Sandra Bullock is the voice of Golda Meir in the documentary **The Prime Ministers: The Pioneers,** which is given it's world premier this weekend for the **28th Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival (FLiFF28)**. Part of a historical series of documentaries by Academy Award winner Richard Trank, **The Prime Ministers** reveals details of the "6 Day" & "Yom Kippur" wars. This film also examines the strategic relationship between Israel and the United States.
With a literate title, themes about cultural differences with shot composition worthy of a Guggleheim Art Museum, "Chasing Shakespeare" is your typical "festival" entry.
"The Pin" is a minimalist motion picture that takes place in two separate time periods set in either the countryside or the morgue. This Canadian motion picture in Yiddish with English subtitles is a tale about a Shomer, a religious watchman who is responsible for guarding the recently deceased. As fate would have it, this Shomer is reunited with the corpse of this long, lost love. The film flashes back to more innocent times when this couples were refugees hiding in an abandon farmhouse.
It is amazing to me that an industry like the film culture consistenly makes films that are anticaptialist. Based on a French novel by Stéphane Osmont, "Capital" is a film directed by Costa Gravas, an international director best known for left of center films like "Missing," "Z" and "State of Seige." The film opens on a golf course in which a bank CEO dies. Marc Tourneuil (Gad Elmaleh) becomes the heir apparent and flies to Fort Lauderdale for a business deal. Upon returning, Marc is given the task of firing his employees to receive a substantial bonus.
