          • Beautiful War?!?


            from Scott Lyus / Added

            103 Plays / / 0 Comments

            A short film that outlines the thin line between the natural beauty that is all around us, against the destruction of this beauty through war and misguided and misused works of power. Shot over the period of a year using Super 8mm film and mixed with stock footage of war, this short tells a story of mans destruction of the world we so briefly occupy, our world leaders disregard and nonexistent faith for working towards a better world of tomorrow and a constant arrogance to see the mistakes we have and still are making. Beautiful War uses contrast as its tool to ask questions and underline serious problems that our world leaders need to address, before our faith in humanities capability to co-exist and evolve disappears once and for all. We are given so much to admire for free, why do we choose to destroy it? And we are constantly told we are evolving faster as a civilization then ever before, but when we look at the evidence, are we really learning?

            • Below the Line Director Series "Winter in the Blood" Directors Alex & Andrew Smith; Producer/Interviewer/Editor: MaryAnn Skweres


              from DreamStar Film and Music, Inc. / Added

              Based on the beloved first novel by Native American writer and poet, James Welch, Winter in the Blood is about the hardscrabble life of a young Blackfoot man and his family in the isolation of the Montana high plains. Virgil First Raise (Chaske Spenser) embarks on an inebriated and darkly comic odyssey to retrieve his renegade wife – and the beloved rifle she stole, facing delusional demons while transcending raw childhood memories and traumas to move forward in his life and ultimately find himself. Drawing on a strong sense of place and themes formed by their own personal family history, brothers Alex and Andrew Smith direct the formative story with a naturalistic touch and unwavering honesty. They share their experiences creating the film with Below the Line. In addition to crediting casting director Rene Haynes for helping to assemble the primarily Native American cast which includes Chaske Spenser (The Twilight Saga), Julia Jones (The Twilight Saga), Richard Ray Whitman (Four Sheets to the Wind), Casey Camp-Horinek (Geronimo), and Gary Farmer (Adaptation), they sing the praises of key crew collaborators such as cinematographer Paula Huidobro, production designer David Storm, and film editor Michael Hofacre. On a project that relied heavily on community involvement to get the film made, they give shout outs to the students from the University of Montana and Native American interns from Longhouse Media that filled important roles in the production. Screening Saturday, June 22, 1:10 pm (99 min.) at LA Film Festival. Official Trailer: http://vimeo.com/51230755 Website: http://winterinthebloodfilm.com/press
