HOLLYWOOD, CA (AUG., 2017) On 1st June, 1967 The
Beatles released their ground-breaking studio album, SGT.
PEPPER’S LONELY HEARTS CLUB BAND. Described by
Rolling Stone magazine as “The most important rock & roll
album ever made…”, it left an indelible mark on the 60s
and went on to become one of the biggest selling records
of all time.

IT WAS FIFTY YEARS AGO TODAY! THE BEATLES: SGT.
PEPPER & BEYOND examines the twelve months (Aug
1966 - Aug 1967) that would arguably be the most
crucial in the band’s career, a year in which they
stopped being the world’s number one touring band and
instead became the world’s most innovative recording

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
Canada.

LOS ANGELES, CA (OCT., 2017) Making a printable gun
landed Cody Wilson on the government’s watchlist.
Together with British programmer Amir Taaki, they
founded Dark Wallet, a Bitcoin app that allows its users
to “go dark.” But Dark Wallet was more than an app, it
was a way of expressing their ideals valuing human
freedoms over controlling governments. For crypto-
anarchists, ensuring freedom of information and
challenging economic structures are the best way to
hold truth to power. But taking on the government means
you don’t always get to go home.

In this observational diptych, Adam Lough glimpses
a rarified world, filled with embittered young people born
into a dreamless, corporatized, and deeply politicized
generation, where the only real resistance is at their
fingertips—the internet. The new radicals revel in
questioning every paradigm, from gun control to encryption,
even if it means incarceration. Yet the question remains:
Are they freedom fighters or criminals? This captivating
encounter examines how a distinct group came about ..

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
incredible life.

LOS ANGELES, CA (MARCH., 2018) Each year more than 3
million high school students take the SAT or ACT, the college
entrance exams required by most four-year colleges in the
United States. For decades, however, there have been
questions about exactly what these tests measure, what
role they play in the admissions process and how predictive
they are of academic success. The anxiety-provoking exams,
and the multibillion-dollar test-prep industry that has grown
up around them, have also become lightning rods in the on-
going national debate over equity in educational opportunity.

LOS ANGELES, CA (MARCH 2018)  The 1950's - the
iconic Scuderia Ferrari battle to stay on top in one of the
deadliest decades in motor racing history. Cars and drivers
were pushed to their limits, and the competition for the world
championship meant racing on a knife edge where one mis-
take could take a life. At the centre of it all was Enzo Ferrari,
a towering figure in motor racing who was driven to win at
any cost. Amidst the stiff competition within his Ferrari team,
two of its British stars, Peter Collins and Mike Hawthorn, put
friendship first and the championship second. Ferrari: Race
to Immortality tells the story of the loves and losses, triumphs
and tragedy of Ferrari's most celebrated drivers in an era
where they lived la dolce vita during the week and it was
win or die on any given Sunday.

Directed by Dawn Porter (GIDEON'S ARMY, TRAPPED)
Marking the 50th Anniversary of Robert F. Kennedy's
Historic 83-day Presidential Run Launches globally on
Netflix on April 27the following World Premiere at the 2018
Tribeca Film Festival on April 25th. EXECUTIVE PRO-
DUCERS: Laura Michalchyshyn, Dawn Porter, Gunnar
Dedio, Nestan Behrans, Dave Sirulnick, Justin Wilkes,
Jon Kamen.  Robert F. Kennedy's passion and vision
helped his brother John get elected president, sparked a
country's conscience, guided the nation through terrifying
crises, and inspired a generation. In the decade before his
assassination at age 42, as Attorney General, a United
States Senator, and a candidate for President, RFK also
riled the establishment as he sharpened his political
acumen, and challenged America to become the best ver-
sion of itself.  Told through rare and never-before-seen
Footage, this documentary examines the "Bobby
Phenomenon" of the 1960s and the continuing influence
of the man many see as the greatest loss of a troubling
and turbulent era.

LOS ANGELES, CA (MARCH 2018) An unprecedented
collaboration between Acropolis Cinema, the Locarno
Festival, and the Swiss Consulate General of Los Angeles,
the second Locarno Festival in Los Angeles comes to the
Downtown Independent cinema from April 5-8 with an ex-
panded four-day program following a successful first
edition in 2017. Writing for the Los Angeles Times, film
critic Justin Chang described the festival’s inaugural pro-
gram as “a jolting antidote to the mid-spring blockbuster
blues, as well as a welcome reminder that cinema isn't just
a global medium; at times, it can be downright otherworldly.”
Curated by Acropolis founder Jordan Cronk and co-artistic
director Robert Koehler, the festival's main program is com-
prised of a hand-selected group of films from the 70th
Locarno Festival’s Competition, Signs of Life, and Film-
makers of the Present programs, with fourteen features
and five short films, all Los Angeles premieres, represent-
ing no less than nineteen different countries…
