century ago. The brand-new 90-minute film takes a fresh look at the groundbreaking trip, painstakingly incorporating some of the documentary material from 1988, both released and unreleased. But the heart and soul of this new film comprises up-to-date interviews with nearly 20 U.S. and Russian participants, including Billy, Christie Brinkley, band musicians, crew, and many others. There is a passion and intimacy to their interviews that underscores the historical significance of what these fellow travelers all witnessed, and the warmth that the Russian people showered on them. Billy has always considered that going to Russia was the most important thing he’d ever done as a performer. The freedom and excitement of his presence permanently affected the country and played a role in the ultimate dissolution of the U.S.S.R. in 1991. This new deluxe box set A Matter Of Trust – The Bridge To Russia also includes newly commissioned essays and previously unseen photography.

Controversial John Fleck Documentary Screens July 18 at Brand Library

2015-07-17-1437095537-4142888-10015010_10152304737575027_613484043635628837_n.jpg
This Saturday, July 18, Brand Library & Art Center in Glendale, California presents a free screening of the yet-to-be-released documentary John Fleck Is Who You Want Him To Be which delves into the work of controversial performance artist and award-winning actor John Fleck.

Fleck, a radical gay performance artist, gained notoriety as one of the NEA Four, a quartet of artists-Fleck, Karen Finley, Holly Hughes and Tim Miller-whose National Endowment for the Arts grants were vetoed by agency head John Frohnmayer in 1990 at the height of the AIDS crisis.

The NEA reversed funding to these artists who utilized body imagery and radical forms of expression to make art that confronted the government’s reluctance-fueled by fear and apathy-to deal with the AIDS crisis. Fleck and his compatriots fought back, and the face of public funding for the arts changed forever, with the Supreme Court ultimately upholding a vague “decency clause” on government arts funding that still limits our freedom of speech today. At that very different and extreme time, much concern was expressed about “the chilling effect” the decision could have on our culture.

Fleck has since gone on to win four LA Critics Circle Awards, eight DramaLogue, seven LA Weekly and two Backstage West awards, all for outstanding performance, and has appeared in numerous films and televisions shows, including most recently, True Blood.

Now the film, John Fleck Is Who You Want Him To Be, which intercuts archival video and current footage from a range of performances and an interview with Fleck, appears to be caught in a chilling effect of its own because of its content, not unlike his piece twenty-five years ago.. According to an email exchange between the film’s director, Kevin Duffy and Frameline San Francisco International LGBTQ Film Festival, the longest-running and largest queer film festival in the world requested a copy of the film for consideration.

As reported on Back2Stonewall, just days before the festival, Duffy learned the film would not be shown, even though Frameline claimed to “love it.” Further queries by Duffy led to him to learn that that the reason was the film’s “construction.” In an interview posted on Duffy’s Facebook page, Penelope Boyer, who worked for the National Association of Arts Organizations, a co-plaintiff in the NEA 4 Supreme Court case, says:

Construction is a veiled term for content, and content in this case refers to content that was controversial and that angered and frightened John Frohnmayer, the chairman of the NEA twenty-five years ago. It is this same content that is frightening a queer film festival now.

Despite Frameline’s rejection of John Fleck is Who You Want Him to Be, Duffy has screened the film at California State University, Long Beach and California Arts Institute, and on Saturday, July 18 will showing the film, with question and answer following, at the Brand Library & Art Center, in Glendale, CA. The screening marks start of a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for the film’s licensing and distribution. The reception at 6:30 pm will be followed by the 7:00 pm screening and discussion with the artists. Admission is free and open to the public (18 years of age and older, due the mature subject matter). Complimentary parking is available in Brand Park adjacent to the library and an accessible entrance and parking is available on the east side of the building.

A New Documentary Reveals the Brilliant, Contradictory Imagination of Nina Simone

nina simone documentary

Even if it is possible to be both frank and enigmatic, raw and refined, Nina Simone, who rose to prominence a half a century ago, spent most of her career trapped beyond the limits of her art. She did not take to imitation. Yet she sought to join with every sort of music she could find. Simone recorded jazz. She made funk. She sang Top 50 rock hits and rejuvenated folk. She was internationally lauded and resented as a performer of protest music. And she seemed to inhabit each of these genres as if it were her main vein of craft, the music that she’d been performing all her life. For an extraordinary decade, Simone was the resonant sound box of a nation in change. Then, abruptly and for several years, she vanished from the stage.

In What Happened, Miss Simone?, a smart new documentary by Liz Garbus available today on Netflix, the brilliant, sometimes contradicting layers of Simone’s myth get peeled back to reveal the even more brilliant, contradictory imagination at its core. The movie’s title, taken from an essay by Maya Angelou, gestures toward a question that continues to haunt especially the troubled, crazy years of Simone’s later career. If most Behind the Music-style movies trade in stories of creative martyrdom—underneath the genius is a vulnerable, broken person—Simone’s biography offers one twist more. Underneath the vulnerable, broken person, it turns out, there was a genius. Simone’s slow effort to get to that far shore of her creative mind is why her recordings are today still daring and direct.

Nina Simone was born Eunice Waymon in the mountainous west of North Carolina. She began playing the piano at four, to accompany revival meetings in the church where her mother was a preacher, yet her path from the black church tradition to the recording studio was more circuitous than that of many people in the segregated South. Weekends, she would cross the railroad tracks to the white part of town, to study classical piano with a teacher who had offered her free lessons. She loved it. “I studied to become the first black classical pianist in America, and that was all that was on my mind,” Simone later explained. Her teacher raised a small cache of money for her—it was known as the Eunice Waymon Fund—and, at seventeen, she left North Carolina, first for New York City, and then for Philadelphia, home to the Curtis Institute, perhaps the leading music conservatory in the country. Curtis rejected Eunice, which puzzled her, until she realized that it was due to the color of her skin. “I never really got over that jolt of racism,” she said.

Desperate because the Eunice Waymon Fund had run out, she found a job playing the piano at a bar in Atlantic City. She was told that if she hoped to keep it, she’d have to sing, too—something that she’d never done. Afraid that her mother would learn that she was performing “the devil’s music” (pop), she gave herself the performing name Nina Simone.

Yet audiences loved her. In the late fifties, Simone had begun to record some of the songs for which she’d become known in clubs, including “My Baby Just Cares for Me,” a forgotten show tune that, years later, had a second life in a Chanel ad, and “I Loves You, Porgy,” which first put her on the map. In 1960, Simone was booked into the young Newport Jazz Festival—her first big break—and began making screen appearances around the same time. Garbus’s documentary shows us Simone performing her early hit in the harem-like lounge of Playboy’s Penthouse, the short-lived Hugh Hefner television special. Simone gives the song’s lyrics particular weight, as she always did, though it isn’t hard under the circumstances (“Don’t let him take me / Don’t let him handle me / With his hot hands”). Hefner seems oblivious to the irony. By 1963, Simone achieved her first life goal, performing a landmark concert in Carnegie Hall. Still, the victory was bittersweet—she would have preferred, she wrote her mother, to be playing Bach.

