Cannes: Directors’ Fortnight’s ‘Serpent’ For Films Boutique (Exclusive)

29 April 2015 4:46 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Taking an anticipated Cannes Latin American title off the table, prestige Germany-based art film distributor Films Boutique has acquired world sales rights to Directors’ Fortnight entry “Embrace of the Serpent.”

Directed by Ciro Guerra, “Serpent” marks the Colombian auteur’s follow-up to Cannes 2009 Un Certain Regard hit “The Wind Journeys.” Sold by Paris’ Elle Driver, “Journeys” sparked enthusiastic reviews and went on to bow commercially in 19 countries.

Disney will release “Serpent” in Colombia. Deal was struck by Gabor Greiner and Jean-Christophe Simon at Films Boutique and Cristina Gallego at Ciudad Lunar, who describes Guerra’s film as a “mystery adventure.”

“’Embrace of the Serpent’ is a very high-profile arthouse film with the rhythm and tension of classic adventure movies. The visually stunning black and white photography gives a new dimension to the representation of the ‘green inferno.’ The storyline may be set a century ago, but depicts the most current »

Ciudad Lunar Launches First English-language Trailer of Ciro Guerra’s ‘Embrace of the Serpent’

17 March 2015 2:39 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

An imposing still — the man, his habitat, the white man trailing behind — and an English-language trailer give more details of “Embrace of the Serpent,” the latest film from Colombia’s Ciro Guerra (“The Wind Journeys”). Now in post, “Serpent” will be released in Colombia this May by Colombia’s Disney distributor Cinecolor, producer Cristina Gallego said at the Cartagena Festival.

Inspired by the journals of the first explorers of the Colombian Amazon, Germany’s Theodor Koch-Grunberg and Harvard U’s Richard Evans Schultes, “Embrace of the Serpent” tells the epic story of the first contact, the encounter, approach, betrayal and, eventually, life-transcending friendship, between Karamakate, an Amazonian shaman, last survivor of his people, who has retreated alone to the deep jungle, and two scientists that, over the course of 40 years, search the Amazon for a sacred plant that can heal them.

‘Avenged’ (2013) Film Review

Reviewed by Jesse Miller

Avenged (2013) Review

Director: Michael S. Ojeda

Writers: Michael S. Ojeda, Deon van Rooyen (additional dialogue)

Stars: Amanda Adrienne, Tom Ardavany, Ronnie Gene Blevins

This is how it is: An attractive and deaf woman by the name of Zoe (Amanda Adrienne) is on a road trip to her boyfriend when she comes across a bunch of local yokels tormenting some Native Americans. Zoe does the valiant thing in trying to save their lives and in turn, gets captured and taken back to the local’s shack where she is repeatedly brutalized.

Yeah, it certainly sounds like your typical revenge horror-thriller, only it isn’t: Avenged takes a strange turn when our heroine is brutally killed, only to be brought back to life a few days later (expertly edited here to show the passage of time, by the way) by a local witch-doctor. The catch? She »

Interview: Michael Ojeda Talks Avenged (Exclusive)

4 March 2015 4:23 PM, PST | ShockYa | See recent ShockYa news »

Relentlessly pursuing your long sought-after dreams, no matter what physical and emotional challenges you may have to overcome in order to achieve those goals, is an admirable trait people possess as they seek fulfillment in their lives. Filmmaker Michael Ojeda admirably embraced the endurance of working multiple jobs on the set of his new action horror drama, ‘Avenged,’ including being the writer, director, cinematographer and editor, to enthrallingly create the alluring female protagonist for the film that he always imagined. In the process, the lead character grippingly overcame her despairs to admirably prove that not matter what confrontations people are forced to contend with, having unquestionable faith in their abilities  [ Read More ]

[Interview] Director Michael S. Ojeda Talks ‘Avenged’

4 March 2015 3:06 PM, PST | | See recent news »

Writer-director Michael S. Ojeda’s Avenged (formerly known as Savaged) is a feast of vengeance and he likes it that way. It takes the tried-and-true rape/revenge film and mixes it with the white-man scalping genre of Redsploitation (Native American revenge). The combination makes for one kinetically brutal thriller filled with heaps of graphic violence and sincere heart. Literally, a heart […] »

Avenged Review

3 March 2015 9:53 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Who knows why it took so long for Michael S. Ojeda’s spiritual remake of The Crow to hit wider audiences, but after two long years of festival screenings and showcases, Avenged (formerly Savaged) has become a valuable example of perseverance and gritty determination. It’s not often that I’m completely taken aback by visual brutality, but credit Ojeda with knocking each redemptive slaughter out of the park when it comes to confident, 80s-style effects work. You’ve got to admire a filmmaker who relies on good ol’ fashioned practical gooeyness whenever his violent vixen screams her wicked war cry, and Avenged showcases some of the most creative bodily chaos I’ve seen in a good while. It’s I Spit On Your Grave with a Native American twist – talk about reparations!

Amanda Adrienne stars as Zoe, a deaf woman en route to a new life with her patiently-waiting lover. »
