IT'S BRUNO

SNEAK PEEK TIME! THE STAGE 13/NETFLIX ORIGINAL ‘IT’S BRUNO’

STREAMING ON MAY 17 ON NETFLIX
There’s just no coming between a man and his dog, as the Netflix/Stage 13 new scripted series “It’s Bruno” attests. It’s the brainchild of Solvan “Slick” Naim, whose entry into filmmaking started with music. As a kid, whenever he would hear a song he loved, he would create characters and a narrative to go with it. Before he turned to filmmaking, he was pursuing a career in music as a rapper. In a way, it’s what makes Slick’s visual style so dynamic. “It’s Bruno” plays like vibrant, pulsing and visual beats surrounding the tight bond between a man and his dog. 

As he began making independent films which segued into directing episodes for such popular shows as “Blacklist,” “Animal Kingdom,” “Power,” and “Snowfall,” he started to have dogs in his life – which was a new experience for him. He was working a lot from home so it was a joy to have company. He ended up adopting three rescue dogs, among them Bruno, a puggle mutt. One day while editing to some music, Slick turned around to see Bruno’s expressive face and started cracking up. This inspired him to recruit some friends to go shoot a proof of concept featuring Bruno and himself and their ridiculous adventures in their neighborhood of Bushwick (New York). 

“It’s Bruno” is that story expanded into eight epiosdes, shot in Bushwick and featuring an amazing cast of actors fans have seen across networks, films and streaming platforms. 

The series follows dog lover, Malcolm (Naim), his best friend and constant canine companion Bruno, and the hilarious things that take place on their vibrant Brooklyn block.  
 
Cast: Solvan “Slick “Naim (Director: “Blacklist,” “Animal Kingdom,” “Power”), Rob Morgan (“Mudbound,” “Daredevil,” “Luke Cage”), and Shakira Barrera (“GLOW,” “Lethal Weapon,” “Queen of the South”)​ ​ ​ ​​

Before Stonewall

Opening June 21 in New York & June 28 in Los Angeles

First Run Features is proud to announce the theatrical re-release of the legendary documentary Before Stonewall: The Making of a Gay and Lesbian Community on June 21 in New York and June 28 in Los Angeles, with other cities to follow. Fifty years after the riots gave birth to the modern lesbian and gay liberation movement, and with substantial progress made, LGBT Americans still find themselves fighting on many fronts for full equality, in the U.S. and around the world; Before Stonewall offers a potent reminder of what life was like for LGBT people before that extraordinary event.

n the early morning hours of June 28, 1969, the police raided the Stonewall Inn, a gay bar in New York City’s Greenwich Village, leading to three nights of rioting by the city’s gay community. With this outpouring of courage and unity the gay and lesbian liberation movement had begun. 

Before Stonewall pries open the closet door, setting free the dramatic story of the sometimes horrifying public and private existences experienced by LGBT Americans since the early 1900’s. Revealing and often humorous, this widely acclaimed film relives the emotionally-charged sparking of today’s gay rights movement, from the events that led to the fevered 1969 riots to many other milestones in the brave fight for acceptance.

Experience the fascinating and unforgettable, decade-by-decade history of homosexuality in America through eye-opening historical footage and amazing interviews with those who lived through an often brutal closeted history. The theatrical re-release of Before Stonewall is a chance for audiences to experience this eye-opening film on the big screen, with an audience, the way it was meant to be seen.

Narrated by iconic author Rita Mae Brown, the film features stirring interviews with pioneering cultural figures and activists including Audre Lorde, Allen Ginsberg, Harry Hay, Richard Bruce Nugent, Frank Kameny and Barbara Gittings.

Before Stonewall was produced by Robert Rosenberg, John Scagliotti and Greta Schiiller, with Schiller as Director, Rosenberg as Co-Director and Scagliotti as Executive Producer. All three have gone on over the past three decades to continue their groundbreaking work in LGBT film (see press kit for more).

To assure her happiness, they gather under the joyful guise of an expedited wedding, uniting family members scattered among new homes abroad. As Billi navigates a minefield of family expectations and proprieties, she finds there’s a lot to celebrate: a chance to rediscover the country she left as a child, her grandmother’s wondrous spirit, and the ties that keep on binding even when so much goes unspoken. With The Farewell, writer/director Lulu Wang has created a heartfelt celebration of both the way we perform family and the way we live it, masterfully interweaving a gently humorous depiction of the good lie in action with a richly moving story of how family can unite and strengthen us, often in spite of ourselves.
