"Remember O Goddess"

Our hero was abandoned in the tallest apartment in Seoul, one of the largest cities in the world, finding himself unable to remember his identity and basic life skills. When he overcomes his fear of the outer world and finally pucks up to courage to go out, he discovers greater hope to find someone who remembers him than to restore his own memory. The film follows his quest to reconnect with a lost love.
 
"Growing Cities"
 
GROWING CITIES is a film about urban farming in America. Part roadtrip movie and part feel-good documentary, the film weaves together urban farmers’ stories in over 20 cities across the country, providing a window into the people who are transforming our communities one vacant city lot and backyard chicken coop at a time. In following the filmmakers' journey cross-country, viewers are prompted to re-imagine what's possible in cities and inspired to create GROWING CITIES of their own.
 
 
"Heart Child" is a documentary film about twenty-nine year old Crys Worley, who is the mother of a nine year old autistic child, Sasha. It is a remarkable story about a mother's struggles, not only with her own health, but the well being of her son. Committing to Sasha that she will never give up on him and inspired by the challenges parents of autistic children face, she started a non-profit organization, called A.Skate - Autism. Skating with Kids through Acceptance, Therapy, and Education. This film documents her extraordinary journey.
 
 
Dean lost his job, his house, and now is about to lose his wife to a deadly disease--deadly not just for her but for everyone around her. She has a type of cancer that makes her unable to control her anger and violent impulses! She's not alone. It's an epidemic that has struck the world.

Now it's up to Dean to pull his family together and find a cure for his wife through a regiment of psychological tests, strict dietary restrictions, forced meditation, intense physical activity and excruciating experiments, desperately hoping to turn her into the woman she once was.

    Nobody watched all four films before they voted. I am starting to not believe in online voting anymore. Growing cities is good, but do you really think it has a chance to stand against the other movies in Sundance film festival? (If it even gets there). Remember O Goddess actually had a big chance to take the Sundance film festival by storm, but no.. this is about how many people you know instead of how great the film is. There needs to be a documentary about shit like this.

  • AIDY | June 5, 2012 8:41 PM

    I agree with you Moc. I've seen all of the films and I totally agree with you. 'Growing Cities' is a good film, but it truly does not have 'what it takes' to appeal to the broader viewers or the scrutiny of the Sundance audience. I wholeheartedly supported 'Remember O' Goddess' because of its dynamics and its film's premise overall. Absolutely disappointed that 'Remember O' Goddess' did not win. It's always 'who you know' instead of 'what you know.' Congrats to 'Growing Cities' anyway.

  • Fish | June 4, 2012 11:50 PM

    I did and I think Growing Cities has a message that needs to be expanded to all major metros. As cities get bigger we lose farmland well now its time for Urban farmers to step up and help community involvement to help increase fresh produce available to all.

    Hi All - Andrew from Growing Cities here. Thanks everyone for voting and sharing! That was a close one! I want to wish the best of luck to the other films - each one looks amazing! Dan and I are very proud to be making a film about a national movement that has so much potential to reinvigorate our cities, our personal health, and so much more. We won't let you down!

    My reasons why I voted for Remember O Goddess http://mrfilmreviewer.blogspot.com/2012/05/remember-o-goddess.html

  • Carol Burns | June 3, 2012 6:36 PM

    This movie gives viewers a real life indept look of someones life who is alone in a this world as a stranger who feels isolated and scared until he discovers the one person who remembers him. The directors view and creativeness hits the vocal point in society today of being in a room full of people but still alone. Remeber O Goddess is a much need film for today's generation and will enlighten anyone who has struggled with the fear of being alone. A must see epic film!

  • Barbara Fish | June 2, 2012 9:32 PMReply

    Heart Child should be the winner!

  • Darlene | June 4, 2012 5:30 PM

    Heart Child really should be the winner! This is a devastating thing to happen to a family and more people should be aware of the struggles.

  • Kim | June 2, 2012 8:25 PMReply

    Growing cities all the way!!!

    Heart Child!!!!

  • Jenny | June 2, 2012 6:14 PMReply

    Heart Child! I think it really shows the uniqueness of Autism and how something like skateboarding can help autistic children improve dramatically. Heart Child can make a difference.

  • Dale | June 2, 2012 12:32 PMReply

    haha, does anyone think that if they comment here it will change someone's vote? just wondering ;)

  • Darlene | June 4, 2012 5:33 PM

    Probably not! Most folks are just like they are about who they vote for political office. They don't really know what they are doing. They pick someone that thrills them or that they think will make them a dollar.

