CRUCIBLE OF WAR, made by D-Worders Leon Gerskovic and Erica Ginsberg
will premiere in Los Angeles this weekend. We'll be there, so feel
free to introduce yourself after either of the screenings...

**********************************

Veterans questioning why they fought. A middle class family trying in
vain to maintain their lifestyle in spite of economic hard times.
Ordinary individuals dealing with fear after acts of violence they
never envisioned could happen to them. We have a lot to learn from
the people of the Balkans. A new film, CRUCIBLE OF WAR, will tell
their stories when it makes its U.S. premiere at the Egyptian Theater
in Hollywood this coming weekend.

CRUCIBLE OF WAR focuses on ordinary people in Bosnia, Croatia, and
Serbia who have survived war, violence, ethnic hatred, and
displacement and are now working to rebuild their lives and
communities. The film's director, Leon Gerskovic is one of those
survivors. Gerskovic will be in town to attend the screenings of the
film, which is being shown in a program of the Artivist Film Festival.

WHEN?

'Other People's Pictures,' set in New York City's Chelsea Flea
Market, showcases nine photography collectors who share an
unlikely addiction - vintage snapshots that have been lost,

comb the market, ready to pay anywhere from a few cents to
hundreds of dollars for a single snapshot, they reveal the

SEEKING AGGRESSIVE DISTRIBUTION AND BROADCAST--

Mystic Voices LLC seeks knowledgeable, experienced
person/distributor, representative or agency to help distribute and
obtain broadcast of new documentary Mystic Voices: The Story of the
Pequot War.

What led to the first declared war in American history, waged against
Native Americans? Why has the seldom talked-about massacre not been
broadly presented before Mystic Voices? Why are there so many
differing accounts of this early and brutal event in American history?

Missituck, Connecticut, 1637: In the last hours of moonlight,
Puritans surround a Pequot village wielding swords, torches and guns;
they kill 400-700 men, women and children in one hour. Seldom told,
the 'victory' over the 'heathens' formed Colonial-American Indian
policy for three centuries across America.

The only film on this tragedy presenting viewpoints of historians AND
Native American descendants. Mystic Voices allows participants both
living and dead to speak via their first hand accounts and oral
history, through reenactments and commentary, artwork and music.
Of possible interest for viewers interested in history, anthropology,
sociology, visual anthropology, oral history, religious studies,
Puritan and Native American literature, Indigenous studies, military
studies, archaeology.

"If you're the relentlessly honest type,
this is probably the program for you."
- Washington City Paper

WHAT? Docs in Progress will be featuring two works in progress by
DC filmmakers Rebecca Kingsley and Rouane Itani at our monthly
feedback workshop.

WHO? You and anybody else who likes to offer their two cents on films.

WHEN? Tuesday, June 8 at 7:30 pm

WHERE? The Warehouse Theater (1021 Seventh Street, NW in Washington
DC/across from the new convention center/just a few blocks from the
Gallery Place or Mt. Vernon Square Metro Stations/food and drink on
site)

HOW MUCH? $5 at the door. When's the last time you paid $5 to see
two films?

WHY? You'll be supporting the local documentary scene, networking with
your peers, helping fellow filmmakers, and checking out what's it all
about for your own possible future screening at Docs in Progress.

MORE ON THE FILMS:

DAUGHTERS of THE LEVANT - Rouane Itani (30 minutes)
Women have often been at the forefront of immigrant families and
Arab-American women are no exception. This film traces the stories of
Lebanese and Syrian women immigrants to the United States who settled
with their families in cities and small towns across the country and
emerged as entrepreneurs, artists, and activists in their new
communities.

THE LAST COLONY - Rebecca Kingsley (20 minute excerpt)
In Washington DC, the capital of the world's best known democracy,
local citizens continue to be denied political rights that other
Americans take for granted -- the right to be governed by their own
locally-elected leaders rather than by the U.S. Congress. This film
looks at the history of Washington DC's unique relationship with the
federal government and its impact on the city's residents.

TREMBLING BEFORE G-D

A FILM BY SANDI SIMCHA DUBOWSKI


See this powerful & unforgettable documentary at The Village
Temple. Meet special guest, Israel Fishman, who is featured in
the film and will be joining us for an after-film discussion. There

Date:        Thursday, June 17, 2004

Trembling Before G-d is an unprecedented feature documentary
that shatters assumptions about faith, sexuality, and religious
fundamentalism. Built around intimately-told personal stories of
Hasidic and Orthodox Jews who are gay or lesbian, the film
portrays a group of people who face a profound dilemma - how
to reconcile their passionate love of Judaism and the Divine with
the drastic Biblical prohibitions that forbid homosexuality. As the
film unfolds, we meet a range of complex individuals - some
hidden, some out - from the world's first openly gay Orthodox
rabbi to closeted, married Hasidic gays and lesbians to those
abandoned by religious families to Orthodox lesbian high-school
sweethearts.

