ADVENTURE Movie Scene of the Day: Barn Fight Scene. From The Legend of Zorro (2005)

CLIP DESCRIPTION:
Zorro (Antonio Banderas) saves Blanca (Giovanna Zacaras) and her baby from McGivens (Nick Chinlund), but is unable to save her husband Guillermo (Gustavo Snchez Parra).

FILM DESCRIPTION:
The legendary Mexican hero returns to the screen in this swashbuckling sequel to the 1998 box-office hit The Mask of Zorro. It’s 1850, and the people of California, eager to improve their difficult lot in life, have launched a campaign to become part of the United States. Don Alejandro de la Vega (Antonio Banderas) has become aware of a plot by moneyed Europeans to block the campaign for statehood through nefarious means, and it looks as if Alejandro’s heroic alter ego, Zorro, may have to return to duty. However, Alejandro’s wife, Elena (Catherine Zeta-Jones), has grown weary of his secret life, and she demands that he choose between his family and his clandestine career as a champion of the people. This leads to a rift between Alejandro and Elena, and the couple separates, with Alejandro moving out while Elena continues to care for their son, Joaquin (Adrian Alonso). A few months later, Alejandro finds that Elena is already being wooed by Armand (Rufus Sewell), a suave French nobleman who wants her hand in marriage. However, Alejandro also learns that Armand is actually part of a plot to prevent California from attaining statehood by tampering with an upcoming election; meanwhile, there may be more to Elena’s involvement with Armand than romantic courtship. Zorro must come to the rescue of the people of California and perhaps his beloved Elena as well before they both fall into dangerous hands. The Legend of Zorro was directed by Martin Campbell, who performed the same duties on The Mask of Zorro.

The ACTION/THRILLER FEBRUARY 2017 FEEDBACK Film Festival was truly a great success.

The theme of the festival was “OPEN ENDED ENDINGS”.

Every film showcased had an ending for sure – but it also left a continuining story for the characters presented. So if any of these filmmakers want to make a sequel – they can!

NOTE: This was the 3rd festival showcasing the best of Action Short Films at the festival. And the 4th festival that was moderated by Amanda Lomonaco. She was terrific and will be moderating 6 more festivals in 2017.

This was one of those rare festival nights where every single film presented received multiple votes for “Best Film” of the night.

The Action / Crime / Thriller Festival nights are now becoming my favourites. Many of these terrific films don’t get a fair shake from other festival programmers because they appear to be too “mainstream” for the short film market.

Before I started the FEEDBACK Festival, I worked at more than a few film festivals, TIFF (Toronto International Film Festival) being one of them. It was there where I truly understood what programmers are looking for – and the films presented at this festival are NOT what they are looking for.

When I decided to dedicate an entire festival for these genres, I have to say that I was a bit worried. I didn’t know if we were going to receive a fair share of quality films from around the world in the Action/Crime genres in particular. And boy was I wrong. Hence the reason why there are 4 more festivals in these genres scheduled in Los Angeles & Toronto in 2017.

See you at the festivals in 2017.
