New Trailer For The Highly Anticipated Film “Greatland” Set For Release This Friday

Academy award-nominee Eric Roberts, Nick Moran (Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels), J.P. Manoux (Veep), former boxing champion of the world Shannon Briggs, and horror icon Bill Oberst Jr (The Devil’s Rejects) star in writer-director Dana Ziyasheva’s (Defenders of Life) timely “GREATLAND.”

An allegory of today’s world, saturated with current political references and shocking imagery, the film’s teaser got a life of its own on social media, with shares, comments and reactions on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube ranging from WTF?!!! and “What did I just see?! to “Which side are you on?” With one FB follower who summarized it perfectly: “Exactly what this world looks like to an outsider. Freaks and f*cks all heading down the rabbit hole.”

The dystopian sci-fi feature, which also stars up and coming young actors Arman Darbo (And Then I Go) and Chloe Ray Warmoth (Fuller House), is the coming of age story of Ulysses set in imaginary country Greatland, whose citizens, the “Greats” are too evolved to bother with government, work, education, law, technology or money. Trapped in this world of perpetual fun and inter-species love ruled by a universal Mother, Ulysses must cross the forbidden frontier to save his childhood sweetheart, as an absurd election and a deadly Virus lead to chaos and violence.

With the future of traditional distribution system put in question by the pandemic, “GREATLAND” takes a new and innovative approach to promotion by engaging directly with its target audience. Given the timeliness and prophetic nature of the movie, the film creators are encouraging questions from the audience and answering them online thus engaging them in the complex and very original world building of the indie film all the while staying grounded in the contemporary political landscape.

“GREATLAND,” produced by Igor Darbo under his Popcorn & Friends banner, will be released later this year.

Breaking Glass Pictures Acquires Rights To Award-Winning Drama “Song Lang” For North American Distribution

Breaking Glass Pictures has acquired US rights to Leon Le’s multi award-winning drama Song Lang for North America. A nationwide virtual theatrical release in October will be followed by an On Demand/DVD release in November.
Breaking Glass acquired rights to the film in a deal negotiated between Breaking Glass CEO Rich Wolff and Tetsuki Ijichi, founder and CEO of Rain Trail Pictures.

“Leon Le’s award winning film festival favorite Song Lang, offers strong performances, against the backdrop of Saigon in the 90’s”, says Rich Wolff, CEO of Breaking Glass Pictures. “The heart of this story is Cai-luong which is a Vietnamese style of folk opera, blended with a beautifully produced, and brilliantly acted, story of how two men’s lives converge, and for a moment find peace and contentment. An absolute festival favorite which audiences will love”.

“We are thrilled that Breaking Glass Pictures will be releasing this beautiful movie in North America. It is one of the most audience award-winning Asian movies of the decade and we are so proud of this feature film. I believe everyone will enjoy it”, said Tetsuki Ijichi of Rain Trail Pictures.

Set in 1980’s Saigon, Song Lang is a gritty underworld noir hiding a tender, romantic heart. At the film’s core is the unlikely bond that develops between hunky, brooding Dung (Lien Binh Phat), a tough debt collector for a ruthless loan shark, and Linh Phung (V-pop star Isaac), a charismatic young opera singer for a struggling company that performs Cai-Luong, a modern form of traditional Vietnamese folk opera.

The two meet when Dung comes to forcefully collect a debt from the opera troupe, but when their paths cross again, a friendship develops, awakening surprising, tender feelings in both men. With his first feature film, director Leon Le has delivered a rich drama: a smoldering relationship between two apparent opposites–equally uncompromising–set against the backdrop of a gorgeous, fading art form.

Song Lang will release in virtual theaters October 9 and DVD and Digital on November 11 from Breaking Glass Pictures.

Peewee by Rebecca Wright
June 22, 2011

Fans know Adrian Jackson better as Peewee, an MC in the Jackson area. His latest single, “Go Peewee,” is in rotation on WRBJ-FM 97.7. Peewee, 25, is a Mississippi native who has always had a passion for music. He worked hard to get where he is and has no intention of slowing down. He works as a barista at the King Edward Hotel and is also a student at Jackson State University, where he is majoring in health and recreation. Between work and school, he manages to DJ, write, record music and perform his own work.

The musician also works with children. He recently helped to incorporate his song, “Go Peewee” into a program to help fight childhood obesity with music and dance, trying to get kids to be more active. He strives to be a role model to children and youth.

“Go Peewee” has a hip-hop sound, but he doesn’t want to box himself into a specific genre. “I try not to classify my music, because music can go anywhere, and that’s the type of person I am. I really just label it as music,” Peewee says. “If you listen to my music, it varies —it gives you different styles, and I like that.”

His passion as an artist is evident in his conversation and in his music. He recently released a mix tape titled, “Hello My Name is Peewee.” He will make a music video for “Go Peewee” later this summer and will release a second recording later this year. Peewee’s music is available online at http://www.reverbnation.com and http://www.datpiff.com.

For upcoming shows, follow Peewee on Twitter @GoPeewee, or find him on Facebook at “Go Pee Wee.'” For bookings, contact gopeeweebiz@gmail.com.
