Here is a brief synopsis from Single Tree Productions
Working at a movie theater is fun, and that’s why Mason, Dennis, and Gabe have done it for years. But, years of neglecting the world outside the theater are finally catching up to them. Now, they have to make a decision; start on the long, hard path to maturity or stay at the theater, where they can avoid customers, screw with customers, and eat as much popcorn as they desire.
Take a look at the trailer below…
Tribeca Film Festival – Hysteria
Hysteria is set in the 19th Century in London and stars Hugh Dancy and Maggie Gyllenhaal. The film follows the the life of a young doctor and an accident that led to him inventing the electro-mechanical vibrator. The indie film is being directed by Tanya Wexler and written by Jonah Lisa Dyer and Stephen Dyer.
The film will be “Spotlighted” at the Tribeca Film Festival April 18-29 in lower Manhattan.
South by Southwest – Bay Of All Saints
Bay of All Saints by Annie Eastman follows a group of impoverished Brazilian residents in the well-known “Baia De Todos Os Santos” in the state of “Bahia” in Brazil. The families live in “palafitas,” shacks built on stilts over the ocean bay, which causes the government to reclaim this area for ecological restoration. These families are at risk of losing their homes but will have to rise to fight for their future.
