Directed by Antoine Fuqua, Southpaw (2015) is an emotionally-charged drama about Junior Middleweight Boxing Champion Billy Hope (Jake Gyllenhaal), whose professional win column sits at 43-0, despite that his last fight went right down to the wire. As impressive as his career has been, his wife Maureen (Rachel McAdams) begs him to take a break so his body can recover and he can spend more time with his daughter Leila (Oona Laurence). Meanwhile, his nemesis Miguel Escobar (Miguel Gomez), a fellow boxer he hasn’t fought yet, surrounded by his shady entourage, eggs on Billy’s predictable fiery temper at a charity function. A scuffle ensues, Maureen is shot and dies.

Southpaw may be Jake Gyllenhaal's best movie to date. This gripping and emotional boxing drama is also a lesson in hope and redemption.

The 1953 black and white classic From Here to Eternity won best picture among its eight Academy Awards. Daniel Taradash wrote the screenplay and it was produced by Bobby Adler.

The story is about a group of soldiers in Hawaii at the cusp of World War II. Robert E. Lee Prewitt (Montgomery Clift) was well-known for his boxing skills. Captain Dana Holmes (Phil Ober) looks forward to him being transferred into his unit and thinks about how well they’ll now do in competition. However, when Prewitt tells him he doesn’t want to box anymore, Holmes does not take it well and orders his men to make life difficult for their new soldier-mate in order to convince him otherwise. Sergeant Milton Warden is sympathetic to Prewitt’s plight but has his own ax to grind when he falls for the Captain’s wife Karen (Deborah Kerr).

Kill the Messenger (2014) is based on the true story of newspaper reporter Gary Webb (Jeremy Renner), who uncovered the CIA’s guns for drugs program in the 1990s, which ultimately became known as the Iran/Contra scandal.  The money raised from selling cocaine in United States ghettos was used to fund the transactions. Marine Lieutenant Colonel Oliver North was a key player who was ultimately prosecuted for his role of using the cash from cocaine sales to move weapons to Iran and fund the Nicaraguan Contras rebel army.

Webb believed in due process but found out that some actions were above the law, especially when it came to government secrets. The story grew too hot, and with his newspaper succumbing to the pressure, it was Webb who ended up on trial.

Thomas Chapin, Night Bird Song has been invited to screen at the #MontereyJazzFestival on Sunday, Sept. 18 at 4:30 pm at the MJF's Jazz Theater. 

JUST OFFICIALLY ANNOUNCED BY THE MONTEREY JAZZ FESTIVAL: "Thomas Chapin and his trio were booked to play MJF the summer of 1997. Chapin, at his pinnacle and still climbing, sadly cancelled after learning he was stricken with leukemia. He died in February 1998. Now, through the film, Thomas Chapin will make it to the MJF and will 'play' almost 20 years later."  Full circle! 

The film's first Canada and first #internationalscreening is set for Saturday, April 30 at 8 p.m. in #Edmonton at #YardbirdSuite.

After Yardbird, the film is off to Europe to screen at the Nice International Film Festival on May 9 (nominated for a Best Story award) and to the #Cannes film market to seek international and Europe distribution. 

We finished the film in January and are already having great success with rave reviews --   "inspiring"..."a masterpiece"..."a coup and tour de force"... "a must see."  Audiences say, "masterful and beautiful work", "a breathtaking film".
