NAACP Image Award® Nominee Trevante Rhodes and Emmy® Nominee Natasha Lyonne co-star along with Garrett Hedlund, Miss Lawrence, Rob Morgan, Da'Vine Joy Randolph, Evan Ross, Tyler James Williams, Tone Bell, and Erik LaRay Harvey.

The legendary Billie Holiday, one of the greatest jazz musicians of all time, spent much of her career being adored by fans across the globe. Beginning in the 1940’s in New York City, the federal government targeted Holiday in a growing effort to escalate and racialize the war on drugs, ultimately aiming to stop her from singing her controversial and heart-wrenching ballad,

“Strange Fruit.” Led by Oscar® nominated director Lee Daniels and introducing Grammy® nominated singer-songwriter Andra Day, The United States vs. Billie Holiday unapologetically presents the icon’s complicated, irrepressible life. Screenplay writer Suzan-Lori Parks, the first African American woman to win a Pulitzer Prize for Drama, pens this intimate tale of a fierce trailblazer whose defiance through music helped usher in the civil rights movement.

THE UNITED STATES VS. BILLIE HOLIDAY – COMING SOON


TRAILER: Award Winning Psychological Thriller, HELP, created during lockdown

Set for release summer 2021, HELP follows Grace, who after a painful break up visits her friend Liv who is living in the idyllic English countryside with her boyfriend Edward and his dog Polly. The trio start the weekend in high spirits but dark revelations soon cascade the weekend into chaos.

Shot in just 12 days during lockdown with a cast & crew of only 20 people, HELP is an exciting example of the high quality films that can be produced despite this difficult time.

The film stars an incredible up and coming cast including, Louis James (The English Teacher), Emily Redpath (Romeo & Juliet) and Sarah Alexandra Marks (Glamour) as well as cameo performance from British boyband legend Duncan James from Blue!

The cast are already receiving critical acclaim for their performances, with Film Threat giving it their recommendation and Rome's independent film awards, Prisma, describing the film as a 'tense and dark tale, at times disturbing but always seductive'.
 
Director Blake Ridder said "It still hasn't quite sunk in yet that we made a film during a lockdown 2 months ago, and now it's ready for release. Not only that, it's also getting so much love from the festivals, it's a great feeling. I can't wait for everyone to see this. The film explores human relationships in its rawest form. "


Interview with documentary filmmaker Paul Allen Hunton

Paul Allen Hunton, General Manager of Texas Tech Public Media, and a 3 time Emmy winning nonfiction filmmaker, tells us about his versatile, admirable career and film work.


Hey Paul, can you tell us a bit about Texas Tech Public Media?

Sure, we are a public media hub that broadcasts and streams NPR and PBS throughout West Texas. We focus on serving our communities but also telling stories that connect to all people. We love documentary filmmaking because it helps teach people about the world around them and their place in it. It is important to discover new places, people, thoughts, and ideas, as it helps you empathize with others. That's what we strive for, to create empathy for others through the stories we tell.


How many of the films releasing through the company did you direct?

I've directed lots of shorts, created some TV shows, but have directed 2 feature length documentaries with a few more on the way. Between Earth and Sky is about climate change in the arctic of Alaska and how it effects native people. Narratives of Modern Genocide is about the survivors of modern genocide and what their stories can teach us about the world.


You gravitate towards documentaries but is there a certain type – or subject -  of documentary that you find you gravitate towards?

I've done a lot of didactic, interview based documentary. Lately I've been more interested in art documentaries, or more specifically, documentaries that tell stories through abstract visuals and ideas of image, sound, and perspective.


Can you tell us about some of the research, and researchers conducting it, involved in the film?

We worked with the Baylor genocide oral history project, the Texas Holocaust and Genocide Commission, as well as the researchers in the movie, Ron Milam, Aliza Wong, and other professors. We leaned on their expertise to better understand genocide in history and in the present time.


What do you believe is the film's significance?

The film tells the story of former Ambassador to the UN under President George W. Bush, Sichan Siv, and Gilbert Tuhabonye. Both survived genocides in their home countries of Cambodia and Burundi. Both are strong survivors who succeeded greatly for themselves after an arduous journey to America. They both embody the American dream, to come to this country and work hard and find your place, it is a pretty special thing. They also teach us something about survival, what it means to survive and continue living. I think that's important.  


What happened to Tuhabonye wasn't that long ago. How do you feel he and Siv have recovered since their ordeal?

I wouldn't want to answer for them, but I'd say through my experience working with them that the tragedies and pain they've endured will be with them forever. Yet, somehow they've survived and continue to show strength, hope, love and inspiration.


NARRATIVES OF MODERN GENOCIDE is now available on DVD and Digital

Starring Tessa Thompson, Nnamdi Asomugha, Aja Naomi King, Jemima Kirke, Tone Bell, Alano Miller, with Wendi Mclendon-Covey and Eva Longoria 

In Sylvie’s Love, the jazz is smooth and the air sultry in the hot New York summer of 1957. Robert (Nnamdi Asomugha), a saxophonist, spends late nights playing behind a less-talented but well-known bandleader, as member of a jazz quartet. Sylvie (Tessa Thompson), who dreams of a career in television, spends her summer days helping around her father’s record store, as she waits for her fiancé to return from war. When Robert takes a part-time job at the record store, the two begin a friendship that sparks a deep passion in each of them unlike anything they have felt before. As the summer winds down, life takes them in different directions, bringing their relationship to an end. Years pass, Sylvie’s career as a TV producer blossoms, while Robert has to come to terms with what the age of Motown is doing to the popularity of Jazz. In a chance meeting, Sylvie and Robert cross paths again, only to find that while their lives have changed, their feelings for each other remain the same. Writer/director Eugene Ashe combines romance and music into a sweeping story that brings together changing times, a changing culture, and the true price of love.

Gilles (Nahuel Pérez Biscayart, 120 BPM, The Intruder) is arrested by SS soldiers alongside fellow Jews and sent to a camp in Germany. 

He narrowly avoids sudden execution by swearing to the guards that he is not Jewish, but Persian. This lie temporarily saves him, but Gilles gets assigned a life-or-death mission: to teach Farsi to Head of Camp Koch (Lars Eidinger, Personal Shopper, High Life), who dreams of opening a restaurant in Iran once the war is over. Through an ingenious trick, Gilles manages to survive by inventing words of "Farsi" every day and teaching them to Koch. 

The particular relationship between the two men sparks the jealousy of other prisoners and SS guards towards Gilles. And while the suspicions of Koch grow every day, Gilles understands that he will not be able to keep his secret forever… Anchored by two exceptional performances from its leads, Persian Lessons is a Holocaust survival tale offering a powerful testament on the need to preserve the names of the men, women and children who lost their lives in this dark period of human history.

REVIEW: Skylines / SKYLIN3S / Skyline 3 - New Trailer

Review by Jon Donnis
I was a fan of Skyline, I was an even bigger fan of Beyond Skyline, so much so that my review even made it on to official posters, so now the third film in the franchise has been released, and I am excited.

This film pretty much carries on where the last film finished, so if you haven't seen the previous film, go watch it now, it is great.

Now, in Beyond Skyline, the 1st half was SciFi horror and the 2nd half of the film was Kung Fu SciFi action, in Skylin3s, the film is back to being mainly a SciFi film, but that does not mean the action scenes are any less, there is still some great Kung Fu scenes, mainly towards the end of the film.

So to the film itself, basically there are now friendly alien hybrids (red eyes) living peacefully on Earth, unfortunately there is a virus spreading and it is slowly turning the aliens back to their original selves, so that would be evil (blue eyes). Earth Defense have a way to save the aliens, but need to travel to the alien's home world to collect the very thing that can save them. For this journey they need Captain Rose Corley, played by the gorgeous and talented Lindsey Morgan, who is now an outsider, they convince her to help and off we go.

I wont spoil any more of the plot itself don't worry.

The Good
Action packed, great fight scenes, and fun scifi. What more do you want?

The Bad
In these kinds of films we all know there will be a twist, and this one you will see a mile away, but it doesn't really affect the film or your enjoyment of it.

Overall
I thoroughly enjoyed the film, everything that a good scifi should be. Is it as good as Beyond Skyline? Not sure, but I will score this film a solid 8/10
