Mar Del Plata – A cohort of Latin America’s young high priests of horror – Uruguay’s Gustavo Hernandez, Argentina’s Adrian and Ramiro Garcia Bogliano and Daniel de la Vega, Mexico/L.A.’s Lemon Films, Colombia’s Rhayuela, Cuba’s 5th Avenue – will congregate for Ventana Sur’s Blood Window, which ranks, besides Austin’s Fantastic Market as one of Latin America’s two big Latin America genre jamborees.
Notably, Latin America’s modern genre build is an almost entirely 21st century phenomenon. None of the 21 directors featured at Blood Window in either its six-title Work in Progress or much larger Beyond the Window helmed a feature before 2000.

Three other Bwip titles, all from Mexico, – Adrian García Bogliano’s “Scherzo Diabólico,” Isaac Ezban’s “The Similar,” and Diego Cohen’s “Honeymoon,”- underscore Mexico’s rapid new build as a genre pic production hub.
But Ventana Sur’s Blood Window is part of a more general ramp-up of genre production across Latin America.
There was of course Latin American genre production of course before Ventana Sur. But the existence of a platform such as Blood Window, which also organizes a Latin American Fantasy Film showcase at Cannes, will boost production levels all the more, »

Chicago – The path to this year’s remake of the 1986 film “About Last Night” starts right here in Chicago, based on the original 1974 stage version, “Sexual Perversity in Chicago” by David Mamet. Two co-stars in the remake – Michael Ealy and Regina Hall – visited the source city to talk about their version.
After working mostly on stage in the late 1990s, Michael Ealy broke out in a big way (see the story below) in the popular “Barbershop” (2002). This led to steady work with roles in “2 Fast 2 Furious” (2003), “Never Die Alone” (2004) and the pivotal part as “Tea Cake” in the Oprah Winfrey produced 2005 TV movie of the classic novel “Their Eyes Were Watching God” by Zora Neal Hurston. Recently, he was featured in “Think Like a Man” (2012) and “Last Vegas” (2013). Ealy takes on the role of Danny in “About Last Night,” played in the 1986 version by Rob Lowe.
