Cinematic Red…A Full Service Public RELATIONS  COMPANY IS PROUD TO PRESENT IN THE SANTA BARBARA FILM FESTIVAL 3 VERY SPECIAL FILMS.

We are excited to share our richly diverse Santa Barbara International Film Festival (SBIFF) slate with you. We greatly appreciate your interview & review coverage consideration in your SBIFF preview, highlights and overall coverage for these three extraordinary cinematic visions — an intimate drama inspired by French New Wave cinema “Show Me What You Got” from acclaimed filmmaker & cinematographer Svetlana Cvetko and executive producer Phillip Noyce (“Dead Calm,” “Patriot Games,” “The Quiet American,” “The Bone Collector,” and the upcoming “Above Suspicion” with Emilia Clarke); and two powerful and diverse documentaries’ making their world premiere at SBIFF — “Bastards’ Road,” from filmmaker Brian Morrison which follows the brutal internal struggles of a combat veteran grappling with the transition back to civilian life who emerges on an epic journey across the country on foot to spark change; and the gripping “The Prison Within” from filmmaker Katherin Hervey, a timely documentary exploring the destructive impact untreated trauma through the powerful stories of survivors of violent crimes and prisoners incarcerated for murder in San Quentin prison.

The deeply moving “Bastards’ Road,” from first time filmmaker director Brian Morrison follows the internal struggles of Jon Hancock, a combat veteran who after years of struggling to transition back to civilian life decided to take an epic journey across the country on foot which premieres on Sunday, January 26th. Walking nearly 6,000 miles alone, Jon confronts the demons that had overtaken his life. Visiting his fellow 2/4 Marines – known as the The Magnificent Bastards – and families of their fallen along the way, Jon finds a mission greater than his own redemption.

“Show Me What You Got” is the feature-film directorial debut of OSCAR® Winning documentary cinematographer Svetlana Cvetko. It is a contemporary take on “Jules & Jim” done in a cinéma-vérité style adeptly captures this love affair with a deliciously modern Jules et Jim flair, combining tenderness, artistry, and three fresh and appealing leads. Executive produced by Phillip Noyce (“Dead Calm,” “Patriot Games,” “The Quiet American,” “The Bone Collector,” and the upcoming “Above Suspicion” with Emilia Clarke) and featuring the work of Music Composer Eric Avery (co-founding member and bassist of Jane’s Addiction, as well as having been a member of Nine Inch Nails and The Smashing Pumpkins, he recently composed “The 11th Hour” with Leonardo DiCaprio). Produced and edited by David Scott Smith (“Yours Sincerely,” “Lois Weber, “Behind the Mask,” a short doc on Tim Robbins’ Actors’ Gang Prison Project, and the recent “The Architect”starring Parker Posey and Eric McCormack). An award winning film that has swept through the film festival circuit beginning with Taormina International Film Festival (Cariddi D’Oro Award for Best Film), Terra Di Siena International Film Festival (Best International Film Award), Mill Valley International Film Festival, etc this fall.

“The Prison Within” is narrated by Hill Harper (“The Good Doctor,” “Homeland,” “CSI:NY,” “Covert Affairs”) and author of Letters to an Incarcerated Brother, which speaks to the current mass incarceration crisis. Award-winning composer Ruth Mendelson developed the original score for the documentary. “The Prison Within” is a relevant and timely documentary exploring the destructive impact untreated trauma has on individuals and communities through the powerful stories of survivors of violent crimes and prisoners incarcerated for murder in San Quentin prison. The prisoners and survivors come together and participate in the Victim Offender Education Group (VOEG)—an innovative restorative justice program enabling prisoners to discover how the trauma they’ve experienced contributed to their criminality and to understand the impact their crimes have on their victims. Together, the prisoners and survivors confront and expose the pain and shame caused by the extreme trauma they’ve experienced throughout their lives. Below please find further information on both films, as well as private screener links for your preview/highlights, interview & review Sundance/Slamdance coverage consideration. Your incredible continued support of independent film is invaluable and greatly appreciated! We will have our filmmakers and select documentary subjects onsite in Park City for in-person interviews.

