Harlem Globetrotters, Panhandlers, and the China cultural revolution at Tiananmen Square rarely share anything in common – except for an Oscar Nomination. Distributed by Passion River Films, these independent films are compiled in the new DVD release: HARDWOOD / RYAN / SUNRISE OVER TIANANMEN SQUARE: Unique Award Winning Short Films.

In “Hardwood,” documentary filmmaker Hubert Davis, son of former Harlem Globetrotter Mel Davis, explores how his father’s decisions affected his life and those of his extended family. At its core, this Oscar nominated documentary validates the power of redemption and healing the bonds between father and son.

Academy Award Winner for Best Animated short film, “Ryan” is an independent film tribute to Canadian animator Ryan Larkin who produced some of the most influential animated films of his time. Today, Ryan lives on welfare and panhandles for spare change in downtown Montreal. Director Chris Landreth questions how an artistic genius can tumble into life on the streets in this animated short film.

“Sunrise Over Tiananmen Square” offers a personal documentary of political upheaval in China through a rich collage of original artwork and archival photographs. China born director Shui-Bo Wang illustrates his family’s ordeal during the Cultural Revolution, and his experience during the chaos of the Tiananmen Square uprising decades later in this Oscar nominated documentary.

This new DVD release of Academy Award nominated independent films and documentaries is available on March 28th at retailers and on-line stores nationwide.

Most design teams only dream about the recognition and confirmation of their creativity and talent being seen by others. Wander Graphics’ and Wander Films’ creative team of Joshua Clark and Aaron Weber can watch their award-winning film along with hundreds of thousands of viewers at 10:45 pm EST, Sunday, September 24, 2006 on the IFC, Independent Film Channel, when their short, Wander, airs to a national audience.

No stranger to awards, Wander, the short, winner of the Ivy Film Festival for best experiential short film, tells the story of a young boy as he navigates the hard and dangerous streets of the inner city. On his journey he discovers a glass jar with a magic light that leads him into a better world, where anger is transformed into love. Directed by Joshua Clark and produced by Aaron Weber, both graduates of the School of Visual Arts bring these creative skills to their work in Wander Graphics, www.wandergraphics.com

The firm works in graphics, film and music to tell the client’s story in a unique and engaging way. From websites, special effects and directive photography, Clark and Weber share a passion evident in their portfolio.

“Often the world thinks of design as separate piece or a product, like a website. For us design is the integral whole of our client’s message, which emerges not just as the end product but an experience of color, movement and experience,” states Weber, “We listen for the outcome and deliver the highest quality product that is an expression of the business.”

For a short film, Wander, has garnered a lot of attention and has been selected for numerous national and international film festivals including, Chicago, Rhode Island, Atlanta, and most recently, the Australian Film Festival. The film is also available for viewing at Wander Films, www.wanderfilms.com and on the Media Lab website at www.ifc.com/medialab The firm transfers the director’s eye and producer’s vision to all facets of their work, especially photography:

“As filmmakers we approach photography from a uniquely different viewpoint. Step into our world and we will handle the creative and production aspects of a shoot with the same precision and results we have utilized in our award winning filmmaking,” states Director Joshua Clark.

For more information on Wander Film and Graphics suite of products and services, please visit www.wanderfilms.com or call 323-230-7361. For interviews, please contact their Los Angeles based representative, Maureen O’Crean at 310-379-9620 or email through her website at www.maureenocrean.com
