The Vibes This silent short film – The Vibes; has been written and shot in the interest of emphasizing on the effects of the vibrations that we share and absorb or the assets or objects around us absorb from us and from others. We know that everything around us is made of pure energy and this energy vibrates thus forming frictions and connections and we term that as our gut-feelings and instincts; passing some messages to us; for us to be aware of, for us to try to understand something between the lines and makes us intuitive about situations and people around us. In the film two guys see each other from a distance; in a restaurant and they hesitate to open conversation with each other, because they have never met each other nor have they ever seen each other in their whole life or merely because culturally, ethically or rationally we don’t go and open random conversations with strangers; merely fearing a negative reciprocation. In the first half of the run time of the film, the viewers get to see something magical – After they see each other in the same pool side restaurant; the two guys get to share the same hotel room; leaving the viewers flabbergasted and confused of their uncanny closeness and yet the indifference in their behavior; even though they’re being seen in the same hotel room. It is only towards the end of the film, that the viewers come to know the twist in their closeness against the indifference and the magic lies within the check-in & check-out (watch very carefully). The very last scene of the film gives the viewers a probability of understanding; how the vibrations in the hotel room may have given the two guys the courage or the trigger to connect with each other and to attempt to open a conversation. The core message of the film is only to help the viewers understand the vitality, effect and the influence of these vibrations and what they can cause or effect in our lives, our hopes, our wants, our desires, and so on… The film is not focused on passing any message for or against any group, cast, clan, religion, belief, faith, orientation, nationality, or tribe. https://vimeo.com/387358161

Snow Babel In the middle of a dinner, words run fast from one point to another of the table. A serious and at the same time frivolous chatter made up of anecdotes, references, and assonances. Twelve women are gathered to commemorate a thirteenth, who no longer exists, but it is still there with them. They are women of different eras and different ages. Different in appearance, they share a language, a feeling and a mysterious intimacy. A black thread runs through their speeches. It is death, which in a serious, or irreverent, playful or threatening way makes sense to the things of life. It will be the arrival of a young waiter to reveal us that things are not as they seem, and women are not where they seem to be. And to show us what our women don't know they don’t know. https://vimeo.com/341597137

"Behind the Name SHAKESPEARE: Power, Lust, Scorn & Scandal" WHO CREATED THE GREATEST WORK OF IAMBIC THUNDER IN THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE? “Behind the Name SHAKESPEARE: Power, Lust, Scorn & Scandal” answers that question in this fun yet important film. It is a costume-filled journey into literary history’s greatest mystery: Who really wrote the works of Shakespeare? This charming documentary is clearly a labor of love, which one can feel in every scene. The world needs it and bravo to Christina di Marlo for doing it!" -- Don Rubin, Professor Emeritus, York University Editor, World Encyclopedia of Contemporary Theatre. VENICE FILM AWARDS REVIEW, 11/11/2020 "BEHIND THE NAME SHAKESPEARE is an extraordinary one-woman show/documentary. The exceptional Robin Phillips guides us through the exciting investigation about who is really behind the most important plays in the whole world and therefore behind the name of William Shakespeare… Robin Phillips puts all her talent as an author, actress, and storyteller, playing sort of comedian detective (a brilliant choice that makes us remain glued to the screen for the whole duration of the film) but contextualized in the era we are referring to. She transforms herself several times, she steps out and gets back into the narration with delicacy and without ever being out of tune. And as a consequence of this, it's not difficult to get involved in the typical atmosphere of the sixteenth century, also thanks to the beautiful costumes designed by Phillips herself, who also worked on the music ("Best Sound Design," Venice Film Awards) hairstyles, make-up, and artistic direction. The documentary is full of information, anecdotes, details, and spins around two centuries, between literature, history, and art. Despite being so full of news and quotes, you can easily follow it from start to finish. Not only without ever getting bored but remaining with bated breath in search of yet another proof that helps to agree with an increasing number of groups of people who support this extraordinarily beautiful and thrilling theory. It's difficult, after having seen it, not to want to join the chorus of voices of these artists, historians, writers, who claim that a glove maker's son could not have created what are among the greatest masterpieces of world theater literature. And that it's much more likely that it was the 17th Earl of Oxford, Edward de Vere, lover (to be reductive) of Queen Elizabeth, and an erudite and brilliant man of letters. Art Harman enriches the movie with his cinematography and his technical effects, which join the narrative moments in a fluid and coherent way .To quote Anna Rice, even within the documentary itself this is "very very interesting stuff", which could not tell this crazy part of history in a better way. I challenge the public not to fall in love with this story, with their protagonists, and with Robin Phillips in this delightful documentary film, which teaches and entertains, thus remaining faithful to the primary purpose of Elizabethan theater." https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QjaZu8Ry14U 1:39:00 United States https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LHY3uc7G0O4 Best Documentary Feature

