An observational documentary set in post-conflict Belfast’s Ardoyne, where a marginalized, working class community has for generations been plagued by poverty, drugs and guns. This film charts the dream of Headmaster Kevin McArevey and his dedicated, visionary team illustrating how critical thinking and pastoral care can empower and encourage children to see beyond the boundaries and limitations of their own community. We see how philosophy encourages young boys to question the mythologies of war and of violence, and sometimes challenge the narratives their parents, peers and socio-economic group would dictate.

A visual, artistic interpretation of the story of the album, The White Buffalo: Year Of The Dark Horse the film was created by Jake Smith (THE WHITE BUFFALO) and features four different directors tackling each of the 12 songs on TWB’s forthcoming album YEAR OF THE DARK HORSE, in an epic and cinematic way. The unique, high-concept, art film was produced by award-winning director Lee Diskin, and also features directors Gene Sung, Pete Macomber and C.W. Mihlberger. Similar to the new album which is based around the shifting of the four seasons, each director took three songs to symbolize Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter. As a result, The White Buffalo: Year Of The Dark Horse delivers the ultimate artist statement realized through captivating performance art.

“My forthcoming album is a sonic and lyrical journey of one lunar year in one man’s life” says Jake Smith, THE WHITE BUFFALO. “Four seasons in 12 songs… Loosely based on my twisted truths and adventures. I wanted to show the seasonal effect on the heart and the mind. I also wanted to abandon, sonically, everything. Escape the acoustic clutches and genres I’ve been associated with and shackled to. I wanted to make my headphones album. Every song bleeds into the next. I took it further and created a visual companion as an art film comprised of vignettes for each of the 12 songs. Part performance art, part cinema, The White Buffalo: Year Of The Dark Horse will take you, the listener and viewer, on the emotional roller coaster that is this album with a feast for the senses. Four directors take three song sections of the album and each taking a season into another. Winter to spring, spring into summer, and so on. This piece of art is made to be consumed in one sitting. Hopefully mildly sedated or elevated. Enjoy!! This is… Year of the Dark Horse.”

Greenwich’s co-president Edward Arentz negotiated the acquisition with the filmmakers. Rocket Science is handling international sales.

“Essential viewing for skiers but all audiences – skiers and non-skiers alike – will find Buried a riveting account of a natural disaster, not only in the details of the avalanche itself and subsequent rescue efforts, but on how the disaster effected people in the years following and became a dividing line in time for the survivors and their community” says Greenwich’s Arentz.

Here’s the film’s official synopsis:
In the early 1980’s, the ski patrol at the Alpine Meadows ski resort were the undisputed gods of winter in the mountain hamlet of Lake Tahoe, California. Their esprit de corps was centered around keeping the skiing public safe, primarily through avalanche control and largely through triggering slides with explosives. For this group and the others caught up in these events, the innocent era of seemingly endless sun drenched powder and apres-ski parties would come to a sudden and harrowing close on March 31st, 1982.
