"Pola Negri: Life is a Dream in Cinema", highlights the career of Silent Film era Hollywood star, Pola Negri and features interviews with Hayley Mills, Eli Wallach and A.C. Lyles. "Esther’s Diary" is a deep and fascinating film exposing the internal conflicts among Jewish and Christian survivors of the holocaust in Poland.Starring Juli Erickson, Shelley Calene-Black and Sydney Barrosse. In "Deeper & Deeper" Ryan (David Lago), a charming young bank teller becomes instantly obsessed the moment he sees the frosty, career-driven Angelica (Lisa Marie Lamendola). Consumed by his curiosity, Ryan stalks Angelica, desperate to get close to her. Things are not always what they seem in this twisty tale of psychological suspense.

So, here's to creating new relationships, keeping strong integrity and supporting loyalties on the path forward and up!
