Human-Trafficking Thriller "Carga" Arrives On VOD This March


Arriving on DVD & VOD on March 12, from writer/director Bruno Gascon, is human-trafficking thriller "Carga". The film is the story of Viktoriya, a young woman who throws everything away in search of a better life. From the moment the doors of the truck where she travels open up, Viktoriya is confronted with the cruel reality of human trafficking. Can she escape her fate? Starring Netflix’s “1983” Michalina Olszanska in a breakout performance, 3-time Golden Globe winner Victor Norte (“Cinco dias, Cinco Noites”), and international model Sara Sampiao in her feature film debut.

A truck driver tormented by the load he carries. A road that should lead to a better life. Human beings treated as goods for selling... In a capitalist society where each person focuses on their own needs, it is easy to forget about those around us and only do what is best for each of us. This is the story of Viktoriya, a young woman who throws everything away in search of a better life. From the moment the doors of the truck where she travels open up, Viktoriya is confronted with the cruel reality of human trafficking. Can she escape her fate?




DIRECTOR'S STATEMENT
HUMAN TRAFFICKING CROSSES ALL BORDERS AND CAN HAPPEN TO ANYONE

Tackling the issue of human trafficking, Carga is mainly a film about choices, survival instinct and strong women who do not give up, and a cargo that above all is emotional and that all the characters carry. My preoccupation with social themes is the painting of a rough portrait of the realities that humans often choose to ignore, but they are always part of what I write.

IS ANY PART OF THIS STORY BASED IN REAL LIFE OR SITUATIONS?

For seven years now, I and my producer have worked on several documentary stories. Once we had the story of a man who came to Portugal in a truck. This man did not want to come to Portugal, but he trusted someone who made a promise to him, but he was betrayed. Lost near Lisbon and unable to speak English or Portuguese, for a long time he was not able to ask for help. When I started writing the script, I always had this idea in my mind: how far can we go when we have nothing? How are the choices made? And when we are vulnerable, what can happen to us? I was very worried when I checked in and investigated how traffic networks operate. It was very important listen the stories of several persons connected to ONGS that work with human trafficking victims. That part of the process was essential to understand how close is this reality is from all of us. Viktoriya’s journey is not real, but represents the journey of millions of persons around the world that are caught in human trafficking networks. The fact is that these networks have victims at various levels and that is portrayed in the film.

WHAT IS THE MEANING OF THE TITLE?

All the characters have in their shoulders a bigger cargo that they can handle with. The film talks about choices and about the egoism of society and where the survival instinct often prevails above the common good. My concern as screenwriter and director of the film is to work the gray areas of the characters from the concept of “good people do bad things and bad people do good things.”. Despite that, all of them will live forever with the consequences of their choices.

WHY IS THE FILM SPOKEN IN THREE LANGUAGES?

In “Carga” we are confronted with the cultural differences and with the misunderstandings that the linguistic barriers can have on us, which was the reason that led me to cross 3 languages in the film: Portuguese, English and Russian. Communication in this film is power, that ’s why Viktor talks in english with António (despite he knows the truck driver speaks and understands the language really bad), but when he wants him to obey he speaks in Portuguese to make sure that he understands every single word. Now put yourself in the shoes of someone like Viktoriya: she doesn’t understand a word that those men are saying to her, she is suffering, afraid and even when she escape no one understands her language. How can you save yourself if no one understands you?

Production Starts On Dustin Ferguson’s "Meathook Massacre: The Final Chapter"