Purgatopia A film six years in the making known as Purgatopia: where the antiquated clashes with the atypical. Purgatopia presents the world and its over abundance of information and ideologies as chaos. A radio show host and a twisted media mogul, are held to a mysterious force personified by an obscure being that is as omniscient as radiowaves. Purgatopia is a topsy-turvy world of flickering lights, crossed signals, and idealogical division mirroring the current struggles of the Information Age. The ‘telephone game’ of public opinion takes the form of a self-repeating formula that feeds back on itself to expose the illusive yet omniscient presence of the collective unconscious. https://vimeo.com/434531857 1:20:35 United States   Official Selection

“BILLYBALL” A two part script: 242 pages. “BILLYBALL” details the life and death of famed baseball player/manager Billy Martin. My script describes Billy’s incessant frantic activities during his life, from his many physical brawls (most of which he won) to his many disagreements with Yankees owner George Steinbrenner, his antics with his “pard”, The Mick (Mickey Mantle, heated love making and arguments with both wives, Lois and Jill, his terrible drinking episodes (including Christmas Day 1989 the day of his untimely death at age 61. “BILLYBALL” hits hard almost as hard as Billy hit his adversaries, from his acid tongue (very, very acidic) to his abrupt decisions to leave various management positions when criticized unfairly (in his mind). “BILLYBALL” should be shot in black and white for the first half of the script then should change over to color at the signing of the change of ownership to shipping magnate George Steinbrenner. “BILLYBALL” is not a baseball story, “BILLYBALL” is a true account of how alcohol abuse can ruin a good person’s life, as the preamble to Billy’s story explains before credits. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1m_LKVjC2XVnH-J8O_qCyeDsMp0iYWkcs/view?usp=sharing 242 Pages United States   Official Selection

MADE IN VENICE MADE IN VENICE is the inside story of the skateboarders of Venice, California (aka Dogtown) and the struggle to make the dream of a skatepark come true. This feature-length documentary film captures the firsthand stories and recollections of 40-plus years of skateboarding in Venice – the birthplace of modern skateboarding - that starts with the Z-Boys, and continues with its legendary street skaters, and the iconic Venice Skatepark. Never-before-seen Super-8 and early video footage, along with rare black and white stills, take you back to innovative demos on the Boardwalk and skating the walls of the Pavilion, as the Venice skaters pushed the boundaries of street skating and put it on the global map. MADE IN VENICE takes you on a rippin', shreddin' ride through the world of skateboarding in the second most visited tourist spot in SoCal, told by some of the most colorful characters you'll ever see on film. LONG VERSION SYNOPSIS: MADE IN VENICE is as close as you’ll come to the heartbeat of skateboarding, from its birthplace on the streets of Venice — aka “Dogtown”— to the local skateboarders who have held it up as “tradition” from the early ‘70s, and still do today. This is the documentary film that captures the firsthand stories and recollections of 40-plus years of skateboarding, from its birthplace Dogtown that started with the now-legendary Z-Boys, and continued with the street-wise skateboarders turning Pro in the 80s, to pioneering “street skating”, and to their heroic achievement – getting the Venice Beach Skatepark built. In candid and direct interviews, MADE IN VENICE captures the stories of the Venice legends and locals – counterculture characters who offer their insider’s look back at the early days of surviving the rough streets. They lived for skateboarding, and made it into a “lifestyle.” Never-before-seen Super-8 and early video footage, along with rare black and white stills, take you “back to the day” — from innovative demos on the Boardwalk to skating the walls of the Pavilion — as the Venice skaters pushed the boundaries of street- skating and put it on the global map. As you’ll see, when these guys skated the graffiti covered Venice Pavilion, it was all attitude — edgy, raw, dangerous, Punk Rock infused moves and speed. This was their unquestioned “Mecca” for skateboarding. Skaters came from all over the world to “ride” the Pavilion. In the year 2000, when a city improvement plan turned their beloved Pavilion into a pile of rubble, the skaters realized they had to band together to do what seemed impossible: To finally get a skateboard park in Venice. MADE IN VENICE documents the skaters’ challenges. How they had to trade fists for words to fight the battles at City Hall and get their points across. They created an official organization – the Venice Skate Association (VSA) – to gain respect. But there was still plenty of bull***t politics, secret meetings and special interest groups to stand up to throughout the struggle from concept to construction. Finally, the day arrived they had all been living for – the Venice Skatepark Dedication Day – one you’ll never forget after experiencing what’s possible. No matter what odds are stacked against you! World famous street-skate pioneer, Jesse Martinez, is featured in MADE IN VENICE, and was there every step of the way, from the dream, to the first shovel of dirt, to designing the park with a group of legendary Venice skaters, to his unforgettable speech on Dedication Day, surrounded by thousands of people from all over West Los Angeles who came to celebrate the new skatepark and the heroes who made it happen for the community. This is no ordinary skateboard story; it’s a “heroes’ journey,” featuring some of the most unlikely heroes you’ll ever meet… on film or in life. Because not only did the skateboarders of Venice dream of, believe in, design and build their skatepark, they can be found there today, cleaning off every speck of graffiti, and teaching world-class skateboarding tricks and techniques to the next generation — the Venice skateboard pros of the future. That’s what “community” means to the skateboarders of “Dogtown.” Tradition. MADE IN VENICE tells it like it is, authentic, right down to the grit and grind of the struggle, and awesome success, of the Venice skaters. This is the their story of how they got a multi-million dollar, world-class skatepark for their community - forever known as Dogtown and the birthplace of skateboarding - just steps away from the waves, right on Venice Beach. https://vimeo.com/ondemand/madeinvenice

Hunger Judah's world revolves entirely around dance. A disciplinary and somewhat monotonous life that absorbs you completely and keeps you apart from society. Rebekah will be her light, her exit door to the outside. Knowing her will lead Judah to her most animal part and to the search for her true self, giving free rein to her deepest appetites. After an intense rehearsal, Judah awakens an irremediable desire for Rebeca, her recent dance partner in the company where she works. Rebeca's insistence will lead them to a sentimental approach, this will lead to a much more intimate encounter between them. The excitement of the moment mixed with the smell of Rebekah will give free rein to a part of Judah that he himself did not know. Something would wake up inside him that remained hidden, a predator wanting Rebeca's flesh, to drag him to devour her like an animal. Such events will push Judah to search for that inner part, hitherto unknown, for a world of irremediable desire, irremediably addressing cannibalism. In his mind, the image of an animal that eats women will take shape. Judah's life will turn into night and day, into a double life that will share the world of dance that fills him so much, with the pursuit of pleasure by eating raw meat from his victims. After Judah's self-confirmation as the predator he is, having tasted raw meat, the reverse will seem unattainable. Javier, a new dancer from his dance company, will cross his path. Javier will get Judah to rethink his entire universe completely and get carried away by a feeling he had never experienced towards anyone. The doubts and desire about Javier, both sentimental and carnal, will lead our character to a state of catharsis, dragging Javier to the most irrational sacrifice. https://vimeo.com/206495405

RUN! RUN! is a queer, experimental, anti-war film. Production began in the summer of 2017, during Trump’s escalation of nuclear war and shortly after he announced his transgender military ban. While many mainstream LGBT organizations and their allies committed to fight against the trans military ban, RUN! is aligned with radical queer activists who have responded with critiques of the US military for their violence around the globe, destruction of the environment, and the trauma inflicted on service members and veterans. (https://queertranswarban.wordpress.com). RUN! includes three main components: footage from sites of nuclear development, detonation, industry, tourism, and activism in New Mexico and Vermont; a found-footage film on the lifecycle of houseflies; and a reenactment of Jack Smith’s 1969 drag performance as RoseKennedy in his film Song for Rent. Through layering and juxtapositions of these sections, RUN! examines how the interlocking ideologies of war and white supremacy structure landscapes, community rituals, cinematic technology, entomology, epidemic management, and even notions of LGBTQ liberation.
