Greatland (November 1, 2020 - Amazon VOD)


Director: Dana Ziyasheva

Starring: Eric Roberts, Nick Moran, J.P. Manoux, Shannon Briggs


"GREATLAND, a dystopian fantasy by writer-director Dana Ziyasheva, will be released on Amazon VOD November 1, 2020 by Indie Rights.

Filmed in Los Angeles in a futuristic vintage style, GREATLAND stars 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), alongside up-and-coming young actors Arman Darbo (And Then I Go) and Chloe Ray Warmoth (Fuller House).

Set in an imaginary country dubbed the birthplace of love and endless source of fun, GREATLAND tells the tale of Ulysses, a rebellious non-binary teen on a mission to save his childhood sweetheart as an absurd election and a deadly virus wreak chaos and violence.

GREATLAND is quickly becoming something of an urban myth. Its COVID-inspired teasers, released at the height of lockdown in April/May, went viral generating millions of views on YouTube and TikTok, conspiracy theories and critical reactions ranging from “totally WTF?!!!” to “Bat**t brilliance!” Shown at the Moscow International Film Festival (MIFF) early this month, GREATLAND was hailed as “the most flamboyant and unusual canvass” by the festival organizers, with “brain-blown” movie critics calling it “stunning, mesmerizing with its courage and exuberant imagination” "among The Dry (January 1, 2021 - Australia) most unforgettable movies of the year" and liking Ziyasheva’s creative ambition to that of Timur Bekmambetov, the President of the MIFF Jury -- both are ethnic Kazakhs and have Hollywood on their resumes.

GREATLAND is Ziyasheva’s sophomore feature. The LA-based indie film-maker is a former journalist and a UNESCO diplomat with 20 years of development work around the world: Her drama “Defenders of Life” about child-brides set in the indigenous Ngäbe tribe of Costa Rica, prompted a national ban on under-age marriages and is available on Amazon Prime. Harvard-educated Igor Darbo who produced both Ziyasheva’s features under his Popcorn & Friends banner, counts on audience and movie critics’ sense of humor and detachment, to view GREATLAND as a farcical crash course in social engineering.

The Dry (January 1, 2021 - Australia)


Director: Robert Connolly

Starring: Eric Bana, Genevieve O'Reilly, Matt Nable, James Frecheville, Keir O'Donnell, Sam Corlett, Martin Dingle Wall, BeBe Bettencourt, Miranda Tapsell


"When Federal Agent Aaron Falk (Eric Bana) returns to his home town after an absence of over twenty years to attend the funeral of his childhood friend, Luke, who allegedly killed his wife and child before taking his own life -- a victim of the madness that has ravaged this community after more than a decade of drought. When Falk reluctantly agrees to stay and investigate the crime, he opens up an old wound -- the death of 17- year-old Ellie Deacon. Falk begins to suspect these two crimes, separated by decades, are connected. As he struggles to prove not only Luke's innocence but also his own, Falk finds himself pitted against the prejudice towards him and pent-up rage of a terrified community."

Dear Santa (December 4, 2020 - in theatersa and on VOD)


Director: Dana Nachman


"DEAR SANTA shines a light on the 100-year-old 'Operation Santa' Program of the United States Postal Service. Each year, hundreds of thousands of letters to Santa arrive at Post Offices around the country. Through Operation Santa, the United States Postal Service makes it possible for the public to safely adopt these letters and make children’s dreams come true. The film invites audiences along for the magic of this massive endeavor. Traveling the country, much like Santa does on Christmas Eve, the film focuses on select 'Operation Santa' Centers: some in metropolitan areas like the massive operation in New York City and others in small towns where the Post Office is the heart of the community. The film highlights letters where a child is asking for something poignant, something that goes beyond the common wish for a toy. Santa will explain how he enlists kind-hearted strangers across the country for these special requests while he concentrates on toy making and his demanding delivery schedule. This timeless documentary captures the warmth and spirit of Christmastime through the lens of this great American tradition, provoking audiences throughout the world to ask themselves how they can make the world a better place, one gesture at a time."
