MELODY MAKERS tells the true story of the rise and fall of the most influential music publication in history. Melody Maker began as a weekly jazz musician’s trade paper in the 1920’s and by the 1960’s became an internationally recognized “must read” for rock n’ roll fans and musicians alike. Melody Maker magazine became a pop culture phenomenon and this was, to a great extent, due to its Chief Contributing Photographer, Barrie Wentzell (1965-1975) and his black and white photos that blistered across the front cover. MELODY MAKERS features candid interviews with the Melody Maker journalists, musicians and other subjects who worked behind the scenes who infuse the film with humour, and offer new insight about the cultural significance of the paper at a time when rock n’ roll was in its infancy and Melody Maker magazine was revered as the bible of rock n’ roll during this dynamic, formative and most controversial period in music history. Melody Makers features a rare classic rock photo archive to capture this unique period in music history when confidences were kept, and journalists and Barrie had unprecedented access - pre paparazzi - before the national press began picking in the idiosyncrasies of celebrity. Melody Makers is chock full of anecdotal stories and the true stories from behind pictures.

In the Northern Iraqi region known as Kurdistan, there are currently 2 million civilians who have been displaced by the terrorist regime, Daesh — better known to the World as ISIS. A world away, former army sergeant Richard Campos struggles in the aftermath of serving in an unpopular war. Managing that struggle, he has decided to pick up where politicians have left off. He must return to Iraq. Joining him is a Vietnam Veteran, a Gold Star father, a Muslim heart surgeon and a Catholic nun. Recruiting fellow heroes and humanitarians along the way, Campos will come to the aide of Syrian and Iraqi minorities, all while battling personal demons from years past -- and serving in the shadow of very present new ones. This is The Longest Road.

GHOST OF THE MOUNTAINS (2016) - A meditative film journey to Mongolia’s wilderness in search of the endangered snow leopard. A very rare photo of a snow leopard from northwestern Mongolia in 2014 starts a Danish-Italian research expedition. A team of researchers travel 8,000 kilometers into the remote national park Silkhem B. to place 50 camera traps to help examine how the snow leopard population is doing in the area. The documentary follows the expedition on the three-week journey through the national park’s icy mountain landscapes in search of a snapshot of the snow leopard. At the same time the film gives a realistic insight into scientific fieldwork and the researchers’ efforts to preserve one of the world’s most endangered species. The expedition reveals that the snow leopard status is far more critical than first thought, due to an increase of domestic animals and humans to the area. The film gives opportunity to reflect on the human role and its imprint on nature. If man and nature can’t coexist in one of the most desolate places on earth - where then? The film has been shown at Trento Film Festival 2016 in Italy and participates in the competition for best film at Bansko Mountain Film Festival in late 2016 in Bulgaria.

Why kill your own food? A new mindful generation of teens defy factory farming and turn to hunting as a way of connecting with the source of their sustenance. They are part of a new urban movement in the United States: locavore hunters. Nick, Alex and Ashlie leave behind their modern lives and embark on a journey that is foreign to their parents. To make a humane kill, these animal lovers confront tormenting ethics and their worst nightmares, partly to eat dinner, and partly to carve out their own identities in a world increasingly at odds with reality and nature.

Ultrarunner Karl Meltzer has dreamed of setting the speed record for completing the Appalachian Trail as long as he’s been running. Now Karl sets out for his third and final attempt to run the 2,189 miles from Maine to Georgia in less than 46 days, 8 hours, 6 min. A Feat that takes serious physical and mental stamina. Karl’s run was not a walk in the park — he suffered a few injuries and set backs that could have put the record in jeopardy. He fueled his body with a high fat and calorie diet, which sometimes included pizza, ice cream and beer. The film is a look at hiking culture and why people feel compelled to attempt it through the good and bad such as Karl’s record-breaking attempt. With an eclectic crew, including his father, his wife and his friend Eric, they challenged an endless grind through the country.

A DANGEROUS IDEA is a cautionary tale about the powerful current of biological determinism that has eroded the idea of equality throughout modern American history. It reveals how scientists and policy makers have promoted genetic pseudoscience to roll back gains on race, class, and gender equality based on the false idea that genes determine who we are and what we can achieve. Like no other film before it, A DANGEROUS IDEA maps the front lines in the battle for the soul of this country, as economic and ideological interests continue to use the gene myth to unravel the American Dream.

