Bayview Entertainment Tabs Apr. 26 As The Release Date For A Three-Strong Italian Filmmaker Promotion On DVD

Bayview Entertainment announced its first wave of April new-to-DVD release this past week. 

Making its debut on Apr. 26 is Italian documentary filmmaker Cristiana Lucia Grilli’s Adriatic: The Sea That Unites, a fascinating look at the Molise area of Italy.

This is an area that is unique — neither Rome, nor Venice, or part of the booming northern region of Milan — sort of forgotten, but rich in history.  Molise, in the south, borders on the Adriatic and has been a crossroads for cultural upheavals for the past 500 years.  

The Turks (Ottoman Empire), the Croatians, the Albanians, all have, in their own ways, built the fabric of the area and its people.   Customs, traditions … even the language is unique.

Grilli worked with scholars, musicians and local history researchers to stitch-together this unique film showing the history, the regions relationship to the Adriatic Sea and the nearby Balkan Peninsula that has contribution so much to the area’s rich tapestry of life.

Adriatic: The Sea That Unites is a part of a three-film promotion from Bayview Entertainment on Apr. 26 that focuses on filmmakers from Italy.

Also included in the mix is Italian filmmaker Igor Biddau’s biopic, Ride For Glory, which focuses on the life of the late Bianchi cycling team great, Valeriano Falsini (Riccardo Sati), who rose from obscurity on the backroads of Tuscany to become one of Italy’s premiere cyclists in the immediate post-war period.

Biddau blends in the story of Falsini’s rise to prominance, which was no small task in Italy in the 1950s, which had been ravaged by war and was still recovering, and Falsini’s relationship with his idol, Fausto Coppi (Roberto Caccavo), who was considered one of the greatest cyclists in Italian history.

Rounding out this three film promotion from Bayview Entertainment on Apr. 26 is writer/director Matteo Scarfò’s sci-fi thriller, Last Sun of the Night.

In a future Italy, society is in ruins and androids interview the devestated citizens to determine if they qualify for relocation to the “Safe Zones.”  Such is the case of Carli (Andrea Lupia), an innoxuous bureaucrat, who is “interviewed” (a very creepy process), given refugee status and subsequently moved to Zone 13, which is nearly unoccupied.   Safe Zone?   Safe from what?

He shuffles around, tries to make the best of it, but over time he becomes numb to the world around him.   Perhaps, just perhaps, Zone 13 is a prison.  Interesting.

All three entries in this Apr. 26 promotion are presented in Italian with English subtitles.



Cinema Libre Sets The DVD Debut Of Documentary Filmmaker John Goetz's Guantánamo Diary Revisited Set For Delivery On Mar. 29

Cinema Libre announced this past week that the documentary filmmaking team of John Goetz and Ben Hopkins’ Guantánamo Diary Revisited, a look at the 15-year imprisonment of Mohamedou Ould Slahi — a Mauritanian citizen — at the Guantánamo Bay Detention Center, will be making its DVD debut on Mar. 29.  

From 2002 until 2016, Slahi was held, but never charge with a crime.  In the third year of his detention, he began writing a diary of his experiences.  It detailed what life was like in Mauritania before being swept-up as an “al Queda” operative and the daily grind, the torture, the insults, the terror of his imprisonment … but in many ways his book exposed the ineptness of an intelligence bureaucracy that had difficulty sorting out fact from fiction.

Despite a Federal judge’s order that Slahi be released because he had not been charged with any crime, the government had the order stayed and Slahi’s detention continued.   His book, “Guantánamo Diary,” was published in January of 2015 after being “cleared” by authorities (with redactions), but Slahi was denied a copy while still imprisoned.   It became a best-seller and was made into a theatrical production titled The Mauritanian, featuring Jodie Foster, Benedict Cumberbatch and Tahar Rahim as Mohamedou Ould Slahi.

American journalist John Goetz read the book and when Slahi was finally released in October of 2016 he contacted him about doing a documentary on his experiences.   Slahi had written three additional books while still confined, all of which are still “under review” by the U.S. Government … when Goetz met with Slahi, he got something completely unexpected, an invitation to his former tormentors to come visit him in Mauritania and have tea.

At this point, Goetz’s film took a turn from simply revisiting the years of captivity and a discussion of his writings, to a look at reconciliation … would anyone actually accept such an offer?   Yes, some did … and there in is the story of Guantánamo Diary Revisited, an intriguing look at the captive, the captors and, in Slahi’s own words the end to it, “I am telling you wholeheartedly that I have forgiven you.”

Included as a bonus feature is a Q&A session with Mohamedou Ould Slahi and John Goetz.