The restiveness of Simone’s musical taste, the way that, in performance, she always seemed to reach for something harder, stranger, and truer, was unmistakable even to those who did not notice when she turned a blues piano solo into a cadenza of two-part counterpoint or played one song while singing another (a gesture of wild avant-gardism and two-track genius that amazed even Miles Davis). “Nina had a wonderful way of taking a piece of music and not interpreting it but metamorphizing it, morphing it into her experience,” Al Schackman, the jazz guitarist who was her lifelong friend and musical collaborator, says in the documentary. The most enduring of Simone’s music may be her performances of the jazz canon. In her hands, a standard like “Love Me or Leave Me” became definitive. There is surely no more perfect recording of “The Other Woman” than Simone’s eerie, introspective rendition; her performance of “I Put a Spell on You,” which rivals Screamin’ Jay Hawkins’s, and cuts to the wild heart of the song. And which is the better version of “Just in Time”—her light-heeled, anthemic Paris version or her edgy, ecstatic performance at the Village Gate? Most musicians are lucky if they can get inside a song enough to cut one perfect track, but Simone seems to have done nothing else, across a range of styles. In her hands, the clunky waltz of “Mr. Bojangles” became a heartbreaking ballad; her recording of “Here Comes the Sun” has more early-morning light in it that even the Beatles’s.

For a few years, Simone was able to enjoy the benefits of her musical range. She’d married Andrew Stroud, a vice-squad cop who quit the force to act as her manager. Stroud excelled at bringing in opportunities, and the couple bought a lovely house in Mount Vernon, New York, where they began to raise a daughter, Lisa. By the middle sixties, though, the marriage had begun to fall on strange, hard times. Simone, by her own account, came to resent Stroud for working her as hard as he did. He became physically abusive. (In one case, according to Simone’s letters and diaries, which are quoted through Garbus’s documentary, he raped her.) “I think they were both nuts,” says their daughter, who is also an executive producer of the film. “She stayed with him. That’s like playing with fire.”

By the late sixties, Simone had discovered politics—and carried it to a daring extreme. She was an early voice of the burgeoning civil rights movement, surrounding herself with a range of brilliant writers and thinkers. (In Mount Vernon, she lived next door to Malcolm X’s family.) As a young woman, Simone had largely avoided racial discussions; she’d been raised to think of race as an unfit subject and, anyway, she had aspired to join the world of white piano virtuosi. In the sixties, though, she increasingly began to celebrate her African-American heritage through song. In 1965, she released an incantatory recording of the spiritual “Sinnerman.” Many of Simone’s political songs, which she wrote herself, have become classics: Her 1964 hit “Mississippi Goddam” proved incendiary, even as it turned her into something of a movement hero. “She was kind of the patron saint of the rebellion,” the critic Stanley Crouch recalls.

As the assassinations of the decade intensified, and politics turned dark, Simone grew increasingly militant and single-minded. If she knew how to operate a gun, she said, she would be shooting people; since she didn’t, she sang, and what she sang alienated her from timid white audiences. As Simone’s performance repertoire became thick with protest music, she had trouble booking gigs. When she did perform, her behavior was erratic: She would shout at audience members, or walk out if she didn’t like what she saw. “People think that when she went onstage, that’s when she became Nina Simone,” her daughter says. “My mother was Nina Simone 24/7, and that’s where it became a problem.”

After suffering a kind of nervous breakdown, tempered only by deep bouts of depression, Simone simply disappeared: She left her husband and daughter, who had little idea where she had gone. In 1970, she landed in Barbados (a louche chapter not addressed in Garbus’s film) and then Liberia, to which she summoned her daughter, who lived with her a year before finding her unendurable and returning to the United States. Simone said that she loved Africa; it felt to her like a beautiful nation of her people. Yet she stopped playing music there, and soon ran out of money. She gave a comeback concert at the 1976 Montreux Jazz Festival—perhaps her finest, strangest performance ever—and then disappeared again. Some years later, her friends discovered her in Paris, living in a hovel, dressing in raggedy clothes, and playing in a small café for 300 dollars a night.

A small group, including Schackman, tried to get her on her feet again, beginning with a psychological evaluation; Simone, at last, was diagnosed as bipolar. In the Netherlands, where she was set up with a new apartment, Simone was put on a medication that helped her regain emotional equilibrium, even as it brought about a slow decay of her voice and her motor skills.

It’s tempting to regard this long late phase of Simone’s career, from the seventies until her death, in 2003, of breast cancer, as a sad coda to her glories of the sixties. But the truth is that the music that she made is some of the most revelatory of her career. Onstage at the Montreux Jazz Festival in 1976, Simone was meandering and a little nuts, a woman who had clearly come apart. Yet despite this internal chaos, or perhaps because of it, the show she gave seemed to break through to a new place in vocal music: one that transcended style and convention, that presented music not as entertainment but as public introspection. Her rendition of “Feelings,” the artifact of seventies schlock, is a master class in her approach, a lesson in the way that she could strip away the slick exterior of a song and rebuild it from the inside out.

Simone’s performance here, if “performance” is even the word, is so direct and candid, so supple in its flickers between self-disclosure and postmodern play, that it still seems brazen. At the time—an era caked in the artifice of glam rock and the ginned-up intimacy of the guitar ballad—it would have been the rawest thing on the airwaves, if it had ever made it there. Instead, it became something better: a standard to reach for. The stretching continues. Simone’s best work was the music of a future that, today, we’re still hoping will come.

A Fashion Elite Turns out for ‘The True Cost’: A Documentary About What We Wear

If the title of the compelling documentary, The True Cost, directed by Andrew Morgan, sounds a little mercantile, it is. Dealing with the dreadful reality behind “fast fashion,” the greed behind low cost clothes, the exploitation of a work force in underdeveloped countries, and the marketing of unnecessary, non-biodegradable, expendable tee-shirts and other splurge purchases to a population that does not need them, the documentary makes you want to avoid H&M, Forever 21 and Zara. (This last, in particular is in a much-publicized suit regarding racism and anti-Semitism, but I digress.) The film makes it hard to rationalize patronizing these retailers, knowing that the low prices passed along to consumers are the result of dire costs in human lives.

At the New York premiere this week at Lincoln Center’s Francesca Beale Theater, with an after party catered by Dean & Deluca, Georgina Chapman (without her husband Harvey Weinstein, one of the hosts), Regis and Joy Philbin, Anna Wintour, Christine Baranski, Anne Hathaway, Isabella Rosellini, Julia Garner, William Ivey Long and many others came to support Livia Firth, executive producer and champion of the film and its ideals in fair trade, fair wages, and care for our planet. Many in the room were entrenched in the fashion world, on the high end, and I wanted to know how the film’s concerns affected their world. Firth, the wife of Colin Firth by the way, gave the example of conscious consumerism, buying some expensive Stella McCartney trousers, so well made she’d be wearing them for a long time. So, on the high end, the weight of this problem is not heavy, particularly when production is responsive to workers’ needs and safety; consumers do not buy as much as is needed to stay competitive in the “fast fashion” business model, where the poor are at risk of deplorable work conditions and low wages to keep churning out goods that no one really needs, and actually makes no one happy. The film goes far to make this point: more stuff has never been a source of human contentment.

