Submitted by melissa on May 22, 2014 - 8:04am


 

We've all heard that "opposites attract," but why? Writer, producer and director Darren Paul Fisher (The Inbetweeners) offers his explanation in Frequencies with the idea the each person has a certain "frequency," be it high or low. In simple terms, those with low frequencies are unlucky and those with high are in sync with the world around them.

FREQUENCIES hits theaters and VOD/iTunes on May 22nd!

From their very first encounter as children in school, Zak (low frequency) is smitten with unemotional Marie (high frequency). She's methodical and intrigued by him, but nothing more. Zak's friend, Theo, observes the two, analyzing their situation. They advance in years, becoming teenagers, and then young adults. The two eventually fall in love, causing problems which reach much farther than they would have imagined.

Interview: Cyber Seniors Director Saffron Cassaday - Presented by Girls on Film

Cyber-Seniors is a new documentary from first time director, Saffron Cassaday. Inspired by her grandparents, Cassaday’s sisters launched a program to teach retired seniors how to connect to the web. A group of young volunteers share their knowledge with quite a cast of characters, lead by Shura, an 88 year old retiree who thought it would be impossible to learn how to get online. Once she discovers YouTube, she creates a cooking video that garners quite a bit of attention. This inspires other residents and sparks a bit of friendly competition. Hilarity ensues, of course, but the heart of this documentary is in the cultivated relationships between the seniors and their young mentors.

Don't miss the Q&A at the 7pm showing at Cinema Village in NYC!

We were fortunate enough to be able to sit down with Saffron Cassaday to learn a little more about the documentary.
