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.”

“Buried: The 1982 Alpine Meadows Avalanche” Doc Sets Release Date

Buried The 1982 Alpine Meadows Avalanche Doc Sets Release DateGreenwich Entertainment has acquired of U.S. and Canadian distribution rights to “Buried: The 1982 Alpine Meadows Avalanche”. The documentary premiered at the Telluride’s Mountainfilm festival where it won the Audience Award, the first of several subsequent festival awards.

The film, which tells the gripping account of the deadliest avalanche in US ski resort history, opens in New York City, San Francisco, and Northern California theaters on September 23rd and expands to subsequent markets the following weeks during a 45 day exclusive theatrical window. TVOD/EST and DVD begin on November 8, 2022.

“Buried” was produced by Jared Drake and Steven Siig and executive produced by Academy Award-winning producer Evan Hayes (Free Solo) of Ace Content, Oscar winner Michael Sugar (Spotlight) and eight-time Emmy nominee David Hillman (The Tipping Point) of Sugar23, Mark Gogolewski and Shannon Houchins. 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.

New Details On Blumhouse’s Upcoming Insidious Sequel Revealed

By Mandy

Patrick Wilson to direct Insidious sequel

Three new cast members were added to the ensemble of the upcoming Insidious 5 film: Hiam Abbas, Sinclair Daniel, and Peter Dager have all joined the cast.

After staying dormant for many years, and with some occasional development about the film also being released over the past few year, the film finally secured a summer 2023 release date last month.

The latest installment to the hugely successful supernatural horror franchise is set to be directed by Patrick Wilson in his directorial debut. Wilson, who starred on the first two installments of the franchise,
is also set to star in the upcoming sequel. Rose Byrne and Ty Simpkins are also set to reprise their roles as Renai Lambert and Dalton Lambert respectively.

Despite the death of her character in the first movie, Lin Shaye could also return as psychic Elise Rainier given her omni-presence in the series, possibly in a ghost form, along with her colleagues Specs and Tucker played by Leigh Whannell and Angus Sampson.

Last month, it was announced that the Untitled Insidious sequel from Blumhouse Productions is currently set for theatrical release on July 7, 2023, by Sony Pictures Releasing.

Insidious 5’s script is written by Scott Teems (Halloween Kills) and is based on a story from Leigh Whannell and Jason Blum. This will be the first time in the Insidious franchise that Whannell will not be writing the script.

Wilson was last seen in the science fiction disaster film Moonfall earlier this year.

Here’s the first synopsis as provided by Sony Pictures Releasing:
Set ten years after the end of previous first two films, Josh Lambert (Patrick Wilson) heads east to drop his son Dalton (Ty Simpkins) off at an idyllic, ivy-covered university. However, Dalton’s college dream becomes a nightmare when the repressed demons of his past suddenly return to haunt them both.
