FLAHERTY NYC PRESENTS:
Francisco Serrano's SEVA LIVES

MONDAY, JUNE 13, 7:30 PM, ANTHOLOGY FILM ARCHIVES
32 SECOND AVE, NEW YORK, NY, 10003
$9/GENERAL $7/STUDENTS & SENIORS $6/AFA MEMBERS

Filmmaker in person for discussion!

Considered one of the best Puerto Rican films in recent years, SEVA LIVES offers a post-modern look at the history and impact of the U.S. invasion and occupation of the island.

When a fictional story reimagining the U.S. invasion was published in a widely-read newspaper in Puerto Rico, its readers believed it as fact. But like the infamous chaos-inducing Orson Welles radio dramatization of the War of the Worlds, the story was utter fiction simply taken as reality. The story contained letters from a historian who unearthed evidence that the United States did not enter Puerto Rico peacefully in June, as history dictates. Instead, the Americans invaded through a town named "Seva," massacred its people, and covered it up by changing the town's name to "Ceiba," its current name.

This story, as the newspaper tried to make clear, is fiction. Yet readers around the island believed it and a scandal ensued.

SEVA LIVES redefines Puerto Rican history in this update of the classic Puerto Rican short story "Seva." It mixes fictional elements with actual archival footage and real interviews with historians to discuss the significance and impact of the short story today. But, most significantly, SEVA LIVES deconstructs the sociopolitical debate of the facts and myths surrounding the history of Puerto Rico and explores the issues that arise when fiction meddles with recollections of the past.

Organized by Cinema Tropical, this screening celebrates the 50th anniversary of the 7th Robert J. Flaherty Seminar, held in Barranquitas, Puerto Rico.

===Bio===
SEVA LIVES is the first film of director, producer and editor Francisco Serano, whose previous credits as a digital animator include Maldeamores, Party Time and Diez en la Música. Serrano spends most of his time in front of his computer, where he made most of SEVA LIVES. He was born and raised in San Suan, Puerto Rico, and currently lives in Washington, D.C.

Hi everyone,
I'm seeking an experienced videographer to be a second camera on a shoot taking place this Saturday, June 25th, from about 1 to 3:30. It centers on a September 11-related memorial event occurring in a garden in Inwood at the northern tip of Manhattan. I can't pay much but I'm offering $50 and lots of gratitude. I'm shooting with a Panasonic DVX-100 so I'm seeking someone who owns the same kind of camera, and I'd prefer someone with experience with two-camera shoots. If interested please email me at neilorman[AT]earthlink[DOT]net.
Thanks a lot,
Neil

Third World Newsreel (TWN) and NewFilmmakers Series are proud to present Asian American Filmmakers Program. Please join us on Tuesday, July 5th at 6PM.

Life or Liberty by Konrad Aderer, 8 minutes
Shokriea Yaghi copes with the senseless incarceration of her husband in 9/11's aftermath. A Japanese American woman who lived through the WWII camps shares her bitterness and her fears for the future, as immigration law expert Cyrus Mehta and former federal prosecutor Michael Wildes debate the larger context of anti-terror policies. Part of the Call to Media Action series.

Rising Up: The Alams by Konrad Aderer, 11 minutes
See how a Bangladeshi-American family targeted by Special Registration fights back. As part of the Homeland security measures, immigrant men from 25, mostly Muslim countries were required to enroll in a Special Registration program. The result: no evidence of terror, but some 13,000 people are now being deported mostly for expired visas. The Alams were among the many families who believed that voluntarily participating in the Special Registration would show their loyalty. Instead, they face the prospect of breaking up their family, despite a decade of hard work and the raising of two children. Working with DRUM (Desis Rising Up and Moving), the Queens South Asian activist group, the Alams have become activists, organizing to fight for their right to stay. Part of the Call for Change series.

Two Months to Home by Janice Ahn, 8 minutes
In the months prior to 9-11, an Afghan woman named Samira Rahman narrowly escapes from the Taliban, losing her family. After settling down in Long Island and beginning a new one, Samira is taken away by Homeland Security agents in the middle of the night. Her husband Abdul, who runs a coffee cart in South Ferry, and their two young boys await news of her fate.

Dastaar: Defending Sikh Identity by Kevin Lee, 12 min
A restaurant owner beaten. A policeman fired. A 20 year subway conductor born in the U.S., threatened with job loss: All for wearing the signature turbans of their religion, Sikhism. Since 9/11, hate crimes and job losses have plagued the Sikh-American community, whose religion originated in India, and is not even Islamic. In response, the NYC Sikh community has organized to confront the bias and attacks, through legal suits, pressure on city officials and proactive public education. An excellent introduction to an often misunderstood religion and the success of community activism. Part of the Call for Change series.

