Richmond, VA 23230 United States
March two

Synopsis

Double Feature Documentary includes:
"The March of the White Elephants" and
"The Man Behind the Suit."  Q&A to follow with filmmakers.

“The March of the White Elephants” As waves of corruption crash around football’s international governing body, the film shows how FIFA prowls the globe, pocketing billions while leaving behind host countries with a legacy of economic debt, social distress and empty stadiums known as “white elephants.” Filmed during the dramatic protests against FIFA’s 2014 World Cup in Brazil, the story follows a crusading journalist as he documents the rising discontent of citizens, social justice activists, favela residents and football legend Romario to debunk the conventional wisdom that the World Cup is an economic boost for the host country. Directed by Craig Tanner. Produced by Neil Brandt.

Documentary Feature, Brazil/South Africa, 52:00

Artist Bio

“The March of the White Elephants” Directed by Craig Tanner

Craig’s film-making draws on skills developed as a lawyer over three decades – initially as a labour lawyer representing trade unions in South Africa in the late 1980s and 1990s, then as an Arbitrator determining workers compensation disputes in Australia, and in recent years as a barrister. His documentaries reflect the practices of his day job – careful research, analysis of evidence, leading and cross-examination of witnesses, crafting argument and exposing the fallacy of disingenuous assertions.

Documentary Feature - History, United States, 1:19:43

“The Man Behind the Suit” Directed by Victor Vargas

Victor is a recent graduate on Arizona State University with a degree in Film and Media Productions, was born in Los Angeles, CA and is currently living in Tempe, AZ. “If you ask me why I devote my life to film I will tell you because films can give people a chance to see something they would have never been able to see before,” he says about his passion in film. He hopes with this film, the crew can open the door to the life of a “hardworking man and a loving father, an under-appreciated balance” he’s sure many people can relate to.
