It Hurts to Win

Elevator Pitch: After
their program is cut, the Boston University wrestling team grapples
through the adversity of its final season as a recognized program. With a
sport like wrestling, being such a tightly-knit community, the loss of a
program is much more than a small brief in the sports section; it’s the
loss of a passion. At the base of everything, this is an emotional
story of loss, brotherhood, and perseverance in the face of adversity.
It’s the story of a family facing certain extinction, and it redefines
the what it truly means to “win.”

Being George Clooney

Elevator Pitch: What
do a German actor, a Brazilian ER doctor, a Japanese man who studied to
be a lawyer, and an author of children’s books have in common? They are
some of the international dubbing voices of acclaimed actor George
Clooney. “Being George Clooney” is a feature length documentary that
delves into the creative, often humorous world of audio dubbing a
Hollywood motion picture. The story unfolds through interviews with
directors, producers, dubbing crews, and talented voice actors from
around the world. The film explores both the personal lives of these
voice artists and their lives as George Clooney’s “alter ego.”

Art and Craft

Elevator Pitch: ART
AND CRAFT follows prolific art forger Mark Landis at the very moment
his thirty-year ruse is exposed. What at first glance seems like a
generous act of philanthropy turns out to be one of the most widespread
and unusual cases of deception ever known in the art world.

Land of the Little People

Elevator Pitch:
Four young kids who live in a village of military officers families,
form a small gang. An old abandoned army base, located in the
surrounding fields, turns into their camp. A war begins and most men are
drafted. When the kids return to their camp they discover two soldiers
who deserted their units, using their camp as a hideout. Ruthless
struggle develops between the groups, and the soldiers, who sought
refuge from the war outside, find themselves in another war, which turns
to be as dangerous and bloody.

They all sound great, but I'm in for Being George Clooney. The psychology of an actor pretending to be another acting who is pretending to be someone else really makes you think about the importance of illusion in film-making. And seeing all the somewhat oddball guys who are George Clooneys in their own countries should prove rioutous.

It Hurts To Win looks like the only story up there with some real-life conviction. The two directors have done a great job putting together a project that means a lot in the lives of so many people – championing the story of this team with a doomed fate, while still keeping an emphasis on making it a visually stunning and stylistically unique piece. Vote "It Hurts To Win" !!!!

I like to be thrilled, shocked, provoked. It looks like "Land of the Little People" makes you think, wonder and scared all at the same time.
