THIS IS IMPORTANT.
wow.. the fucking story line. speechless.
It’s such an important time for this film to come out.
It’s so easy for the film idustry to show people we fought against in the past as real people. But it’s something new to put a face a name and a story to the people that so many of us see as the enemy.
Please watch the trailer. This’ll stir up a lot of shit with the american public but I have a good feeling about this movie.
No. Y’all need to stop. This is a vehicle for a white bitch’s reactions to the plight of a person of colour and not at all about said person of colour. I can promise you right now that this movie will not accurately or respectfully portray Middle Easterners or Islam and I’m also pretty sure that the Ali Amir character is meant to be Arab while the actor portraying him is Iranian because, LOL, all brown people people are interchangeable!
Fuck this white nonsense
yes, this has all the makings of another white savior film.. hope i’m wrong.
i will say, however, to your point about the actor portraying ali amir being iranian (persian) - most prisoners are from saudi arabia, afghanistan, yemen, & pakistan. there was one iranian prisoner, but he was repatriated in 2004 after being held for ~2 years. but my point is that the prisoners in guantanamo come from all over the world.
i don’t know enough about this film to know the details of the character peyman moaadi is playing, but i would assume living most of his life in iran would give him a better cultural perspective on the role than others, even if he is not an arab.
lastly, i haven’t seen a separation, but i’ve heard moaadi was absolutely fantastic in the role. so, maybe that casting choice isn’t as problematic as you think it is.
.. or maybe it will be a giant, damaging, piece of shit movie. i don’t know.

this is the 1st look trailer for my very talented boyfriend’s web series: TALENTS. it tells the stories of film obsessed art house theatre employees living in los angeles.
he’s worked so incredibly hard writing this project, funding it entirely via kickstarter, assembling an incredible cast and crew, directing and acting in it all in less than a month’s time, and now editing it.
in this day and age word of mouth is EVERYTHING in supporting independent filmmakers. it would mean so much to me if you would take the time to watch the trailer.
if you like what you see, please know how very important the simple act of posting on facebook/tweeting/reblogging/emailing your friends this trailer helps this project succeed.
please take 2 minutes to watch (and, if you like, share!). you’ll be promoting a young, diverse cast and crew of up-and-coming filmmakers!!
also, to stay in the loop about this project like/follow on:

Last fall, Sylvan Esso’s Nick Sanborn was commissioned by Duke University and Alverno Presents in Milwaukee to put together a special concert with some of his favorite artists and collaborators. The result was a two-night stand that featured Sanborn and Sylvan Esso singer Amelia Meath performing alongside members of Sanborn’s other band, Megafaun and Meath’s former band, Mountain Man, as well as the group Field Report and Lambchop’s William Tyler. Together they shared mostly acoustic versions of a number of Sylvan Esso songs, including this cut from the band’s self-titled, debut record, “Wolf.”
Shot in black and white, it’s a surprisingly intimate and arresting arrangement of a song originally scored with throbbing electronics.
this is.. good.