Production Starts on Multi Award-Winning Filmmaker Dustin Ferguson’s Meathook Massacre: The Final Chapter Starring Alan Maxson, Vida Ghaffari, Danielle Brookshire and Robert Lankford
SoCal Cinema Studios starts production on multi award-winning filmmaker Dustin Ferguson’s (“Nemesis 5”, “Sleepaway Camp IV”) much anticipated “Meathook Massacre: The Final Chapter,” which is the last installment in this popular cult franchise.
It’s been 20 years since Dani (Danielle Brookshire, “Cheerleader Camp To The Death”) and her friends were attacked by a meathook-welding maniac in rural Nebraska. Today, while relocating to live in Southern California with her sister Samantha (noted actress Vida Ghaffari, “RoboWoman, FOX’s “The Mindy Project”), she still suffers from nightmarish visions that the worst is yet to come. Soon after a visit from a fellow survivor, “Bubba” (Robert Lankford, “Nemesis 5”) and his clan, including “Uncle Swine” (Alan Maxson, “Godzilla: King of The Monsters”), they track Dani down at her current residence for one last showdown.
”It’s been 5 years since my creation of the franchise, and I’m honored to return to put the final nail in the coffin – in the wildest installment of the series,” said Ferguson.
Ferguson and Ghaffari are repped by Joseph Kelbie Williamson of The Williamson Management.

Pagan Festival Shout Out : Old Slavic Velja Noc

Spirits of the dead visit their living relatives, overseen by Veles, Lord of the Dead. People wearing animal masks and wool cloaks wandered through the villages representing the dead, and a grain effigy of the Morana of the old year was burned. Morana and Jarilo are born of Solntse (Goddess of the Sun) and Perun (God of the Sky). Veles steals Jarilo and raises him in Virey, realm of the dead. [a/k/a Wielkanoc]

Veles is one of few Slavic gods for which evidence of worship can be found in all Slavic nations. The Primary Chronicle, a historical record of the early Eastern Slavic state, is the earliest and most important record, mentioning a god named Volos several times. Here, Volos is mentioned as god of cattle and peasants, who will punish oath-breakers with diseases, the opposite of Perun who is a described as a ruling god of war who punishes by death in battle. 

Veles also regularly sent spirits of the dead into the living world as his heralds. Festivals in honour of him were held near the end of the year, in winter, when time was coming to the very end of world order, chaos was growing stronger, the borders between worlds of living and dead were fading, and ancestral spirits would return amongst the living. This was the ancient pagan celebration of Velja noc (Great Night), the relic of which still persists amongst many Slavic countries in folk customs of Koleda, a kind of combination of carnival and Halloween, which can happen anywhere from Christmas up to end of February

Fight Flicks And B-movie Flare : My Interview With "Intensive Care" Director Jared Bentley

Filmmaker and TV director Jared Bentley's action thriller "Intensive Care" offers a strong female lead. The film also features one heck of a stuntperson who takes on that lead with some A-level, talent. Jared, himself considers actress Tara Macken's skill unrivaled.

"Intensive Care" follows three low life criminals who plan to rob an elderly woman’s home, but her caregiver turns out to be a former special ops agent with an agenda of her own. Ex-special ops turned nurse gives the thieves a fight they will not win.

I recently interviewed Jared Bentley about "Intensive Care" and his influences. You can check it out below. 

ASouthernlifeWhere did the inspiration come from for "Intensive Care"?
Jared Bentley: My filmmaking partners and I were getting frustrated, attempting to get financing for a couple projects of ours, so we decided to take matters into our own hands and self finance a feature. We were only working with about a $100,000 production budget, and because the actors we wanted, needed to go with SAG, which meant that 20% would be taken up by fringe costs that don't end up on the screen.

So this meant we needed to come up with a concept that was mostly in one location, and did not have a lot of principal actors.
It initially was going to be a horror film, but co-writer/producer, Darrin Scane and I grew up on straight-to-video B-action movies as kids, so the writing kept moving more towards that direction.  Co-writer/producer, Eric C. Storlie's interests lie with more with indie, off beat films, so a lot of the humor and odd quirks were his influence.  All of us agreed that a strong female lead would be far more interesting than making Alex a man. So once that was decided, the story came together very easily.

ASoutherLife: How hard is the process of bringing together those action sequences as opposed to creating those moments on paper?
Jared Bentley: It's very complex and you have to have a lot of elements in place. Take the scene where Seth and Alex are being dragged by the truck.

I came up with the idea but I have never done anything like that before.   We knew we needed actors that were skilled and comfortable with doing their own stunts. And lastly you need a stunt coordinator and special effects coordinator that not only know ways to build it, but can do so safely and in a manner that can be duplicated numerous times. Oh, and in a way that costs very little money. It's no small order.

My father was a special effects technician his whole life, so I grew up around guys like that. So fortunately, when it came
time to do this film, I knew exactly who to call. Pete Porteous and James Fuentez are two old school guys who have worked in
the business for over 30 years, so we were in good hands.

ASouthernLife: Is there a lot of compromise, and does it making finding actors capable of meeting such a huge challenge?
Jared Bentley:  There can be compromise, but fortunately not for us.   We knew we did NOT want to use stunt doubles on this as it's more costly and the quality is compromised.  I'm a big fan of the John Wick movies, as well as Mission Impossible. One of the elements that make those films so successful is that their lead actors ware wholly committed to doing the stunts, and it adds so much to the film, seeing and knowing this.

We were about 6 weeks out from production and we still didn't have our "Alex".. We were having a difficult time
finding someone that was the whole package: someone that could act well on many different levels, do their own stunts, and was willing and available to be in a low budget movie by an unknown production company. Fortunately, Kevin Sizemore, who plays "Seth" int he film, and who is also a producer on the project, knew about Tara. I saw her stunt reel and knew that that would be the easy part for her. And when she came in to read for the part, we were all so relieved because she was able to seamlessly switch between tough, vulnerable, funny, and sexy the way that he character needed to.

ASouthernLife: I guess it helps when your leading actor,  happens to be a stellar stuntperson. What was it like working with Tara Macken?
Jared Bentley: Tara is such a badass. Her stunt credentials and nearly unrivaled. But beyond that, her work ethic and professionalism set the tone for the entire shoot. Which is so important. People take their cues from the lead of the film, and if they are weak or are not committed, the rest of the cast and crew quickly follow.  She was game for everything we wanted her to do. 15 takes of an intense, long fight scene? Sure! Throw you through a wall? Sure! Hang you? Sure!

ASouthernLife: What other projects do you have in works?
Jared BentleyWe have a high school suspense thriller called Covetous, that we like to say is "Dexter meets Glee" or "Mean Girls meets Death Wish"We also have a kind of "Silence of Lambs" type Sci Fi/Crime thriller called The Conductor.  Each would require a higher budget than Intensive Care, so we looking for financing or co-production opportunities. On a different note, we have a college comedy called Class of 95, but right now, indie comedy is dead so hopefully that will change soon.

ASouthernLifeWho were some of the directors who inspired you growing up,  and first starting out in the film industry?
Jared BentleyAs a kid, it was Spielberg. Raiders of the Lost Ark is still my favorite film.  Then I became obsessed with Kubrick, mainly for his dogmatic technical prowess and innovation..  We are very spoiled by CGI now. If you can think it, you can make it. It wasn't that long ago that this wasn't true, and Kubrick advanced technology more than anyone in film. Watching Dr. Strangelove, when I was 16, was the first time I ever saw a film as something more than just entertainment.

Some of my less popular influences were Howard Hawks and Tony Scott.  Hawks for his story telling and fresh dialogue, and Scott for this visual style.  And of course Quentin Tarantino. Pulp Fiction was not only a film, it was a cultural touchstone. It's very rare for that to happen. And he is still one of the most unique, edgy, and inimitable voices in film.

The doll, found hidden in the dark recesses of the basement, is adopted by a lonely, near mute, wheel-chair bound girl. Soon the loving family is thrown into a living hell. But the violent deaths and supernatural occurrences bring the doll back into contact with the one person who may be able to help – its original owner. She knows what evil has taken roots within it, and ultimately what the spirit wants. It all leads to an explosive final showdown between psychic and demon, with the young girl’s soul hanging in the balance.”

Plaza had this to say about the film to THR:

Buckle up. I love it so much. To me, the original is an iconic movie. I haven't seen our film, just the trailer, but it's a real throwback horror movie. It's almost got a Spielbergian vibe to it. The reason I did it was for how beautiful the script was. It doesn't feel like a hokey, shticky, campy movie. If you remember the original Child's Play, it was a drama! It wasn't that funny. As the franchise went on, it became something else. The remake really captures the original.

A mother (Plaza) gives her son (Bateman) a toy doll for his birthday, unaware of its more sinister nature.
