Katherine of Alexandria US release date announced .

Decline Of An Empire “Katherine of Alexandria, a wonderful film starring amongst others, Nicole Keniheart and Peter O’Toole (on his last film role) will be released in the US under the title ‘Decline of an Empire’. I am happy to have created a collaboration, through ‘Cinema Music Consulting’, between composer John Koutselinis and KOA films. Katherine of Alexandria will be released on 12th August, by Lionsgate (US).
“Katherine of Alexandria, brought up as a nomad and living in the desert, was aged just 11 when Emperor Maxentius saw her whilst out on patrol. Consumed by her beauty, impudence and uncanny talent for languages, he abducted the child, killing her family. The slaughter was witnessed by her young friend, Constantine, who would later become Emperor of the Western Roman Empire. He never lost hope of finding Katherine. As a young woman, Katherine refused to submit to Maxentius’ offers of marriage and she continually denounced his brutal enforcement of pagan religion upon the masses. Still obsessed with her beauty, Maxentius brought Katherine before 50 of Rome’s finest scholars in an open court in Alexandria, where she eloquently demolished their arguments. When Constantine learned of Katherine’s whereabouts and imprisonment at the hands of Maxentius, he led his army from York in a desperate bid to save her.

“Katherine of Alexandria”

Currently working as music consultant with composer John Koutselinis for the wonderful epic feature “Katherine of Alexandria”, now in production in the UK.

Film Synopsis:

This film tells the true story of Katherine of Alexandria, otherwise known as ‘Jabal Ekatherina’, whose libraries (which she had opened for the public) were destroyed by Emperor Maxentius, and who was subsequently beheaded following her torture on a wheel of spikes in 333AD.

Katherine is probably best known for the ‘Katherine Wheel’ firework (also referred to as the ‘Pin Wheel’) which symbolizes the instrument of torture designed to break her. More importantly, she was the first woman of position to publicly denounce Rome’s false gods and her eloquent arguments with fifty of Rome’s finest scholars in an open court in Alexandria captured the spirits of ordinary people around the world.

It was Katherine’s belief in the freedom of faith that led to the eventual collapse of religious persecution under the Romans.

Of the 1200 buildings named after her, the most celebrated is the Monastery of St. Katherine, on the slopes of Mount Sinai, in Egypt. Keeping true to her beliefs, the monastery welcomes all denominations to enter into prayer.

Even as her libraries were being burned prior to her execution, Katherine gave a clear indication that some of her words would survive and had been hidden for future generations. Now, after 1,700 years, a diary (or “little book”) dating back to 333AD and written by ‘Jabal Ekatherina’ is discovered.

Bettie Page Reveals All

Worked with Oscar nominated, Emmy winning producer and director Mark Mori on the documentary “Bettie Page Reveals All”

In addition to various duties as an associate producer, I’m also working as a music consultant overseeing the film’s music and soundtrack production which is now in post production and scheduled for release this coming fall.

Film Synopsis:

Make way for the most photographed pinup, nude, and fetish model of the 20th century: Bettie Page. Her exuberant sensuality fired men’s deepest desires while singeing camera lenses.

The attitude Bettie dished out in her fetish photos was so incendiary that she was targeted by a 1955 Senate investigative committee as a source of teenage-induced depravity. How would that committee feel if they knew her body of photos would be credited with helping to inspire the Sexual and Feminist Revolutions of the 1960s and 1970s?

From countless magazine covers, to religious crusading, to incarceration for mental illness, this is the enthralling true tale of Eisenhower Presidential Era model, Bettie Page. It transcends the wildest of fictionalized notions. Her life experiences ranged from idyllic legends to nightmarish realities. All the while, Bettie hid her private life from fans — until Bettie Page Reveals All.

Bettie Page’s previously unknown personal life is as dramatic as her modeling career is iconic. Bettie Page Reveals All compellingly captures the story of an aspiring teacher turned model who unintentionally affected contemporary pop culture. That surprise role ultimately evolved into Bettie being viewed as our greatest and most controversial model.

As the first and only authorized Bettie Page film biography, the “Queen of Curves” emerges from 40 years of enigmatic seclusion to tell her story in her own words. Moviegoers will be immersed in Bettie’s modeling path by exploring a montage of iconic and rare photographs and film loops, including unseen images from private collections.

With commentary from people who knew her, photographed her, and made love to her, Bettie Page Reveals All is steeped in mirth, mayhem and mystery. The smoldering siren, who fans perceive as making sex fun in an era of sexual repression, finally steps forth with secrets she’s kept buried for decades.

Bettie Page, the icon, launches thousands of imitators worldwide. More popular today than Marilyn Monroe, she is regularly discovered by young men and women who thrive on the art of tease amid our hyper-sexualized society.

Featuring: Hugh Hefner, Rev. Robert Schuller, Olivia, Bunny Yeager, and the “Tease from Tennessee” herself: Bettie Page.
