This is why we work to avoid plastics at our events and on our sets, and one way is by shopping at package-free stores like Precycle!

We know we are privileged in NYC to have access to stores like this. We would love to hear how your make your sets (and lives) more eco-friendly?

Shout out by the African Forest Elephant Foundation to #silentForests.

More than half of the Central African forest elephant population has been decimated by poachers in the last decade. Check out this new film following one of Cameroon’s first female eco-guards, a grassroots law enforcement group, a Congolese biologist, a reformed posher and a Czech activist to understand what’s happening in the under-reported region, the Congo Basin, and the global poaching and ivory trade crises we face.

"Frames of Reference" is a feature-length film that explores 7 different cultural perspectives on education. The team filmed in 6 countries, talking to a wide array of students, and people having the biggest impacts on them. Here are a couple mementos from the film crew's travels:

A pamphlet from elementary school on a Native American reservation in Montana.

A map, taken during a visit to a school in a Tokyo suburb.

Sardines Out Of A Can

#shortComedy

Shonali Bhowmik, writer and director for this film, was inspired to make this film when a friend emailed her the link to a very disturbing website. She used a small crew, very little money, and shot in three locations in NYC within three days. Rising comedy stars John Early, Adam Wade and actor Christian Felix join her in the cast. The soundtrack features brilliant independent recording artists such as Shannon Wright, Ted Leo, Sam Jayne, Love As Laughter, K. Michelle DuBois, Tenement Halls, Marcellus Hall, Mighty Challenger and The Levitations. The film was in a number of film festivals around the world and won best romantic comedy short at Bare Bones International Film Fest.

Trevor Noah articulates complicated subjects very well and very often about American society. He is an immigrant. Sometimes you can see much more from an outside perspective. Whether or not one agrees with what he's saying, he does in fact have a different perspective on subject matters and communication important.

Today mass communication is very powerful. Understanding different perspectives on complex issues like climate change, diversity, racial tensions, language barriers. We are not affiliated with The Daily Show nor do we help make it, nor do we agree with everything they make or do. We don't even necessarily make similar content. But having a powerful tool be represented by different perspectives is very important. That is what we're aspiring to do with Fourwind Film's content. #perspective #diversityIsImportant

Trevor discusses the hugs Amber Guyger received in court after being convicted of murdering Botham Jean in his own home.

Announcement: "Abuela's Luck" Picked Up By HBO

ANNOUNCEMENT.

Since its release, Abuela’s Luck, a bilingual film with Latinx actors, writers, crew, producers, has resonated with people across the continent.

So much so that the film has been picked up by HBO. Yup, that HBO.

Ricky Rosario started writing Abuela’s Luck because he was missing his family, loved ones and most importantly, cultural traditions. He wrote a young Dominican character with an abuela who, like Ricky's own, loves scratch-offs. The script evolved into a story about making one's own luck, which anyone pursuing a career in the film industry has to do, especially as a Latinx filmmaker. There's an LA Times article called "Latino representation in Hollywood movies is abysmal. Here’s the proof" where you can read more: https://lat.ms/2zoANYg

Congratulations to all involved. Now let's all go watch this movie.
It will show on HBO Latino :
Tue, Oct 1 6:20pm ET
Thu, Oct 3 9:45 pm ET
Fri, Oct 11 9:50 pm ET
