THE CONGRESS   03.04.14

SPACES is a proud community sponsor of THE CONGRESS (http://www.clevelandfilm.org/films/2014/the-congress) at the 38th Cleveland International Film Festival. From the CIFF site:

Ever wonder what Robin Wright (The Princess Bride, Forest Gump) has been up to the past couple years? Well, you're about to find out. Set in an alternate reality that could only come from the mind of Ari Folman, Robin Wright is about to sell her body to the Hollywood mega-studio "Miramount." (Sound familiar?) Miramount is going to scan every inch of her body and digitally control her image. They can cast her in any role they'd like: Oscar®-bait, sci-fi movies, even pornography. While the digitized Robin is out earning the studio massive profits, a new technology emerges: the ability to become other people through an advanced chemical form of virtual reality. Suddenly, Robin finds herself in a surreal animated world full of magical wonder and not-so-earthly delights. But as Robin falls further down the virtual rabbit hole, she also fades from the ones who love her most. Part live action and part spectacular animation, THE CONGRESS is an ambitious sci-fi allegory that reinvents itself at every turn. -C.P.

PressPausePlay: Cleveland International Film Festival   02.25.11

SPACES is a proud community sponsor of PressPausePlay (http://www.clevelandfilm.org/festival/films/2011/presspauseplay) at the 35th Cleveland International Film Festival. From the CIFF site:

PRESSPAUSEPLAY examines the digital revolution currently transforming our concept of art and culture. With the knowledgeable input of several well-known artists and authors of today, this documentary opens a discourse about the positive and negative effects technology has had on the industries of music, film, photography, and writing. As the tools to create become more affordable and easier to use, a democratization of art has evolved – essentially enabling anyone to be an artist, a musician, a filmmaker. Some believe that the digital age has revolutionized art for the better and that this is the most fertile time for artists. With the invention of the Internet and the explosion of social media, we are now witnessing more art than ever before. But with the democratization of a culture comes the danger of mediocrity and the threat of confusing the artist with the audience. It's becoming increasingly harder for true artists to break through all the noise and there's a very probable chance that real talent will be lost along the way. Featuring a powerful myriad of images, sounds, and icons, PRESSPAUSEPLAY is an awesomely relevant film you won't want to miss. –M.M.
