You can see another trailer and read reviews at http://www.kingpix.com/films/ shotgun/index.html

Los Angeles Times says... Morgan Neville and Harry Pallenberg's irreverent, insightful 'Shotgun Freeway' is surely one of the most ambitious documentaries on Los Angeles ever attempted..... - Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times

Hollywood Reporter thinks..... "A breezy, informative look at Los Angeles history and culture... the films angle and talkative, analytical interviewees stitch together a thought provoking portrait of a teaming metropolis unlike any other." - David Hunter, Hollywood Reporter

Before "L.A. Confidential", there was "Shotgun Freeway"-- the groundbreaking 1996 documentary about Los Angeles coming to grips with it's own history. Against a backdrop of never-before-seen archive footage on the L.A., Shotgun Freeway presents a diverse group of "Angelinos" who guide the film through their own past as well as the city's. We get crime scribe James Ellroy reliving his youth as a burglar, Actor/writer Buck Henry's tour of Hollywood fakery, Jazzman Buddy Collette's trip down Central Avenue, Historian Mike Davis' tour of LA's eventual Armageddon, and writer Joan Didion's take on LA's own ephemerality. From the Beaches to the Valley, "Shotgun Freeway" will show you a Los Angeles you never knew existed.

Directed by Morgan Neville & Harry Pallenberg

BONUS MATERIALS include Director's Commentary, The Lost Tim Leary Interview, and three rare promotional films: Hollywood 1931, LA Police Tour, The Free Way.

The movie My Flesh & Blood opened this weekend, and they need some
support at the box office, so if you have any interest in the movie,
please buy a ticket today!

They just won 2 awards at IDFA, 2 awards at Sundance, shortlisted for
the Academy and will probably get a nomination, and not only that
it's an incredible film that gets me choked up just reading the New
York Times review.

But all that may be eclipsed if they do poorly at the box office,
which would be bad news for all of us, so help get the word out, and
help get some people in the seats, today!


"In what has been called the year of the documentary, "My Flesh and
Blood" stands beside "Capturing the Friedmans" and "Fog of War" as an
unforgettable experience".
-Stephen Holden, NY Times

"My Flesh and Blood" etches and unforgettable portrait"
-Kevin Thomas, LA Times

"There's no denying that "My Flesh and Blood" is one of this year's
best documentaries and that the experiences of this family from
Fairfield will resonate with moviegoers from around the country.
***** Five Star Rating
-Jonathan Curiel, SF Chronicle

"You'd have to be a stone to not be affected by "My Flesh and Blood".

Australian Int. Documentary Conference 2004

Take the Journey to the Australian International Documentary
Conference 2004

Journey to where the sand and sea meet for one of the largest
recurrent screen industry conferences in Australia - the 2004
Australian International Documentary Conference (AIDC).

The 9th AIDC - hosted by ScreenWest - will run for three
inspirational and stimulating days from 26-28 February 2004 at The
Esplanade Hotel in the picturesque port city of Fremantle.

AIDC is expected to attract more than 600 national and international
delegates who will traverse a very practical program covering topics
such as film content, craft, contemporary theory, technology,
marketplace demands and future directions in documentary production.
Program highlights include:

· Refugees in the World The numbers grow each year, governments make
it harder for the refugee, and film makers to keep telling stories of
the individual who is the person behind the name - refugee. Do their
films make any difference?

· Documentaries - What's New? Are audiences really watching the same
TV show for 20 years? Has anything really changed in the TV guide
between 1984 and 2004? Is Steve Irwin a recycled Harry Butler?

· Different Ways of Measuring A single documentary can alter a
person's life forever. How do you measure that? A look at the impact
of some documentary programs on people's lives.

"Gripping!  A real- life thriller!"
           ;  -- David Chute, LA Weekly
 
Power Trip has been nominated for an
New York City at Film Forum, Dec 10-23,

Paul Devlin's award-winning film, Power Trip 
provides important context and unique insight
into today's headlines, with a graphic,
on-the-ground depiction of a society crippled by
corruption and the challenges facing globalization
of multinational companies in emerging markets.
 
Check out these stories in Filmmaker and indieWIR E
and look for upcoming stories about Power Trip in
Newsweek, The New York Times, and

MY KNEES WERE JUMPING; REMEMBERING THE
KINDERTRANSPORTS has just been released on dvd by IFC
and copies can be bought through Amazon.com

Melissa Hacker's documentary, My Knees Were Jumping:
Remembering the Kindertransports, is about the Jewish
children who were saved by emigrating to Britain (from Germany,
Austria, Poland and Czechoslovakia) 60 years ago. Since Ms.
Hacker is the daughter of one such emigre -- the costume
designer Ruth Morley, an Academy Award nominee for "The
Miracle Worker" -- she approaches her poignant subject matter
in a particularly earnest, intimate way. In this gentle
documentary, Ms. Hacker's mother and others who shared the
young refugees' experience speak at length about its impact...
-- Janet Maslin, The New York Times

Surviving participants vividly recall the excitement and the
downside of this "adventure".....These stories are
heart-rending....Editing weaves together talking-head interviews,
newsreel footage, old photos and other material to sketch
far-reaching psychological and historical reverberations. Tech
package is crisp and pro....
-- Dennis Harvey, Weekly Variety

Melissa Hacker's My Knees Were Jumping: Remembering the
Kindertransports narrates the trauma of history as a tragedy of
generational loss....Narration by Joanne Woodward is intercut
with Hacker's own personal reflections on the impact of the
Kindertransports on her mother and family....the film is not just
about her specific story; it is also about family and the legacy of
experience in the broadest sense.
-- Yosha Goldstein, Filmmaker Magazine feature
(Special Sundance issue)

MY KNEES WERE JUMPING was screened at the Sundance
Film Festival and many international film festivals, on PBS, on
Channel 4 in Britain, and named an "Outstanding Documentary"
by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences.