Ecology suffers too, and the film does not shy away from exploring the contamination of cotton crops in Texas, pointing at Monsanto, as other films do. Many film images are grim, such as footage of the collapse of a factory in Bangladesh, resulting in the deaths of over 1,000 people. I asked director Andrew Morgan, what was the most difficult scene to shoot. The workers strike in Cambodia and subsequent crack down by police, he said. The crew was always at the edge of safety.

News in Brief: Embarrassed Snake Can’t Believe Documentary Crew Caught It Whiffing While Lunging At Toad

LENOX, GA—Cringing at the thought of the embarrassing blunder being forever preserved on film, a local garter snake was reportedly humiliated Friday after a documentary crew caught footage of it completely whiffing while lunging at a toad. “Dammit, I almost never miss, but of course as soon as the cameras are rolling I totally botch it,” said the snake, bemoaning the fact that its rare misfire would now likely be seen by millions of people worldwide and possibly played multiple times in slow motion. “I bet when that thing airs they won’t even bother to mention the hundreds of other toads I’ve snagged throughout my lifetime. The other day, I plucked a mouse right off a log. Where were those cameras then?” At press time, the predatory reptile reportedly expressed additional frustration when the documentary crew managed to record it striking out big time with a female …

16 Shocking Allegations In Scientology Documentary ‘Going Clear’

The Church of Scientology has long been a controversial institution among both the religious community and entertainment business. But the latest documentary from Oscar-winning director Alex Gibney, “Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief,” explores the secrets of the organization through interviews with former high-ranking officials and former members in a way never seen before.

Based on the 2013 book of the same name by Lawrence Wright, “Going Clear” not only exposes details about Scientology but also serves as an in-depth explainer for those unfamiliar with the group. The Church has spoken out against the film (read their full statement here) as have its celebrity members. But whether you’ve studied Scientology closely or merely know it as “the religion with Tom Cruise,” watching “Going Clear” is a powerful, stunning and emotionally overwhelming experience that will likely leave you with your mouth agape. Here are the most shocking allegations put forth in “Going Clear,” which made its HBO debut on Sunday night:

1. L. Ron Hubbard’s Scientology creation story
When Scientologists reach level OT III, they are shown the “secret materials,” as director and former member Paul Haggis described them: Hubbard’s hand-written account of the creation myth. According to this, 75 million years ago a galactic dictator named Xenu froze people and dropped their bodies into volcanoes. From there, the disembodied spirits, or thetans, apparently jumped into newborns bodies. According to Hubbard, these multiple thetans crowded in our bodies are the source of our anxieties and fears.

2. Hubbard spent time in a black magic cult
Before founding Scientology, Hubbard befriended rocket and chemical engineer Jack Parsons who was a part of black magic cult Ordo Templi Orientis (OTO), which followed the teachings of Aleister Crowley. According to “Going Clear,” Hubbard became Parsons scribe and assistant on a magical operation to impregnate a goddess-like woman to create the anti-Christ.

3. Members were allegedly thrown overboard as punishment
Hubbard created Ethics, or punishments for his auditors who made mistakes during sessions. They were then pushed overboard on his ships into the water, which was “30 feet, 35 feet” below, according to Hana Whitfield, one of the original Sea Org members.

4. Hubbard told his second wife he murdered their daughter
When Sara Northup, Hubbard’s second wife, threatened to leave him unless he got psychiatric help, he reportedly kidnapped their daughter Alexis. According to written accounts from Northup, Hubbard told her he “cut [Alexis] into little pieces” and dropped her in a river. Then he would call back and tell Sara that their daughter was alive.

5. There was a Scientology “prison camp”
Former Church member Sylvia “Spanky” Taylor, who was once the liaison between the Church and John Travolta, was sent to the Rehabilitation Project Force (RPF), or what she described as the “prison camp where you’d go for re-indoctrination.” According to the film, when sent to the RPF, people would have to do hard labor for “30 hours on, 3 hours off,” eat table scraps and sleep on dirty, wet mattresses.

6. The FBI raid on the Church was the biggest in history at the time
On July 8, 1977, the FBI raided Scientology’s Los Angeles, Hollywood and Washington, D.C. locations, which at the time was the bureau’s biggest raid ever.

7. The Church stole government documents
According to the film, in the ’70s, many Scientologists were directed to get jobs in Department of Justice and IRS offices in order to steal documents against or relating to the Church.

8. The Church apparently has a blackmail folder on John Travolta
According to Wright in the film, when there were rumors of Travolta wanting to leave Scientology, the Church created a “black PR package” that has “all the damaging material” from his private auditing sessions. Travolta also reportedly refused to have his sessions video taped, but secret cameras were hidden anyway.

9. The Church investigated the IRS
One of the Church’s goals was to be recognized by the IRS as a fully tax-exempt religion, according to former senior executive of the Church Mark “Marty” Rathbun. Thousands of Scientologists reportedly filed 2,400 total lawsuits against IRS employees, and private investigators were sent to IRS conventions to obtain information. According to journalist Tony Ortega, Scientology leader David Miscavige told the IRS commissioner that the lawsuits would go away if the Church was given tax-exempt status. The Church was granted exemption in October 1993.

10. Tom Cruise and the Church allegedly wire-tapped Nicole Kidman’s phone
According to the film, the Church noticed Tom Cruise slipping away from Scientology during his marriage to Nicole Kidman. Cruise reportedly said he wanted to have Kidman’s phone wiretapped, which the Church did at his request.

11. Cruise may have had employees pimp his cars for 40 cents an hour
Sea Org members make 40 cents an hour, according to Ortega, who says, “I don’t think there’s any way Tom Cruise is not aware of that.” According to the film, they have “tricked out his cars and motorcycles” and hanger in Santa Monica, California, and installed the audiovisual equipment at his home.

12. The Church supposedly found Cruise a new girlfriend
According to Wright, Cruise was “overheard to complain that he needed a new girlfriend” when he was in Spain at the opening of a new Scientology center. The Church then found a young Scientologist, Nazanin Boniadi, and reportedly had her braces removed, bought her $ 20,000 of clothes and colored her hair “to Cruise’s liking.” She was then told she would be Cruise’ girlfriend, but the relationship soon ended. Boniadi apparently signed a non-disclosure agreement with the Church and has since become a well-known actress in “Homeland,” “Iron Man,” among other films and shows.

13. Paul Haggis left because of the the Church’s homophobic stance
Oscar-winning filmmaker Paul Haggis (“Crash,” “Casino Royale”) left Scientology in 2009 after 30 years when his two gay daughters told him how they were being treated and harassed by the Church. According to Church doctrines, the religion views homosexuality as a disease. Haggis then wrote a now-famous letter of his resignation from the Church.

14. Scientology’s book value is about $ 1.5 billion
Ortega obtained recent tax records that revealed the main three tiers of the Church (which is a non-profit organization) have a combined book value of $ 1.5 billion.

15. Sea Org members were allegedly tortured to the sounds of Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody”
In 2004, Miscaviage apparently ordered the top members of the Sea Org to live in what was known as The Hole in the Chuch’s secret Gold Base in California. In the film, former members say they were told to confess their crimes against the Church in order to leave The Hole. Beyond beatings and one man being ordered to “mop up the bathroom floor with his tongue,” another method of abuse was when members were forced to play musical chairs to “Bohemian Rhapsody.” Those participating were “fighting to stay” in the Church: whoever didn’t have a seat when the music stopped was expelled from the Church.

