Captain Blackout is a 2013 TV pilot from Hellespont Films and directed by Matthew Panepinto.

Captain Blackout tells the story of James Black (Dann Florek) who miraculously awakens from three decades of unconsciousness to find a drastically altered reality.

Only two pillars of stability remain: a rational therapist twenty years his junior (Chris Papavasiliou), and the downtown club where James’s most sacred memories remain.

Starring Dann Florek, Diane Neal, Tamara Tunie, Chris Papavasiliou, Lawton Paskea, Christine Kelly, Charlie Heydt and Jim Conroy.

Music by Henrik Åström.

Migration

posted in: Dance, Short Films | 0

A hybrid experimental piece that integrates dance and the choreography of space within the structure of narrative film. The film portrays immigration as a dehumanizing process executed by an indifferent bureaucratic machine. It follows a young immigrant woman, waiting her turn to see the bureaucrat in-charge of her case.

The camera delves into the world of paper work and investigates, through movement and multiple points of view, alienated interpersonal relationships as they are molded by the structure of space the bureaucratic machine operates in. Space is deconstructed and reconstructed in an attempt to reach a reference point for the bureaucratic world and to connect the un-connectable – the gap between those who seek aid and those who are trying to give it.

 

Directed by Daphna Mero

Music and Sound Design by Henrik Åström

Awards and prizes:

Special Jury Award, SHORT to the Point, Romania.
Award Winner, Best Experimental Short Film, Lanus International Film Festival, Argentina.
