          The film treats The Hermitage as a living being. It tells the story of the daily life of the museum today continuously leaving the here and now to retrace two and a half centuries. A wonderful complex of buildings with the largest collection of paintings in the world. St. Petersb...urg and the Hermitage were a meeting point for foreign artists, architects and intellectuals creating connections through art and culture. The history of the museum is marked by the acquisitions of the enlightened Empress Catherine II, whose personality has continued to fascinate art historians and critics over the centuries. Toni Servillo leads us on this journey through cultural bridges between places and distant civilizations. Bridges form a symbolic visual element, that will be repeated in the narrative.

          Laurel Canyon, a feature-length documentary that pulls back the curtain on the mythical world of Laurel Canyon in Los Angeles, providing an up-close look at the lives of the musicians who inhabited it. Through a wealth of rare and newly unearthed footage and audio recordings, the... documentary will feature an intimate portrait of the artists who created a music revolution that would change popular culture. Directed by Alison Ellwood (History of the Eagles) Celebrating the music of Joni Mitchell, Jackson Browne, Linda Ronstadt, The Eagles, The Mamas And The Papas, Carole King, Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, James Taylor, The Doors, Frank Zappa and more, the film will be uniquely immersive and experiential, taking us back in time to a place where a rustic canyon in the heart of Los Angeles became a musical petri dish. Said director Alison Ellwood, Though a little too young to have experienced the Laurel Canyon music scene first hand, the songs created in that magical place made it onto the radio and travelled over 6000 miles to where I was growing up in the UK. The music is the soundtrack of my youth; each song evokes memories becoming timeless in my consciousness. I am thrilled to be a part of this talented team assembled to tell this incredible story. Having personally lived through this musical period of time, Im incredibly excited to be involved in telling this story, especially given the amazing team weve assembled to make what we intend to be the definitive documentary on the Laurel Canyon scene, said executive producer Frank Marshall. Said Craig Kallman, Chairman & CEO, Atlantic Records, In Laurel Canyon, all the stars aligned to kindle a creative community unlike any other in modern musical history. Brought together during a cultural sea change, these artists inspired themselves and each other to make transcendent music that remains as vibrant and relevant today as it was a half century ago.

          MYSTIFY MICHAEL HUTCHENCE is a powerfully intimate and insightful portrait of the internationally renowned frontman of INXS, Michael Hutchence. Deftly woven from an extraordinary archive of rich imagery, Michaels private home movies and those of his lovers, friends, and family, t...he film delves beneath the public persona of the charismatic Rock God and transports us through the looking glass to reveal a multifaceted, intensely sensitive and complex man. For an all too brief time, we revel in Michaels Dionysian beauty and sensuality on stage and off. We listen to the range of his extraordinary voice and witness the charmed way he travels through life as he is propelled to world acclaim. But Michael struggled with the idea of success, the creative limits of pop stardom and how to express his integrity; a longing that shaped his life and music and gave birth to a desire to go far beyond the constraints of pop.A violent event strikes Michael and changes his life dramatically, fracturing his sense of self and robbing him of his connection to life. Made vulnerable, he is unable to navigate the complex challenges he faces, and has little defence against the onslaught of the tabloid press that descend on his world. Amidst the darkness, Michaels newborn daughter, Tiger, becomes his one bright light. MYSTIFY MICHAEL HUTCHENCE is written and directed by Richard Lowenstein, director of the majority of both INXS and Michael's music videos and the 1986 feature film, Dogs in Space, in which Michael played the lead.

          Narrated by Dan Aykroyd, Defend, Conserve, Protect pits the marine conservation group, Sea Shepherd - a passionate group of eco-activists - against the Japanese whaling fleet, in an epic battle to defend the majestic Minke whales of the Southern Ocean. These noble, curious Minkes... are easy prey for the Japanese, who claim to kill in the name of science an assertion that has been widely discredited outside Japan for years. At the helm of Sea Shepherd is 28-year old Captain Peter Hammarstedt who carries with him the resolve of Melville's Captain Ahab - only Hammarstedt hunts the whaling ships not the whales. This is the incredible true story of what happens when a small group of determined people stand up against an aggressive corporation flagrantly defying international law. Produced in Australia and successfully financed through a global crowdfunding effort, where over 750 passionate environmentalists pledged funds, Defend, Conserve, Protect took more than four years to make, and was shot across France, The Netherlands, the U.S., Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Antarctica.