Point of No Return chronicles one of the most suspenseful and pioneering scientific adventure stories of the 21st century, following two pilots in their attempt to circumnavigate the globe in an airplane fueled exclusively by sunlight. Their mission: to prove the potential of clean technology and to inspire hearts and minds. To achieve their goal, they must push themselves and their team of engineers and meteorologists far beyond their limits.  Thirteen years ago, Bertrand Piccard and Andre Borschberg began building what many experts said was impossible: a solar-powered airplane capable of flying day and night. With the wingspan of a 747 jet and the weight of a car Solar Impulse is extremely fragile; high winds or turbulence can snap the wings in two. But the 26,000-mile journey tests more than their technology. In an unheated, unpressurized cockpit, the 5-day solo flight across the Pacific Ocean becomes a feat of endurance unlike any other in aviation history.  Technical failures, unplanned landings, and stormy weather put the entire mission in jeopardy and drain the spirits of the team. To succeed, both Piccard, a psychiatrist and balloonist, and Borschberg, an engineer and jet fighter pilot, must set aside their differences, and go against the advice of their engineers. Their gripping story sheds light on what it takes to attempt something truly groundbreaking and is testament to the tenacity of the human spirit.

This is the story of the men and women at the time of the German attack on Russia in1941. A small, lost unit of German soldiers is looking for shelter in a remote, snowy small village in the Ukraine. They got separated from their company during battle and now they are deep within enemy territory cut off from the German troops.The soldiers have to make a stop in the village in order to get provisions and transport so that they can join their troops again - maybe a very dangerous thing to do. HEAR THE SILENCE is a parable about the loss of innocence during times of war that results in brutal preventive actions. People get trapped in an unstoppable circle of violence.

A piggy pursuing dream in the big factory but in reality all efforts seemed powerless and even kill himself. The concept is inspired by the classic movies of the silent era, Metropolis and Modern Times. The title is coming from the song ‘Where have all the flowers gone?’. Original song uses the disappearing flowers, telling disappearing people in the war. Here is a symbol of piggy losing his mind in the city.

While visiting an aunt and uncle in the exotic countryside of Costa Rica, a young Southern belle from Alabama accepted a ride on the back of a motorcycle belonging to a charismatic local farmer — a ride that would propel her down narrow mountain roads and into history. First Lady of the Revolution is the remarkable story of Henrietta Boggs, who fell in love with a foreign land and the man destined to transform its identity. Her marriage to José “Don Pepe” Figueres in 1941 led to a decade-long journey through activism, exile, political upheaval and, ultimately, lasting progressive reforms. First Lady of the Revolution is not only a depiction of the momentous struggle to shape Costa Rica’s democratic identity; it’s also a portrayal of how a courageous woman escaped the confines of a traditional, sheltered existence to expand her horizons into a new world and live a life she never imagined.

In the thick of epidemic catastrophe, can architecture help to heal? Dr. Jean William Pape, a Haitian infectious disease specialist, believes it can. He has dedicated the last 35 years to combating diarrheal diseases that harm and kill his nation’s poor, and along side his colleagues at Les Centres Gheskio, has achieved remarkable improvements in community health in Haiti and beyond. On Jan 12, 2010 an earthquake rocked the capital of Port-au-Prince, killing over 150,000 people and all but destroying the city’s already weakened public infrastructure. Gheskio staff triaged and cared for thousands of injured and sick following the disaster using donated military cots and tents. Just nine months later, as the country was beginning to recover, Dr. Pape’s worst nightmare came true. An outbreak of cholera swept the city’s crowded neighborhoods and relief camps. Gheskio’s staff now braved a whole new challenge - how to combat one of the worst cholera outbreaks in over a century in a place with almost no sanitation infrastructure. On the front line of an international effort to stem the tide of an epidemic, Gheskio used every means at their disposal to combat the disease, including innovations like world’s first mid-outbreak cholera vaccination campaign. Asking what else could be done, Dr. Pape invited the architecture firm MASS Design Group to help address the underlying problems that had allowed such an outbreak to occur in the first-place.Together they envisioned a facility that would not only create a healthy and dignified environment for patients, but would act to disrupt the vicious cycle of infection taking place through the re-contamination of water by cholera waste. Moreover, it would be built by Haitians using locally available materials, maximizing its social and economic impact on the surrounding community.Design that Heals is an uplifting story about leadership, innovation, and human resilience. As the building comes together, it reveals a powerful statement of what seemingly disparate fields can accomplish when they work together. As Dr. Pape achieves remarkable victories over such a complex health issue through an integrated approach to health and wellness, viewers are prompted to ask - what more can we all do?

His main goal is to secure his daughter Azra’s future and to buy her a dress for prom, so far the most important day of her young life.