16. If members leave the Church their friends & family are forced to “disconnect”
The biggest reason to not leave the Church for many Scientologists is fear of “disconnection.” This is when all friends and family members still with the Church are told to cut ties with those who leave, or those deemed Potential Trouble Sources (PTS), or Suppressive Persons (SPs). Many former members included in the film haven’t seen or spoken to their family or friends since they left.

“Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief” airs again on Monday, March 30 at 9:00 p.m. ET on HBO.

Lambert & Stamp Official Trailer 1 (2015) – Documentary HD

Aspiring filmmakers Chris Stamp and Kit Lambert set out to find a subject for their underground movie, one that will reflect the way it feels to be young and dissatisfied in postwar London. This unlikely partnership of two men from vastly different backgrounds was inspired by the burgeoning youth culture of the early 1960s. Lambert and Stamp searched for months and finally found in a band called the High Numbers a rebellious restlessness that was just what they were looking for. Abandoning their plans to make a film, they instead decided to mentor and manage this group, which evolved into the iconic band known as the Who. The result was rock ‘n’ roll history.

Meet the Warholas: Andy Warhol’s Family Set to Claim Their 15 Minutes With New Documentary

A few years ago, in one of life’s truly happy accidents, I was introduced to a descendant of one of the world’s great artists at an opening in Washington, D.C. The next thing I knew I was in Europe sitting around a conference table with other members of the family who shared the famous name. It was an extraordinary visit, and one of the most interesting days of my life.

As someone who writes about art (or tries to, at least), I was transfixed listening to these very normal people talk about their very abnormal ancestry and its effect on their family members. I got to thinking about how very important these people are, how wonderful it is that they are among us, and how much they can teach us.

My new friends gently rebuffed my requests to go public with this extraordinary experience and though I haven’t given up on wanting to help them tell their story, I don’t think it’s going to happen. For they know the price of being “out there” — from misconceptions about family fortune to surrender of privacy and the ability to forge their own way — and they just aren’t up for it. And while it’s a shame, I can’t say that I blame them. At all.

Last week when I read that a relative of the late Andy Warhol was venturing to make Uncle Andy, a documentary about him “from the family’s perspective,” my imagination — and because this is something I’ve spent a lot of time time thinking about, my heart — was immediately captured.

2015-03-16-1426520779-3498487-James_warhola_UncleAndyArchie_logo.jpg

So I reached out, of course, and found myself in a fantastic conversation with one Abby Warhola: 30-year-old granddaughter of Paul, oldest of the three Warhola brothers who passed away in January 2014. Abby lives in Pittsburgh, where most of the Warhola clan can still be found, with her partner Jesse and their 7-year-old daughter, Veva. And this is what she had to say about her project and her family:

CJ: Hi Abby! Where are you now and what are you doing?

AW: Hello! I’m at my grandmother’s house, Anne Warhola, Andy’s sister in law, who will be 91 this May. I stay with her three nights a week to help out. She is one of my favorites and I love interviewing her. She pulls no punches when talking about Uncle Andy and jokingly refers to him as being a pain in the ass…

CJ: You sure she’s joking?

AW: (laughs) I guess it depends on her mood. They had a typical brother-sister relationship.

2015-03-16-1426520820-2970333-AnneandPaulWarholaAbbyWarhola.jpg

Anne Warhola with her late husband Paul.

CJ: What’s it like being a Warhola, anyway? When did you first become aware of your interesting Uncle Andy?

AW: Well there’s never a dull or quiet moment when one of us are in the room! We are a very close-knit family who laughs a lot. I think as a whole we are a really eccentric and creative bunch. I don’t know if I was ever unaware, but once the Andy Warhol Museum opened in Pittsburgh, my life really changed. I had the chance to meet some of his famous friends, including Dennis Hopper, Lou Reed and Pee Wee Herman. It was pretty exciting.

CJ: The news of your film project has really caught fire in the last few days. Are you surprised by the reaction?

AW: For us, it has been a very surreal experience. It really confirms just how popular Andy has become. Within a week, the story was all over the world. I guess nothing is surprising when you’re talking about people being interested in Andy Warhol!

CJ: What do you do in real life? Is this your first film project?

AW: I do a little bit of everything. Primarily, I’m a photographer, but I’m also a designer and a letterpress printer. While I do shoot video, 16mm and super-8 film on various smaller projects, this is my first feature-length film.

CJ: So you are the one getting the attention at the moment, but this is actually a collaboration between you and your partner, Jesse, right? Tell us a little about him.

AW: Yes, Jesse and I are working on this together. He is a visual artist with a background in film. Jesse was really the one to push the idea of turning my family’s story into a documentary. I’m a little too close to it all, and honestly never thought it was something to pursue. It wasn’t until we started capturing these interviews that I realized how interesting my family really is.

Jesse, Abby & Veva

CJ: What made you and Jesse decide that now was the time? What does the broader Warhola family think of it?

AW: We’ve been filming for several years, but it wasn’t until my grandfather passed away in 2014 that we decided to push the project into a feature-length film. When his footage became finite, we felt the urgency to preserve it and create something bigger to honor both my grandfather and Uncle Andy’s legacies. My family is very supportive of the project. They are excited that someone within the family can finally share their unique story.

CJ: Is the museum or the foundation involved in any way?

AW: The Andy Warhol Museum has been very supportive! We have done some interviews and hope to work with them further. Since they are non-profit, they are unable to provide any financial support to commercial projects. The foundation has never had a relationship with the Paul Warhola family. Andy’s other brother, John Warhola, was involved with the foundation and Paul was not included in that relationship. Still, it is our understanding that the foundation was created to provide grants for contemporary artists, and since this film is about Warhol, it doesn’t fall within their guidelines of support anyway.

CJ: Tell me a bit about John and Paul. What did they think of their brother’s fame?

AW: Well, I can only speak for my grandfather, Paul. I didn’t really have a relationship with Uncle John. My grandfather might have been the proudest big brother in history. He absolutely loved telling Andy stories and actually saved every newspaper and magazine clipping that he saw.

2015-03-16-1426521087-1601900-AnneWarhola_1943PaulAndy.jpg

Paul & Andy

CJ: My impression has always been that there was a real distance between Andy and his family. Is this correct?

AW: It was never that Andy was distant to his family, he just kept his two worlds very far apart. The family visited him in N.Y.C. about once a month for nearly three decades. Whenever the family would visit, he was very strict about them not visiting the Factory, or letting them see his more adult “colorful” films. He was protective of them and enjoyed their presence in the privacy of his home.

Warhola clan, circa 1945, Pittsburgh

CJ: What’s the family’s general take nowadays on things like Silver Car Crash recently selling for over $ 100 million?

AW: I don’t think the incredible numbers his paintings go for now fully compute with us. The family is very proud of what Uncle Andy has achieved, but at this point his global stardom has stretched beyond anything we could have ever imagined. It’s wild to think that just one of those paintings could have changed my entire family’s life for good…

CJ: You’ve launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund the film. Talk about that and why the decision to crowdfund?

