PEPPER & BEYOND examines the twelve months (Aug

LOS ANGELES, CA (OCT., 2017) Executive produced by
Stephen Spielberg, the film tells the story of “Oscar,” who
was three years old at the time of the Dos Erres massacre,
during which Guatemalan government-led forces destroyed
a small indigenous village and killed off almost all of the
Villagers. The massacre was particularly brutal, and went
un-investigated until one of the soldiers involved, unable to
keep secret any longer, told the story of the atrocities
committed during the several days that the killings occurred.
Oscar was spared, in part because of his striking looks —
his pale skin and green eyes were prized features. He was
carried off by one of the soldiers responsible for the mass-
acre that killed Oscar’s family, and raised by the soldier’s
family. Oscar was too young to remember what went on
that day. He grew up thinking that the man who was raising
him was his father. More than 30 years after the events of
that day, Oscar would be approached by people looking into
the Dos Erres massacre, with the idea of bringing the per-
petrators to justice. The man who had raised Oscar had
died years before. The young man, now living in the United
States, was suddenly confronted with the truth that nothing
he thought he knew about his family was true. The man he
thought of as his father was a criminal.
LOS ANGELES, CA (OCT., 2017) It was 2009, Michael,
Allen and Ray were walking around Flushing, Queens.
They had just returned from a trip to Taiwan and were
looking for their favorite childhood drink: bubble tea. After
some searching, they found a tea place, ordered, and sat
down to discuss some of their new business ideas.
Meanwhile, they sipped at their teas and immediately put
their drinks down. They were confused, this was not the
bubble tea they had come to love in Taiwan. It was a
mediocre knockoff at best. As they looked around they saw
a long line full of thirsty customers. They looked up at each
other, that’s when Michael, Allen and Ray realized that they
had just found their new business venture.
It is our dream to introduce the Kung Fu Tea brand to con-
sumers all around the world, as well as creating a more re-
fined bubble tea culture. For this reason, we are looking for
business partners who might be interested in joining us.
With your help, we hope to expand our market even further.
We are thrilled to announce that we will be opening in
Canada this year! And more countries to come. Our cor-
porate headquarters are currently located in New York City.
We have business ventures in North America, Australia, and

LOS ANGELES, CA (OCT., 2017) Hollywood star Hedy
Lamarr (ZIEGFELD GIRL, SAMSON AND DELILAH) was
known as the world’s most beautiful woman – Snow
White and Cat Woman were both based on her iconic look.
However, her arresting looks and glamorous life stood in
the way of her being given the credit she deserved as an
ingenious inventor whose pioneering work helped re-
volutionize modern communication. Mislabeled as “just
another pretty face,” Hedy’s true legacy is that of a
technological trailblazer. She was an Austrian Jewish
emigre who invented a covert communication system to
try and help defeat the Nazis, then gave her patent to
the Navy, but was ignored and told to sell kisses for war
bonds instead. It was only towards the very end of her
life that tech pioneers discovered her concept which is
now used as the basis for secure WiFi, GPS and Blue-
tooth. Hedy never publicly talked about her life as an
inventor and so her family thought her story died when
she did. But in 2016, director Alexandra Dean and pro-
ducer Adam Haggiag unearthed four never-before-heard
audio tapes of Hedy speaking on the record about her
LOS ANGELES, CA (OCT., 2017) Maddman tells the

sentenced to prison because of his entanglement with
Jordan Belfort, the infamous Wolf of Wall Street, as re-
counted in the Martin Scorsese film. Ben Patterson offers
a candid look at how the colorful Madden rebuilt his empire
and his life following his release.

LAS VEGAS, NV (JAN., 2018) Sharif “The Lion” racks up
another victory after a 10 round Lightweight showdown
against Arturo Reyes, advancing Bogere’s record to 31-1
(20KO’s). Both fighters took the first few rounds to warm-
up, Bogere was patient, while Santos remained calm, sizing
Bogere up. Bogere kept a steady pace the entire fight
peppering jabs to Reyes body, constantly staying in po-
sition to strike. Going into the final round, Bogere picked
up the momentum, striking Reyes and pinning him against
the ropes enabling Bogere to land several jabs and com-
binations. “I am so thankful for this opportunity and getting
the victory. I am not 100% where I want to be, but I feel like
I am getting closer to where I need to be to get to that cham-
pionship level. This fight I felt stronger, faster, and it
showed in the ring,” says Bogere. “This fight I came in
heavier, which made it harder for me to move around like I
am used to,” Reyes said. “It was difficult for me to attack,
he was the better fighter tonight. Next time around, I have
to take camp more seriously and lose the weight so I don’t
have this issue again.” The always exciting, Las Vegas’
favorite Cameron Krael, headlined the co-main event vs.
