Film Night in the NOHO Arts District March 30, 2007

Film Night is a monthly presentation of films presented by IDEAS (Investigative Documentaries Educating American Society) in association with the International Student Film Festival Hollywood (ISFFH).  IDEAS mission is to educate American society on the most important social subjects facing America going into the 21st century.  ISFFH offers student filmmakers from all over the world a unique opportunity to gain the recognition of film industry leaders, create career development opportunities in their home countries and the U.S., and celebrate new artistic discoveries from all over the world. Film Night offers an insight to the work of fellow filmmakers with personal interaction, including a question and answer period after each film.

This month’s Film Night will be held in the NOHO Arts District on Friday, March 30, 2007 at 7:00 pm at The Hub Theater 5245 Lankershim Blvd. North Hollywood, CA 91601. Support our local filmmakers, admission is free!  We will be screening productions from ISELA along with a Ron Krauss film.

The Institute for Spiritual Entertainment Los Angeles (ISELA) is an up and coming community in Los Angeles. Their purpose is to promote the new genre of films called Spiritual Cinema/Transformational Media. ISELA's mission is to create and produce movies as well as other media that awaken the truth within us in order to inspire individual and social transformation. The idea is to ask such questions as "who are we?" and "why are we here?" provoking change toward higher consciousness and awareness. Our intent is to assist others in making films from their highest place while expressing their true selves.

ISELA's first production is called The Gentle Barn. It is an inspiring short based on a true story about an Alzheimer's patient named Thomas and how he is transformed when a Spiritual connection is made between him and the farm animals of The Gentle Barn. It is a shining example of how a professional production can be done in harmony with Spiritual values.

Angel Beach - Making a difference, one life at a time. Elizabeth, an extremely exhausted and burned out ER worker has three people, who were in her care, die in one day. After taking her problems out on her husband, she takes some very needed time off from work, hoping to fine a new perspective on life. On her trip to the ocean, she meets an old woman throwing fish into the water that had been left on shore during a storm in the middle of the night. Elizabeth asks the woman, "What difference does it make, they're all dead?" This old woman inspires Elizabeth to see her work and her life in a whole new way.

Puppies For Sale, a Ron Krauss film starring the late Jack Lemmon. It's a busy day along the city sidewalks as an elderly pet-shop owner hangs a sign, "Puppies For Sale." Later, he's in his back room when he hears the shop bell jingle signaling a customer has entered. It's a lad in a baseball cap inquiring about the puppies. Four puppies bound in behind their mom, followed by a lagging fifth one with a congenital hip problem. That's the puppy the boy chooses, and he puts some crumpled bills and loose coins on the counter as a down payment. The man tries to dissuade the boy from taking the imperfect pup, but the lad insists and gets down on the floor to play with his new pet. The owner gets a surprise - and a lesson.
