Deadly Class (January 16, 2019 - Syfy)

JUMP BACK TO TOP



Director: Lee Toland Krieger (pilot episode)

Starring: Benjamin Wadsworth, Benedict Wong, Lana Condor, Michel Duval, Maria Gabriela de Faria, Luke Tennie, Liam James, Taylor Hickson

Synopsis:


"Deadly Class follows a disillusioned teen recruited into a storied high school for assassins. Maintaining his moral code while navigating a ruthless curriculum, vicious social cliques, and his own adolescent uncertainties may prove fatal. Set against the backdrop of late 80s counter culture, Deadly Class is a coming of age story unlike anything you've ever seen. Based on the smash hit comic series of the same name by Rick Remender."






Capernaum (December 14, 2018 - limited release)

JUMP BACK TO TOP



Director: Nadine Labaki

Starring: Zain al Rafeea, Yordanos Shiferaw, Boluwatife Treasure Bankole

Synopsis:


"Winner of the Grand Jury Prize at the Cannes Film Festival, Nadine Labaki's CAPERNAUM ("Chaos") tells the story of Zain (Zain al Rafeea), a Lebanese boy who sues his parents for the "crime" of giving him life.

CAPERNAUM follows Zain, a gutsy streetwise child as he flees his negligent parents, survives through his wits on the streets, takes care of Ethiopian refugee Rahil (Yordanos Shiferaw) and her baby son, Yonas (Boluwatife Treasure Bankole), being jailed for a crime, and finally, seeks justice in a courtroom. CAPERNAUM was made with a cast of non-professionals playing characters whose lives closely parallel their own. Following her script, Labaki placed her performers in scenes and asked them to react spontaneously with their own words and gestures.

When the non-actors's instincts diverged from the written script, Labaki adapted the screenplay to follow them. While steeped in the quiet routines of ordinary people, CAPERNAUM is a film with an expansive palette: without warning it can ignite with emotional intensity, surprise with unexpected tenderness, and inspire with flashes of poetic imagery. Although it is set in the depths of a society's systematic inhumanity, CAPERNAUM is ultimately a hopeful film that stirs the heart as deeply as it cries out for action."

Attempting to astral project, Alex becomes plagued by shadow spirits -- malevolent entities vying to enter his body to access our world. Alex soon learns that he is not the only member of his family to have been besieged by such beings, as his mother's dark past is brought to his attention."
