Montreal-based ID Communications prepares Hollywood doc in time for European Film Market


Montreal, Canada (Friday February 5, 2010) – ID Communications Inc. announces acquisition of distribution rights for European and North American territories for “A War in Hollywood ” a film featuring Susan Sarandon, Alvin Bessie, which offers an incisive look at the relationship between euro-american geopolitics and the influence of the silverscreen during the peak of  McCarthyism in Hollywood and abroad.  The film will be presented at the European Film Market, part of the 60th anniversary of the Berlinale Film Festival.

   “Produced and directed by Spanish filmmaker Oriol Porta of AreaTV, ‘Hollywood’provides us with an epic view of the intricacies between war and politics during the Spanish Civil war, and in particular the role played by notable Hollywood star writers and actors such as Bessie, Hemingway and others , who were sensitized to the horrors of Franco’s regime, and took action ” said ID’s principal, Dan Shannon.
   "After a successful festival tour with several wins, and a theatrical release in Spain last fall under the title “Hollywood Contra Franco”, the rest of the world will finally be able to enjoy the research and literary characteristics of this picture.  It’s a testament to both the creative process in historic documentary filmmaking and a succinct reminder that we still do not know all there is to know about the forces that shaped the rise and fall of so many behind the silver screen during the golden age of Hollywood.” Said Mr Shannon.
