TV SHOW: Z, by Jose Padilha

9ba6541133 posterThe wonderful images of the Iguazu National Park, its fauna and flora, the Iguazu Falls and the Devil’s Throat, are transformed into a desolate environment, an apocalyptic world, in an exciting story of love, hate, adventure, suspense, and horror.
An unsuccessful experience with the rabies virus starts a contagion and an unprecedented pandemic, turning humans into violent zombies.
Using as part of the scenario, the human anthill’s labyrinths of “Ciudad del Este” in Paraguay, and the borderland of Foz do Iguazu in Brazil, a chaotic world which emerges from irrational businessmen’s ambitions from international corporations.
A consortium of international companies led by Vital Import Corp.’s funds research of chemical weapons made in a clandestine laboratory in Lai Lai Shopping Center’s underground, in Paraguay.
The survivors, unknown until then, are trapped in an abandoned market. The relationship between them reveals internal conflicts, destabilizing the fragile physical and psychological structures of the new market inhabitants.
The inner and outer logic, good and evil, places to the test their concepts, forcing them to discuss and re-evaluate their ethical and moral conduct, while a scary and dangerous universe is formed outside the market.
A horde of ferocious and hungry zombies approaches and surrounds the market on every side.
A powerful metaphor of our time, where religious and political intolerance is about to reveal a fissure in society.

TV SHOW: Sorting Homegrown Issues in Therapy (SH*T)/Committed(?), by Tanishtha Dasgupta

56e678c353 posterNobody said commitment would be easy; no-one knows better than couples counselors who witness individuals hang on to domesticity by the thread. This only serves as fuel to SHILO’S distrust in relationships. We watch this marriage counselor brilliantly solve everyone else’s issues except her own as she and her two best friends try (and fail) to seek and keep a committed relationship to anyone outside of themselves.

 

Writer Biography – Tanishtha Dasgupta

8454e584b9 headshot

Born and raised in a conventional Indian middle-class family with unconventional ambitions, Tanishtha was allowed to pursue her creativity in the form of words by observing the world(s) around her, both within India and the United States, where she grew up learning the -mostly- beautiful chaos that comes with “adulthood”. Often mystified by the eccentricities of mankind, her tales tend to be a reflection of both the best and the worst of the people around her; both factual and fantastical.

 

Writer Statement

What is it about a person that makes someone stop, stare and solemnly vow to themselves that this is the person you’re going to spend the rest of their life with… only to break it the moment the next shiny, new piece of meat traipses in? We explore through the eyes of a broken woman who’s made a career out of fantastically fixing everyone aside from herself in the name of “love”. ‘Que sera, sera?’ More like ‘que sera, uhhh nah.’

TV SHOW: Conscious, by Jamaal Williams

Conscious follows a group of young high school aged teens, who successfully establish a drug syndicate supplied by a dangerous cartel. It explores the debts at which one would go to seek a means to an end.

TV SHOW: SMITTY, by Jason Holland

7fd4cb7f4e posterDo we really know who we are? The greatest trick the devil played is convincing the world it didn’t exist. What if you are something more then what you can imagine, and the only way to find out is to walk through satan’s gate. A young man found out just how special he was when he was giving the option of changing his life, but at a major cost. This is the story of Reptilian Smitty.

 

Writer Biography – Jason D. Holland

A797cda4ca headshot

Hello,

My name is Jason Holland; I love to write. I wrote my first book in the 2nd grade. It was titled “The Sun Ends in California, and I Hate My Coat”. That name might seem silly, but it had great meaning behind it. It was winter time, my mother made me wear this horrible red coat. I figured the only way not to wear the coat is to move to California where it is always sunny. So I wrote a book for my class project explaining why everyone should move to California. I just knew my mother had no choice but to take notice. I felt confident that we were going to move.

I though my book would have inspired my mother; it did, however, I still had to wear my coat. My mother then said something that always stuck with me. She said “Way to think outside the box.”

I loved that book. Every since then, I have been writing. I found that imagination mixes well with real life stories.

I have written two scripts, one is called SMITTY, the other is called Revers Society, both are drama, action, and thriller base. I am currently on my fourth children book series as well, called The Growing Bean. The book is about helping kids grow into who they are, and not what society wants them to be.

My first book was self published and is now all over the colonial school district, and doing well.

I can write just about anything but comedy. I am a naturally happy person. I can sit and make up a whole story without writing it down. The funny part of it is, my mind will actually believe its true, which will give me the correct emotion’s when writing.

I feel in order to write; you have to really put yourself in the story as if its happening to you. I always remember, if you have no emotion when writing, neither will your audience when watching or reading.
