OUR DAILY BREAD Selected to Screen
at the 2006 New York Film Festival
We're very pleased to announce that the feature documentary OUR DAILY BREAD has been selected to screen at the prestigious New York Film Festival. This acclaimed, international prize winning film reveals the little-known world of high-tech agriculture. In a series of visually stunning, continuously tracking, wide-screen images that seem right out of a science-fiction movie, we see the places where food is cultivated and processed: surreal landscapes optimized for agricultural machinery, clean rooms in cool industrial buildings designed for maximum efficiency, and elaborate machines that operate on a 'disassembly line' basis.

Acclaimed, Controversial, Classic Irish Film
Has U.S. Theatrical Premiere
Screening for the first time in the U.S.—in a newly restored version—the landmark film ROCKY ROAD TO DUBLIN is a captivating portrait of Ireland in the Sixties. In 1967, inspired by the French ‘New Wave,’ the Paris-based, Dublin-born journalist Peter Lennon decided to make a film about his native land. Featuring the photography of legendary cinematographer Raoul Coutard it was the last film screened at the 1968 Cannes Film Festival before the festival was stopped in solidarity with the then-erupting May ‘68.
