GIMME SHELTER – Interview with Writer/Director Rob Krauss and Inspiration Kathy DiFiore.

I recently got the chance to speak with Director Ron Krauss about his new film “Gimme Shelter” and the Inspiration for the film Kathy DiFiore, who is the Founder of Several Sources Shelters. The movie focuses on a teenager named Apple who runs away from her abusive home. Upon realizing she has become pregnant, she is forced to decide what she wants for her future. Stay in a broken home? or throw yourself out into the unknown? This is a very different role for Vanessa Hudgens, going to great lengths in this film to shed her former Disney image. I’d say she succeeded. Ron recounts; “some of the viewing press have had trouble identifying who Vanessa was in the film!” And I’d have to agree. For a moment there, It took a while to click in that this abused girl on the big screen was Hudgens herself. The character is miserable! everything has gone wrong, she cant improve her situation and Just when she thinks nobody can help her, life throws her a second chance. Its a storyline which Ron Felt Passionate about telling, and one which Kathy experienced first hand growing up. As she says “I went through an abusive relationship, and I’d had enough! I just walked out. I only had the clothes on my back, and consequently I became homeless. I lost my dignity, and I had to speak to people I’d never have spoken to.” However, Kathy ended up changed for the better, she has gone on to help countless people who are in need of a shelter.

The story of Apple resonates with me because it weaves together bits and pieces of the social construct which I see everyday walking down the street. I live in a part of the US where Homeless youth are everywhere. You’ll see them asking for change on every corner, sleeping at the park or hanging around selling drugs. They have many stories but they represent just a small fraction of a larger demographic which spans all across America. Much like Apple or Kathy, many kids and young adults are victims of bad circumstances. We have to understand the underlying issues of homelessness if we are to try and address the issue. Truth is, of most of the adults I know are only a couple of pay checks away from being homeless themselves. So why be ignorant to the cause? The first step towards finding a solution is to generate awareness. This film does a good job at introducing the subject while remaining entertaining. The hope is that this film can give a behind the scenes look into the life of a person who has found themselves on the outskirts of society, and as Ron says, “hopefully the audience will then gain compassion and we can begin to work towards a solution. The film comes out Jan 24th! Make sure you check it out!

Meanwhile, In our Universe; I sit down with Danny Trejo for a chat on what it was like to film his second Machete Movie. Possibly the most badass and intimidating actor I’ve had the pleasure of interviewing. Machete Kills is truly worth a watch. Especially if you know what to expect from Director Robert Rodriguez [Sin City, Spy Kids, Grindhouse]

After threatening my life, I received one hell of a gift. Machete’s autographed Machete! Seriously Awesome, and a press junket I wont forget any time soon!

THE SUMMIT- Interview with Director NICK RYAN & Climber PEMBA GYALJE SHERPA

The Summit is a bone chilling Documentary about the events which unfolded In August, 2008. What many say is the deadliest day in modern mountain climbing history. 18 mountain climbers reached the top of K2. 48 hours later, 11 people were dead. While memorials paid tribute to those killed, there were also condemnations about ‘the why.’ Why do these athletes risk everything to reach a place humans are simply not meant to go? The Summit is about the very nature of adventure in the Modern World.
Plot Outline
In August of 2008, 22 climbers from several international expeditions converged on High Camp of K2, the last stop before the summit of the most dangerous mountain on Earth. 48 hours later, eleven had been killed or simply vanished into thin air. Like a horror movie come-to-life, it was as if the mountain began stealing lives, one climber at a time.

At the feet of the heavens the body is literally dying with each passing second and the mind can play tricks. Morality in the death zone, above 8,000 metres, is skewed 180 degrees from the rest of life. When a climber falls or wanders off the trail, the unwritten code of the sport is to leave them for dead. Survival depends on self-preservation at all costs.

At the heart of The Summit lies a mystery about one extraordinary man, Ger McDonnell, the first Irishman to summit K2. His team leader left him behind in the death zone. His best friend on the mountain searched in vain to find him, rescuing several others. Ger’s final moments have been called into question by the last climber to talk to him alive. By all accounts, he was faced with a heart-breaking dilemma— at the very limit of his mortal resources, he stumbled onto a disastrous scene: three climbers tangled up in ropes and running out of time. Had Ger McDonnell stuck to the climbers’ code, he might still be alive.

In a century of assaults on K2, only about 300 people have ever seen the view from the second highest peak on the planet. More than a quarter of those who made it didn’t live long enough to share the glory or even tell the tale. They were killed simply trying to get down. The Summit is about the very nature of modern adventure. Those who survive carry with them a commodity to sell, The Story. This one remains contentious and fiercely debated, at the expense of the memory of Ger McDonnell and the 10 others who died with him. In this way, the monster of K2 feeds itself. As the legend grows, new climbers are drawn to test themselves against the deadliest mountain on Earth.

The Summit is told with all the tension, pace and suspense of a Hollywood narrative. The visual experience will put the audience in the boots of those facing life and death decisions on the mountain and show how a band of like-minded adventurers can be torn apart by the elements and the glory at hand.
