Director Apolline Traore's Film "Frontières" Selected by French Institute for Distribution Among Its Cultural Network

Frontières (Borders) is an award-winning feature film directed by Burkinabe Apolline Traore. The suspense drama focuses on the intense journey of four women who face injustices and sexual harassment while crossing borders to trade goods.

Staying true to her roots, Director Apolline Traore shot her film entirely on the locations depicted in the storyline from Burkina Faso, Senegal to Nigeria.

Frontières (Borders), winner of the 2018 Pan African Film Festival in the USA, gets cultural support of 96 French Institutes and more than 800 French Alliances

I tell real stories. Frontieres focuses on a 7-day adventure of four enterprising women crossing 5 borders without fear, from Senegal to Nigeria, while fighting against sexual assault and corruption.”

— Apolline Traore, director and writer of Frontieres

CANNES, ‎PROVENCE-ALPES-CôTE D'AZUR, FRANCE, May 14, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The #MeToo Movement is not just about the movie industry in Hollywood, California. Women have been taken advantage of for centuries in countries around the world. Long before Hollywood's dirty secrets were revealed, Burkina Faso's Director and Writer Apolline Traore produced, "Frontières," a feature film about 4 women, 5 countries in 7 days, who endure injustices from sexual assault, harassment, and extortion from men and governments who control the borders that they must cross to make a living trading goods.

Borders, the English translation, is an intense look at what happens on the road but stays on the road for women like the four featured in the film, Senegalese Actress Amélie Mbaye, Ivorian Actress Naky Sy Savane, Burkinabe Actress Adizelou Sidi, and Nigerian Actress Unwana Udobang.

Staying true to her roots, Traore shot her film entirely on the locations depicted in the storyline from Burkina Faso, Senegal to Nigeria. "I tell real stories. Frontières (Borders) focuses on a 7-day adventure of four enterprising women crossing 5 borders without fear while fighting against sexual assault and corruption," she said.

While Frontières (Borders) is in French with English subtitles, Traore's brilliant storytelling caught the attention of diverse audiences. The film won Best Narrative Film at the 26th Annual Pan African Film Festival, the largest and most prestigious Black film festival in America, co-founded by Award-Winning Actor Danny Glover, Actress Ja’Net DuBois, and Executive Director Ayuko Babu. Nearly 800 entries of shorts and feature films from around the world are submitted each year to the PAFF. In 2018, 170 films were accepted and Traore's feature film won the highest honor.

In Africa, "Frontières" was the Official Selection – Feature Films Fiction at the Panafrican Festival of Cinema and Television of Ouagadougou (FESPACO) 2017, Winner of the African Integration Award from ECOWAS and the Félix-Houphouët-Boigny Prize from the Conseil de l'Entente at FESPACO 2017.

To further the exposure of French films such as Traore's film, a historic partnership was officially signed by President of Orange Middle East & Africa Bruno Mettling and French Institute President Pierre Buhler on May 11, 2018 in Cannes during the 71st Cannes Film Festival between Orange Studios and the French Institute, which is monumental for French films. France's cultural diplomacy is supported by a network of 96 French Institutes and more than 800 French Alliances.

The French Institute will promote access to theatrical films in the French cultural network abroad, by ensuring the technical follow-up and the availability of the media with each of the rooms exploiting the film. "The continent is a priority and it remains essential to the cinema where it should be seen, namely on too few screens Africa. This partnership with Orange is even more emblematic that France will welcome in 2020 a Season of African cultures," said Buhler.

The partnership offers a non-exclusive distribution to its global network. "Four films by African women directors will be screened in preview under the aegis of the Cinémathèque Afrique in the French cultural network, for a broadcast from September 2018, including Director Apolline Traore's "Frontières," said Mettling.

"As a filmmaker, I am grateful to Orange and the French Institute for believing in me and my films. I always wanted to be a filmmaker since I was a little girl. I remember telling a lot of stories at the dinner table when I was young," said Traore. "For me, film making is a way to share my dreams with the world." Traore's films are produced by Les Films Selmon, her production company.

