ALA KACHUU - Take and Run
How Much We Feel
In an effort to elude foreign government officials, Grandmaster Park's parents escaped to the northern hills, dropping their son off at a Buddhist Monastery along the way, knowing that they could not properly look after their 8 year old while on the run. For the next decade, he learned ancient hand to hand fighting techniques, the tenets of which he used to form his special brand of TaeKwonDo that he used to dominate national and international martial arts. To this day, he remains the only undefeated TaeKwonDo champion with over 200 wins to his credit.
With South Korea finally free from foreign rule in the 1950s, the government constructed a variety of strategies to introduce itself to the world. One the strategies was bringing its national martial art, TaeKwonDo, to the masses. Grandmaster Park was integral to that strategy. After leading South Korea to an epic win in an international competition against rival Japan in 1965, Grandmaster Park was asked to go to America to help the superpower learn both the physical and spiritual beauty of their martial art. In the 1970s and 1980s Grandmaster Park helped to open a series of Dojangs in the New York/New Jersey area and in Florida. Grandmaster Park was so successful that, in 1992, he was asked to coach the USA TaeKwonDo Olympic team that competed in Barcelona, Spain, and won the gold medal. Amazingly, at the age of 80, he continues to train "future champions" from his home Dojang in Jersey City, NJ, as well as self-defense programs he teaches at both West Point and the Naval Academy.
Besides chronicling this incredible immigrant success story, we also wanted to do our part in highlighting the beauty of an Asian story. With the rise in Asian Hate crime happening in 2021, we are hoping to humanize Asian culture with this inspiring piece. And ideally get enough exposure via this Film Festival run to convert this short film into a full documentary feature.
As Johnny, who perfected debauchery and gluttony for the mafia, starts making inquiries and accusations, the carnage begins to pile up. But as shipments continue to go missing, paranoia starts to get the better of Jimmy.
Hells Kitchen blurs the line between fiction and fact and plays on the purported connection certain celebrities, politicians, and corporate power brokers had with the mob and with each other. Hells Kitchen, a film that might have some truth to it.

"High School: 50 Years On"
This is a documentary about the high school class of 1969 from Washington High School in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Interviewed on the occasion of their 50th anniversary class reunion, they tell stories about themselves, their friends, dating, parents, and teachers. As in time travel, we are at the same time in their present at age 68, and at just 18 years old, recalling laughter and tears from high school that are still part of them today. This may be the ultimate baby-boomer documentary.
Their stories are, by turns, funny, sad, surprising, and moving. Ultimately, these are stories about resilience of the human spirit in the face of challenges on the journey from childhood to adulthood.
Everyone who has been through high school will find some part of themselves in these stories: victory and defeat, love and loss, and growth.

A girl fell in love with a dolphin. The forbidden love was discovered by the villagers and aroused their anger. They brought a nautical chart and set out to hunt the dolphin (just like the witch and vampire hunt in the medieval period). In the end, the dolphin was killed; the girl went crazy. Ten months later, the girl gave birth to a half- man half-fish creature. This might be the origin of the mermaid legend.

In the Heart of the Machine
August 1978. Kremikovtsy Steel Plant. Heat, iron, dust and the pervasive smell of oil. A typical workday of a crew of maximum security inmates will prove to be fateful for all of them. They find something extraordinary inside one of the machines and an unexpected wave of compassion makes the prisoners take hostages and block the entrance to the workshop. The men risk their lives willingly because sometimes the desire to be human is stronger than the survival instinct. And the dream of salvation blurs common sense.
