The Global Film Village: SHOWEST 2009 REPORT by Marla Lewin

user hosted the "The Future of Cinema" panel at Cannes 2008 and now we look at the practical side of "The Future of Cinema" at Showest 2009 in Las Vegas.  This was a very different Showest from previous years. Everywhere you looked the emphasis was on Digital Cinema and 3D. The major studios were not as front and center as in previous years. Disney and Sony showed their product reels of upcoming films in theatres. Paramount's trailers showed at their Dinner event spons...

Big Mike Craft and The Saratoga, New York Film Festival

Happy Easter to all of the patrons and members. May the glory of Easter be with you all. I am writting this announcement to say that Frank Sinatra Jr., Wayne Newton and Dianna Ross have not gotten back to our booking agent, as of yet. A movie takes 90 days to set up completely, in UpState New York. If the Stars whoI wish to appear, don't get in touch with Tony Cee Associates soon, I will have to postpone the flick. I am setting up the Saratoga Film Festival now, and that is easy. ...

Beyond history

   As I told you before "Sean penn's Puzzle" tries to make a conversation with an absent soul. The movie goes beyond history...all of its historical shots are the visual-cells of a creative mind who wants to discover himself by a kind of improvization through history. this movie is surreal, fun and reminds me Zhigavertov and Alain Renais at the same time.(Jose Alvarez )

History's Chaos

Seeing "Sean Penn's Puzzle" without considering history as a chaotic phenomenon is an absurd work. The shots of Rosa Parks, Emma Goldman,JFK,Martin Luther King,etc as the leading roles of modern soceity, beside Mossadegh and Takhti,etc, makes a mosaic of history that needs interpretations to get its signs and symbols. (Edward Mckee)

Sean Penn's Puzzle

 This film is challenging our looking style to  story-telling, plot, and classical portrait of actors,etc. It's very exotic and ofcourse a tribute to Sean penn. ( Edward Mckee)

Sean Penn's Puzzle

  The movie's gonna make a kind of conversation with Sean Penn. It's not a tribute to him. It's about a creative absent soul, who's gonna find a friend , a half of his lost soul , through an odyssey. ( Jose Alvarez )

Sean penn's Puzzle

   Neither native nor naive, the movie wants to be a modern syntax, a symbolic combination of the strange pictures could be interpret personally by the spectators, at the age of globalization. ( Jean claude Serra)

Sean Penn Puzzl

   "Sean Penn's Puzzle" is not a plain docudrama. It should be seen many times to understand completely. The film is challenging our looking style to  story-telling, plot, and classical portrait of actors,etc. It's very exotic and ofcourse a tribute to Sean penn. ( Edward Mckee)
