After losing his twin brother to cancer Dave Nowick is left to fulfill his brother's parting wish: "Take care of our wrestling club." Coach Dave walks the fine line between winning and personal growth in elite kids sports, finding new perspective and healing along the way.

Dave is faced with the challenge of grieving for his brother, while running a nationally ranked kids wrestling club. Walking the fine line between winning and personal growth in elite kids sports proves to be difficult but ultimately fulfilling.

WRESTLING WITH LIFE follows Mile High Wrestling Club through the 2012-2013 season, leading up to the prestigious Tulsa Kids Nationals. The film details the intense training youth wrestlers endure, as well as the tremendous expectations that are placed on kids as young as five years of age.

WRESTLING WITH LIFE also delves into the Nowick twins' upbringing immersed in the sport of wrestling, relating humorous as well as inspiring anecdotes. These stories reveal a life of profound dedication to the sport and to each other. Commentary from masters of the sport, including NCAA Champions and professional MMA fighters, is also included which details the physical, mental and spiritual riches this monastic lifestyle offers.

Despite his early tribulations, Dave ultimately finds resolution of his grief and new found inspiration as the wrestling season ends. He returns to his family and his life invigorated, having resolved his brothers legacy into four words: 'Wrestling Brings The Light.'

Over There: Greatest Hits of the Great War Opening in New York City and Greenwich, CT

Soprano Brett Kroeger is in preparation for a concert of the greatest songs of World War I, with opening performances at the Liederkranz of New York City on Dec. 7th, 2014 and at the Greenwich Arts Council in Greenwich, CT on Dec. 13, 2014. Over There: Greatest Hits of the Great War is the singer’s collaboration with Broadway arranger and pianist Christopher Denny. Admission to the show is free of charge.

“The man who disparages music as a luxury and non-essential is doing the nation an injury,” was the way President Woodrow Wilson viewed the importance of song during the conflict. “Music, now, more than ever before,” he said, “is a national need.” Over Thereshowcases the music that mattered in the years from 1914 to 1918, a chronicle in song of the World War I experience for soldiers and those back home alike.

As Brett Kroeger explains, “Music during the war was used for political propaganda, to rally the troops, to keep the home fires burning, to bring a little humor in desperate times, and to help people reflect on the past, present and future. It’s been exciting to go back to a time before cellphones or IPads or computers or television or even radio and put together this program of the chart-topping World War I hits, songs that reflect the emotions and experiences of the times, both back home and Over There.”

Locally, Brett has been performing for the past two years with Troupers Light Opera and will also be among the soloists at the Troupers gala, “An Evening of Operetta: Gilbert and Sullivan and Friends” for one night only on November 1, 2014 at the Pequot Library in Southport, CT.  Troupers Light Opera will celebrate the beginning of their 70th season with this production.

NYC Singer-Songwriter Aisha Eustache Pays Homage To Her Native Oklahoma with Single “Tornadoes”

 Oklahoma born and raised and now living in New York city, Aisha Eustache has seen her share of devastation. “While watching the national news one evening, the lead piece happened to be on the severe weather hitting Moore, Oklahoma, a town 20 mins away from my hometown Midwest City.  As the pictures of the devastation of homes, schools, churches, highways continued to flash on the screen the song welled up in my soul.”

The song would be the inspiration for Eustache to contact legendary producer Gary Katz, whom she met while doing backing vocals for a Katz led session.  “Tornadoes” was mixed by another well known producer, L.A. based Andrew Williams who has worked with, among others, Colbie Caillat and One Republic.

“With our evolving schedules and almost never ending demands of  modern society, I believe every soul can relate to having experienced an emotional Tornado of some sort.  My hope and intention for this song is to help shine a light on the devastation severe storms of any kind have on us personally and as a community. “

Aisha Eustache, a proud supporter of Childrens International and The Yellow Boots Society, will be in Los Angeles for a rare west coast performance on October 23rd at the West L.A. hot spot Ghengis Cohen celebrating the release of her single and a new endorsement with Gibson guitars.

“Gay Positive”

As seen on Time Warner NY1
Official selection for the 2014 7th annual Downbeach Film Festival Atlantic City Cinefest in Atlantic City, NJ 

A Documentary exploring the discrimination against Homosexual Men from donating blood in the USA.

“Gay Positive”
... because Gay Blood can save lives.
Recent history proves that when tragedy strikes, donor centers are often in short supply and struggle to meet demand. The ban forces organizations such as The Red Cross to reject willing, disease-free, healthy individuals. During the filming of this documentary, countries such as Mexico and the United Kingdom lifted their ban, while the FDA insisted it remain in the United States of America. “Gay Positive” is the story of one man trying to bring to attention the outdated ban on gay men donating blood in the United States of America.
The filmmakers of “Gay Positive” hopes this documentary will help remove the stigmas often associated with the lifestyles of homosexual men and to raise public awareness of the potential benefits of lifting the ban on gay blood.

The film features stars such as:
Laverne Cox (Orange is the New Black)
Lisa Lampanelli (Comedian. Known as the “Queen of Mean”) Eric Millegan (Bones, Lady Peacock)
Blanche Baker (16 Candles, Emmy Winner)
Trapper Felides (Host of Oxygen Networks The Next Big Thing) Elissa Goldstein (An Affirmative Act, Lady Peacock)
Yetta Kurland (NY Politician and Civil Rights Attorney)
Frank DeCaro (National Talk Show Host)

Last Will. & Testament--A Repeat Free Screening of this Documentary Film

Wednesday, October 29, 2014

Where: KC Public Library, 4801 Main St., K.C., Mo. Cohen Room, lower level

Admission: Free. Open to the public. Please call Deborah McArdle at (913) 492-8753 to RSVP

The ESU Kansas City Branch will offer a repeat screening of this documentary film on Wednesday, October 29, 2014. Several ESU members were unable to attend the original screening in 2012 and others who did see it remarked that it would be worthwhile to screen it again.

This film explores the greatest literary mystery of all time: who wrote the works of William Shakespeare? Golden Globe nominee Derek Jacobi leads an impressive cast of scholars and actors featuring Oscar Winner Vanessa Redgrave and Tony Winner Mark Rylance on a quest to uncover the truth behind the world's most elusive author, and discovers a forgotten nobleman whose story could rewrite history.

Copy and paste this link to watch the trailer

Shakespeare's plays and monologues are widely studied by academics worldwide and yet, the authorship question has persisted over the centuries. This documentary film, "Last Will. & Testament," offers educators and students of drama, history, theatre, humanities, and the English language a unique opportunity to examine the various theories about the authorship question and encourages students' critical thinking.

While the English-Speaking Union does not endorse any particular position on this controversy and remains neutral on the Shakespeare authorship question, it does welcome and encourage debate on this centuries-old topic.

Debate promotes critical-thinking skills so educators, students, scholars and the general public can begin to develop their own opinions on the controversy. This documentary film poses profound questions that encourage healthy debate.

Blakey agrees, “I’m thrilled to be working with TomCat.  They are the perfect brand to pair with this film. TomCat ‘gets’ what we’re doing here and, to date, we’ve garnered enough interest from fans and critics, that we’re considering a sequel.”

Cindy Means, who plays the title character, was recently interviewed by Rue Morgue is certainly open to the idea of working with Blakey again: “PMS Cop was an insane amount of fun and growth for me, and I look forward to what’s next.”
