    A filmmaker's journey. A conversation with "Unbroken Glass" Director Dinesh Sabu

    Click on the photo above to listen to our conversation

    Heart Fire Film correspondent Richard Gedney speaks with documentary Film Director Dinesh Sabu about his new and very personal film,"Unbroken Glass."

     

    When he was six-years-old, Dinesh Das Sabu’s parents died. Raised by his older siblings, he had little idea who his parents were or where he came from. Through making UNBROKEN GLASS, he attempts to piece together their story and his own. Uncovering a silenced family history and disturbing truths, Dinesh and his siblings must finally reconcile the past, confronting the trauma of losing their parents and the specter of mental illness. UNBROKEN GLASS weaves together Das Sabu’s journey of discovery with cinema-verite scenes of his family dealing with still raw emotions and consequences of his immigrant parents’ lives and deaths. The film was shot over five years in Illinois, New Mexico, California, and India.

    Space Opera Studios: A future enhanced!

    Legion M's creation of a fan funded studio has me thinking of Eric Bernard. The man behind the *Space Opera Society. A group ahead of it's time, which was created a number of years ago. Eric's idea was to gather top industry professionals in Canada, America and the UK to create a fan funded Science Fiction Studio. Their first project was to be titled Moonbase Alpha's: Legacy. A continuation of the Science Fiction series Space: 1999 which was produced in the mid- nineteen seventies. It ran for two seasons and has since then been viewed on television stations throughout the world.

     

    So the plan was to produce their first film, Moonbase Alpha's:Legacy and then move on to producing weekly Science Fiction programing which would be streamed to FANS who had subscribed / funded the studio. Concept artwork was even created by Eric Chu, highlighting the look and feel of the various shows they were looking to create. Space Opera Society's creative team included TV and Film professionals , Wes Sargent, Eric Chu, Roberto Mei ,Christopher Penfold , Michele Specht, Nick Tate and many other well regarded Television and Film professionals.
     

    Unfortunately the fan funded studio never came to fruition. However you can't keep a good team down. The team is currently in the process of developing a new Science Fiction series titled Helios. Creative minds that come together tend to stay together. Good luck and god speed to Eric Bernard and his team at Space Opera Studios!

    *Space Opera Society is now known as "Space Opera Studios.

    The End of the Game - Film by David Graham Scott

    Scotland to Africa. The journey of the Big Game Hunter and the Vegan. "The End of the Game" originally started off as a character study and morphed over time into a feature documentary. The film starts in the Scottish Highlands were we meet Sir. Guy Wallace. A game warden who lives a rustic lifestyle, compatible to someone living in the 19th century. We follow along, as he prepares for his last big hunt. Starting in the far north of Scotland, near Caithness, John o'Groats. Then on to the hunt itself on a big game preserve in South Africa.

     

    Sir Guy Wallace, the focus of the film, is a subject of the British Empire who conquered most of the world, one of the last of his kind. Sir Guy enjoys a rustic and healthy lifestyle as meat eater, who thinks nothing of drinking from rain barrels. Where as Mr. Scott has been a big city dweller and staunch vegan for many years, even going to the streets of London to protest animal cruelty.

     

    Through this unique and poetic journey they create a friendship that we can all learn from, especially in these divided times. Befriending those who are different begins the process of learning to respect one another. That it is possible to revel in our differences and actually overcome them. Bravo Mr. Scott for showing us that at the End of the Game there can be very real understanding & friendship in diversity.
