Land Of Little Rivers on DVD and Streaming
Posted by Scott R. Garrigus

Land Of Little Rivers arrives on DVD and Streaming on May 19 from Cinema LibreTwo buddies grew up in the village of Walden, New York, took diverging paths, then reconnected one day and hatched a plan to make a movie. Retired businessman and full time fly-fisherman, Bruce Concors, partnered with producer/director Aaron Weisblatt to craft an insiders’ ode to anglers and the region known as the Land of Little Rivers, a network of tributaries in the Catskill Mountains known as the birthplace of American fly fishing. The documentary premiered at the Woodstock Film Festival and will be released on DVD and Streaming platforms (Amazon & Vimeo with additional to follow) starting May 19, 2020 by Cinema Libre Studio.

Filming the tricky prey was challenging, says Weisblatt. “It was hard being in the right spot at the right time to capture the moment when an angler hooked a fish. I spent hours and hours watching, waiting and, frankly, drinking beer only to wrap that day without a single fish being caught...”

Undead Drama ZOMBI CHILD arrives on DVD and Digital May 19 from Film MovementZOMBI CHILD Arrives to Home Entertainment Platforms Following its Theatrical Release in 100+ Markets; the DVD Includes Audio Commentary by Director Bertrand Bonello and the Bonus Short Film "Child of the Sky."

SYNOPSIS
ZOMBI CHILD, from director Bertrand Bonello (Nocturama, Saint Laurent) injects history and politics into an unconventional cross-genre film. Opening in 1962 Haiti, the horror-fantasy follows the real-life story of Clairvius Narcisse (Mackenson Bijou), who falls dead on the street but is soon turned into a "zombi" when he is dug up from his grave and forced to work on a sugar-cane plantation. Shifting to present-day Paris at the Légion d'honneur boarding school, a rebellious teen named Fanny (Louise Labèque) befriends Melissa (Wislanda Louimat), who moved to France when her parents died in the 2010 Haiti earthquake. After recruiting her into a secret literary sorority, Fanny learns of Melissa's connection to Clairvius, and becomes obsessed with her new friend's past and culture, soon doing the unthinkable: seeking out her voodoo mambo aunt to solve her recent heartbreak. Jonathan Romney of Screen Daily said, "Mixing political commentary, ethnography, teenage melodrama and genre horror, the film is an unashamedly cerebral study of multiple themes...taking us on a journey that's as intellectually demanding as it is compelling"...
