Quebranto 1

Best LGBT Film, Guadalajara International Film Festival, 2013  

Guerrero Press Award, Morelia International Film Festival, 2013

Coral Bonelli was first known as “Pinolito,” a child actor in the 1970s Mexican film industry. The son of a mariachi and an actress, he grew up poor but a natural performer and was steered by his passionate stage mother, Lilia. After working in movies, “Pinolito” performed on the demanding cabaret circuit and then announced that he would become a woman. With her devoted, aging mother by her side, Coral deals with social prejudice and struggles to piece a living together.

Director Roberto Fiesco’s quietly expansive documentary feature debut (gorgeously lensed by Mario Guerrero) is a steadily evolving, revelatory portrait of gender identity, showbiz, and family set against the endemic homophobia—as well as diverse springs of acceptance—in Mexican society. Disrupted evokes a delicate balance in which the wearying task of survival and an indomitable romantic imagination live side-by-side in an often cruel but also unexpectedly generous life.  –Robert Avila, Frameline

La Jaula de Oro 2

Official Official Selection Cannes Film Festival 2013 Audience Award

Morelia International Film Festival, 2013

Three teenagers from the slums of Guatemala - tough guy Juan; Sara, who disguises herself as a boy; and Samuel, the smallest and most easily swayed of the trio - undertake the treacherous 1,200-mile trek through Mexico for the United States to find a better life. On their journey they meet Chauk, a Tzotzil Indian from Chiapas who doesn’t speak Spanish and has no official documents. They ride atop dilapidated trains, undergoing an unrelenting, arduous journey in which no one they meet can be trusted and catastrophe waits around every corner. Along the way, the foursome must contend with corrupt cops, ruthless bandits, and a gang of kidnappers. From their journey, director Diego Quemada-Diez fashions a powerful yet unsentimental film filled with action, humor, and intrigue. Constantly upending audience expectations, this unrelentingly tense immigration thriller leaves viewers on the edge of their seats until its shocking ending.

[This] is a very substantial movie, with great compassion and urgency.                                       —Peter Bradshaw, Guardian

Heli 2

Official Mexican submission to the 86th Academy Awards for Best Foreign Language Film  

Best Director, Cannes International Film Festival, 2013

Warning: this film contains extreme violence.

Mexico’s selection for the Academy Awards for Best Foreign Film, Heli is not for the faint of heart.  Factory worker Heli lives a modest life with his father and his sister Estela in rural Mexico. In a misguided attempt to finance his elopement with the 12-year-old Estela, police cadet Beto steals two large packages of cocaine, setting off a string of increasingly bloody, painful, and even fatal consequences. While Heli shocked some Cannes critics for its unflinching portrayal of drug violence, it was awarded the prize for Best Director.

New Wave Mexican style: raw, gritty, and force fed… Creeping paranoia seeps into even the most innocuous moment, so the film functions as clammy thriller as well as poetic agitprop. [Escalante] has shot a damning indictment of contemporary Mexico, capturing its institutionalized corruption, its endemic cruelty. What makes it palatable are the grace notes.... Shut your eyes entirely to its horrors and you’ll really miss out.—Catherine Shoard, Guardian

 #1 Box Office Hit in Mexican History

Successful construction mogul Herman Noble realizes that his children are utterly spoiled. His oldest son, Javier, neglects the family business and engages in ridiculous business ideas. His daughter, Barbara, gets engaged to an older gigolo just to spite her father. His youngest son, Charlie, was expelled from college for having sex with a teacher. Herman decides to teach them a lesson. He stages a company bankruptcy and seizure of all their assets and tricks them into believing they are fugitives from the law. He moves them into their grandfather’s dilapidated home in a poor neighborhood and makes them do something none of them have ever done before… work.

Co-writer/director Gary Alazraki's first feature may sound formulaic… but the performances are genuine and the narrative beats land solidly for a perfectly enjoyable feel-good dramedy.- LA Times

Alex has big plans for his summer in Guadalajara.