  • Julie | June 2, 2012 11:15 AMReply

    Heartchild is important and a MUST SEE! You'll never look at skateboarding the same!

  • Jerry | June 2, 2012 9:15 AMReply

    Vote for Remember O goddess.
    I was impressed by the exotic image.
    Good luck.

  • P Marc Schwartz | June 2, 2012 7:44 AMReply

    Vote for Heartchild. The name alone is enough!

  • Hyun | June 2, 2012 2:01 AMReply

    Remember o goddess. Truly intriguing. Very smartly done.

  • Emily M | June 1, 2012 9:38 PMReply

    Impulse Control sounds sooo fun! I'm sure the other movies are great, but Impulse Control is probably the only one I'd pay my $14.50 to see at a theater... Got my vote for sure!

  • Crys. Worley from Heart Child | June 1, 2012 9:29 PMReply

    Just cast my vote for today! Thank you everyone for the support from near and far! Thank you to our Vans family across the world & fans of Askate! Hope that all of these films keep up with each other and follow up regardless of who wins this! We will all be in film festivals somewhere! For those who have friends or family affected by Autism, keep up with our Askate schedules on our website. Everything we do is free to participants in our clinics & we have 13 stops across the country we will soon be announcing... Take care everyone & good luck! -C

    Impulse Control has the best Story line & plot. This film will go far!

  • Fan | June 1, 2012 7:46 PMReply

    Impulse Control is the most amazing film here. VOTE FOR IT PEOPLE!!!

  • JW | June 1, 2012 7:30 PMReply

    Come on. Though every project more than deserves consultation with Sundance, winning in this voting will never guarantee the success of the movie or the filmmaker. If you have faith in particular film you'd better vote, and work on making others join you, rather than writing childish comments on competitor which will only harm the film you're supporting by making them look like sore losers.

  • Rufus Buford | June 1, 2012 8:51 PM

    there was nothing childish about what I said. as an adult male I'm entitled to post my opinion and I found the plot line and humor of O Goddess worn out and overplayed. Big deal. I posted a comment just like you. The two doc projects seem to have far more potential to me

  • Rufus Buford | June 1, 2012 4:37 PMReply

    don't understand all the fuss about O Goddess. first, its an idea thats been done 1000 times. second, if she has supporters all around the world and enough money to finish the film why does she need a consult with sundance? surely documentaries like Heart Child or Growing Cities deserve a distribution consult more... they have the power to inspire and change our society.

  • Martha | June 1, 2012 4:22 PMReply

    Keep it up growing cities! We believe..what an inspiring film!

  • Tan | June 1, 2012 3:24 PMReply

    Lots of support going to Heart Child from your Vans family! Stay tuned!

  • Simon | June 1, 2012 12:13 PMReply

    America is the land of opportunity. Impulse Control is like Rocky right now, the underdog, but it's going to go the distance!

    What an uplifting, beautiful story. HeartChild has our vote.

  • John B | June 1, 2012 9:50 AMReply

    Keep up the great work! Time to accentuate the positive. WAY too many destructive, depressing clips. My vote goes to "Growing Cities." I am biased though. I am the Assistant Director for a Teen Garden featured in the film. Still, keep it on the good foot!

  • AIDY P | June 1, 2012 9:02 AMReply

    'Remember O' Goddess' all the way!

    Remember O Goddess is truly amazing. Not only it has famous actors and actresses, the script is so beautiful. I watched the 25-minute preview and it brought tears to my eyes. If a movie brings tears to my eyes, it has my vote. The end.

Heart surgery, ongoing issues from it, a child with not only autism but a slew of other serious medical issues. Started an organization that went worldwide within 1 year... Amazing!! I saw the first 5minutes of the film on another website & I'm am hooked. She is such an amazing person to watch and I want to see more

  • Grimm | May 31, 2012 6:50 AMReply

    Impulse Control is the culmination of so many passionate and talented people, ideas and themes. It is the brainchild of three self-made graduates from The USC School of Cinematic Arts who have learned and practiced their craft in the industry, and it deserves its chance to shine.

  • Kieron Casey | May 31, 2012 5:37 AMReply

    These are an incredible bunch of films - fingers crossed for Remember O Goddess but good luck to all the others!

  • Pearl | May 31, 2012 4:50 AMReply

    Impulse Control is the movie to watch. It's message is very timely especially today when people are easily provoked to anger. Everyone who will watch this movie will certainly leave the theater a changed person.

  • Orion | May 31, 2012 4:29 AMReply

    While I'm sure all of these movies are valuable and made with utmost dedication, I voted for "Remember O Goddess". The short version was very captivating and I want to see more.
