Elevator Pitch: Have you ever been in a relationship where you're comfortable, and nothing's WRONG, per se, but you wake up one day and think, "what the fuck am I doing with this person who I know I don't want to be with forever?" but then drag ass getting out of it because, maybe it's better than being alone after all? The Big Spoon is a modern (un)romantic comedy about that; think classic Woody Allen sensibilities mixed with Broad City-esque shenanigans and you've got our movie.
Elevator Pitch: Peter and John is written and directed by veteran filmmaker Jay Craven and stars Jacqueline Bisset and Christian Coulson. In the wake of the Civil War and the collapse of the whaling industry, Nantucket is in ruins. The Roland family is tested when one son receives a mysterious inheritance. Meanwhile, a strange woman arrives on the island, bringing with her a secret that threatens to destroy Peter’s reputation. An ambitious collaboration between Marlboro College and Kingdom County Productions, Peter and John provides film students the opportunity to work in important roles alongside experienced professionals.
Elevator Pitch: “The armed militants sent death threats to local musicians; many were forced into exile. Live music venues were shut down, and militants set fire to guitars and drumkits.” New York Times. And just like that, the very birth place of modern rhythm and blues suddenly became silent. Manny Ansar, director of the world-famous Music Festival in the Desert, narrowly escaped Timbuktu. Nearly one million Malians remain displaced. So Manny decided to lead a procession of traveling musicians from refugee camps back to their homes in Timbuktu, for a concert that will mark the beginning of a new era in Mali.