Increasingly worried about his deteriorating grandmother, Alex realizes he must learn to deal with loneliness and begin to say goodbye to his innocence. Armed with a full cast of local untrained actors and based on the director/writer’s personal memories, SOMOS MARI PEPA is a love letter to, and a voyage through, the alleys and garages of Atemajac, Jalisco. Establishing director Samuel Kishi Leopo as a new, exciting voice in independent Mexican cinema, the film skillfully and comically captures the breakdown of adolescent rebellion in a period in which boys are forced to become men. - Dilcia Barrera, AFI Fest

In Spanish with English Subtitles

Club Sandwich

Best Director, San Sebastian Film Festival 2013

Low-key, poignant, and funny, Club Sandwich provides a humorous twist on the adolescent coming-of-age story from a mother's point of view. Thirty-five-year-old single mom Paloma and her fifteen year- old son Hector are vacationing at a deserted, off-season hotel. Oddly close, they spend endless amounts of time together and are more like best friends than mother and son. For Paloma this listless idyll is upset when Hector meets Jazmin, a girl his age. There’s sexual chemistry between the two teenagers, and Hector is ready to take his first tentative steps into the world of teenage sex. Paloma finds herself, slowly but surely, becoming the third wheel. Then there’s the very awkward game of truth or dare.

 

The director’s deadpan comic style is grounded in a deliciously awkward use of silence and the unspoken, punctuated by occasional exchanges about nothing in particular. In Club Sandwich, Eimbcke uses his precise timing and composition to demonstrate that less can still sometimes be more. - Lincoln Film Society

Pitch Fest to pair local film ideas with expert feedback

Posted Sep 16, 2013, 1:48 pm

Once being a film and television writer meant having to leave home, and venturing to New York or Hollywood, where you competed with thousands of other hopeful writers for a chance at meeting an industry professional and maybe having a script developed. 

The dream of getting that movie made could be a bit closer after Pitch Fest Tucson, Sept. 27 and 28 at the University of Arizona's Marshall Building, The event allows local writers to pitch their ideas to industry professionals, with the winner landing a one-on-one consulting session with a producer.

The two-day event will include one day of work and instruction, where participants are taught the basics of pitching, as well as how to improve their pitch. On the second day, participants will present their ideas to professionals, and the winning pitch will be selected.

Pitch Fest developed out of workshops and seminars held by Lorna Soroko, who is now one of the event's judges, said Vicky Westover, director of the Hanson Film Institute at the University of Arizona.

“I thought that it was a great idea,” Westover said.

That idea lead to the creation of Pitch Fest, first held last year. That inaugural event drew in over 20 participants who pitched to seven judges, “each pitching three times to three different judges.” Westover said.

"We had a waiting list with people begging us to let them pitch," she said.

That success prompted organizers to include an eighth judge, as they expect even more participants this year.

Last year’s winner, Josh Weisman, went to Los Angeles to meet producer and talent manager Matt Luber. Weisman's pitch for "Cupid" was eventually developed into a short film.

This year's winner will also get a one-on-one session with Luber via Skype. Other prizes include a consultation with a judge of the winner’s choice.

Those interested in a chance at having their ideas make the silver screen should register by Wednesday by emailing PitchFestTucson@gmail.com or calling 626-1405.

Film, Television Students Gain Valuable National Experience

Film, Television Students Gain Valuable National Experience

UA undergraduates Christopher Cegielski (Navajo) and Rafael Gomez have just wrapped up part-time jobs working with a national film association. It is yet another example of ways University affiliates rely on their contacts to gain valuable experiences. 

Rafael Gomez (left) and Christopher Cegielski(second from left) with members if the NALIP staff. (Photo courtesy of NALIP).
 
Cegielski and Gomez, both UA School of Theatre, Film & Television students, were selected by the Univeristy’s Hanson Film Insitute to serve as interns for the National Association of Latino Independent Producers (NALIP) Summer 2013 Latino Producers Academy (LPA).
 
But something even more thrilling happened.

 

After their phone interview with LPA director Richard Saiz for what was going to be two unpaid internship positions, Cegielski and Gomez were each offered paid part-time positions. 

"The Hanson Film Institute has partnered with NALIP for nine years to provide professional development opportunities to UA students and alumni. I was delighted that Richard chose to hire Chris and Raphael, and our students did not disappoint," said Vicky Westover, director of the UA Hanson Film Institute. "The feedback I got from NALIP staff and participating filmmakers at the Academy was that they did an excellent job." 

NALIP, a national membership organization, addresses the professional needs of Latino/Latina independent producers and promotes the advancement, development and funding of Latino/Latina film and media arts in all genres. 

During their time with NALIP, Cegielski and Gomez held different professional positions serving as travel coordinators, assistant program coordinators and videographers.

