Chuck Berry: Brown Eyed Handsome Man

DSL’s avail mid-June 2020. DVD w/PPR Shipping late August 2020.

An electrifying review of legendary singer-songwriter Chuck Berry, whose charisma and talents defined rock and roll and transcended both genre and color lines. “Brown Eyed Handsome Man” is a historic record of the continuing impact of the father of Rock ‘N Roll. Featuring the Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Springsteen, Petty, Hendrix, Ronstadt and more.

Hosted and narrated by Danny Glover, screened at the Grammy Museum and the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, broadcast on PBS as part of a pledge drive, the DVD version of the film includes a rarely seen 26 minute interview with Chuck from German television as a bonus.

In an interview with Rolling Stone, Chuck Berry agent Dick Alen said “This program does a terrific job of showcasing him live in concert throughout a variety of eras of his career, and it’s a wonderful tribute to see these fellow legends performing his songs. Seeing it all together really drives home how many artists he influenced and that rock & roll wouldn’t have been what it was if it wasn’t for Chuck Berry.”

In an interview with Billboard, Alen stated “Chuck never tried to influence anybody and he never tried to be a teacher. He just did his music his way, and people like Keith Richards and on and on heard his music. It was their inspiration.”

Holy Boom

Three deliveries will never arrive when a random explosion connects the stories of strangers who must seek a way to survive on the edge of legality.

HOLY BOOM is a dramatic feature film with multiple story-lines. It takes place in a multicultural area of Athens during orthodox Easter. The lives of four strangers, who live in the same neighborhood, change when, on Palm Sunday, the neighborhood’s postbox is blasted just for laughs. The consequences are relentless.

“Director Lafi nudges harsher elements of the story toward forgiveness in the face of betrayal, and leaves the impression of a city redeemed by unexpected pockets of compassion.” – Gene Siskel Film Center

The “strength of the film lies in its cast, which makes the premise feel natural despite some of the more…gruesome moments.” – Marissa De La Cerda, Chicago Reader

  • Winner: Orpheus Award for Best Director , Los Angeles Greek Film Festival
  • Winner: Audience Award, V Festival Internacional de Cine de Calzada de Calatrava
  • Winner: Best Balkan Film, Tirana International Film Festival

The cast features Samuel Akinola (Cloud), Kostas Antalopoulos (Death of the Father), Luli Bitri (Water for the Roses) and the debut of Spiros Ballesteros.

“Holy Boom is equal parts cultural study, gripping plot, and character development exercise. Like many such films, it offers the viewer a window into a central truth: the seeds of human civilization and compassion transcend even the most rigid borders.” – S. Lyons, The Sound View
