SYNOPSIS: The "Summer Camp" horror trilogy was one of the most popular franchises of the 1980s. However, the decade ended and so did director Julian Barrett's career. Now Barrett plans to resurrect his gory series via a modern reboot patterned after reality filmmaking. With his former leading lady and an eclectic group of 10 young "contestants," Barrett returns to the same locale where his old splatter-fests were filmed. When one of the campers is found savagely murdered, they realize there's more at stake than just fame and fortune. Each of them is in a fight for their lives as they realize summer is over - forever.

Nearly 100 homeless individuals have come together to form Nashville's Tent City, which is located under a bridge close to the city's center. Tent City, U.S.A. explores this community, which is self-sustained and self-governed.

The latest in Spike Lee's Chronicles of Brooklyn anthology - which also includes "She's Gotta Have It" (1986), "Do The Right Thing" (1989), "Crooklyn" (1994), "Clockers" (1995), and "He Got Game" (1998) - RED HOOK SUMMER tells the story of Flik Royale (Jules Brown), a sullen young boy from middle-class Atlanta who has come to spend the summer with his deeply religious grandfather, Bishop Enoch Rouse (Clarke Peters), in the housing projects of Red Hook. Having never met before, things quickly get off on the wrong foot as Bishop Enoch relentlessly attempts to convert Flik into a follower of Jesus Christ. Between his grandfather's constant preaching and the culture shock of inner-city life, Flik's summer appears to be a total disaster - until he meets Chazz Morningstar (Toni Lysaith), a pretty girl his age, who shows Flik the brighter side of Brooklyn. Through her love and the love of his grandfather, Flik begins to realize that the world is a lot bigger, and perhaps a lot better, than he'd ever imagined.

Argot Pictures is proud to present the US theatrical release of 'The Topp Twins: Untouchable Girls' a documentary by Leanne Pooley. Winner of numerous awards, including Best Feature Documentary at New York's NewFest 2010 and the Cadillac People's Choice Award at the Toronto International Film Festival 2009 'The Topp Twins: Untouchable Girls' tells the story of the world's only comedic, singing, yodeling lesbian twin sisters, Lynda and Jools Topp, whose political activism and unique brand of entertainment has helped change New Zealand's social landscape. In the process they have become well-loved cultural icons. The film will open in New York at Cinema Village on May 13. Other cities will follow. This is the first time that the irrepressible Kiwi entertainment double act, Jools and Lynda Topp's extraordinary personal story has been told. As well as rarely seen archive footage and home movies, the film features a series of special interviews with some of the Topp's infamous comedy alter-egos including candid chats with the two Kens, Camp Mother and Camp Leader, the Bowling Ladies and the Posh Socialite sisters, Prue and Dilly. The Topp Twins have attained a unique status within New Zealand culture, and their fans range from hard core political activists, to sheep farmers and 'Ladies who Lunch'. Their ability to relate to all kinds of people, and their natural gift for humour, has helped them cross from the fringes to the mainstream. It has often been said that if the story of the Twins was fictional nobody would believe it. From rural backwaters to busking on the streets of Auckland, to performances at the Rugby World Cup and London's West End stage, their appeal is infectious. From support act to Split Enz, Billy Bragg, and Midnight Oil to headlining their own hugely successful tours in Australia, Canada, the USA and Britain. The twins have morphed from radical activists into Kiwi 'national treasures', 'cultural ambassadors', and finally, according to the Glasgow Herald, into New Zealand's 'finest artistic export since lamb cutlets!' 'The Topp Twins: Untouchable Girls' follows the girls from their happy childhood on a Waikato dairy farm - where they grew up singing to the cows - to the Territorial Army where they quickly became the Vera Lynns of their battalion. They came of age performing on the streets of Auckland during the heady days of the political protest marches in the early 80s, and quickly joined the forefront of progressive social change campaigning for a Nuclear-Free NZ, Maori Land Rights, a halt to the1981 Springbok Tour, and Homosexual Law Reform. By 1998 only a decade later, Lynda Topp, as Camp Mother, came close to winning the mayoral elections in Auckland, and the Topp Twins were firmly entrenched in the bosom of Kiwi culture with their own prime time TV Series 'Do Not Adjust Your Twinset'. 'The Topp Twins: Untouchable Girls' is not just the story of two sisters but also of 50 years of New Zealand history. Half a century of cultural changes and the foundation of a national identity. Part concert film, part biopic, part historical record, part comedy, the Twins share their journey from "coming out‟ to Jools' recent brush with Breast Cancer with much laughter, honesty and wisdom. It is a film about two truly unique New Zealanders, which ends up saying as much about us as it does about them. 'The Topp Twins: Untouchable Girls' is directed by award-winning ex BBC documentary filmmaker, Leanne Pooley. Director of Photography role was shared by Leon Narbey ('Whale Rider'); one of New Zealand's most acclaimed cinematographers, and Wayne Vinten, (Best Cinematography NZ Screen Awards 2008). The film was produced by Arani Cuthbert of Diva Productions, who has also managed the twins for much of their career and produced their popular TV series. -- (C) Argot

