Kornel Mundruczo’s newest film is a story of the indignities visited upon animals by their supposed “human superiors,” but it’s also an brutal, beautiful metaphor for the political and cultural tensions sweeping contemporary Europe. When young Lili is forced to give up her beloved dog Hagen, because it’s mixed-breed heritage is deemed ‘unfit’ by The State, she and the dog begin a dangerous journey back towards each other. At the same time, all the unwanted, unloved and so-called ‘unfit’ dogs rise up under a new leader, Hagen, the one-time housepet who has learned all too well from his ‘Masters’ in his journey through the streets and animal control centers how to bite the hands that beats him …

in the 1980s George Lucas was talking about garage filmmakers and how they were going to change the world I think it happened we're in this to pay homage to something that really inspired us all it's a testament to how powerful your work is if other people want to recreate it I think the line between being a fan and being a celebrity is totally blurred the Internet has changed the entertainment industry drastically you don't really need to go to Hollywood and convince some big dude in this suit to give you some money all you need is the support of people that believe in what you're doing people have always taken the stories that were significant to them and retold them the difference is that the stories today belong to the studio's they can collect it they can appreciate it they can fantasize about it but they can't steal it it's a question of can you afford a half million dollar in legal film because if you can't we're gonna pulverize you it's still the Wild West out there because I think everybody's still asking themselves how do I get noticed and how do I make money from getting noticed you

As the United States and Cuba move toward normal relations for the first time in more than 54 years, a remarkable documentary film profiles a unique collection of people who are pushing the boundaries and ‘Reinventing Cuba.”
The one hour documentary film, “Reinventing Cuba,” goes beyond the stereotypes – beyond cigars and salsa, beyond mojitos and Malecón, beyond antique American cars and decaying architecture to reveal an extraordinary nation eager to embrace change.
Correspondent Gerry Hadden – a long time Cuba watcher – takes viewers on a personal journey. He meets little league sluggers defying the odds and dreaming of the majors; doctors and medical researchers saving lives; hustlers finding ways around limited internet connections; artists and designers at the height of creativity; and black marketeers selling a vital entertainment and information device called “the package.”
Cut off from America by decades of hostility, living in conditions of scarcity and political restrictions, the Cubans emerge here as a people making something out of nothing with whatever is at hand.
Hadden portrays vibrant, hopeful, and resourceful characters facing enormous challenges in today’s Cuba. He reveals an often overlooked, burgeoning, middle class that is at the forefront of what will likely be Cuba’s future as it moves into a new era.
The documentary is directed by Humberto Duran; filmed by Amando Guerra and Josep Alfero. It is produced by the North American production center of China Central Television: CCTV America. Executive Producers are Ma Jing, Mei Yan and Guo Chun. Senior Consultant and adviser on the film: Jim Laurie

in the right hands a comic-strip attains a beauty and an elegance that really I put against any other art the comics page is the one last bastion really happy thoughts words and pictures are just magical been around forever comics gonna be a beautiful work art can be an amazing work literature and as long as newspapers are in business there will be a place for syndicated comic strips it is a dark day for the newspaper industry the Rocky Mountain News the oldest paper in Colorado printed its last issue today after failing to find a buyer and other papers could suffer the same fate it's a little scary for us because we're cartoonists you know we're not find an Sears and we're not entrepreneurs generally imagine if you're us I made it in syndication I did something that is a one in a 36,000 I got an EMBA all of a sudden the stadium is collapsing get with the times little man if anything I feel like we're in a rebirth of comics right now I don't think that web comics are the answer that's dollars the web is painters all I've done is I've eliminated all the middlemen this is how people consume things they don't read newspapers anymore this going through a period of transition that has yet to really shake our the tide is shifting in two different directions it's actually more about independent artists versus the artists working for a corporation sparking and say if I'm drawing Snoopy dancing I'm thinking a happy dance the day the first strip ran I hid in the ladies room and just prayed that nobody would open the paper that day now the interesting part at sink we're all cartooning is going I don't know where the cartoons are going to go Scott what's the future of comics
