I love that this page supports filmmaking! I have to recommend a film I recently watched titled Ruby in Paradise. Written/directed by Florida local Victor Nunez, Ruby in Paradise follows a young woman on the search for independence in the tourist town of Panama City Beach. Nunez does a great job of creating an environment to reflect the development of the characters and his locality gives the film an authenticity that makes for a captivating watch. This film has recently been re-released on all VOD streaming platforms including Amazon Prime and Vudu and the trailer can be found on Quiver Distribution's Youtube Channel. I hope you all give it a watch!
I love to see that this university has a film club! I wanted to share that I recently had the chance to watch a film called Steps. This film is a very impressive drama that explores alcoholism and sheds light on the benefits of second chances. After being shot, Brian's life derails itself, as he becomes an alcoholic and loses his pregnant wife. Brian ends up homeless until a pastor comes across him and offers him a chance to get his life back together. Brian begins a journey towards personal growth while also getting a glimpse at Wendy's story with her and Brian's son. It is fascinating to see the dynamic between them, as Wendy is clearly still hurt she lost Brian to alcoholism. This film makes me wonder what would have happened if the pastor was not there to offer Brian another chance. There was no dull moment in this film, and I would definitely keep a lookout for the release on April 20th.
Just checked out this film club page and thought it was really cool! I noticed you all have collaborated with the Nightlight cinema, which I posted a film recommendation on, and so I figured I’d do the same here. I just recently started watching more indie films and thought I’d share one I enjoyed recently called Empathy, Inc. It involves a startup tech company that has created a new type of virtual reality experience, but when a recently broke venture capitalist gets involved, he realizes everything isn’t as it seems. The film definitely gave me The Twilight Zone and Black Mirror vibes while watching it, so if you’re a fan of that I would highly recommend watching the trailer for it on Youtube. Also, if anyone has any indie film recommendations they’d like to leave me, please feel free!
