    Art as a Weapon

    Jeff Durkin / San Diego Feature Films / USA / 2014 / Documentary, Feature / 58 mins
    This daring documentary shines a light on a remarkable school in Myanmar (Burma) that teaches street art as a form of non-violent struggle. The film chronicles the journey of these young students as they emerge from the darkness of military rule and become an international symbol of revolution. Also featuring street artists Shepard Fairey and J.R., the film connects these seemingly unrelated characters around the idea of using art as a weapon for change.

    Matthew Rocca / San Diego Feature Films / 2015 / Narrative / 90 mins
    Bullets, Fangs, and Dinner at 8 is a wicked blend of crime thriller, horror, and pitch-black dark comedy. A cult of people who believe themselves to be "vampires" has orchestrated an attack on a local church, prompting seminary student Michael Collins (Garrett Schweighauser) to organize a group of 'Vampire Hunter' vigilantes to avenge his people. Making matters more perilous for Michael is the fact that he is the only member of his church who knows the truth about its most well-respected priest: Pastor Steven Cooper (Matthew Rocca) is secretly the leader of the "vampire" cult, plotting the church's demise from within, and it's up to Michael to try to expose him for the monster he truly is.

The two musicians have big dreams but little future until their best friend Gina Marie gets them the break of a lifetime. Fate brings them together, love tears them apart, and their songs of heartbreak and loss redefine their genre.
