Based on the filmmaker's own life experience growing up on the streets of Berkeley, QUEST is a compelling, non-romantic true love story between a child in crises, addicted to graffiti, on the brink of destruction, losing faith in integrity; and a humble middle-school teacher who believes there is no such thing as a bad kid, only a bad situation. The filmmaker, Santiago Rizzo, will present his film and engage the audience in Q&A in person at the screenings on June 8th and 9th; then  via Facetime on June 16th!

Finding What Lasts Forever

FINDING WHAT LASTS FOREVER - A personal journey of self-discovery combines with a documentary to delight foodies, along with a beautiful travelogue of Italy! Click on the image above to read a film review and commentary of Mountain Shadow’s selection for April, 2018: Matteo Troncone’s document: “Arrangarsi - Pizza and the Art of Living”

The Mole Hill, the Mountain, and the Way Back Home

If one considers film an art form, and one subscribes to the maxim about art imitating life, then a fine film like THE INSULT is an excellent example. It is also an “everyman’s” story. Lebanon's submission for "Best Foreign Language Film," was aptly selected as one of five nominees at the 2018 Oscars. The film was Mountain Shadow's selection for March, 2018.
