COMING SOON

Eve'N God: This Female is Not Yet Rated

screening 2/1-2/7, showtimes TBA

First-time director Cali Lili's LGBTQ interracial love story and gender-based debate    "eVe N'god this female is not yet rated ™" will debut on Feb 1, 2019 for a one week run through Feb 7, 2019. 

The allegorical, avant-garde fairytale is described as  “1 day in the epiphany of a 21st century girl, who kissed a girl ™ A lost and found virginity fantasy bordering on polyamory, a bittersweet romance in the key of Rock N’ Soul and an immersive sci-fi dream as the Global Girl awakens to the Legacy of Herself.”  

The all-female crew production from actress/director Cali Lili and her sustainable, up-cycled, movie and music studio in the gentrification-torn Venice Beach Canals was shot throughout Venice with footage that includes a local octopus named "Octavia" and other sea-life, appearing unprompted for the lens during principal photography.  

Movie co-stars the legendary Indie Spirits Award nominee, iconic actor/musician Wings Hauser in the lead male role, Doctor Godard / aka "god," with Cali Lili as "eVe," and Candace Burney as “Lila." Certified on IMDB as “Triple F - rated,” meaning that it was written, directed and produced by a woman, making it one of the first (if not the first) narrative motion pictures made primarily by women. The project originated, in part, as a response to Cali Lili's own "MeToo" experiences and promotion of it’s “all female on-the-set crew” status, began during pre-production as far back as 2011 likely setting the current trend and weathering early discriminatory push-backs from various directions.  

Description of the film as "breaking the sound barrier," is reference to the lead female  "speaking over 51% of the film," and "shattering narrative structures along with glass ceilings"  in a poetic, fluid, dream-like style. The story's narrative is based on true-life events including a semi-autobiographical "coming out" story. Dedicated on-screen to victims of violence against women, LGBTQ persons and the environment - the dialogue centers on a surfer studying for her PHD in science, but who must work as a stripper to pay tuition and evolves into a debate involving the love-hate triangle between "eVe" as "everywoman," Doctor Godard as University thesis advisor / white male authority figure, and "Lila" / aka "Lilith" as eVe's black lesbian lover and spiritual "twin." The "Global Girl"  is described as a "greek chorus" in this modern-day re-telling of "ancient secrets."  Born organically from a graphic novel, the project is equal parts cinematic exploration, love song, declaration of independence, and political protest on behalf of all vulnerable lives in the balance.     

Songs on the soundtrack are described as " sexy-smart protest-love-songs, thick with lyrics and percussion, 'Rock N'Soul recorded with a diverse, inclusive group of professional live musicians, minimal synth. Cali's Singer-Songwriter Style ranges from Feminist Rap / Soul Hip Hop to Anthemic guitar heavy Psychedelic Folk-Rock, to Femme-Punk and World-Beat Grooves. 

 

The 13 song debut-album / soundtrack recently dropped, encouraging audiences to know the songs before seeing the movie and is available on Apple iTunes and all other music platforms