Vividly shot with a courageous few over five years in Brooklyn,
Jerusalem, Los Angeles, London, Miami, and San Francisco,
Trembling Before G-d is an international project with global
implications that strikes at the meaning of religious identity and
tradition in a modern world. For the first time, this issue has
become a live, public debate in Orthodox circles, and the film is
both witness and catalyst to this historic moment. What emerges
is a loving and fearless testament to faith and survival and the
universal struggle to belong.

We'll be doing an interesting panel before that screening with filmmakers and subjects from another film, and two of our boys will be here from the Middle East, so come check us out.

NYC (August 8), seeking absolutely great editor to wrap up a feature doc...

I'm approaching the home stretch of editing on a feature documentary
about Gypsy musicians around the world. The unsophisticated but efficient
way to describe it is that it's a kind of, 'Romani Vista Social Club'. It's got
stunning footage (Al Maysles.. concert film and scenes from Spain, Macedonia,
Romania & India). Great people. Good stories. Set for worldwide theatrical
with a prestigious sales agent. Presold to PBS. etc...

It also has an overwhelmed director. Me. Hence the suggestion of working
with an editor to complete the film. Interviewing people now to find
the perfect fit... Please call/e-mail ASAP.

master scenes as well as a detaileld shooting script. It's gonna
involve part narrative (on 35mm) and the bigger chunk, the actual
documentary, (on HD).

I'm up for a grant but I know that a budget breakdown would
strengthen my proposal.

My question is can anyone assist me in a list of all elements that
you might think I should include in my breadown as small as they may
seem- minimum crew requirements, equipment, other logistics. My only
exprience is shootign independent shorts on 16mm.

This is to all, especially producers, who can relate to the plight of
an aspiring filmmaker and don't mind sharing breakdown

The Educational Video Center
Media Literacy Violence Prevention Project Internships
Working with NYC High School Students

The Educational Video Center and Satellite Academy High School are
offering internships and independent study classes working with high
school students in the following activities in the Fall 2004 and
possibly the Spring 2005 semesters: video and web page production;
facilitating internet student discussions between school sites;
facilitating classroom discussions and activities related to media
analysis, violence in the media, violence in our society, and
alternatives to violence; facilitating classroom discussions and
responding to the viewing of student media productions.

The Educational Video Center and Satellite Academy High School
Project seek undergraduate and graduate students to do internships
and independent study courses working in NYC high school classes
facilitating high school students with video projects, web page
production, media analysis, critical viewing of each other’s tapes
and internet bulletin board discussions during the Fall 2004 semester
and possibly the Spring 2005 semester. The project, called the Media
Literacy Violence Prevention Project, explores themes related to
violence, alternatives to violence, media critique, and violence in
the media, and is a collaboration between Satellite Academy High
School, the Educational Video Center and New York University’s Media
Ecology Program of the Department of Culture and Communication.

High school students at the four different sites of Satellite Academy
High School (one site in the Bronx, one site in Queens, and two sites
in Manhattan) will explore the role of violence in their own lives
and communities as well as alternatives to violence; will learn
to “read” or critically analyze mainstream media that bombards them
with images and messages twenty-four hours a day; and will critique
the role of violence in the media (i.e. television, movies, music,
video, computer games, video games, etc). Additionally, students
will produce media that promote alternative messages. They will also
communicate with students from other Satellite sites about their
learning and their projects via “blackboard,” an electronic bulletin
board for internet conversations linked to the project’s website.

This is a wonderful opportunity for undergraduate and graduate
students interested in any or all of the following: working with high
school students, teaching media production, media analysis, violence
in the media, facilitating activities and discussions about community
violence and alternatives to violence.

Experience in video and web page production preferred but not
necessary.

DIGITAL CINEMATOGRAPHY/DOCUMENTARY CAMERAWORK course offered at the
New School this fall

4 session(s). Four Fridays, 10:00 AM - 6:00 PM, October 1-22, 2004,
New York City.

With small digital cameras now accessible to almost everyone, what
skills does the videomaker need to capture engaging, artful, and
technically sound documentary footage? This intensive workshop
teaches the basics of digital cinematography for the documentary,
with emphasis on how each frame must tell the story. Taught by D-word
member, documentary director and DP Cynthia Wade
(www.cynthiawade.com), students learn "hands-on" how to improve
dramatically their video images. Topics include learning to see
cinematically, using natural and added light, when and why to stay
away from automatic settings, special effects with filters/gels and
other fun tricks of the trade, and simple guidelines to follow so
that you will get all the shots you need for editing.

Special attention will be given to the challenge of simultaneously
shooting and directing the documentary, particularly as a one-person
or two-person crew. Students must have their own camcorders, which
they must bring to class.