AW: There’s a few things that appealed to us about Kickstarter. Raising funds this way empowers us to be completely independent and tell the story the way we know it. Another great aspect is the exposure you get from launching a campaign. We can say that the coverage on the project has truly blown us away. If anything, Kickstarter is a wonderful platform for getting the word out and discovering the people who are willing to support the project.

CJ: There is quite a bit out there at this point about Andy and his legacy — books, films, what have you — do you have any particular favorites?

AW: I actually haven’t read any books about him. I like to look at his picture books though. For instance I think Shoes, Shoes, Shoes is really just great. I loved Basquiat. David Bowie was my favorite Andy ever.

CJ: That movie was really great, wasn’t it? Some say that they never saw Andy happier than when Basquiat was in his life. And, yes, Bowie nailed it! And you should read Holy Terror by Bob Colacello. I’ll send you a copy!

AW: It really was a great! And please do send me a copy! I’ve heard from my uncle that it is a really great read.

2015-03-16-1426521433-1931638-WB.jpg

Andy & Jean-Michel Basquiat

CJ: Speaking of Colacello, are you working with anyone from the Factory days on the film or is it strictly a family affair?

AW: So far, Billy Name and Gerard Malanga have graciously contributed their photography, most of which is from the Factory days. Great iconic Andy images. We intended to speak with them and others who were close enough to Andy to know how he lived outside of the limelight and factory scene. However, we feel that it will be the family’s stories that will reveal a layer to Warhol that has not yet been shared.

CJ: What is there to tell about Andy that hasn’t been told? What kinds of things can we look forward to learning and whom will we see in the film?

AW: Well it’s no secret that Andy was very guarded and trusted few people, and rightfully so, considering the many nefarious characters who were looking to gain something from him. The family was this small circle of people that Andy could trust and rely on for support. When he was shot in 1968, his eldest nephew Paulie took care of him during that time and recalls the way that experience profoundly changed Andy. It is within these stories that you begin to understand what made Warhol such a complicated and fascinating person. Without giving away too much about the film, we can say that the family’s memories touch on everything, from the good, the bad and even a bit of the ugly.

Uncle Andy: The Andy Warhol Family Film from Warhola Films on Vimeo.

CJ: So when is the Kickstarter deadline and do you feel like you are on track to raise what you need?

AW: The deadline is April 2nd at 6 p.m. eastern time. We currently have over $ 35k which is an encouraging start, but there still a long road ahead to achieve our goal of $ 175K.

CJ: I’ve noticed there are some wonderful and probably highly collectable rewards that come with different sponsorship levels as well. Discuss.

AW: Yes! This is the first time that the public has an opportunity to purchase Warhola family art! Much of the Warhola family shares this rare artistic talent. We are offering original silkscreens by Paul Warhola, and his works have been featured in galleries around the world. Since his passing there is only a limited number of these available. My Uncle James, who is known for Garbage Pail Kids, Mad Magazine, numerous Sci-Fi covers and illustrated children’s books, has offered signed copies of his books and even an original watercolor painting. My mother Madalen has contributed her beautiful Pysanky Ostrich Eggs, which she creates in the honor of the Warhola family tradition. My family is very proud of their Rusyn heritage and these eggs are truly one of the highlights.

CJ: Fantastic. Thank you for your time, Abby. This sounds like a very special project and I really wish you and Jesse the best with it. Keep us posted, ok?

AW: Absolutely. Thank you so much! We really appreciate you taking the time to hear about our project!

Iris Official Trailer 1 (2015) – Iris Apfel Documentary HD

IRIS pairs legendary 87-year-old documentarian Albert Maysles with Iris Apfel, the quick-witted, flamboyantly dressed 93-year-old style maven who has had an outsized presence on the New York fashion scene for decades. More than a fashion film, the documentary is a story about creativity and how, even in Iris’ dotage, a soaring free spirit continues to inspire. IRIS portrays a singular woman whose enthusiasm for fashion, art and people are life’s sustenance and reminds us that dressing, and indeed life, is nothing but an experiment. Despite the abundance of glamour in her current life, she continues to embrace the values and work ethic established during a middle-class Queens upbringing during the Great Depression. “I feel lucky to be working. If you’re lucky enough to do something you love, everything else follows.”

Champs Movie CLIP – Growing Up (2015) – Documentary HD

Boxing, “the poor man’s sport,” has long given kids from America’s roughest neighborhoods an opportunity to escape violence with violence. But with success in the ring comes new fights for which there is no training: champions are made and broken in the blink of an eye, and young men thrust into the spotlight are often ill-equipped for the fame and fortune that accompany a title belt. Built around the stories of heavyweight legends Mike Tyson, Evander Holyfield and Bernard Hopkins, CHAMPS balances these uncensored recollections with gorgeous reenactments, classic fight footage, and candid interviews with Mark Wahlberg, Denzel Washington, Ron Howard, Spike Lee, Mary J. Blige and 50 Cent. More than just a sports documentary, CHAMPS examines what it means to pursue the American Dream through boxing, painting a picture of a controversial and unregulated sport in a moment of crisis.

India Bans Documentary Featuring Interview With Delhi Gang Rape Convict

(Adds comments from India’s home minister)

By Aditya Kalra

NEW DELHI, March 4 (Reuters) – A documentary film about the fatal gang rape of a woman in New Delhi in 2012 has been banned in India over government concerns about derogatory comments made by one of the rapists and the violation of guidelines set for filmmakers.

Leslee Udwin’s “India’s Daughter” features conversations with Mukesh Singh and fellow convicts who raped and tortured a 23-year-old woman on a moving bus in December 2012, sparking nationwide protests and forcing India to toughen anti-rape laws.

India’s Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Wednesday said the documentary would not be aired in India and accused its makers of violating “permission conditions” by not showing the complete unedited footage to jail officials.

“It was noticed the documentary film depicts the comments of the convict which are highly derogatory and are an affront to the dignity of women,” Singh told lawmakers in parliament.

“How was permission given to interview a rapist? It is shocking. I will get this investigated.”

Comments released to the media this week showed that in the film, Mukesh blames the victim for the crime and resisting rape. He also says women are more responsible than men for rapes.

Late on Tuesday, the home minister directed Delhi police to obtain a court order prohibiting the film’s release. Police said the ban was imposed as Mukesh’s comments could create an atmosphere of “fear and tension” that may fuel public anger.

Mukesh’s comments in “India’s Daughter” have grabbed headlines in Indian newspapers and sparked outrage on social media. On Wednesday, it was debated in parliament.

The film had been scheduled to premiere in India and several countries on March 8 on International Women’s Day. Udwin told Reuters she was “deeply saddened” by the ban in India, but the film would be released worldwide as planned.

The British filmmaker told reporters on Tuesday she had the necessary approvals and had given jail officials a chance to sit through hours of unedited footage, but they did not do so. Officials later approved a pared-down version, she said.

Street protests in the wake of the December 2012 gang rape inspired Udwin to make the hour-long documentary.

Four men including Mukesh were sentenced to death for the crime, but their execution was later stayed on appeal by India’s Supreme Court. One of the defendants hanged himself in prison, while another, who was under 18 at the time, got three years in juvenile detention. (Editing by Tony Tharakan and Jeremy Laurence)

SOMM: Into the Bottle Official Trailer 1 (2015) – Wine Documentary HD

SOMM: INTO THE BOTTLE is the follow up to writer/director Jason Wise’s 2013 cult-hit SOMM.

