Trailer & Poster for the remake of Coppola’s ‘Dementia 13′

Directed by Richard LeMay (Blood Bound) Dementia 13 is a remake/redux/retelling of Francis Ford Coppola 1963’s original, which is notable for a) being one of Coppola’s early forays into directing; and b) being produced by Roger Corman.

This remake, which stars Julia Campanelli, Ana Isabelle, Marianne Noscheze, Channing Pickett, and Christian Ryan; and is written by Dan De Filippo (Shockwave Darkside) and Justin Smith (The Boy, Ominous), follows an old-money family still dealing with the death of its youngest daughter several years later…

While honoring the daughter’s death, a long con, an axe-wielding serial killer, and a vengeful ghost all coalesce in the same night to target the family. Everyone in the family has a secret, nobody wants to face what they did, and for someone to survive, the truth needs to come out – sooner than later.

Gravitas Ventures Takes U.S. Rights to ‘Drib’ From TrustNordisk (Exclusive)

Gravitas Ventures Takes U.S. Rights to ‘Drib’ From TrustNordisk (Exclusive)
TrustNordisk has sold “Drib,” Norwegian filmmaker Kristoffer Borgli’s stylish feature which played at South by Southwest, to California-based distributor Gravitas Ventures for U.S. distribution.

Shot in Oslo and Los Angeles, the movie marks the feature debut of Borgli, who gained critical acclaim with his short “Whateverest,” which was nominated for a Grand Jury Prize at the AFI Fest. It exposes media manipulation and sheds light on how art becomes commerce, and how something fake can have real effects.

Mixing fiction and documentary, “Drib” turns on Amir Asgharnejad, an Oslo-based comedian and prankster who almost became the face of an energy drink. It stars Brett Gelman (“Joshy”).

TrustNordisk has also sold “Drib” to Dd Dream International Media. The company previously sold the film to Latin America (California Filmes).

The deal was negotiated by Josh Spector on behalf of Gravitas.

In Latin America, “the fathers aren’t home,” Vigas said. “We grow up trying to find a father figure who will resolve our problems: Venezuela’s Chavez, Peron in Argentina.”

Cannes: Priyanka Chopra’s Purple Pebble Reveals Indian Regional Film Slate
Priyanka Chopra, Indian superstar and star of “Quantico,” has unveiled the debut Cannes slate of her Purple Pebble Pictures shingle.

The company, operated by Priyanka’s mother, Dr. Madhu Chopra, is pitching a trio of Indian regional films that could attract international finance, or eventually find their way to overseas festival berths.

Also on the lineup is “Nalini,” a fact-based drama about the first romance of Rabindranath Tagore, musician, revolutionary, poet and winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature. The picture will be shot in Bengali, Marathi and English. Another title is “Little Visitors” (aka “Pahuna”,) to be shot in Sikkimese.

Priyanka Chopra has long been interested in film production and previously attended project markets including Haf in Hong Kong.

Cannes Film Review: ‘A Ciambra’

Cannes Film Review: ‘A Ciambra’
Neo-realism isn’t necessarily a genre built for star turns, but director Jonas Carpignano happened upon one anyway in his debut “Mediterranea”: Then-preteen Pio Amato wasn’t the lead in that accomplished, affecting refugee drama, but his spiky, wily turn as a Romani artful dodger in the Calabrian coastal town of Gioia Tauro was a bright, skittering firework in its margins. It comes as no surprise, then, that Carpignano has placed Pio center-stage for his similarly empathetic follow-up “A Ciambra,” weaving the charismatic kid’s tough coming-of-age narrative into a broader study of poverty and racial prejudice on the fringes of Italian society.

With the presence of Martin Scorsese as an executive producer, this polished semi-sequel to “Mediterranea” — which extends the narratives of certain characters from that film, but is otherwise a freestanding work — will doubtless boost Carpignano’s already fast-rising profile on the festival and arthouse circuit. Creatively speaking,

Cannes Film Review: ‘Beauty and the Dogs’

Cannes Film Review: ‘Beauty and the Dogs’
A co-ed raped by cops is further traumatized by a society more prone to disdain and brutality than empathy in Kaouther Ben Hania’s “Beauty and the Dogs,” a film that boasts impressively fluid long takes yet comes up short in the script department. Taking such a powerful theme and then piling on every expected twist makes it feel like the director’s understandable outrage over similar, factual cases blurred her understanding of modulation — a surprise given the conceptual sophistication of her excellent mockumentary debut “Challat of Tunis.”

The callousness of (un)civil society, together with police repulsiveness, is a subject needing to be constantly re-examined, yet Ben Hania’s almost chilly mise-en-scène lessens the emotional impact of the protagonist’s truly nightmarish plight. Although multiple film funds and a high percentage of European backers are involved, no doubt lured by worthy issues and the director’s previous successes, sales

Cannes Film Review: ‘Sicilian Ghost Story’

In “Sicilian Ghost Story,” co-directors Fabio Grassadonia and Antonio Piazza’s superb follow-up to 2013’s Critics’ Week prizewinner “Salvo,” the duo evocatively interweave the richness of fairy tales with the obscenity of Mafia control. Based on the 1993 kidnapping of 12-year-old Giuseppe Di Matteo, held by the Mafia for 779 days in the hopes of silencing his informant father, the film invents a classmate with a crush who refuses to sweep Giuseppe’s disappearance under the rug. Her bond with the kidnapped boy, manifested through fairy tale symbols — a forest, a cave, animals, a lake — seamlessly dovetails with reality, drawing to the surface the anguish of a lost life together with the disgraceful fact that we as a society allow ourselves not to be haunted by acts of inhumanity. “Ghost Story” deserves a conspicuous place on international art-house screens.

Comparisons will be made with a host of other films using Brothers Grimm tropes,

Cannes Film Review: ‘They’

J (Rhys Fehrenbacher) is a Chicago teen struggling with gender identity in “They,” a film that, like its protagonist is a work of severe uncertainty. Caught between laid-back naturalism and aggravating affection, writer-director Anahita Ghazvinizadeh’s feature debut shows promise when simply coexisting with its many characters in easygoing situations. Those moments, however, are rare and fleeting, and can’t compensate for the filmmaker’s rambling storytelling and insistent aesthetic flourishes. Though its subject matter is timely and its sensitivity is palpable, the movie is far too airless and artificial to make much theatrical headway after its Cannes premiere.

Taking hormone blockers in order to delay the onset of puberty, the better to afford more time for contemplating whether to live an adult life as a male or a female, 14-year-old J — who chooses to be referred to by the pronoun “they” — lives in a state of suspended animation. If