“Bastards’ Road”

SBIFF World Premiere Documentary Competition Feature Film

Logline: Coming home from war is just the beginning.

Synopsis:Like many Combat Veterans, transitioning back to civilian life was very difficult for Jon Hancock. After years of struggling, Jon decided to take an epic journey across the country – on foot.

Walking nearly 6,000 miles alone, Jon confronts the demons that had overtaken his life. Visiting his fellow 2/4 Marines – known as the The Magnificent Bastards – and families of their fallen along the way, Jon finds a mission greater than his own redemption. Veterans everywhere are struggling with PTSD. They are taking their own lives at an alarming rate – 50% higher than non-veterans.

With remarkable honesty, insight and humor, Jon’s journey is uniquely positive. It’s about changing the ways one relates to traumatic memories. It’s about beginning the healing process.

“Show Me What You Got”

SBIFF Crossing Borders Section Feature Film

“Show Me What You Got” is the feature-film directorial debut of OSCAR® Winning documentary cinematographer Svetlana Cvetko. It is a contemporary take on “Jules & Jim” done in a cinéma-vérité style adeptly captures this love affair with a deliciously modern Jules et Jim flair, combining tenderness, artistry, and three fresh and appealing leads. Executive produced by Phillip Noyce (“Dead Calm,” “Patriot Games,” “The Quiet American,” “The Bone Collector,” and the upcoming “Above Suspicion” with Emilia Clarke) and featuring the work of Music Composer Eric Avery (co-founding member and bassist of Jane’s Addiction, as well as having been a member of Nine Inch Nails and The Smashing Pumpkins, he recently composed “The 11th Hour” with Leonardo DiCaprio). Produced and edited by David Scott Smith (“Yours Sincerely,” “Lois Weber, “Behind the Mask,” a short doc on Tim Robbins’ Actors’ Gang Prison Project, and the recent “The Architect”starring Parker Posey and Eric McCormack). An award winning film that has swept through the film festival circuit beginning with Taormina International Film Festival (Cariddi D’Oro Award for Best Film), Terra Di Siena International Film Festival (Best International Film Award), Mill Valley International Film Festival, etc this fall.

Starring Cristina Rambaldi (“Distant Vision,” “Inferno,” and granddaughter of Carlo Rambaldi, oscar-winning creature designer of “ET”), Mattia Minasi (“La Partita, “Being”), Neyssan Falahi (“Modern Family,” “Judith”), Anne Brochet (a two time Cesar award-winning French actress best known for “Cyrano de Bergerac,” “Tous les Matins du Monde”), Italian TV Star Pietro Genuardi (“Cemetery Man,” “Solo Per Amore”)

Synopsis:

Richly filmed in black and white on the cityscape of Los Angeles, three twentysomethings come together, sparking with the restless energy of the French New Wave. Each member of the threesome is in transition: fun-loving Marcello from under the thumb of his Italian soap star father, soulful French-Iranian actor Nassim toward a more fulfilling career, and artist Christine through the grief following the death of her grandfather. But the frolicsome trio finds joy and release together—exploring their sexuality, joining political protests, making art, and falling deeper into their unconventional amour—until Marcello must return to Italy and their experience there threatens the delicate balance of their relationship.

“The Prison Within”

SBIFF Social Justice Section World Premiere Documentary

“The Prison Within” is narrated by Hill Harper (“The Good Doctor,” “Homeland,” “CSI:NY,” “Covert Affairs”) and author of Letters to an Incarcerated Brother, which speaks to the current mass incarceration crisis. Award-winning composer Ruth Mendelson developed the original score for the documentary. “The Prison Within” is a relevant and timely documentary exploring the destructive impact untreated trauma has on individuals and communities through the powerful stories of survivors of violent crimes and prisoners incarcerated for murder in San Quentin prison. The prisoners and survivors come together and participate in the Victim Offender Education Group (VOEG)—an innovative restorative justice program enabling prisoners to discover how the trauma they’ve experienced contributed to their criminality and to understand the impact their crimes have on their victims. Together, the prisoners and survivors confront and expose the pain and shame caused by the extreme trauma they’ve experienced throughout their lives. Seattle-based Director Katherin Hervey, a former Los Angeles Public Defender and volunteer prison college instructor, is the first filmmaker to gain access to chronicle these intimate and revealing sessions inside San Quentin Prison.

