But the headaches, excruciating migraines, keep coming.Inside her splitting mind, disturbing visions erupt: water, rafters and then the blinding white windows of a warehouse sized room. The space is menacing, mysterious and seductive. The visions intensify and soon there are signs. Julia knows that she must find the room. Desperate, she robs the Bingo hall, abandons her family and flies to New York. Her pilgrimage has begun.

In the legendary documentary A NIGHT PORTER?S POINT OF VIEW, filmmaker Krzysztof Kieslowski wanted to expose the Polish totalitarian state by creating a portrait of a night porter who in former times was a well known icon of social realism. Austrian filmmaker Andreas Horvath, inspired by Kieslowski?s film, tries to get to the core of the true person inside the porter by revisiting him in his follow-up documentary VIEWS OF A RETIRED NIGHT PORTER. Horvath initially sets out to learn more about the night porter?s path in life, but, guided by unerring intuition, he also manages to make important statements about the Polish people and the effects of recent historical developments as well as filmmaking and Kieslowski himself.

"For the first time public and political lives of Chinese villages are captured through the lens of the people who belong there. Villages can never be so real if filmed by an outsider.
This video is a collection of ten short documentary films, each of ten minutes in length, made by ten villagers (ages ranging from 24 to 59 at the time of filming) from around China. The ten filmmakers were the successful candidates selected among villagers who sent in their proposals for the competition. Each of them was awarded a DV camera (which ?is worth something like at least an equivalent of the costs of raising 15 handsome pigs back home?) by the EU project. They are eager to rediscover their home villages through the DV lens and to tell stories and be heard, for the first time in their lives.
It is the first time that Chinese villagers took up a DV camera to shoot a documentary of their own on the changing rural public lives and the changing countryside dynamics in their home villages within the developing democratic system known as ?village selfgovernance.? The interaction between the villagers in front of the DV camera and the one who is holding it from behind can never be the same if the film were to be shot by a ?professional? from outside the village."
The selected villager filmmakers are diverse in their background: their ages range from 24 to 59; two of them are women; the eldest man in the group is an ethnic Zhuang from Guangxi and the youngest filmmaker is an ethnic Tibetan girl from Yunnan; eight of the ten filmmakers live and work in their home village, while the other two are currently making a living in the city; the villagers come from nine different provinces, ranging from the impoverished Northwestern province of Shaanxi to the prosperous coastal province of Zhejiang.
None but two of the ten villagers had ever touched a video camera before they received the awarded digital video (DV) camera from the project. One of the two who did have some previous experience is the 24-year-old Tibetan girl and the 26-year-old man who left his home village a few years ago to earn a living doing camerawork for a wedding company in a nearby town.

"Nobody sees and nobody is aware, a tremendous man is living in our midst.
""Remembering the past is also a dream"" ? Grandfather
""My grandfather Abraham, my mother's father, has been part of my life since infancy. I rediscovered my grandfather three years ago when making a film about my mother. He was 90. Since then I want to be close to him, part of him. I see my grandfather as a universal human character, ""aged and old"" to use his words, far removed from all definitions of time and place, while at the same time well grounded in the reality of present day life, living it and feeling its pain.
His face is like an engraved stone, with an eternal smile that never falters or is never eroded by the negativities of life in this world. My grandfather is big on blessings. He's always making some kind of blessing, even for those for whom he feels no love. Everyone is holy, even if we cannot see it, even if they themselves are unaware.
My grandfather is a man of words, and that's why he speaks very little. He knows and understands the value of words, be they written and signed or spoken, which may detract from their power. But when my grandfather says something, it really resonates. His words come from entirely different places, that are unknown, so content with themselves, precise and accurate, that it is hard to believe that human lips have uttered them.
For over three years now, I have been following my grandfather Abraham. I have been documenting my journey and our common journey out into the world in writing, photography, and most importantly, thirstily gulping it down into my soul.
The film is a journal in which I see my grandfather, my grandfather's journal, through which I let his voice be heard.
His voice has almost never been heard. His story has almost never been told. "
"""Reminding the forgotten, arousing the dormant""
3 years ago, Grandfather and I departed on a journey of revealing his forgotten self.
A journey of a man to his own self, to a part which even he, is unaware of its existence.
Grandfather, who was born in Iraq and had experienced countless transitions, had completely assimilated in Israeli western secular society.
?It is not the same man, it is a reincarnation.?
Grandfather is my spiritual guide.
The film reveals the hidden treasure within him and reconnects both him and his audience to the timeless human essence which is us. "
"Canadian/ Israeli filmmaker.
Graduate of the Film & Television department at the Sapir Academic College.
As a Filmmaker, he won many grants and prizes, among them the America?Israel Cultural Foundation special award, IRC Scholarship Committee (Canada?Israel) and he won the David Perlov Grant for the film ""SABA"".
Amram practices stills Photography as well as Cinematography and one of his main works was the catalogue for Dorit Jacoby's Exhibition ""Gate of Tears, Rain of Roses"",that was shown in the Vatican in 2001.
As well as having his photographs published in various travel and art magazines, he was awarded a Prize at the Dead Sea Photo Contest in October 2002."

Holly G. (played by Victoria Foyt), is a successful clothing designer with her own boutique. In the course of a tumultuous Mother?s Day weekend she is confronted with deceit, elation, desperation, kleptomania, rebellion, addiction and passion. All this while under pressure to save her business and her family in just two days! In addition to a compelling story line, the film is peppered with poignant testimonials (documentary style) from the women within the film who 'confess' the real and all too often unacknowledged role that shopping plays in their lives. Jaglom has created a film which deals with the often overlooked phenomenon of women?s addiction ?? both good and bad ? to shopping. A sister film to his earlier ?Eating? and ?Babyfever? it co-stars, Victoria Foyt, Lee Grant, Rob Marrow, Bruce Davison, Mae Whitman and Jennifer Grant.
Henry Jaglom. American actor/director/writer Henry Jaglom studied acting at the University of Pennsylvania, then completed his training at the Actors Studio in New York. Jaglom acted on stage and in TV, marking time in small roles until 1967, when Jaglom found a project that could provide his big break: a marathon documentary of the Israeli six-day war, which he filmed, wrote and edited, but which was never generally released. Back in the U.S. as an actor in 1968, Jaglom was able to attain backing for his first film directorial job, A Safe Place (1971). While capable of turning out a "safe" commercial film like Always (1985), Jaglom has preferred to work in a European-style cinema verite fashion, encouraging his actors to improvise within a "party" framework. The director's Someone to Love (1987), set during a birthday celebration, allowed Orson Welles in his last screen appearance to expouse his philosophies to his heart's content. Jaglom's Eating (1990), which took place during another birthday bash, contained an incredibly self-revealing scene featuring Frances Bergen, Candice Bergen's mother.

Little Miss Sunshine is an American family road comedy that shatters the mold.
Brazenly satirical and yet deeply human, the film introduces audiences to one of the most endearingly fractured families in recent cinema history: the Hoovers, whose trip to a pre-pubescent beauty pageant results not only in comic mayhem but in death, transformation and a moving look at the surprising rewards of being losers in a winning-crazed culture. A runaway hit at the Sundance Film Festival,
where it played to standing ovations, the film strikes a nerve with everyone who?s ever been
awestruck by how their muddled families seem to make it after all.
JONATHAN DAYTON and VALERIE FARIS