"I wanted to tell a graphic story about the strength of African women who bounded in an accidental friendship to survive," said Traore. "It reflects the #MeToo Movement because in the film we see four independent women who refuse to belittle themselves in front of the supremacist of men."

In 2017, the Burkinabè director's "Frontières" officially opened at FESPACO in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso. "It is a hot topic more than ever and is close to my heart," said Traore. "We need ​​free movement of people and goods in Africa and eliminate the zone of corruption and stand up for women rights."

Frontieres continues its journey in the film festival circuit from Burkina Faso and Los Angeles to Cannes and now New York where it will be the opening night screening and discussion at the 25th Annual New York African Film Festival. The premiere will be held at the Film Society of Lincoln Center at 165 W. 65th Street, New York, NY 10023 on May 16 at 6:30 p.m. "It's a very big honor. The festival had screened my first short film, "Kounandi” in 2004," said Traore. "On it's 25th anniversary, I'm opening the festival and at the same time honoring my recently deceased mentor, Idrissa Ouedraogo. It's wonderful and bittersweet but he would be proud."

This is a media-friendly event. For more information and press credentials, please contact nyaff25@africanfilmny.org or call 212-352-1720.

Traore's next project scheduled to begin production in Summer 2018 is a Haitian feature film, “Desrances," starring Award-Winning Haitian-American TV and Film Actor Jimmy Jean-Louis. "My inspiration about “Desrances” came from the place of girls in our society. Until today we find in our community, parents who prefer putting their boy in school because a girl will leave the family: with a husband," said Traore. "It's important for me to show that a girl can be a heir as well as a boy. The story honors Haiti by showing the strength of a Haitian man, despise his multiple troubles. It's a positive and honorable reflection of Haiti. A poor and very problematical country that stays strong no matter the circumstances."

For interviews and personal appearances, contact Traore's Publicist Marie Lemelle at 213-276-7827 (WhatsApp) or m.lemelle@att.net.

For more information about the purchase, lease or distribution of Traore's films or for investment and product placement, contact Traore at apollinet@yahoo.fr or Platinum Star PR at info@platinumstarpr.com.

Hesham Hammoud creates magic onscreen for the hit ABC television series ‘Once Upon A Time’

 I feel it makes me a stronger compositor since I understand different aspects of our industry”

— Hesham Hammoud

TORONTO, BC, CANADA, May 11, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Hesham Hammoud brings his VFX creative talents to the small screen, compositing for ABC TV’s hit series Once Upon A Time, currently in its 7th and final season. The incredible visual effects on the show have helped to make it a fan favorite with its various fantasy-driven storylines. One episode of Once Upon A Time can consist of 300 VFX shots, and with 22 episodes per season, Hammoud is kept busy with all of the shots needed in a short turn around time.  It takes talent, long hours, and hard work to handle a show of Once Upon A Time’s scale. The ABC TV series has their last two episodes today, Friday, May 11 and the finale is May 18, 2018.

“I got into the visual effects industry to creatively help tell a story.  For me, that can involve working on-set as part of the VFX team and eventually move on to become a VFX Supervisor, or it can be in the office digitally creating the effects.  I also love being in front of the camera bringing words to life with a character.  I’m just blessed to have all the opportunities that I have had so far, but I will keep working for more because I love what I do.” Hesham says.

Visual Effects (VFX) consists of editing videos to combine real filmed footage with computer-generated imagery.  Today it is used across television shows and widely used in bringing the magic, stunts, and excitement to blockbuster feature films. Common VFX uses are fake environments that are filmed on green screen when going to location is impossible (or it doesn’t exist), or doing digital stunts that are too dangerous or impossible.  It is also used to enhance shots that don’t look like they have any effects, such as digitally removing reflections in a window, or wires attached to an actor.

