Interviews

2067

Marina Antunes @ Quiet Earth

Father Leahy on the Quibi Series Benedict Men

Nell Minow @ Medium

  • Excerpt: You see in the series it gets rough at the end because of difficulties in giving up “what I want” for “what we need.” That’s the nature of community because if you live in community you’ve got to give up what you want for what the community needs; not easy to do and none of us can do it consistently.

Rick Rowley on “Kingdom of Silence”

Nell Minow @ Alliance of Women Film Journalists

  • Excerpt: To me, Jamal’s story is fascinating. It is both epic and also deeply personal. It twists together two things. It’s his personal story of transformation and redemption but he’s also the man who risked his life at the center of this whirlwind.

Festivals: General Coverage

Denver Film Festival – The Line-Up

Peter Nellhaus @ Coffee, Coffee and more Coffee

  • Excerpt: After dealing with the various uncertainties plus factoring current local health mandates, the Denver Film Festival will return, albeit totally virtual, and lower key.

Bloodthirsty

C.H. Newell @ Father Son Holy Gore

  • Excerpt: The view of monstrosity, from predators to artists, in Bloodthirsty is unforgettable.

Paper Spiders

Jeremy Kibler @

  • Excerpt: Though there may be more hard-hitting films about paranoia, “Paper Spiders” is more low-key and told on a human scale without any horror or hallucinatory tendencies.

The Queen of Black Magic

C.H. Newell @ Father Son Holy Gore

  • Excerpt: The Queen of Black Magic is a nasty ride to Hell.
