Festival Screenings Just Added , LA Film Festival 2012

* Festival Screenings Just Added *
Due to popular demand, the following titles have been added to the schedule for the last half of the Los Angeles Film Festival.

Ballads, Blues, and Bluegrass ADDED SCREENING: Friday, June 22, 7:50 pm
Filmed in 1961 but never released until now, this impromptu concert film, shot by famed music archivist Alan Lomax in his West Village apartment, captures amazing performances by Roscoe Holcolm, Doc Watson, Willie Dixon, Jack Elliott and others.

It’s a Disaster ADDED SCREENING: Saturday, June 23, 2:30 pm
Assembled for their regular Sunday brunch, a clique of hip Angelinos become hilariously entangled in a web of personal drama so complex they hardly notice the apocalypse is knocking on their front door.

A Band Called Death ADDED SCREENING: Saturday, June 23, 9:20 pm
Equal parts electrifying rockumentary and inspiring family chronicle, this is the captivating and little known story of the Hackney brothers and their band Death, the best punk band the world almost never heard.

The Iran Job ADDED SCREENING: Sunday, June 23, 3:20 pm
An American pro basketball player signs up for a season with upstart Iranian Super League team A.S. Shiraz. This sports documentary takes a surprising turn when this gregarious charmer meets three strong Iranian women fighting the repressive regime.

Dead Man’s Burden ADDED SCREENING: Saturday, June 23, 1:00 pm
This tense, classically crafted indie Western, set in the aftermath of the Civil War, starts with a startling act of violence: a daughter shoots down her father on the open range. Then her long lost brother returns. This is not going to be just any old family reunion.

Birth Story: Ina May Gaskin and The Farm Midwives ADDED SCREENING: Saturday, June 23, 7:20 pm
Ina May Gaskin and the courageous midwives of the Farm commune inspired the modern midwifery movement. This beguiling documentary tells their empowering story with depth, intelligence and wit.

Juan of the Dead ADDED SCREENING: Saturday, June 23, 10:00 pm
The streets of Havana are alive with the undead in Cuba’s first zombie comedy, a wild and bloody romp that sinks its sharp satirical teeth into the Cuban body politic. Castro may not be amused, but you will be.

The Iran Job, Kevin Sheppard, A film by Till Schauder, LA Film Festival

DUE TO POPULAR DEMAND, A THIRD SCREENING OF THE IRAN JOB HAS BEEN ADDED AT LAFF – Sunday, June 24 at 3:30 PM
Regal Cinemas L.A. LIVE

The Iran Job
A film by Till Schauder
Featuring Professional Basketball player Kevin Sheppard
Sunday, June 17th at 6:50 PM
Regal Cinemas L.A. LIVE 8
Q&A with Till Schauder and Kevin Sheppard after tonight’s screening

When American basketball player Kevin Sheppard accepts a job to play in one of the world’s most feared countries – Iran – he expects the worst. But what he finds is a country brimming with generosity, acceptance, and sensuality. With a charismatic personality that charms everyone he meets, Kevin forms an unlikely friendship with three outspoken Iranian women who share with him their strong opinions on everything from politics to religion to gender roles.

Kevin’s season in Iran eventually culminates in something much bigger than basketball: the uprising and subsequent suppression of Iran’s reformist Green Movement – a powerful prelude to the sweeping changes currently unfolding across the Middle East in the wake of the Arab Spring.

In THE IRAN JOB director Till Schauder reveals the human, often humorous, and sometimes heartbreaking sides of Iran, giving us access to a country usually hidden in mystery. The film’s soundtrack features some of the most cutting-edge Iranian rap and hip-hop artists, including Shahin Najafi, Jaduguaran, and ZedBazi. The Kickstarter campaign to fund the film was one of the most successful crowd-funding campaigns since the site’s launch, generating major media hits and donations for finishing funds from all over the world.

THE IRAN JOB is directed by Till Schauder and produced by Schauder and Sara Nodjoumi. The film is Executive Produced by Abigail Disney and co-produced by Michael Reuter and Rebekka Garrido. Editing is by David Teague, with original music by Kareem Roustom.