A slick investment advisor attempts to impress a prospective client by volunteering as a counselor at a camp for foster children, and begins to reassess his priorities after developing a bond with a young boy from a broken home in this tender drama inspired by actual events. Eli's mother is a drug addict, and his father is physically abusive. When police answer a domestic disturbance call at Eli's home on his 10th birthday, the young boy is placed in a youth facility where compliance takes precedence over compassion. Meanwhile, Ken Matthews is an investment banker with a bright future. In a calculated effort to dazzle his latest client, a wealthy heiress, Ken volunteers at a youth camp for at-risk children. There, he's paired with Eli. As the two settle into the cabin shared with compassionate counselor Samuel and his quirky charge Redford, it doesn't take long for Ken to realize that he's way out of his league. Eli sees right through Ken, and lashes out at him whenever possible. At first, Ken responds with frustration and anger. The more he learns about Eli's tragic past however, the more his heart goes out to him. In time Ken learns to love Eli unconditionally, a love that's soon challenged when the young boy's brutish father pays an unexpected visit to the camp. At that moment Eli's plight becomes real to Ken, prompting the once-neglectful counselor to do some serious soul searching, and make a sacrifice that could drastically alter the future of the boy who's stuck in a dangerous downward spiral. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

In 1919, Hart Crane said of Sherwood Anderson's Winesburg, Ohio: "America should read this book on her knees. It is a chapter in the Bible of her consciousness." The Last Soul on a Summer Night is a contemporary reinterpretation of the antique narrative with an African American cast and a dash of ecstatic reality. This critically acclaimed adaptation of one of the most highly regarded books in the history of American literature, tells the story, almost in mythical fashion, of lost and lonely souls taken to a Chicago Heights boarding house where layfolk and churchfolk alike struggle with their personal demons. It is a journey of self discovery where a man takes a truth to himself...

Two youngsters struggle in their own ways with the onset of adulthood in this drama from Argentine filmmaker Julia Solomonoff. Young Jorgelina (Guadalupe Alonso) has spent most of her summers traveling with her family, but she's become disenchanted with her big sister Luciana (Maria Clara Merendino), who is blossoming into a woman. Openly disgusted with the changes in her sister's attitude and appearance, Jorgelina doesn't want to spend another holiday with her, and she's instead sent to a cattle ranch, where she becomes fascinated with a young boy named Mario (Nicolas Treise). Mario works with the cattle hands, but he's a quiet youngster who keeps to himself and initially resists Jorgelina's offers of friendship. In time, the two get to know one another, and Mario shares a secret with her -- he's been raised as a boy, but he appears to have the sex organs of both a male and a female, and he's not sure what he is and what he should do about it. El Ultimo Verano De La Boyita (aka The Last Summer Of La Boyita) was an official selection at the 2010 San Francisco International LGBT Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