The majority of their work was focused on managing the logistics of LPA, which provides a 10-day intensive mentoring program for filmmakers to help develop their projects and help them advance in the industry. 

Cegielski said the work was "fast and meticulous," but that the networking opportunities and experience gained made the position invaluable. 

"I felt like I gained an entire family of filmmakers I can call on in the future," Cegielski said.

Gomez, who had worked for NALIP as an intern the previous summer, also was grateful for the professional experience.

"The work was both challenging and rewarding," said Gomez, also a UA Honors College student.

Both are now in the process of creating their senior BFA films and are planning to graduate from the UA in May 2013.

Not only will the experience be benefial to their academic development, but also professional work, Westover said. "I think that Chris and Raphael increased greatly their likelihood of finding a job after graduation and that is what the partnership is designed to do." 

Contact: Vicky Westover, director of the UA Hanson Film Institute, at 520-626-9825 or vwestove@email.arizona.edu. The Hanson Film Institute works in partnership with the UA film and television program and in collaboration with diverse UA entities and local, national and international organizations producing educational programs, public events and creative projects.

Who is Dayani Cristal?

The UA Hanson Film Institute and the Director Marc Silver invite you to a private screening of ‘Who is Dayani Cristal?’

Deep in the sun-blistered Arizona desert, Border Patrol discover a decomposing male body.

Lifting a tattered T-shirt, they expose a tattoo that reads ‘Dayani Cristal’. Who is this person? What brought him here? How did he die? And who - or what - is Dayani Cristal?

Tuesday July 16th

Doors open 6.30pm Screening begins at 7pm

Center for Creative Photography 1030 Olive Rd Tucson AZ 85721

RSVP claudiarjimenez@gmail.com

The screening will be followed by a panel discussion with director, Marc Silver and the Missing Persons Coordinator for the Pima County Office of the Medical Examiner, Robin Reineke.

 

Following a team of dedicated staff from the Pima County Morgue in Arizona, director Marc Silver seeks to give identity to an anonymous man. As the forensic investigation unfolds, Mexican actor and activist Gael Garcia Bernal retraces this man’s steps along the migrant trail in Central America. In an effort to understand what it must have felt like to make this journey, he embeds himself among migrant travelers on their own mission to cross the border. He experiences first-hand the dangers they face and learns of their motivations, hopes and fears. As we travel north, these voices from the other side of the border wall give us a rare insight into the human stories which are so often ignored in the immigration debate.

NALIP 2013 Latino Producers Academy™

"Public Media/Documentary Lab"

 A NALIP National Signature Program in association with the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, HBO and the UA Hanson Film Institute 

The Latino Producers Academy™ is an intensive 10-day course that provides one-on-one professional mentoring for Fellows in a laboratory environment in order to enhance the viability of their projects and make them more competitive for public media funding. 

NALIP invites directors of feature documentaries or new media projects to apply to the Latino Producers Academy. Projects must be about a subject concerning Latinos and/or the director must be Latino. 

For the documentary track, projects must be in the post-production phase, ranging from edited selects, a trailer, to a full rough cut. 

For the new media track, we are looking for web-native projects (conceived, designed, and produced for online distribution) that take advantage of the unique properties of the internet and digital media: data, location, participation, co-creation, interactivity. Along with innovative modes of video storytelling, we are also open to innovations in form, format, genre, and use of technology within public media. Projects should be in the discovery/development stage, or early production, to get the most out of the academy. 

This program is competitive and highly selective. It is open to NALIP members who have produced work on which they played a key creative role. All professional independent producers/directors are eligible to apply regardless of experience. All accepted Fellows are invited on full scholarship: materials, lodging, and meals provided by the LPA funders and sponsors.

Travel to Santa Fe, New Mexico is the responsibility of the Fellows.

Academy Fellows will be selected based on the type and quality of their recent work, their commitment to careers in producing and media leadership, their dedication to sharpening their craft, and their potential to benefit from this Academy scholarship opportunity.

Applicants must be current NALIP members and at least 18 years of age. If you are not currently a member of NALIP, please click here to join

These artists and craftsmen represent the storytellers that will power the media of tomorrow with their drive and vision," said FotoKem’s Director of Student Services Walt Rose, who will be traveling from Los Angeles to attend the event and present the award to the winning student director.