December 7/September 11 by Ann Brandman & Paul Nishijima, 15 minutes
A comparison of how the events and possible after effects of September 11th may mirror those of the attack on Pearl Harbor. A collection of interviews with Japanese-American veterans who witnessed the events of December 7 in Hawaii offer their insight into what has happened and what might be to come. Part of the Call to Media Action series.

Enemy Alien Sneak Preview at Anthology Film Archives
Join Japanese American filmmaker Konrad Aderer to a sneak preview of his upcoming documentary film Enemy Alien.

Enemy Alien, a first-person documentary, is the gripping story of the fight to free Farouk Abdel-Muhti, a gentle but indomitable Palestinian-born human rights activist detained in a post-9/11 sweep of Muslim immigrants. Told through the eyes of the filmmaker, the grandson of Japanese Americans interned during World War II, this documentary takes on unprecedented intimacy and historical resonance.

As the filmmaker confronts his own family legacy of incarceration, his involvement in the current struggle deepens. Resistance brings consequences: In retaliation for organizing a massive protest from inside detention, Farouk is beaten and locked in solitary confinement, and his American-born son Tarek is arrested in a counterterrorism investigation into the documentary itself.

Tuesday, July 5th, 9:30PM

Hi everybody,

We are 2002studios based in Harrow, NW London in the UK. We are currently recording a lot of multi-lingual voice-over projects for well-known multimedia and linguistic companies. These projects range from video tutorials to audio integrated software and even complete audio books with music and sound effects! We would love to work with you to overdub your films in many different languages. How do we make that happen?

Well, we have our very own database of over 150 native speakers in 38 different languages. We provide male as well as female voice-over actors in English (U.K. regional dialects as well as American English), French, Dutch (Flemish is also available), German, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian,… but also Japanese, Indonesian, Mandarin, Cantonese, Farsi, Croatian, Hungarian, Turkish and many other languages. If we don’t have a language in our database that you are currently looking for or if you are not pleased with our selection, then we will hold auditions and find you a suitable voice-over actor at no cost.

Linguists have verified all our native speakers in the database so that we can provide 100% authenticity. 100% of the recording takes place in our London studio, so we have a consistent sound, have complete oversight of the quality.

We provide all this with VERY COMPETITIVE pricing and we are not shy to throw in some bonuses when asked to do so (Think music and sound design).

If you are interested in finding out more, feel free to contact us anytime.

I'm knowledgeable and passionate about this region's history, culture, and its peoples and would be eager to channel this insight into documentary film-making. Please check out my profile for essential info and contact me for a full resume/more details: alex(dot)safos(at)gmail.com.

My name is Jeff Dreyer. I'm a father of a Special Needs 22 yr old child. I'm so very tired of hearing the derogatory, demeaning and hurtful word "retard" being used so rampantly these days. I made an 18 minute documentary titled "it's Just Not Funny". The premise is to get the entertainment industry to take the word "retard" out of their scripts. The video was on YouTube for nine days only. It had almost 600 views though. I had over 30 wonderful comments on YouTube, and I received from across the country another 100 positive messages on my Face Book page and my birdland@cox.net e-mail.
Here's the issue. The Special Olympics Southern Cal. made me take it down, because they said some of my content is negative towards the entertainment industry. That's the idea. Someone has to step up an speak out against the offenders that perpetuate this use. It's everywhere these days. TV, movies, talk shows, interviews et cetera. The person that edited it for me isn't interested in continuing with my project. I need someone to help me take the SOSC logo out of some of the footage, and remove their name from the credits. I then want to enter the documentary in some film festivals. If the right person with some horse power in the business viewed it, and they have a Special Needs child, sibling, relative or friend, the doc would catch fire. Then possibly we can make the doc larger and get some results. Anyone that would like to volunteer about five hours would certainly be included in the credits. I live in S. Orange County Cal. I could come up to Los Angeles if need be. Thanks, Jeff

Hi everyone,

Only 19 days left for our Kickstarter fundraising campaign to complete and we need YOUR support to reach our goal. If you haven’t contributed yet, please click here to donate to our project so we can bring the much-needed humanitarian help to women who are victims of sex trafficking.

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/iLan/holy-ghetto-0

The US State department Trafficking-In-Person report (TIP report) clearly indicates the stagnation of Israel’s enforcement in regards to sex trafficking. After speaking to a senior Police official who specializes in curbing sex trafficking in Israel, he revealed to me in a personal interview that trafficked women numbers are rising again, and this time, the traffickers are choosing South American women as their target.