Hesham is an Alumnus of the Interactive Multimedia and Design program at Carleton University before moving west to Vancouver to further his education at the Vancouver Film School. Hesham landed his first job in VFX at the Academy Award-winning VFX house, Rhythm & Hues, where he received his first credit as a compositor on his first feature film, Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters. He has also composited VFX on Into the Storm, Dead of Summer, Future Man and When We Rise.

Shortly after wrapping on Percy Jackson: Sea Of Monsters, Hesham made his way to Zoic Studios, as part of the render team, as an on-set Zeus Operator as well as a compositor in house.  Zeus is Zoic’s proprietary system that allows experienced artists such as Hesham to do live keying on set and lay out the virtual environment so the directors/producers can accurately visualize and plan their shots with ease.  It’s a complex system of computers and camera tracking technology that significantly increases creativity on set.

When Hesham isn’t on set or compositing, he is bringing his years of expertise to helping the current Render Team. “Being in this industry for 5 years now, I love that I can wear many different hats”, says Hesham. “It is rare to have one person take on many tasks in this industry. I love being a compositor and bringing shots to life to help tell the story, but I also love that I can be on-set or bring my expertise to the render team.  I feel it makes me a stronger compositor since I understand different aspects of our industry.”

Hesham wants to work on anything that requires creativity and being able to use his talents.  He can also be seen on the other side of the camera, acting in over 13 different productions that include Altered Carbon, Arrow, Prison Break and X-Men Apocalypse.  He had a scene with Wentworth Miller, Dominic Purcell, Augustus Prew and Rick Yune on Prison Break, which was a dream come true. Prison Break was his favorite TV show of all time as a teenager. The show was cancelled, but fast-forward 9 years and he is acting on the series opposite the lead actors.

Hesham also got to film a scene on Once Upon A Time opposite Colin O’Donoghue and Faran Tahir. And then he ended up working on it in post-production!  “I had to do the visual effects on my own shot.  It’s a surreal feeling and a really neat experience being on both sides of the same production,” says Hesham.

Hesham grew up in Ottawa, Ontario and now resides in Vancouver, British Columbia. He is physically active and loves being outdoors in the sunshine. His health routine consists of waking up at 6:30 am then hits the gym for weights and high intensity cardio, while eating a strict healthy diet to keep him fit for the long days on set.

Today we get to share our cast and crew’s hard work to our already thriving and loving fan base that’s been with us over the last 6 years. Their commitment [to the project] astounds me.”

— Producer, Lozen Fükem

DALLAS, TX, USA, May 10, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Dallas, TX May 10, 2018 – After years of hard work making their concepts a reality, the filmmakers of independent sci-fi film, MONOCHROME: THE CHROMISM, are proud to release their film trailer. The trailer has already won awards at the Hermes Creative Awards and the Los Angeles Independent Film Festival Awards (LAIFFA).

MONOCHROME is a black and white dystopian film where the world sees color for the first time. Those who turn color are labeled “Hues” and are outcast from society. THE CHROMISM is the first feature film in the series and origin story of the world of MONOCHROME. The film follows Isaac Ward (the first Hue) and his struggle to make sense of these new developments and his struggle to survive. Future sequels are already planned. The feature film is scheduled to be released in 2019 after going through the film festival circuit.

The film is a labor of love for Kodi Zene (Writer/Director) and Lozen Fükem (Producer) and the public release of the trailer is a milestone for the pair. From the time of the original concept six years ago, the team has spent countless hours making the film a reality. They started with an idea, filmed a teaser trailer, attending various conferences with their printed materials in a little spray painted garden wagon until they built up enough capital and interest to make the feature film. The film was filmed in Texas and sticking with the theme of the film, includes all local actors with diverse race, sexual preference and religious backgrounds. The film stars Josh Bangle, Cat Merritt, Devin Leigh, Ryan Barnes, Andre Pelzer and Shashana Pearson.

“Today, we get to share our cast and crew’s hard work to our already thriving and loving fan base that’s been with us over the last 6 years. Their commitment [to the project] astounds me.” -Producer, Lozen Fükem
