RAINY DAY FRIENDS

“Best Movie Stunt of the Year”International Stuntman Awards

“A well told, impressively directed and engaging story”Variety

Sometimes something ignites a spark in the human spirit. That’s the way it happens for handsome, hot-tempered Neekos Valdez and tough ex-fighter pilot Smiling Jack Marti. Confined to a large Los Angeles Hospital as a ward of the city, Neekos denies his illness and generally disrupts the Hospital routine. He escapes to the streets to face life alone… sick, hunted, and haunted, trusting no one, not even his family. Smiling Jack, a fellow patient, comes to his rescue. An unlikely friendship develops, and these two warriors, one a War Hero, one a bad-ass kid from the streets, unite forces to defeat both their illness and an uncaring system. Straightforward and refreshing, this independent classic offers a rare and extraordinary glimpse of the struggle for life and self.

THE PYRAMID

Gary Kent’s Hip 70s adventure through consciousness is back!

The Pyramid is a deeply moving spiritual record of its time that is just as relevant today.” The Boston Globe

“Recalls Haskell Wexler’s ground-breaking film MEDIUM COOL.” Los Angeles Times

A young TV news reporter grows tired of Commercial programming and decides to cover more positive stories. He is fired for his troubles, and goes on a personal search for truth and meaning. A voyage in consciousness for the millenium.

The Pyramid has a freshness of young faces that was a hallmark of 70’s era flix. Combined with the real movers and shakers in the “Consciousness Movement” and the contributions of major musical talents providing the film’s score, the cast and crew of The Pyramid remind you of why the l970’s were the last great gasp of the Independent movie as “Art Form.”
