Tallahassee Film Festival - Friday

TFF had many screenings on Friday night all over Tallahassee. Many of the screened films will show again during the course of the festival. The major film event for the night was "Sufferosa", an interactive film by Dawid Marcinkowski. The film is actually edited as it is viewed, based on factors like audience reaction, to produce up to three alternate endings. Unfortunately due to technical difficulties Sufferosa wasn't able to be screened. 

CinemaSinema got to sit down for actor, comedian and director Ahmed Ahmed's "Just Like Us". The film is a comedy tour through the Middle East. Comedians tend to speak about drugs, sex, and religion in their acts. These are banned topics in various parts of the Middle East which makes for an underlying tension and expectation that at any moment everything could go horribly wrong for the performers. The film works toward proving that although culturally different, like anywhere else, the people there are "Just Like Us".

The stand out in our opinion though was the short film preceding Ahmed Ahmed's "Just Like Us". Pardis Parker's short film "Afghan" squeezed more heart from an 11 minute short film than many Hollywood directors can muster from feature length pictures. "Afghan" is about making light of a terrible situation, when the main character finds that he has become the victim of a hate crime. We strongly encourage you to watch Afghan after the jump:


  1. Do you have a class C F.C.C. operator's license? You will be
    fined for wire fraud. The Federal Communications Commission and
    the Canadian Broadcasting Company in Canada are fining illegal
    broadcasters and producers and seizing the equipment. Do you
    have any other telephony devices or transmitting equipment? Did
    you make any broadcasts on December 25, 2011? Fugitives Charles
    Sandoval (aka Paauwee), Fitzgerald, Christmas, Parvin, Mashaud,
    Henry, and Able were found impersonating law enforcement
    officers at the Kokomo Sheriff Department. They were using ham
    operating transmitters. Michelle Huff and Mike Wyman were involved with bank fraud in Kokomo, Indiana and California. This was turned over to the FBI in D.C.. Indiana Department of Corrections and penal institutions in other states are racketeering against names in D.C.. Women with names similar to previous politicians or government
    officials are illegally incarcerated. For example, Monica
    Bateman, Victoria Nevarez, Angela Omans, Anne Funk, Tawnya
    Munro, Lisa Wilkey, Debra Culver, Athena Burdick, Jill Pennoyer,
    and Pamela Stout have been waiting for release for years. What
    cabinet people can you name? Sherman Funk and Paul Bateman
    served in the '86 period.
    Greg Hendrickson, Utah, was found operating illegal ham units
    and impersonating an F.C.C. engineer. He was using the F.C.C.
    website email. His associate, Steven Whitehead, was found using
    ham systems. He was involved in stalking and harassment of
    Hollywood actresses and workers. Whitehead had problems paying
    Tasha Brown, and other women employees of ethnic background.
    These men may be responsible for the September 11 crashes.
    Steven Whitehead, one of his aliases, mentioned his father
    worked for Jet Propulsion Laboratory. His father was retired
    and writing computer software programs. Whitehead may have been
    involved with Jet Propulsion Laboratory Amateur Radio Club which
    made illegal broadcasts in the past. This club was involved in
    several illegal banking transactions. Bob Dengler and Bill Woods
    of J.P.L.A.R.C were cited and fined by the F.C.C.. This group
    caused problems for NASA going back to 1972. The U.S. military
    made the arrests.
    The F.C.C. is investigating public utilities fraud and 2-3
    way party calling wire fraud. The Hollywood Reporter in Los
    Angeles, California reported that Michael Powell tried to pass a
    law stating 2-3 way party calling is legal. Everyone or anyone
    can listen to your phone calls. The F.C.C. website is fraud and
    is being treated as such. Do not call the illegal broadcaster.
    The F.C.C. plans an audit of television stations and radio
    stations across the United States. This will stop some
    intellectual property fraud occurring with several illegal
    broadcasters. California and Illinois have destroyed TV and
    radio stations including KMET-FM and the 'Pirate' in Los Angeles
    and WNIB-FM and WBLZ-FM in Chicago. California is still in possession of stolen property. Several Hollywood actors, actresses, and unlicensed personnel are being banned from television and films for criminal actions, including evading the Vietnam draft. There are three white stolen electrical trucks and NIPSCOM #30469 truck in the state of Indiana which may be associated with Duke Electric.

    Did you or do you have problems with your public utilities companies? Did you or do you have problem with your local broadcast stations? Would you like to surrender your cell phone?

    Do you allow criminals to perpetuate they are filmmakers? When is your state going to pay their debt and release the hostages? You understand helicopters and cell phones are not toys.

  2. Do you have anti-psychotic meds? You need to keep taking them as prescribed by your doctors.