SOMM: INTO THE BOTTLE raises the curtain into the seldom seen world that surrounds the wine we drink. How many people understand how wine is produced? How it is grown? What goes on in the cellar? From those questions to how many hands touch a bottle, to why wine costs what it costs, to how certain wines end up on a wine list, this is a never before seen look into the world of wine.

By opening some of the world’s most rare bottles of wine, the viewer will understand how a wine ages, what happens in a cellar and exactly what oak in wine means. The film takes a look at how history has impacted wine, from the Romans, to Prohibition, to the World Wars and even current events such as the Napa Earthquake.

Through the eyes of the world’s greatest Somms and Winemakers, we discover that far more than just grapes go into the bottle.

Coming in 2015!

Giuseppe Makes a Movie Official Trailer 1 – Giuseppe Andrews Documentary HD

In Ventura, CA, Giuseppe Andrews makes movies in his trailer park where he grew up. A former child actor in some big movies (Independence Day, Unstrung Heroes, Never Been Kissed), Giuseppe is inspired more by the crazy independent filmmakers of history: Bunuel, Cassavetes and Fassbinder. Obsessed with the edges of society, dirty language spoken as poems and occasional nudity, Giuseppe’s films may resemble the underground worlds of Harmony Korine, John Waters and Tod Browning. With a handwritten script, a video camera, an acting ensemble of neighbors and homeless friends – and almost no money, Giuseppe has now made 30 feature films. In Giuseppe’s new film “Garbanzo Gas”, Vietnam Ron, one of many homeless men in Ventura that Giuseppe has grown up with, plays a vegan cow on vacation from the slaughterhouse. The doc GIUSEPPE MAKES A MOVIE follows the making of “Garbanzo Gas.” From Giuseppe’s headquarters – his own mobile home – we follow as he sets out to make a feature film in just two days. The stranger-than-fiction documentary explores the Giuseppe universe, showing how the self-taught filmmaker captures an unexpected level of humanism and creates a family unit for a group of people who needed one.

Synopsis: In a recurring poetic image, 17-year-old Regina Diane Nicholson swings between heaven and earth on a breathtakingly high cliff by the sea. Reggie is a tomboy struggling with a terminal illness, her parents and her dream of making a film. She impresses us with her loving, strong personality and wisdom beyond her years, as well as her morbid sense of humor. When director Henry Corra met 17-year-old filmmaker Regina Nicholson at a film festival nearly three years ago, he agreed to help her make a feature film. What developed over nearly two years is a powerful friendship and poignant relationship between Reggie and Henry. He became her collaborator, friend and defender in her fight to find artistic and personal freedom. When Reggie turns 18 and can make decisions on her own, things become even more intense. This film is a poetic fairytale about love and death, holding on and letting go – one that invites us to discuss the relationship between filmmaker, subject and family. An eclectic mix of images with the intimacy of a video diary or home movie, it is filmed both by Henry and by Reggie and supplemented by their text message exchanges, images from her favorite movies, and fairytale-like scenes with songs that together form a heartwarming, but also heartbreaking and controversial ode to Reggie’s life.

Producer: Jeremy Amar

Director: Henry Corra, Regina Nicholson

Writer: Henry Corra, Regina Nicholson, Kimberly Hassett

Michael Sam Discusses Coming Out In Documentary

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Michael Sam dismissed the thought that his sexuality has cost him a spot in the NFL.

“I don’t like to think that way,” Sam said in an Oprah Winfrey Network documentary that aired Saturday night. “But I do believe I’m a very talented football player and I’m going to continue working hard and try to get that opportunity to play in the league.” The first openly gay player drafted in the NFL has no regrets.

“I did everything I was supposed to do. I did everything right,” Sam said. “I am proud of how I handled things.”

Sam said coming out was the right thing to do. He would have preferred the news come out after he informed the team that drafted him, but he feared it would be revealed and felt pressure to control the situation.

“It didn’t need to be public,” Sam said. “Why do gay people have to do it?”

The production was billed as the player’s first TV appearance since being cut by the Dallas Cowboys in mid-October and played like a personal “Hard Knocks.” The 90-minute program was followed by a one-on-one with Winfrey, who asked Sam whether he believed sexual orientation is hurting his chances, and how long he’d keep trying.

“As long as I can,” Sam replied.

The documentary details countless anxious hours during the NFL draft, which Sam called “the longest three days of my life.” The New York Jets telephoned his agents to say they weren’t interested, and the Cowboys texted to say they were out, too.

Sam, who rose to stardom after a difficult childhood in tiny Hitchcock, Texas, asked that the sound on the TV be turned down at one point before the St. Louis Rams took him late in the seventh round.

“Am I going undrafted?” a frustrated Sam asked agent Cameron Weiss. “This phone still has not beeped.”

Sam said the reassuring hand of his boyfriend, Vito Cammisano, on his shoulder during the wait to get picked affirmed the decision last February to reveal his sexual orientation to the nation. He informed Missouri coaches and players before his senior season and was the team MVP and SEC co-defensive player of the year.

“In that moment, I was like ‘I don’t care what happens. I made the right choice to come out,'” Sam said.

Sam broke down in sobs when Rams coach Jeff Fisher telephoned just before the team made him the 249th pick of the 256-pick draft. He had been projected to be chosen as early as the fourth round.

Sam kissed and hugged Cammisano and then the two smashed cake in each other’s faces as a national television audience looked on.

“Some say the kiss, the cake, it was all just too much,” Winfrey said in the voiceover prom for the program. “Some say he wasn’t good enough. Others say he should have never come out, one saying during the introduction to the program that he would be the mother of all distractions.”

Sam called it the “infamous kiss.” He said it was spontaneous and added he’d thought the cameras had been turned off.

“Everyone made a big deal out of it,” Sam said. “It’s just a kiss. Did you forget that I was gay? Should I be kissing a woman instead?”

Sam was among 21 players waived by the team to reach the 53-player limit before the season opener.

Echoing his remarks after making the pick, coach Jeff Fisher said several times it was purely a football decision. The Rams were well-stocked with pass rushers, and undrafted Ethan Westbrooks grabbed the final defensive end spot.

“I will tell you this: I was pulling for Mike,” Fisher said then. “I really was, and I don’t say that very often. Mike came in here and did everything we asked him to do.”

On Twitter, roughly an hour after he was cut, Sam thanked the Rams and the city of St. Louis. He also wrote “The most worthwhile things in life rarely come easy, this is a lesson I’ve always known. The journey continues.”

Sam spent seven weeks on the Cowboys’ practice squad before being released and is currently a free agent.

Pop Star ‘Fangirls’ Get The David Attenborough-Style Documentary They Deserve

As the holder of 31 honorary degrees and an integral part of esteemed documentaries like “Planet Earth,” Sir David Attenborough is literally a British National Treasure.

So when the famed naturalist deems a particular natural phenomenon one of “nature’s greatest experiments,” you know he means it. Now, thanks to some clever editing, the next “extraordinary” occurrence that has so enraptured Attenborough is none other than Fangirls. You know, the kind that run screaming for Justin Bieber’s tour bus.

