Well folks, I was honored to be a co-presenter, co-producer, co-moderator and the host for the first Atomic Age Cinema Fest LA in association with Kat Kramer’s Films That Change The World and the International Uranium Film Festival, which is the biggest global film festival about nuclear energy.
Founded in 2010 by Norbert G. Suchanek, Marcia Gomes de Oliveira and Shri Prahash, it’s a non-profit arts and cultural organization “Yellow Archives” based in Rio de Janeiro and registered as a Brazilian charity. The Los Angeles festival took place at the Charlie Chaplin Theatre at Raleigh Studios in Hollywood.
The films we presented in a one day and night fest were Hot Water by Lizabeth Rogers, Kevin Flint and Elizabeth Kucinich; Nuclear Savage: The Islands Of Secret Project 4.1 by Adam Horowitz; Final Picture by Michael von Hohenberg, and The Man Who Saved The World by Peter Anthony, a unique docudrama starring Stanislov Petrov, Kevin Costner, Matt Damon and Robert De Niro.
I was fortunate to have many “actorvists” who are also ambassadors for Kat Kramer’s Films That Change The World including legends Ed Asner and Louis Gossett, Jr., Frances Fisher, Ken Davitian, Massi Furlan and young “actorvists” Hank Chen, Tara Nicole Azarian, Joey Luthman, Mahkenna, Dominic Kline and Jade Le Boef. Others supporting were my mother Karen Sharpe-Kramer, Eliza Dushku and Dustin Quick.
One of the highlights was receiving a Golden Spirit Award and Certificate from David Valentino (Producer and Director of Hollywood With Students) along with von Hohenberg, presented by Asner. Von Hohenberg’s film Final Picture is being compared to my father’s nuclear war classic On The Beach.
Our Nuclear Power panel on directly after Louis Gossett, Jr. gave the Best Documentary Award on behalf of The Man Who Saved The World and was stellar. I was proud to co-moderate with the great Harvey Wasserman (Founder of Solartopia) and our distinguished panelists included “actorvists” Esai Morales, Mimi Kennedy, Gossett, Jr., and Nuclear Hotseat radio host Libbe Halevy.
I’m pleased to officially announce that I will be presenting a double feature of On The Beach and The China Syndrome for an up-coming installment of Kat Kramer’s Films That Change The World.
Live your dreams… Kat
