"Meditate and Destroy" is a feature-length documentary that will provide an intimate portrait of Noah Levine, a Buddhist meditation teacher who uses his personal experience and punk rocker sensibilities to teach meditation in juvenile halls, high security prisons, and urban centers around the country. After a self-destructive adolescence of criminal activity and substance abuse, Noah now follows and shows others a path of spirituality and community service. Noah has a familiar counter-culture appearance; his arms are fully tattooed, he has gold teeth, and wears black t-shirts of his favorite bands. It seems a strange juxtaposition, however, to discover he is both a punk rocker and a devout Buddhist. "Meditate and Destroy" will fill a void in the media by exploring how the younger generations in America -- sometimes characterized as apathetic and self-involved-- are finding a positive way to channel rebellion and dissatisfaction. Through the story of Noah Levine, our film will help raise an important discussion on the meaning of spirituality among today's youth, personal identity, the punk rock ethos, and addiction recovery. "Meditate and Destroy" will not take a position that asserts Noah is an "enlightened guru" or somehow "holier than thou". This documentary aims to keep a reflective stance, acknowledging through an objective look at Noah's life that his transformation is ongoing. We won't sidestep the difficult questions for easy answers. Instead, our diverse portrait of Noah will allow viewers to reflect on what makes a former criminal become a peace-loving spiritual practitioner.
Irreverent as ever, Larry plays a big city health inspector who?s happy with his usual beat of greasy spoon diners and low-rent ethnic restaurants.

"Trap" is a perfect film to feature as our IndieFest Valentine's weekend gala. It's about husbands and wives--killing each other! Award-winning short-filmmaker James Bonner's feature debut, is an artful horror that explores the place where salvation, love, and insanity come crashing together; where four people go in--and only one comes out.
Nicole is trapped. She's caught in an abusive marriage that brings new meaning to the phrase until death do us part. Her only friend, an online pal named Amy, admonishes Nicole to kill her husband before he does her in first. Nicole reluctantly agrees. She murders her husband and flees for Amy's distant home--and sanctuary.
But Amy is not what she seems: cruel and manipulative, she toys with anyone in reach. She's entrapped her own spouse, Chandler, and driven him half mad with her constant taunting and humiliations. Amy doesn't realize how desperate Chandler has become. The trap is set and a game of cat and mouse ensues in this harrowing, painfully funny story about body disposal and other problems with burying the past.
If you enjoy movies that are well written and acted, crisply edited, colorful, fast paced, visually dense, and consistently surprising, then Michigan-based, (and avowed fan of local hero Sam Raimi) James Bonner's "Trap" is an excellent entertainment choice. Find a date you really trust for Saturday night and get your tickets early.
