Magic Lantern Pictures and Exodus Cry present Liberated: The New Sexual Revolution, a feature documentary about coming of age in today's young adult hookup culture. The film provides a shocking insight into attitudes and behaviors regarding sex, the normalization of sexual violation, and the struggle against conceptions of gender and sexuality shaped by the media and popular culture. The powerful, unflinching film will launch a world impact screening tour on university campuses across the US, UK, Australia, and New Zealand beginning late Feb 2018. Each screening will be followed by a panel discussion with the filmmakers and subjects who will share their experiences during filming, as well as how their lives have been impacted since. The film is currently available on Netflix.

Each year thousands of college students from around the globe flock to popular resort beaches for the generational rite of passage known as spring break. Over the course of a week filled with booze and casual hookups, Liberated: The New Sexual Revolution follows the journey of college students during these spring break revelries, offering an insightful look into their attitudes and behaviors regarding sex. It is an honest and raw depiction of this casual sex environment where sexual violation has become normal, and sexual assault is customary.Liberated: The New Sexual Revolution widens the view of today's hookup culture by examining the role of pop culture in shaping conceptions of gender and sexuality that underlie this new sexual revolution.

At a time when the mighty #MeToo and #TimesUp movements have brought us to a cultural tipping point, Liberated: The New Sexual Revolution aims to reinforce the empowering anti-sexual assault crusade by creating and encouraging brutally honest conversations among the vulnerable young men and women directly affected by this toxic environment.

"Liberated causes us to ask more questions than it attempts to answer. It leaves us with a lot of unresolved tension and challenges us to find solutions," says director and producer Benjamin Nolot. "I see it as the beginning of a conversation, not the ending of one. "

Liberated: The New Sexual Revolution world impact screening tour kicks off on the west coast on February 27 at UC Berkeley. See confirmed additional venues and timeline below. Go to for more information, and check back often for more additional tour dates being added daily.

Richard Armitage interview on SLEEPWALKER

SLEEPWALKER is the latest film from director Elliott Lester. Troubled by bouts of sleepwalking and disturbing nightmares, graduate student Sarah Foster goes to her university's sleep research center for help. When she wakes up after her first night of being monitored, the world she lives in seems to have changed in subtle, Twilight-Zone-esque ways. In fact, every time she goes to sleep now, she wakes up in a slightly different version of her world. With the help of sleep researcher Dr. Scott White, she tries to work her way back to the reality she started in. But when they finally succeed, it’s revealed that Sarah’s world is not what she thought at all.

Today my guest is one of the stars SLEEPWALKER, Richard Armitage. Tonight we talk about his work on that film as well as his work as Thorin Oakenshiled in The Hobbit Films, as John Proctor in The Crucible, and his upcoming films Ocens 8 and the Julie Delpy directed film My Zoe.

Directed By: Savannah Bloch
Starring: Tania Nolan, Rachel Crowl, Mary Holland, Karan Soni, John Kassir, and Anne Gee Byrd

Alyssa (Nolan) wakes up to find her home pillaged and her husband missing. The burglars have taken everything, down to the photos of her husband. The police offer little help so she turns to a friend of the family Eve (Crowl) for assistance. The film is less of a "who done it" and more of a "what happened."

The prolonged second act of the film focuses on the relationship between Eve and Alyssa. The suspense of the film lingers in the background while their relationship grows. In fact, clues of what is to come are clearly laid out in a way that allows the viewer to see where the film is headed before it gets there. I'm not sure if this is by design but the effect of having the stories trajectory clearly laid out gives the audience permission to accept this blossoming relationship.

Nolan and Crowl both give stunning performances that anc…


SWEET PARENTS review 2017
Directed By: David Bly
Starring: David Bly and Leah Rudick
Written By: David Bly and Leah Rudick

Moving to New York City with ambitions of making it as an artist is an uphill battle. Hell, moving to New York with ambitions of breaking into fast food is an uphill battle. Exorbitant rent makes it difficult if not impossible to get a temp job while you audition, paint, write, or sculpt. And paying $28 for an artisan PB&J not only has a heavy tax on your pocketbook, over time it can carry a greater burden on your soul. Spending tons of money to only feel like you are barely keeping your head above water is a crushing way to exist.

SWEET PARENTS is the story of a young couple who have been living the artists struggle in NYC for close to 8 years. Will has dreams of making it as a Chef and Gabby wants to become a professional sculptor. Both start side relationships, as last ditch efforts to support their careers, in what becomes a choice between ambition and lo…
