DINOSAUR LAND // USA

Screen shot 2017-07-18 at 10.52.52

Dinosaur Land, White Post, VA, USA
This classic dinosaur park remains frozen in time, faithful to the original vision of Joseph Geraci, who opened it in mid 1960s. Evolving dinosaur designs have been added for the next four decades. Dinosaur Land mixes traditional creatures with number of fanciful beasts, including a 70-foot-long purple octopus, a 60-foot-long shark, a huge cobra. Scenes of dino-on-dino violence occupy a back corner of the attraction. A Triceratops gouges a T. rex. A Megalosaurus eats an Apatosaurus. A Giganotosaurus wolfs down an unhappy Pteranodon. The attraction remains in family hands and is currently managed by JoAnn Leight, his youngest daughter. It’s a treat.

I’ve captured this surreal image two weeks ago at the Sedlec Ossuary also called “bone church” – small Roman Catholic chapel, located beneath the Cemetery Church of All Saints in Sedlec, a suburb of Kutná Hora.  The chapel displays some of the world’s more macabre art and is also one of twelve World Heritage Sites in the Czech Republic. The ossuary is estimated to contain the skeletons of between 40,000 and 70,000 people, whose bones have been artistically arranged to form decorations and furnishings for the chapel.

Screening of a highly acclaimed documentary Prospects about amateur boxing prodigy ‘Gorgeous’ Georgie Kean to coincide with his return to the professional ring // London

PROSPECTS_poster lowres

If you like boxing and good documentaries, you don’t want to miss a special screening of a highly acclaimed documentary Prospects about amateur boxing prodigy ‘Gorgeous’ Georgie Kean to coincide with his return to the professional ring. The screening will take place on July 14th at 18:30 at Genesis Cinema in London.

You can secure your tickets here: https://www.genesiscinema.co.uk/films/events/prospects-tues-14th-july/

After a surprise defeat by a journeyman in his third professional fight, young Gorgeous Georgie Kean has a point to prove at the York Hall on Friday 17 July. But he’s faced disaster once before and it was all caught on film. Eight years ago, when award-winning Director Seb Duthy first turned his camera on a teenage boxing sensation to make the film ‘Prospects’, he didn’t know he would capture the dramatic moment Georgie’s nascent England career fell apart. After a four-year unbeaten run in the amateurs the Amateur Boxing Association suspended his coach and mentor Colin Wilson for abusive behaviour, tarnishing Georgie’s name and reputation. Now, in a high-risk gamble, Georgie has teamed up with Colin once more to rediscover his winning form. To find out how George learned to stay strong after defeat, come and meet him in person at a special screening at the Genesis cinema on July 14 at 6.30pm.

Candid Magazine said of PROSPECTS, ‘the film reveals for the first time the cockney violence behind Guy Ritchie’s ‘Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels’. Front Row described each fight ‘as crucial as a title fight’, while Topman Generation proclaimed the film ‘liable to change the way you see the sweet science’. Having premiered at the East End Film Festival and picked up a coveted critics award in Italy, PROSPECTS starts its general release at The Genesis Cinema on Tuesday 14 July.

Shot over five seasons, Georgie Kean and Marlon Mellish stake their lives on a career in the ring to escape the streets. Their club, the Times ABC is housed in a run down community centre next to Bemerton in King’s Cross – a housing estate notorious for murders and knife crime. For the club’s two teenage stars, a world of fame and wealth beckons in the big-money professional fight game. But first they must stamp their authority in the Amateurs. Together with a small team, they set out to become England’s top boxing prospects. But when they lose the favour of the powerful Amateur Boxing Association of England, they are forced to take the hard way to the top and risk becoming journeymen – boxers paid to take a beating in the ring.
