LOS ANGELES, CA (JULY 2018) Desde el pasado 14 de
junio, todas las noches y hasta el amanecer —que sucede
alrededor de las 3:30 am— las calles de Moscú se llenan de
aficionados contentos o tristes, o esperanzados según sea
el caso de su selección. Pero esta noche fue diferente. Los
aficionados, miles de aficionados, que no eran mexicanos
festejaban en la Plaza Roja, comentando el partido. Se
mostraban verdaderamente contentos y era en particular
por un asunto: el triunfo mexicano. Sorprendida la Fifa, con
un "Wow" que tuiteó en su cuenta oficial. Sorprendido
México también, sobre todo después de tanto desbarajuste
con la organización y la estrategia del técnico, Juan Carlos
Osorio, durante las últimas semanas con la selección, y
también con la fiesta que se cargaron Memo Ochoa, Dos
Santos, Salcedo y Gallardo, entre otros, la semana pasada
con pretexto de un cumpleaños... pero también sorprendido
el mundo entero…. Continue.

MOSCOW, RUSSIA (JULY 13, 2018) France have won the
2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™ after defeating Croatia 4-2
in a thoroughly entertaining Final at the Luzhniki Stadium in
Moscow in what was a fitting end to an outstanding
tournament. Despite Croatia having the majority of
possession in the opening stages, France took the lead in
somewhat fortuitous circumstances. Antoine Griezmann's
lofted free kick from the French right was nodded into his
own net by Mario Mandzukic.
Ivan Perisic levelled with a calm effort from the edge of the
penalty area, but he would turn from hero to villain. A cross
from the French right-hand side was handled by the Croatia
No4, with a penalty awarded after a VAR review. After the
interval, France increased their lead through Paul Pogba,
whose performances in the tournament deserved a goal in
its finale. After Kylian Mbappe stretched the Croatian

LOS ANGELES, CA (JAN. 21, 2019) In 2015 our team
produced 50 Feet from Syria - focused on the civilian
impact of the Syrian conflict. This was the first of a triad of
films focused on one of the great humanitarian crises of
our time – the plight of refugees in a global and intercon-
nected world. In a political environment increasingly hostile
to immigrants and refugees, documenting the real-life plight
of those fleeing war and oppression is more vital and im-
portant than ever. LIFEBOAT bears witness to refugees
desperate enough to risk their lives in rubber boats leaving
Libya in the middle of the night, despite a high probability of
drowning. With few resources but certain that civil society
must intervene, volunteers from a German non-profit risk
the waves of the Mediterranean to pluck refugees from
sinking rafts. In a real-life context with dire consequences,
LIFEBOAT puts a human face on one of the world’s
greatest contemporary, global crises and provides a
spark of hope surrounding how civil society can intervene
in the refugee crisis in a meaningful way.

the film tells the story of Waad al-Kateab’s life through
five years of the uprising in Aleppo, Syria as she falls in
love, gets married and gives birth to Sama, all while cat-
aclysmic conflict rises around her.
Her camera captures incredible stories of loss, laughter
and survival as Waad wrestles with an impossible
choice–whether or not to flee the city to protect her
daughter’s life, when leaving means abandoning the
struggle for freedom for which she has already sac-
rificed so much. The film is the first feature documentary
by Emmy award-winning filmmakers, Waad al-Kateab
and Edward Watts.

ductions / Miracle are thrilled to announce the release
of RAPID RESPONSE, a fascinating documentary about
the pioneering of safety and medical standards in motor-
sports, in selected theaters September 6, 2019. Rapid
Response is a fast-paced documentary that tells the
story of medical and safety professionals who refused
to accept the high mortality rate among American race
car drivers, fundamentally altering the history of motor-
sports. In 1966 Medical student and racing fan Stephen
Olvey gets the opportunity of a lifetime when he is asked
to volunteer at the Indianapolis 500 on their medical team.
What started as a fun insider view of a sport he loved
quickly devolves before his eyes as he sees the level
of medical support given to the drivers, whom he has
befriended, is terrifyingly non-existent. Once a doctor,
Olvey set off on a mission to revolutionize motorsports,
taking it from one of the most fatal sports to one of the
safest. Rapid Response traces the roots of safety at the
Indianapolis Motor Speedway in the 60s … Continue
