36th Santa Barbara International Film Festival Under My Skin (review) #sbiff

Beachie Beauty Travels, Beachie Beauty's on Set

This article is for informational purposes only. All opinions are my own.

Denny (they/them; played by four different non-binary/trans non-binary actors), a free spirited artist falls for Ryan, a strait-laced lawyer. Young love ensues, but when Denny begins to explore gender, Ryan’s ingrained values are challenged. As Denny finds they can no longer ignore their true self, pressures and tensions mount with Ryan. His inability to understand, and Denny’s unwillingness to submit to traditional gender roles soon causes a fracture. 

In their split, Ryan’s love for Denny guides him to take steps to understand and support. Despite their bond, however, Denny realizes that they cannot take the steps they need with Ryan. 

Ryan returns to the corporate ladder with little satisfaction. After an estrangement, Denny visits Ryan, and a new connection on new terms is borne. 

I have to say this film is very inclusive into non-binary/trans non-binary lives. Its a crisp take on how you see human beings differently. I love how it uses four different actors to play the part of Denny who is trying to fit in and earn her own life rewards. To the luck of a lawyer who loves Denny unconditionally and never seems to back down on how Denny see the life she wants to live. The direction of this film is beautiful. I hope all people are brave to live their truth as Denny and I also hope people are as bold to stand by love as Ryan. True testament to love.

It is now showing at the 36 Santa Barbara International Film Festival. Get your tickets it is showing April 9th Cliffside Drive-in 1pm-2:42pm #beachiebeautyapproved

36th Santa Barbara International Film Festival presents The Knot (review) #sbiff

Beachie Beauty Travels, Beachie Beauty's on Set

This article is for informational purposes only. All opinions are my own.

In this suspenseful drama, Shirish and Geeta, an upper middle class Indian couple, accidently run over someone. Their differing reactions to the consequences of the accident reveal fissures in their relationship and put their values and beliefs to the test. THE KNOT explores class conflict, materialism, and guilt. It asks whether high walls and locked gates can banish inequality and class structure, or whether the complicity of the middle class infects our most intimate relationships.

THE KNOT was written and directed by first time filmmaker Ashish Pant.  Its stars Vikas Kumar and Saloni Batra. 

Ashish Pant gives a inviting rendition to a classic spin on trust and love. The Knot is how all textbook stories begin where the husband is willing to do anything to make his spouse happy and provide for a better way of life. They are stricken by the a motorist they hit and she feels guilty for doing so as he was in the way of their car. His wife feels bad about hitting the man. The story goes on into him saving a business and not knowing he hires the brother of the man he hits. It gives you a glimpse on what is behind the gates of glory to step outside to a poverty area that no one wants to live. The brother of the man she hits is trying to get out of where he is to just taste a portion of an upper class life. The wife is shielded by her husbands grasp and her willingness to remain humble she trusts this person and shall I say the end was soo good that I dont want to spoil it for you. Its a must watch, written well and the direction in the film was excellent.

It is now debuting at 36th Santa Barbara International Film Festival so get your tickets.

36th Santa Barbara International Film Festival Presents Pan Hoot (Chimp Whisperer) Review #sbiff

Beachie Beauty's on Set

This article is for entertainment purposes only. All opinions are my own.

We live in a time where the things and people we love are not going to be here forever. It is what we do with these relationships that allow us to move in a way of love and certainty. I came across a documentary short film that displays the power of human connection and what we all must bring to humanity. Read on as we tell a story of hope.


Pan Hoot takes you along a journey where heartbreak, terror and war was happening at a time of replacement and renewal. In the short film you feel a sense of hope that one being can make the change for many generations to come. And Stany is one of those human beings that has turned rage and terror into glory. At an early age began working with chimps at a Halfway House in Bujumba, Burundi. A project started by Jane Goodall to rehabilitate chimps traumatized by mistreatment in captivity. Stany endured terrible heartbreak when his country erupted into civil war and the Tutsi began killing innocent Hutu in what was to become the Burundi genocide (Stany is Hutu).  After leaving his family in order to give them the best chance for survival, he followed the chimps that were relocated to Kenya for safety purposes and they became like his family.  It was then that he discovered his unique gift — the ability to communicate with mankind’s closest biological relatives – chimpanzees. Working with chimps gave Stany new meaning and purpose. He developed and perfected chimpanzee care and husbandry techniques that have been acknowledged and celebrated around the world including winning multiple global conservation awards for his pioneering chimpanzee work. Today, more than three decades later, Stany continues his work with chimps, at JGI’s Chimp Eden sanctuary in South Africa. Though he has faced much discrimination, injustice and hardship, Stany continues to rise above adversity, living a life of commitment, dedication and sacrifice. 


Here is a little background story on Chimp Eden:

Chimp Eden was established in 2006 and is the first and ONLY chimpanzee sanctuary in South Africa. This Jane Goodall Institute (JGI) South Africa Chimpanzee Sanctuary was created to provide a permanent and safe home for chimpanzees that have been misplaced from their natural habitats in Africa and rescued from shockingly cruel and abusive conditions.  From 17-year-old Sampa who was kept in a small cage for four years and developed extreme social anxiety to 23-year-old Cozy who was bred in a lab in the United States and subjected to horrific medical experiments, Stany cares for the 33 chimpanzees residing at the sanctuary with individualized care and love. This JGI chimpanzee sanctuary brings the world of chimpanzees closer to humanity through education end eco-tourism.

