Meet the Patels
(2015, rated PG, 1h 28m)
Directed by siblings Ravi Patel and Geeta Patel, this award-winning film comes to you from Producer Janet Eckholm (AMERICAN SPLENDOR) and Academy Award Winning Executive Producer Geralyn Dreyfous (BORN INTO BROTHELS/THE SQUARE) and PBS. Meet the Patels is about Ravi Patel, an almost-30-year-old Indian-American actor who enters a love triangle between the woman of his dreams and his parents. Meet the Patels uses humor to address a timely social issue: In early 2009, directors, sister and brother team, Geeta and Ravi Patel began to explore and document the societal pressures of marriage in their first-generation Indian-American family. Through research in India and America, they discovered that their “Indian Issue” was more of an “American Issue”: the majority of Americans with strong cultural and religious roots shared a serious psychological conflict when it came to dating (and marrying) outside of their skin color, culture, religion, and ethnicity.

Forging the West, a new film by HaveyPro Cinema in association with Historic Pueblo, Inc., will bring the epic story of an essential western industry to life for audiences throughout the state and region. The Colorado Fuel and Iron Company (CF&I) began production in 1872 and grew to become the largest steel mill in the western United States and a firm of enormous importance to the industrialization of the American West. The first steel mill west of the Mississippi River, CF&I also played a pivotal role in the tumultuous history of American labor relations. Its mills in Pueblo, Colorado provided iron and steel products for agriculture, transportation, mining and other industries critical to western development.

Nick Mollé Productions will present their newest documentary “The Living Dream: One Hundred Years of Rocky Mountain National Park” on Thursday, June 25th at 7pm at the Esquire Theatre in Denver, Colorado. The ninety minute film documents the history of Rocky Mountain National Park from the Native American and Mountain Man eras through the pioneers. It continues through the 20th Century and into modern times. As a historical documentary it explores the influence of people from the passionate naturalist Enos Mills, to the self-serving Lord Dunraven, and the benevolent F.O. Stanley on this national park. Gunfights and legal battles failed to stay the progress and process of protecting the park for future generations. “We’re excited to share our film for the first time to the community of Denver and to show it in such a beautiful theatre” said Mollé. “Our goal in making this was to recognize that the bond between the wilderness, its wildlife, and the people who preserve it has an inherent power greater than any artificial possession.”One particular poignant quote from the movie is that of a park ranger Cynthia Langguth when she says, “What people bring to the park is as important as what we perceive the Park gives to them.” The story is told through interviews with historians including James Pickering PhD, Curt Buchholtz, Dave Lively, and Bob Brunswig PhD. National Park personnel and local citizens contribute their personal insights. In particular, Tom Hornbein of Mt. Everest fame and world class climber Tommy Caldwell share their feelings about the Park’s centerpiece, Longs Peak. Several years of filming and months of editing have gone into this production. Included in the work are numerous historical photos as well as archival films dating back to the beginning of the 20th Century. The documentary will be released on PBS in September of 2015. Tickets are available in advance at http://www.landmarktheatres.com/denver/esquire-theatre/private-screenings or at the Esquire Theatre Box Office. Filmmaker, Nick Mollé and special guests will lead a Q&A after the film. DVD’s and Blu-rays will also be available for purchase in the theater lobby.
