Short Film MEDIATION to Screen at Beverly Hills Film Festival
Award-winning filmmaker Francisco's short film "Mediation" is set to screen at the upcoming 14th Annual Beverly Hills Film Festival as well as the 9th Annual Sunscreen Film Festival.
"Mediation" is the first project released by the brand new Film/TV production company entitled Top Rebel Productions - the brainchild of actor Freddy Rodriguez, Francico Lorite and veteran producer Bill Winett. The short tells the story of a divorce mediation that spirals completely out of control for a husband (Freddy Rodriguez), his soon-to-be ex-wife (Marley Shelton) and their court-appointed mediator (Marilyn Sanabria).
Tackling the age-old question "how far would one go for love?" Lorite, through his film noir style, shows that love can be irrational and can turn criminally tragic. Love is always a hot topic making news headlines. Take for instance our current obsession with the Oscar Pistorius trial. There are plenty of reasons why we as a society are fascinated with this trial: a celebrity killer, a gorgeous innocent victim and the everlasting controversial debate around gun violence. Yet what keeps us hooked above it all is the desire and need to know what was really going on in Pistorius' head when he pulled the trigger.
In other words, did Oscar Pistorius commit a crime of Passion in a fit of anger or was he a victim of an unfortunate accident in the name of love?
Loirte attempts to answer these questions showing that love has no boundaries.
Currently traveling the film festival circuit, "Mediation" is slated to screen at both the Beverly Hills Film Festival and the Sunscreen Film Festival.