I really love the film as it portrayed that importance of how when we come together and care for one another we can make a difference in the world. I am especially thankful for Jane Goodall for providing such a safe haven for our earth most precious creations. A special thank you for a great story. #beachiebeautyapproved

Chasing Yesterday Newport Beach Film Festival @nbff #nbff

Beachie Beauty's on Set

Chasing Yesterday Screen Shot2

Chasing Yesterday is a heart warming film about a young adult who made a mistake and gets washed up by society. The Eric Nelsen plays junior as the lead character he  shows so much range in his ability to win back his life. Courtney Baxter plays Jenny who pushes him to be better than what he thinks about himself. The story is uplifting, and carries the torch of triumph to stay in the race because the victory is already won you just have to believe in yourself.

The parents played an important role in that they stood by their child through thick and thin. Depression is a serious issue if left untreated or nurtured the same can happen to others. I too had depression it was a post-partum.

Did you know that 1 in 8 women suffer the first few months after giving birth to a child? As a mom of six I felt for his parents. Doing any and everything to make what he’s going through right for him. I think the best part of the story is when he decided for himself that it was up to him to get off his ass and win. And he did. Every parent learns differently on what their children want and need. I am certain that the film will be in theater’s near you. The movie was funny and uplifting to watch. I would like to thank Andrea Simmons for sending this great film my way. To the cast and crew it was awesome to see it happen. To the director Joe Pernice Bravo.

The Newport Beach Film Festival provided me with a press pass. All opinions are my own.

Til next time. #beachiebeautyreviewapproved

The Unpunished Newport Beach Film Festival #npff

Beachie Beauty's on Set

The Unpunished uncovers the thrill in organized crime. Was once a past time Director Agnes Gattegno brings Newport Beach the drug lords of Mexico. Let’s delve on what he had to say about his latest project:

Q: How did you decide on telling the story of The Unpunished?

A: I’ve been working on organized crime for years. Since the Mexican narcos are the more powerful cartels worldwide because they are the N° 1 distributors of cocaine, I wanted to do a piece about them. Then, the HSBC case broke and, unfortunately, it shows exactly what we call “the grey zone”. Legal business partners and the link of international finance with blood money.

Blood, Sweat, & Beer Newport Beach Film Festival #npff #netflix

Beachie Beauty's on Set

Blood, Sweat and Beer is on my radar at this year’s Film Festival in Newport Beach. I caught up with the Directors for a quick Q&A about the film. Read on.

Q: How did you decide on telling your story through film?

 A: My co-director and girlfriend, Alexis Irvin, and I travel a lot with our first documentary, The Dream Share Project, which we’ve screened at about 200 colleges. As we’ve been traveling, we’ve noticed that there is a craft beer revolution brewing in almost every town we visit – breweries and craft beer bars are springing up everywhere. We knew that there had to be a story in the midst of the explosive growth of the craft beer industry.
 
Q: How in-depth was your research while filming in Braddock, PA?
A:  …We filmed with the owners… Matt Katase and Asa Foster – Matt and Asa are a pair of 22-year-olds fresh out of college. They are seeking to use their brewery to revitalize the once-prosperous steel town of Braddock, PA. For the last several decades, Braddock has been plagued by violence, apathy, and neglect. However, the Brew Gentlemen Beer Co. hopes to bring manufacturing jobs back into town. This story grabbed onto our hearts and wouldn’t let go – we knew we had to make a film about it. 

Q: What makes craft beer special?
A: For decades, the only kind of beer available in the U.S. was a light lager style. Basically, there were 3 major companies alll making this same kind of light beer – Budweiser, Coors, and Miller. However, craft beer gives consumers so much more choice – beer can literally have hundreds of different flavors, from bitter, to sweet, to spicy, to roasty, and on and on. It’s really exciting to live in a time when food and drink options are becoming more diverse. 
 I think consumers also really enjoy buying local products and meeting the people who produce their food and drink – which is something the big faceless corporations can’t offer.
 
Q: There are a lot of craft beers coming to market, How does their brew stand out?
 A:  Your question is one that we explore in the film. With so many breweries opening up, there seems to be some worries about whether or not the market is over staturated. Right now, the craft beer industry has had consistent growth for over a decade and is showing no signs of slowing down. There are over 3000 breweries in the country, which is the most we’ve had since prohibition.
 I think we will continue to see increased demand for local breweries like the ones in our film: Backshore Brewing Co and the Brew Gentlement Beer Co. I’m not sure we’ll see too many more huge national craf beer brands like Sam Adams, Sierra Nevada, and New Belgium.

Q: Will you be at the Newport Beach Film Festival?
A: Yes! Our film is screening at 6pm on Friday April 24th. We’re flying in to be at the screening for a live Q&A after the film. We’re also going to have an after party at Iron Press following the event. Tickets to the screening are available here: http://tinyurl.com/mqcxp7z
Q: Without giving away too much of the story, what do you want the audience to know about Blood, Sweat, & Beer?
A: This film is about much more than beer. It’s about the people behind the pint and the entrepreneur’s journey from blueprint to brewery. Even though beer is a fun product,  we don’t shy away from showcasing the struggles and the blood, sweat, and tears behind the brewery doors.
Q: What can we expect next?
 
A: Blood, Sweat, and Beer was made entirely by two people – Alexis Irvin and myself Chip Hiden – which means that we have to wear many hats – cinematographers, editors, and now full-time publicists. All of our energy is devoted to promoting the film and trying to distribute it (netflix is a huge goal for us)
We have a bunch of ideas for new films – one project is tentatively called “Pretty Poision” and is a documenaty about dangerous chemicals in U.S. which is known to cause cancer and fertility problems and has banned by other countries.
Check out a few stills from the movie:
