'Sam' is a short film by Alexis Garcia Rocca. It was released on Veteran's Day, or as we call it in Canada: Rememberance Day. The film stars Morgan Roberts as Sam, and Georgie Flores as the young woman he loves but struggles to connect with after returning home from war. The story is based upon the writing of Juan Garcia who served in the United States Army as a Field Artillery Officer for 8 years. The terrifying reality is that many people who have served in the military are in a position similar to Sam's upon returning home. People who need help, and yet even those closest to them seem miles away, unaware of the severity of the situation and feeling like they are both on the outside.
'Sam' provides a tearful insight into a reality most would prefer to avoid acknowledging. It's a very real part of the world we live in, and though we may wish to ignore it this film leaves that no longer possible. This is the first film project where Alexis Garcia Rocca worked with her brother Juan, and in less than 12 minutes they'll leave a more powerful impression than most movies ever could.

Director Alex Noyer and producer Alexander Dunn have created a stunning new documentary that is a testament to one of the most influential instruments in the last few decades of music. The Roland TR-808 is a drum machine that not only made creating music accessible on a whole new level. What no one expected is that the 808 had an influential sound all it's own, and one that's just as present no as it's been since it was first made. The film includes appearances by countless influential musicians like Rick Rubin, Afrika Bambataa, Richie Hawtin, Diplo, and Pharrell Williams. Let this build anticipation for the 2015 release!
