LIFE\'S A BITCH! is a fast paced drama feature film with dark comical overtones. Filmed in Barcelona, Spain this is a European film with an American twist! Director Maria Galindo brings us a European film with an American twist! Three stories colliding in a barrage of bad decisions in Barcelona, Spain. There\'s Paula, a beautiful klepto who lives with her abusive, alcoholic brother Ramsey, she and her girlfriend Anna terrorize the streets of Barcelona stealing hearts, wallets and anything they can get their hands on. Then there\'s Molly and Christina, two working class women in a long term relationship very much in love.

This hard hitting, sexy drama full of dark humor and plenty of twists is guaranteed to entertain. Starring: Anneke Necro, Jessica Hernandez, Mad Pirvan, Irina Fernandez, Tony Corvillo, Oscar Gomez Co. Starring Sebi Alcaraz, Beatrice Vilaseca, Carmen Vilao, Eva Arias, Valentina Moreno Sanchez WITCH HOUR: Is a 18 minute Black & White Symphony of Horror with some good ol\' Dark Comedy! I put together this short after winning best director at the San Antonio, Texas, Horrific Film Fest 2016 for Life\'s A Bitch! as a thriller feature. It inspired me to make my first horror film, but of course I had to throw in some good old dark comedy. I was only back in Texas for 1 month before I decided to make a film with a dead line of coming back to Europe by Feb. 2nd 2017. I began in San Antonio, Texas on October 27th, 2017. It was written in 3 days, casted in 1 month and shot in 4 days. I continued once I arrived and completing the sound and edit by the end of February in Barcelona, Spain. Excited, for the world to see my new project and have many more scripts always looking for collaborators to make it happen! Director\'s note: I was born and raised in San Antonio, Texas, prior to making this film I\'d been a musician for many years of my life and also a photographer, but always had an interest in film. One day, while living in Barcelona, Spain, I woke up and said "it\'s now or never" and I started my journey creating this film with no experience, no crew and no funding. I purchased a camera and went on a year long search for the cast, which in the end was the perfect blend of raw talent and professional experience. I found half of my cast on the streets, bars and subways of Barcelona and the other half were local well known professionals. This being my first film I was quite surprised of how many professionals wanted the parts. Professional or not I was extremely picky to make sure that the person had that natural character I was looking for. Even though I had never done this before, I was determined to make my vision a reality. It then took me another year to film. When you don\'t have a crew but a large cast it\'s not an easy thing getting who I needed for my shots each day and trying to make it all work with locations and time schedules. With no money knowing I wouldn\'t have the luxury of reshoots with the time frame of 2 or 3 hours to use the location for free. I filmed down to the last moments before my flight out of Spain. It then took me a further year to edit all of the great footage and put it all together including scoring the film with many musicians from Texas, New York and Barcelona. I did acquire quite a bit of finagling on my part to make what I had work for this feature length film. -Maria Galindo

Naked Boys Reading: Curated By Alan Hollinghurst

NAKED BOYS READING: LOVE BETWEEN MEN CURATED BY ALAN HOLLINGHURST Thursday 27 July 2017 Doors: 19:30pm | Show: 20:00 6 advance sales | 8 on the door Naked Boys Reading is delighted to announce that acclaimed UK author Alan Hollinghurst will be curating our summer event at the Ace Hotel. When the Sexual Offences bill became law in England and Wales, fifty years ago this month, it at last became possible to write openly about love between men. This event celebrates that subject, partly in the new writing which then emerged, but also in private or clandestine texts going back to the 18th century - the extravagant love-letters of a famous courtier, a pornographic novel once attributed to Oscar Wilde, a story by E. M. Forster published only after his death. Then, in fiction and poetry of the past 25 years, we see writers exploring gay love as a subject in all its proper complexity. BOYS: Guiseppe Theo Ernesto Andrew Rowland WITH: Dr Sharon Husbands, Hostess The Duchess of Pork, Disc-Jockess VANEK Photography, Documentation About Alan: Alan Hollinghurst was born in Stroud in Gloucestershire, England in 1954 and was educated at Magdalen College, Oxford. He was on the staff of the Times Literary Supplement from 1982 to 1995. His acclaimed first novel, The Swimming-Pool Library (1988), gives a vivid account of London gay life in the early 1980s through the story of a young aristocrat, William Beckwith, and his involvement with the elderly Lord Nantwich, whose life he saves. It was followed by The Folding Star in 1994, which was shortlisted for the Booker Prize for Fiction and won the James Tait Black Memorial Prize (for fiction). The narrator, Edward Manners, develops an obsessive passion for his pupil, a 17-year-old Flemish boy, in a story that was compared by many critics to Thomas Manns novella Death in Venice. His novel, The Line of Beauty (2004), traces a decade of change and tragedy and won the 2004 Man Booker Prize for Fiction. He is currently completing a new novel.
