AWARD-WINNING DRAMA TRI BOWS IN CALIFORNIA


Ahead of a wide Summer release, the inspiring drama  TRI screens in Long Beach, California on Thursday, June 2nd

The film, which recently walked away with the top prize at the Northern Virginia International Film & Music Festival, is presented by TRIBE - Triathlon Club of Southern California and screens at the Art Theatre of Long Beach at 7pm.  

In addition to a screening of the award-winning movie, the evening features a Q&A with associate producer Julie Moss and actor Shawn Pelofsky. There will also be a raffle and a chance to meet and connect with fellow athletes and TRIBE sponsors.

A portion of the proceeds to benefit the Challenged Athletes Foundation.

In addition to winning Film of the Year at NOVA, Jai Jamison’s inspiring drama snared the NOVA Award, Best Actress (Jensen Jacobs), Best Family / Faith Based Film, and Best Inspirational Film. 

TRI was also a Runner Up for Best Cinematography (Feature Film) and Best Editing (Feature Film).

The film also recently won the Indie Spirit Best Story Line Award from the Boston International Film Festival.

TRI is an inspiring, emotionally-charged drama about a medical technician with a history of not finishing things who is inspired by a cancer patient to sign up for her first Triathlon.  The film’s potent garland of performers includes Jensen Jacobs and legendary TV star Tim Reid.

Natalie (Award-winning actress Jensen Jacobs), an ultrasound tech with a history of not finishing things, is inspired by a cancer patient to sign up for a Triathlon. Natalie is introduced to the strange (and aerodynamic) world of triathletes and meets a colorful cast of characters as she trains for the Nation’s Triathlon. With the support of her new teammates, she digs deep to discover just how far she can push her mind and body.

TRI is the first scripted feature narrative about triathlons that has been developed for theatrical release. Triathlon is the fastest growing endurance sport in the world and was the fastest growing of all sports in the UK in 2014. There are over 600,000 athletes registered with USA Triathlon, and over 3.2 million worldwide.

Although the film uses triathlon as a backdrop, the niche target market for the film is female runners. Of the roughly 20 million finishers of running events in 2014, 60 percent were women.

The concept of TRI is to raise awareness and hope for those who are seeking compassion or understanding while dealing with cancer as a caregiver, a patient and a survivor.

The writing team for TRI includes a two time Ironman finisher and professional triathlon coach who has led cancer awareness programs; a cancer survivor; and, an award winning screenwriter who has lost loved ones to cancer.

Jensen Jacobs, Shawn Pelofsky, Jaylen Moore, Chris Williams, Kelly Spitko, Tim Reid and Walker Hays star in a Jai Jamison film, written by Theodore Adams III, Monica Lee Bellais and Jai Jamison. The Executive Producers include Kimberly Skyrme, Regional Casting Director for House of Cards, and Russell Williams II, a two time Academy Award winner.

LAFF review A CROOKED SOMEBODY

2107
Directed By: Trevor White
Starring: Rich Sommer, Clifton Collins Jr., Joanne Froggatt, Amanda Crew, Ed Harris
Producers: Jason Potash, Paul Finkel, Tim White, Wayne L. Rogers Sales: CAA
Ambition is a powerful drug that can inspire positive change. It can force you outside of the comfortable boxes you place yourself in. It asks you to stretch and reimagine not only the person you are but the person you could be. Most great men and women have a deep relationship with what they see as their purpose. This is a personality trait never driven by or limited to the pragmatic and there in lies the problem. Logic be damned, when a sense of determination is your north star. 
Michael Vaughn (Sommer) is an ambitious psychic on the road promoting a book that no one is buying. Using parlor tricks and audience plants Vaughn helps people "connect" with loved ones who have passed on. Somewhere in between a traveling preacher and a low-rent John Edwards he sees himself as a man destined …

SONG OF SOLOMON Review

Exorcism films do not begin and end with William Friedkin's THE EXORCIST. With entries as varied as BEETLEJUICE, CONSTANTINE, and THE RITE, the exorcism sub-genre of horror films is far more diverse than many immediately recognize.  

With THE SONG OF SOLOMON director Stephen Brio has added a unique take on the possession movie. In his film, the Catholic church attempts to save the soul of Mary (Jessica Cameron) who appears to have been possessed after witnessing her father's brutal suicide.

Mary is off camera while her father takes his own life. In a scene that could play as a confessional or an accusation, the family's patriarch lists off the reasons why he is being forced to use his knife on Mary and himself. He details how they were a good, loving family and he can't understand why she is accusing him of abuse. Using demonic control as a metaphor for trauma survival is something so natural, I can't believe it's not woven into every film of this kind.
