Ciao tesoro

    A nightclub with mysterious logos... a belly dancer playing with some golden veils... two acrobatic barmen...: a man, who looks very nervous, makes a proposal to a woman who's watching the show with a girlfriend: she will go to bed with him in an hour... The unusual adventure, described through the protagonist's memories, will end up in unexpected way. This short-film is a witty comedy that is focused on love. All characters (two men and two women) are victims of love, but each of them feels love in a different way. The film is a half-serious analysis of love through a non-consequential succession of ironic and paradoxical events (which is obtained by a non-linear editing). But every event is connected with each other by a hidden plot that will be revealed only in the end.

                    Freedom of Speech: Where are the limits? Who gets to say what? The N-word, Race, Bigotry, Power, Freedom, Denial, Pain...Healing. The day we arrived in LA to begin shooting this documentary, TV's Seinfeld star Michael Richards lost his cool to hecklers and retaliated with the 'N' word. In today's world of race-relations, immigration and entertainment, the ultimate question is: where is the line, and who can cross it? In the midst of heated debates over racial and ethnic identity, and with Obama in the presidential race, Americans consider the choice - to give up ethnic designations, or celebrate co-existing diversity. Caught in the cross-fire are millions of bi-racial and multiracial Americans. Competing against the mainstream on all counts, humorists and comedians provide meaningful insight into what really divides us. Exploring these questions exposes the very nature of where pain and laughter come from in a racially divided world. From the research of Dr. Darby LiPo Price, and multiracial comedian/Producer/Director Teja Arboleda, comes this fascinating discovery of comedy, from the perspective of multiracial/bi-racial comedians. This full-length documentary analyzes how mixed race comedians mediate multiracial identities and humor. Crossing lines of racial, ethnic, and cultural acceptability by their very existence, multiracial comedians reveal that meanings of race vary across ethnic combination, gender, place, and time. The film features the experiences, perspectives, and performances of 14 American comedians of more than one racial ancestry. Written by Teja Arboleda
