Deliciously Evil. Two Lesbians, One Saxophone. You’ve never seen the future like this.
It’s the story of lesbian musicians in love (voiced by Claudia Black and Tara Strong) and the record company Svengali (Tim Curry) who tears them apart, plus a lot of sexy downtrodden mutants… It has danceable songs, spaceships, nipples, clever dialogue, and an Up the Proletariat subversive pretext…
– Stage and Cinema
Co-written by out lesbian musician Shelley Doty and director G. B. Hajim, this gorgeous animated sci-fi drama portrays the power of love between two women. It is the 29th century — on Jupiter’s moon, Ganymede. Our hero Naia (prolific voice actress Tara Strong) is a feisty, young singer-songwriter who falls in love with the beautiful saxophonist Parker (Claudia Black — Farscape, Stargate SG-1). The two embark on their new relationship and form a new band — as they also fight for their freedom together.
Strange Frame: Love And Sax is brilliantly animated and co-stars a terrific array of voice talents including Tim Curry, Cree Summer, Juliet Landau, Ron Glass, Alan Tudyk, Michael Dorn, Claudia Christian, and George Takei.
Johwell St-Cilien Films presents its first feature film.
C.A.S.A. is a feature length documentary about an internationally recognized middle school celebrated for its innovation and education of the whole child. CASA Middle School was founded in 2009 by principal Jamaal Bowman and a group of passionate, socially conscious teachers ready to do whatever it took to transform the community in which they serve. In 2012, CASA ranked in the top 17% of middle schools in New York City in reading and mathematics. In 2015 CASA had the highest combined reading and math growth score average in New York City. Since its opening CASA has consistently ranked in the top ten in attendance in the school district. CASA graduates produced over 12 pieces of authentic writing in the areas of expository, argument, narrative, and poetry. Lastly, CASA Middle School students have been responsible for writing and producing over 10 social justice music videos that have led to being featured on news outlets over 30 times in media channels such as NY1, News 12 and Arise TV just to name a few.
