WRITERS: Ryan Sheridan & Alex Bains

Logline:

As a kind-hearted college graduate struggling with mental illness, it’s easy for Heather to turn a blind eye to the unsettling behavior of a family member. After all, what could her frail, elderly grandmother be capable of?

Synopsis:

After an accident leaves her mother in critical condition, Heather clings to what family she has left by taking care of her mentally unwell grandmother, Rose. Heather wants to enjoy the summer with her friends but is forced to juggle managing her grandmother’s unsettling, and at times violent, behaviour with keeping her own psychological health in check. Soon Heather realizes she cannot care for her grandmother alone and hires Nick, a charming and patient caregiver who comes to take care of Rose.

The day comes for a long anticipated party. A multitude of friends and acquaintances have shown up for what will no doubt be a wild night. Accompanied by Sam, Heather for once seems to be enjoying her time in the house. Her enjoyment is quickly halted when confronted by her aggressive ex- boyfriend in a secluded bathroom. Things are made hauntingly worse when Rose appears.

This > RA: Real Scenes : Tokyo > Speaks to me on so many levels.

This episode of Real Scenes, About The Tokyo Underground, peaks to me on so many levels.

RA: Real Scenes: Tokyo.

“Humans eat, reproduce and sleep,” says Dommune’s Naohiro Ukawa. “And they dance.” But in Japanese clubs these days, this basic form of expression is illegal. The Entertainment Business Control Law, or Fueiho as it is commonly known, was passed decades ago to control prostitution in the Japanese entertainment industry. It states that venues under 66 meters squared cannot obtain a license to allow dancing. For years authorities turned a blind eye to the club scene in Tokyo, which became known as one of the world’s best places to hear dance music. But over the last couple of years, the police have begun to stringently clamp down. There are many theories as to why this happened (most people see the restrictions in Osaka, which began in 2010, as a starting place for the enforcement of Fueiho) but the result is that a once vibrant scene is now being slowly strangled. 


For our latest Real Scenes films, we journey to the Japanese capital to meet the DJs, promoters, campaigners and producers who have been affected by the Fueiho. We hear how a rapidly aging population and the negative public perception of nightclubs have meant that fighting for reform is just part of the problem. Despite these extraordinary challenges, Tokyo is home to a passionate, dedicated dance music community, who have responded with campaign groups like Let’s DANCE, and the establishment of small, underground music spaces. There is a collective understanding that if they want to affect change it will have to come from within.

Indians and Aliens | APTN.

The number of encounters with unidentified flying objects (UFOs) in the vast, remote Cree territory of northern Quebec are growing. Indians and Aliens investigates these phenomena and explores credible witness accounts with scientists and other experts in an attempts to open up possible explanations. But there are eye-witness reports that defy rational thought. Some think it’s merely lights and blots in the skies, but for others, it represents something else… something other worldly.

Indians & Aliens is a 6-part, half- hour documentary series structured around remarkable encounters with unidentified flying objects (UFOs) in the vast, remote Cree territory of northern Quebec.   Director Ernest Webb sets out on a northerly quest to investigate the growing amount of reports that come from his homeland.  “One thing is certain, with all the stories filtering in from the different communities, from so many different people, something is out there. The question is: what and who?”

Many UFO sightings are explainable, and through the exploration of credible witness accounts with scientists and other experts we will attempt to open up possible explanations. But there also eye-witness reports that defy rational thought.

“Under certain circumstances, normal things can appear to be quite unusual.  But in some cases, there are just NO explanations. ”  – Palmiro Campagna, UFOlogist.

For a lot of people, the phenomena being witnessed in the north are merely lights and blots in the skies, but for others, they represent something else…something other worldly.

An aboriginal view of the universe, with a mix of, science, military history, and spiritual exploration of the unknown, Indians & Aliens is the James Bay Cree contribution to the global dialogue on UFOs.
