Daisy Brown is a 13 year old girl who has a strange medical condition: her teeth won’t stop growing. Mortified by her illness, she has the dentist file her teeth
down to maintain a normal appearance. But despite her best efforts, the
word gets out. The school bully is thrilled with this juicy morsel of
information and uses it to embarrass Daisy in the most painful act of
harassment yet.

“The Ocean Does Not Care”

Americans travel to Mexico more than any
other country in the world, because it’s close, warm, and most
importantly, cheap–relative low wages make it affordable for families
and spring-breakers looking for an “all-inclusive” getaway. THE OCEAN
DOES NOT CARE explores how local communities develop around tourist
economies, in places like Cabo San Lucas, where the government has spent
millions remodeling its marina for tourists even as many locals live in
makeshift neighborhoods without electricity or water, or Cancun, where
few of its six million annual visitors ever venture into the crumbling
city of 700,000. 

“Chessboxing: The King’s Discipline”

Chess and boxing – together at last. The W.T.F. factor of such an
unlikely combination has made it an easy target for satire on shows like
The Colbert Report or as fluff-piece fodder at the end of the nightly
news, but to the man who invented it, chessboxing represents nothing
less than the pinnacle of sport – an ultimate test of body and mind.
Taking you to London, Berlin, LA and beyond, Chessboxing: The King’s
Discipline will tell the story of this man’s struggle to transform his
sport from underground cult curiosity into a respected and recognized
mainstream phenomenon.

“Come and Get Your Love”

With only a few dollars to their name, best friends Stan and Beasley
embark on a journey by foot across the length of Manhattan on a night
filled with the promise of personal liberation, romance and
enlightenment. Trekking through the city’s colorful maze of people and
buildings, they make their way downtown where they meet two young women
who will challenge their plans for the future, their notion of love, and
even their friendship, making this a trip they won’t soon forget.


Gumshoe detective Darius Lefaux is summoned to the scene of a murder to
view the body…his own body. Memories begin to haunt Darius and as the
plot thickens, duplicates of him emerge. In a race against time, Darius
sets out to find the murderous version of himself before it finds him.

In a dazzling narrative told with the textural richness and depth of
art-house cinema, the best elements of pulp science fiction, and the
scope of a Hollywood action-thriller, “Omphalos” follows in the
footsteps of Darren Aronofsky’s indie classic “Pi,” with a bit of
Christopher Nolan’s deliciously entertaining “Inception.”
