GO FAR: The Christopher Rush Story

gofar (3)

SYNOPSISOfficial Movie Poster

GO FAR is a documentary about the life of Christopher Rush, an amazingly inspirational human being who was born with muscular dystrophy (http://mda.org/disease/sma1.html). Rather than give up, he defied every expectation and lived a life full of happiness, optimism, and endless accomplishments that most able-bodied people would be proud of. Despite having been diagnosed with a life expectancy of two years, he lived until shortly before his 31st birthday.

During his last few months Chris developed an inspirational program called GO FAR (Goals, Obstacles, Focus, Act, Review) that he planned to teach to others who were disabled, troubled youth, and anyone else who needed encouragement and a better path to reaching their goals, regardless of the obstacles. This documentary will serve as his legacy, a message of enduring optimism and hope.

GO FAR is available for instant streaming on www.GoFarMovie.com through YEKRA.

Would You Rather -Completed

would-you-rather-alt-posterSYNOPSIS

Desperate to help her ailing brother, a young woman agrees to compete in a deadly game of Would You Rather, hosted by a sadistic aristocrat…

WOULD YOU RATHER, now on HBO, is a psychological thriller that explores economic inequality, the potential consequences of Social Darwinism, and power games. The film has been compared by critics to a less controversial version of Pasolini’s SALO, or a current reality version of  HUNGER GAMES. Other critics have described the movie as a “financial morality play with spirit and wit” — one that is “guaranteed to rile up even the most jaded viewer,” while presenting a “portrait of human nature as it is faced with a cold reality of choice and survival.”

“A bloody rare turn at classic murder mystery…”
-Rex Reed, New York Observer

Alyce -Completed

featured-image-alyce

alyce-alt-posterSYNOPSIS

Somewhere between a crack-addled ‘Alice in Wonderland’ and a modern vision of ‘Taxi Driver’, ‘Alyce’ runs riot as a gritty psychological thriller set against the backdrop of Echo Park, Los Angeles’ pinnacle of urban hipster culture.

After accidentally causing her best friends horrific death, Alyce is haunted by guilt and delves into a brutal nightmare wonderland of sex, drugs and violence, her mind tearing itself apart… Along with anyone else who gets in her way.

ALYCE KILLS serves as an antidote to Generation X and Y movies that tend to either celebrate young “slackers” as heroic anti-heroes, or portray them as stereotypical oppressed victims. Comparing the film to Polanksi’s REPULSION, Slant magazine glowingly reviewed ALYCE KILLS as a “parody of unearned self-entitlement, of people who feel tricked into a lifestyle they refuse to challenge for the comforts it still offers.” Critic Chuck Bowen went on to note that the film “coaxes out the anger that is latent in the prototypical middle-class arrangement, allowing worker-bee frustration to manifest itself as a palpable cloud of madness…. Alyce is clearly a blossoming psychopath from minute one, but no one notices because they’re too busy tending to their own relentless self-regard.”

Variety listed ALYCE KILLS as one of “15 Scariest Halloween Horrors” and noted Actress Jade Dornfeld’s “tour de force performance as the guilt ridden title character. Her descent into a maelstrom of drugs, sex and psychotic violence is equal parts twisted and tragic…. ‘Alyce Kills’ is a challenging and original work of avant-garde horror.”
