Why don't we do it on the road?

How do you tell a story about things that happened in the past? It is easier to film something that's going on, even though you can fuck up while editing. But this one is a beauty. It is about a certain road in London and that picture of the Beatles that was once taken there. You know...

Storytelling in its pure format: a conflict, an ongoing action and an amazing main character. But more important; what a sad story...

This film has won several prices.

Vlad is suffering from incurable brain cancer. Despite his chronic pain, doctors in Ukraine are only allowed to prescribe 50 mg of pain medicine. In another country, doctors would typically prescribe more than 2,000 mg for a patient like Vlad.

breach of faith

In the harrowing days after the Haiti earthquake, filmmakers Shaul Schwarz and Julie Platner witnessed families mourning loved ones and youths whose injuries meant tragic choices of life over limb.

The filmmakers are using the power of images in a very strong way. Show, don’t tell. But keep distance, not too much though…

borderland

Dick is right. "Every American should see this." It is real and it is striking. In some places it stands 18 feet tall and looks like the gates of Mordor. In other places, it is barely 10 feet tall and looks like it was put together with a stapler. It runs from the Colorado River directly into the Pacific. It is big, intense and intimidating. And it is unfinished. Gaping holes are everywhere. Physically it’s confusing. Politically it’s puzzling. Ideologically it’s complicated. But for Dick and Ron, who both live within a few miles of the border, defending it is simply a matter of protecting themselves and preserving their own beliefs. Drug smugglers don't come to the United States to make an honest living. As the recent killing of Border Patrol Agent Robert Rosas shows, the border is more than a moral line in the sand. The fence is real. We recommend a visit.
