United States. 2019. Directed by Tom Jones. (130 mins.) Not Rated.

Asbury Park: Riot, Redemption, Rock n Roll tells the story of the long troubled town of Asbury Park, and how the power of music can unite a divided community. A once storied seaside resort, Asbury Park erupted in flames during a summer of civil unrest, crippling the town for the next 45 years and reducing it to a state of urban blight. A town literally divided by a set of railroad tracks, the riot destroyed the fabled Westside jazz and blues scene, but from the flames of the burning city emerged the iconic Jersey sound.

Asbury Park returns native sons Southside Johnny, David Sancious, Bruce Springsteen and Steven Van Zandt, to the legendary Upstage, the psychedelic after hours club where they got their start, featuring never before seen interviews and performances. Shuttered for four and a half decades, the Upstage remains a perfect time capsule of the Club which united both sides of the tracks in Asbury and acted as a crucible for young talent. Now, as Asbury Park enjoys its long awaited renaissance, it is music which has brought it back from the dead.

This major theatrical event will also include a bonus feature of never before seen footage, as Van Zandt, Southside Johnny, Springsteen and the Upstage All-stars play a now legendary concert to a sold out Paramount Theater and trade guitar licks with the future of music in Asbury, a group of 11-year-old rockers who prove the best days for the town may just lie ahead.

United States. 2019. Directed by Gary Lundgren. (109 mins.) Not Rated.

Filmed in Oregon! All showings sold out in advance at the Ashland Film Festival where Phoenix, Oregon made its world premiere!

A comedy of midlife reinvention and the redeeming power of friendship.

Defying midlife haze, two friends seize an unlikely opportunity to reinvent their lives, quitting their jobs to restore an old bowling alley and serve the “world's greatest pizza."

Phoenix, Oregon stars James Le Gros (Drugstore Cowboy, Living in Oblivion), Lisa Edelstein (Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce, House), Jesse Borrego (Fame, Blood In Blood Out), Diedrich Bader (Napoleon Dynamite, Office Space, Veep), and Kevin Corrigan (The Departed, Pineapple Express, True Romance).

The film takes a comedic look at the existential crisis many face when trying to find meaning and relevancy at midlife. Despite controlling bosses, dead-end jobs, and broken relationships, the two leads must awaken hibernating courage and resilience in order to take new risks and keep dreams alive.

 

GARY LUNDGREN (Director, Writer and Editor) is an award winning independent filmmaker with 4 features, numerous shorts, music videos, television and commercials to his credit. He shows remarkable range in his films, from his 2010 debut CALVIN MARSHALL, a prize winning baseball comedy starring Alex Frost and Steve Zahn, to REDWOOD HIGHWAY starring Shirley Knight and Tom Skerritt about an older woman who refuses to go quietly into the sunset, and then BLACK ROAD, a futuristic neo noir thriller starring Sam Daly, Simon Templeman and Leilani Sarelle. Gary creates characters which engage audiences and stay with viewers. These previous films seem to have been the fertile soil / proving grounds for his latest film, PHOENIX, OREGON, a rich tapestry of midlife reinvention and the enduring redemption of friendship. As a director, writer, and editor Gary has hit his stride with PHOENIX, OREGON which is poised to be his most successful effort yet.

An alum of Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, Mr. Lundgren is also an in-demand editor of narrative films such as Scott Blum’s WALK-IN and Ben Shelton’s WAKING. He has also brought his editing talents to bear on three award winning documentary films including the international version of Susan Saladoff’s HOT COFFEE for HBO, the ivory trade documentary, WHEN GIANTS FALL for Director Leslie Griffith, and EARTH SEASONED, about five young women’s wilderness adventure, for Director Molly Kreuzman. Mr. Lundgren’s production company, Joma Films, is based in Ashland, Oregon where he works with wife and producer, Anne Lundgren.

ANNIE LUNDGREN (Producer) Working behind the scenes, making sure everything runs smoothly is where Annie is at home and shines; time and again she has delivered projects fully funded, on time and on budget to happy clients and delighted audiences. Annie has produced commercials for such national clients as Hewlett-Packard, Adobe, Land Rover, Leica Geosystems and CBS Interactive. She was the Second Unit Location Manager for the Bryan Cranston, Kevin Hart film THE UPSIDE and was Key Assistant Location Manager for the Oscar nominated film WILD starring Reese Witherspoon. But her favorite projects by far are the feature films she has made with her writer/director husband Gary Lundgren through their company Joma Films. Together they have written, directed, edited and produced four feature length narrative films, CALVIN MARSHALL (2010), REDWOOD HIGHWAY (2014), BLACK ROAD (2016) and their soon to be released, highly anticipated PHOENIX, OREGON.

Annie is also a sought out consultant on film production, budgeting and funding, distribution and marketing. For their 2016 feature BLACK ROAD, Annie led the Kickstarter campaign which ultimately raised $45,000, an experience she blogged about.

In an effort to support other independent filmmakers, Annie started a weekly real-time distribution case study blog which began Feb 5th 2019 detailing the release of their 4th feature film, PHOENIX, OREGON. From post production, to their upcoming world premiere at the Ashland Independent Film Festival, through their self-created 50 City Summer 2019 U.S. Screening Tour anyone can follow along at jomafilms.com.

United States. 2019. Not Rated. with Scott Freiman

The Beatles’ Abbey Road is a masterpiece filled with classic Beatles songs, such as “Come Together,” “Something,” and “Here Comes the Sun."  George Martin told the Beatles to think “symphonically,” and they responded by creating the remarkable side two song suite. 

Abbey Road was the last time that the Beatles recorded together at EMI Studios — soon-to-be-christened Abbey Road Studios after the album’s release. Despite the bittersweet atmosphere that surrounded the recording sessions, The Beatles’ outstanding songs and performances together with George Martin’s orchestrations produced an album that continues to be regarded as one of the best albums ever created.

In Deconstructing Abbey Road, Beatleologist Scott Freiman has created one of his most in-depth “deconstructions.” Freiman takes the audience on a journey track-by-track explaining the inspiration for the songs and their evolution in the studio.