By splicing together clips from Attenborough’s various nature documentaries, a brilliant YouTuber has crafted just such a mockumentary. Episode 1 of “Fangirl Planet,” which debuted Monday, uses Attenborough’s voice to explain the fangirl social structure of “super herds” and weighs the pros and cons of traveling in such large packs.

An Interview with Andrei Sannikov on the HBO Documentary, Dangerous Acts Starring the Unstable Elements of Belarus

The tensions between Ukraine and Russia make the news daily, but in Belarus, a regime has been in place for 20 years, imprisoning opposition, or eliminating it altogether. Andrei Sannikov, now in exile in Warsaw, Poland, attempted to run against President Alexander Lukashenko. After participating in a protest, he was imprisoned and tortured. On June 24, in Warsaw’s Museum of the History of the Polish Jews, I had the opportunity to talk to Andrei Sannikov about his exile in Poland and the documentary film about the suppression of free speech in his home country, Dangerous Acts Starring the Unstable Elements of Belarus, directed by Madeleine Sackler, to air on HBO.

What are you doing here in Warsaw?

I am in exile now, at first I was in the UK, but now I am here to stay closer to Belarus. My friends are here. My team is here. Some key people had to flee the country. Some people were lucky to escape before they were arrested. One of the journalists, an editor in chief of one of the most popular websites, Charter 97, was under house arrest but she escaped. I never thought I would ever think about leaving my country. We are not in control of our lives anymore.

The government knows you are here. Do they demand your return?

Formally, I am not under any legal obligations. Formally, I was released. I did not escape from prison. Of course they follow what I am doing. They might think at some moment they could demand some proceedings against me. So far no. Belarus is my subject, since I am a trained diplomat I am used to using my contacts to explain my situation. I am writing, working on a book now. It will be published in Belarus. In prison I wrote fairy tales for my son, and I did not think that even fairy tales would be published in Belarus.

What made you agree to participate in Madeleine Sackler’s film?

I did not agree. I was not asked. She came to my sister in London, near where I was living, for an interview. I have to promote the case for free speech, for freedom in general in Belarus. You should ask me, what made me do a Skype interview at 2:30 in the morning, for the D.C. premier. But I negotiated because they wanted me to speak after the movie, at 4 AM. We agreed on an intro.

So, what did you say to introduce the film?

There is no freedom in Belarus, but there are freedom fighters, and you see them in the movie, people in the streets of Minsk demanding freedom. There is no doubt that the origins of the Kremlin regime are the same. Now we see the situation in the Ukraine where there is suffering because of the war the Kremlin unleashed there. And the world needs to help them defend their freedom. There will be no freedom until such regimes are put down, even for the Ukraine. The goal is obvious. We have to do everything to free Ukraine, Belarus, Russia, and it is doable, because even though in Belarus there is a ruthless dictator, it is possible. At the end I said that I hope if we will be serious in our efforts, and if we succeed, then Madeleine will make another movie called “Coming Home,” meaning Belarus coming to Europe. This is the issue because Russia wants to take us to Eurasia.

A provocation: Isn’t political theater propaganda, antithetical to art?

I know what propaganda theater is. The regime took authors approved by the Communists like Mayakovsky or others who are not dissidents and show their fight for creativity and freedom. I don’t have this division. Theater is theater, if talent is shown, even if it promotes things I cannot agree with. The Belarus Free Theater did not start with political theater, and even then, they could not do it officially. Dictators do not trust independent artists, so every independent artist is a potential threat. All artists have to be approved by the regime: therefore, there is a union of writers, a union of artists, a union of musicians, composers, and only those members are permitted to function. So from the beginning they did not allow Belarus Free Theater to do anything legally, so they started underground theater.

The question is strange. Would you consider Havel a propaganda playwright? He was writing about politics, life under a totalitarian system. Propaganda has a negative connotation but it actually promotes some values. I am all for it. I went to the Belarus Free Theater performances in Minsk, in a small space, maybe 30-40 people. But I saw the reactions of the people, the emotions. That was very important to me, especially in our situation which is quite gloomy. When people come to see something that is very alive and can make you think and get you to react emotionally it is very important.

In Belarus in the mid-1990’s, with the breakup of the Soviet Union, there was so much promise for freedom. What happened?

I too was encouraged in the mid 90’s: the general trend was quite incredible, and then we overlooked the dangers of a dictatorship. We have a man in power for 20 years. He was not taken seriously, but he started to build his dictatorship very early. He started to kill his opponents. The regime killed all the opponents who were more popular than Lukashenko.

What do you hope the film, Dangerous Acts Starring the Unstable Elements of Belarus will accomplish?

To let the world know. This is the 21st century, the time of the Internet. To realize there is a dictatorship that does not allow you to live in your country! I was born in Minsk. At my age, I don’t like to be in a foreign country no matter how nice it is. I love Poland, the UK, America but I want to live in Minsk.

I know that everything is possible. I was in the foreign ministry in the mid ’90’s, doing a lot in the state. We had friends. Now we have enemies. Unfortunately, we have to continue to do what Solidarity in Poland did, what the Velvet Revolution in Czechoslovakia did. But I now realize, without help from the democratic world, it will not be possible to achieve the same results. Will we have maidans in Belarus?, I am often asked. That is the square in Ukraine where demonstrations took place. We had huge protests for several years, ignored by the world. Unlike Ukraine, the world did not get involved.

You said you are traveling tomorrow. Where to?

I am going to the 3rd biggest theater festival, in the Czech Republic. They will perform the play based on the fairy tale I wrote in prison for my son, called “Flying Through the Rainbow,” about a little mouse who dreams of flying through the rainbow and all his friends help to realize this dream. My son was 3 ½ when I started writing. Seven now, he is going to see it for the first time, but he knows the contents.

‘Farmland’ Should Win Awards as Best Documentary

It comes as a complete shock to me that the best movie I have seen this year is a documentary by the name of Farmland. I usually don’t watch documentaries and those I do watch have mostly bored me. I am a man who likes to see actors playing roles and movies being a great escape.

For these reasons I was not eager to watch Farmland after I had been invited to a special screening of the film. But I had said I would be there so I made myself go. After only a few minutes of the film had been shown I knew I was in for a cinematic treat.

Director James Moll went across the country finding young farmers/ranchers to interview and showcase for his film. He selected (1) Leighton Cooley, a poultry farmer in Georgia; (2) Brad Bellah, a cattle rancher in Colorado; (3) David Loberg, a corn and soybean farmer in Nebraska; (4) Sutton Morgan, an organic farmer in California; (5) Margaret Schlass, a vegetable farmer in Pennsylvania; and (6) Ryan Veldhuizen, a hog farmer in Minnesota.

Each of these individuals get equal screen time to tell their story. They speak with a naturalness that is unexpected. Each story appears to be heartfelt and impressive. How Moll found people so at ease in front of the camera is truly amazing.

The film intercuts between the selected cast and lets their stories play out over the course of the film. There are parts that are humorous, some that are sorrowful, some that are dramatic, and some that are pure patriotic Americana. All of it is impressive. The audience gets to know these people and share their joys, hopes and pains.