This film serves as an example of how all people can change, how we can evolve as a community, and the power of connecting to the humanity in others, even those who have committed harm. The filmmakers aim to inspire a dialogue about the shared responsibility we all have to collectively heal our mass incarceration crisis; and to motivate definitive community justice reform that breaks the cycle of recidivism and the criminalization of marginalized communities.

The film features expert voices from nationally recognized leaders within the restorative justice community. Guest experts include Sonya Shah, sujatha baliga, and Troy Williams.

Sonya Shah, founder and director of The Ahimsa Collective, has over 20 years experience in social justice education and over 10 years experience in restorative justice. She is also an Associate Professor at the California Institute of Integral Studies (CIIS) and recipient of the prestigious Fulbright fellowship and Jacob Javitz fellowship.

sujatha baliga, is the director of The Restorative Justice Project at Impact Justice, and a former victim advocate and public defender, who was awarded a Soros Justice Fellowship in 2008 which she used to launch a pre-charge restorative juvenile diversion program. She was recently awarded the prestigious MacArthur Foundation ‘Genius’ Grant.

Troy Williams, a formerly incarcerated prisoner at San Quentin, is the co-founder of the San Quentin Prison Report (SQPR) and a current Soros Justice Fellow. As SQPR’s producer, founding Chairman, and Chief Executive Officer, Troy spent the last seven years of his incarceration teaching his peers to produce audio works behind prison walls, working out of the same media lab now used by “Ear Hustle.” He also helped develop the curriculum for the Victim-Offender Education Group (VOEG) and has facilitated other restorative justice programs, both inside and outside of San Quentin.

Article By: Marcelle - Nov• 23•19

LA SKINS FILM FEST WELCOMES DIRECTOR MORALES-HEMENWAY WITH ROMANTIC COMEDY BRIDE +1

Who?

With imagination and tenacity award-winning director, writer and actress Christina Morales Hemenway has been living true to her artistic

voice since bribing the neighborhood kids to be in her productions in Ann Arbor, Michigan. While in high school she earned a full scholarship to study with world famous mime, Marcel Marceau. She later continued her artistic development at California Institute of the Arts earning a BFA in Performance.

Since then she has written and directed several shorts, music videos, and 4 feature films: Autumn Leaves, Dreammaker, Naked Angel and the upcoming romantic comedy, Bride+1. Dreammaker won the Audience Choice Award and/or Best Feature film in every festival in which it has played with screenings in Los Angeles, Chicago, Louisville, Ann Arbor and Rome, Italy. The films were distributed nationwide and can be found online.

Her feature film, Naked Angel, was an official selection of the Detroit Winsor Film Festival and so far has enjoyed successful screenings at the Michigan Theater in Ann Arbor and the Screen Actor’s Guild Foundation in Los Angeles.
Christina is presently coaching actors and gearing up to do the festival circuit with her feature, Bride +1. Christina spends her time in Michigan and L.A. where she is in development on several projects that she will direct.

What?

Filmmaker, Christina Morales Hemenway, stars in this hilarious romantic comedy with a fabulous cast you’ll recognize from Will & Grace (Yelyna De Leon), Independence Day (James Duval) and the Academy Award-winning film for Best Motion Picture Green Book (Don DiPetta).

Bride +1 tells the story of Clarissa, a 39 year old Latina woman who has never been married, but wants kids. So she sends out a “save the date” notice for her wedding to all her loved ones, even though she has no groom– yet. She figures if she builds it, her groom will come.

The film, written and directed by Morales Hemenway and produced by Dancingstar Productions showcases a cast starring Morales Hemenway as the determined bride-to-be Clarissa, James Duval (Jothem), Yelyna De León (Bita), Don DiPetta (Manny), Michael Morano (Gregorio), and Johnny Moreno (Esteban).