Being a farmer or a rancher looks to be hard work but to the person, these six individuals make it look like the greatest profession on earth. They have a sense of mission in what they are doing and they convey this sense to the camera and thus to the audience.

Moll not only presents a great story, or in this case stories, he also dresses the entire production up with a rousing musical score by Nathan Wang and magnificent photography by Harris Done. It is a presentation that is outstanding in very facet of its creation.

Farmland is not rated but it would certainly be a “G” as there is nothing controversial in the film.

There is an unexpected emotional punch in the stories of these young American men and women. Their sincerity and open honesty about their careers seep into your heart and brain while they talk. And after you have watched their stories you have a renewed optimism in the future of our country.

The film is playing in selected theaters around the country. If it is not playing at a theater near you, ask for it. It is something your entire family will enjoy.

I scored Farmland a growing 8 out of 10.

Filmmaker Shares Insight On Documentary

2014-05-07-ChiemiElaineStritch_web.jpg
If one looks hard enough past the big movie multiplexes, you can still find small art houses and festivals willing to screen indie films, documentaries, and foreign imports. The Irvington Town Hall Theater in Irvington, NY has been doing just that for the past 5 years — offering an array of wonderful films in the small village along the Hudson River. On Wed, May 21 at 8p.m. they will end their 5th season with a screening of the documentary Elaine Stritch: Shoot Me that follows the incredible actress known for film, Broadway and more recently from the TV show “30 Rock”. I was able to speak to the woman behind that film and I don’t mean the source of the documentary. I mean the mutli-talented filmmaker Chiemi Karasawa whose film made the festival circuit last year and now has screenings across the U.S. The director/producer will be in attendance in Irvington on the 21st and I wanted to dig deeper to learn more about the person behind the camera.

Gregory Allen: You have been in the film industry for over 20 years, what made you decide this was the life for you?

Chiemi Karasawa: That’s an interesting question! I think it has to do with a love of adventure and storytelling. My career began in feature films, as an assistant to a Producer, and then as a Script Supervisor. We were always shooting in fantastic locations, with diverse and talented people both in front of and behind the camera. The idea of getting together and making a film from start to finish is a bit like joining the circus, except at the end there is this finished film that goes out into the world. I can’t think of anything more rewarding than that. Filmmaking is not a job, it’s a lifestyle — a challenging one, but it’s a relationship to something that is constantly expanding your life in some way.

Allen: Love that! “A lifestyle”. Many people do not understand what a script supervisor does, yet anyone looking at your IMDB page will find that next to your name on major films such as High Fidelity, Adaptation, The Taking of Pelham 123, and The Spitfire Grill – just to name a few. Can you enlighten us a little on that position?

Karasawa: Script Supervising is a position I wouldn’t wish on my greatest enemy, and yet if you can handle all the meticulous and stressful responsibilities, you will have a great vantage point to the craft of Directing, Cinematography, Acting and Producing. A Script Supervisor is basically in charge of maintaining details involved in translating the story to the screen through Editorial notes – creating the blueprints for editing the film together based on the way it has been shot, noting the Director’s preference for takes and any other discretions, cuing the actors on lines and blocking, maintaining camera and sound details, maintaining a master continuity log of the film. In a sense, you’re the Director’s right hand, along with an AD. It’s a lot of responsibility, and little recognition. But you gain valuable relationships and experiences, and the exposure to the shooting process, and the translation from story to screen, is infinite.

Allen: I recently returned from a film festival down the shore in NJ and was impressed with the documentary shorts that I saw, yet too many times filmmakers shy away from documentaries. (As do some film goers.) You embraced it head on in 2005 when you started Isotope Films which has been very successful in getting non-fiction into the world. What was the significance/importance of founding this film company?

Karasawa: I didn’t really know my company would focus on documentaries and true stories until I realized how much time it takes to raise the money for narrative films, attach actors, wait for schedules to align, etc. My first documentary, Billy the Kid, was comparatively easy compared to the struggle of financing and scheduling a narrative film. And once that film did well, I continued to get hired on documentary projects – it seemed everyone I knew had a doc in their back pocket they were trying to get made. So I feel fortunate that my career has taken that route, but I love storytelling in all forms. But I do find true stories particularly appealing and inspiring, generally more entertaining than anything someone can make up.

Allen: As someone currently in my own fundraising campaign for a narrative film – I feel your pain. How did working with some amazing directors such as Spike Jonze, Sam Mendes, and Martin Scorsese assist you in entering that position with your documentary Elaine Stritch: Shoot Me?

Karasawa: All the experiences that I’ve had working with directors have been a valuable education for me, and I’ve worked with both Spike and Marty on their own documentaries as well. All the directors you mention, in particular, all have a visceral passion for storytelling. They are tireless when it comes to what they want to achieve and that energy is inspiring.

Allen: As someone who has made non-fiction stories her life as a producer for almost ten years, what was it about Ms. Stritch that made you know “I want her life to be my directorial debut”?

Karasawa: It was actually Elaine’s idea. I didn’t know if financing would be viable as a first-time director. When I had the conversation with Elaine, she basically said “I don’t want to deal with anyone else – why can’t you just do it?” I was both relieved and nervous, but I did it and I’m so glad I did. I think the film was able to be much more intimate because of our relationship at that stage, and I have her to thank for making that opportunity possible.

Allen: She has had such a varied and wonderful career in film, TV and stage – have you always been a fan of her in those different genres?

Karasawa: I came very late to that party. I only had a very cursory knowledge of Elaine’s work when we met at my hair salon on 57th Street. I knew “30 Rock” and I worked with her briefly on Romance and Cigarettes when she was cast as Jim Gandolfini’s mother. It was really Piet (hairstylist at Vartali) who suggested that I make a film about her after making the introduction. I was initially intrigued, but when I researched her at the NYPL video archive, then Googled and YouTub’ed her, I was blown away. It wasn’t only her performances that impressed me, it was what I gleaned from her appearances on TV talk shows, and her personal life. She was a force of nature, and I couldn’t wait to expose more people to who she was – not only in the theater, but in life. She has incredible vitality and courage, and as someone who is unique in every way, a true role model.

Allen: As a documentary filmmaker, you are keeping a distance from your subject and yet always there. In the end, do you feel you created a deeper relationship with Elaine Stritch?

Karasawa: Absolutely! You cannot spend 2 years following someone throughout their day-to-day life, on the road, and not have a “deeper” relationship with them unless you are robot. Elaine demands that of anyone who spends time with her. We became very close throughout the filming, I was going through many things in my life and she was a great friend to me. I am still in touch with her and have visited her in Birmingham many times. She is so many things to me, it’s tough to explain, but the way our relationship evolved is well represented in the film. I think the success of this film has a lot to do with access, and I was fortunate to be given a lot of access to Elaine because she encouraged it.

Allen: I personally think it’s wonderful because you are expanding the audience of documentaries as there are many that will see your film because they know of her as a stage actress or others that fell in love with her on “30 Rock.” Do you think your next directing project will be another documentary or will you return to the world of narrative film?

Karasawa: I’m unbiased, I’m interested in any great story that is worth bringing into the world. Currently, I have several projects on the burner, and one of them is a true story that is being developed into a narrative film, so I guess you can say I’ve come full circle!
