Credits roll after 10-day international film festival in Waterville - Press Herald
WATERVILLE — The 19th annual Maine International Film Festival wrapped up its 10-day run Sunday after presenting a wide selection of Maine-made, foreign and short films. About 10,000 people attended the festival, which is put on by the Maine Film Center and included about 100 films, panel discussions with filmmakers, art installations and recognition for special guests Robert Benton and Gabriel Byrne. I also heard from a lot of our festival guests that they really had a wonderful time, and our audiences here have been intelligent and appreciative. The festival opened July 8 with the film “Seasons,” the beginning of a weekend that included more than a dozen film screenings at Railroad Square Cinema and the Waterville Opera House. “What I love about the festival is not just the films, but that you get to meet the actors and filmmakers and talk to them about how they made the films, where their ideas came from,” said Pat Clark, a Unity resident who saw 25 films in this... Benton is known for his work in writing the screenplay for “Bonnie and Clyde” and for directing films such as “Bad Company” and “The Late Show. The festival also bestowed its Mid-Life Achievement Award on actor Gabriel Byrne, whose films “The Usual Suspects,” “Louder Than Bombs” and “Miller’s Crossing” all were screened during the festival. This was the first year that the festival honored two recipients with awards. “We’ve never done more than one per year, so it was very unique for us in that way,” said the festival’s programming director, Ken Eisen. “It was such a thrill to see Gabriel Byrne,” said Susan Watts of Waterville, a festival volunteer who said the chance to see three of Byrne’s films was among her favorite parts of the festival. “I love the chance to see the filmmakers,” she said. “Oftentimes they’re filmmakers that you might not know beforehand, but you get to see their films and talk to them afterwards. One of the most popular and lesser-known films of the festival, “Wild Tales,” an Argentinian film that stitches together six story lines under the theme of revenge, was popular with the audience, Eisen said. “I had a lot of people who said they wanted to vote for it for their favorite film, and I had to remind them that they couldn’t because they can only vote for new films,” he said. “That’s kind of the great thing about the festival, though. About one-third of the festival’s films were new films that had not been screened anywhere else, something Eisen said is part of the excitement of the festival. In addition to an emphasis on independent, classic and foreign film, the festival each year also includes films that are made in Maine or in some way feature Maine and the rest of New England. One of the most popular programmed items this year was a special exhibit by Brazilian filmmakers Ceci Soloaga and Ygor Marotta, collectively known as VJ Suave, who brought a mobile animation show to the streets of downtown Waterville. The duo, who were part of the film festival’s second World Filmmakers Forum, also were part of the draw behind the festival’s MIFFONEDGE art installation at Common Street Arts, Haines said. “I think it was the best attendance we’ve ever had at MIFFONEDGE,” said Haines, the festival director.www.pressherald.com

Rachel Casey, the young woman who was hit by eggs at a Donald Trump rally in San Jose, is a guest of the California delegation at the Republican National Committee. Pictures of the 29-year-old wiping egg off her face went viral after she and other Trump supporters were attacked outside of his campaign rally before California’s June 7 primary. “She’s tough as nails,” said Tim Clark, Trump’s California director, as he introduced Casey at a Saturday night reception for the delegation., but was working as a traveling physical therapist’s assistant in San Jose at the time of the rally. “I just wanted to go to the Trump rally and check it out. As she left the rally, “a guy started yelling at me in the Mexican language and flicking me off with his finger. So I gave it back to him and then turned around and flexed and showed him my Trump jersey,” Casey said. “They hated it, and they just kind of cornered me. ”. Casey was pelted with eggs and a tomato until security officers allowed her to enter a Marriott hotel and took her out a back entrance.www.latimes.com
Las Vegas man arrested on dozens of charges in connection with June shooting - Las Vegas Review-Journal
Shawn Eisenman was taken into custody at gunpoint July 7 and is being held without bail at the Clark County Detention Center. He faces five counts of attempted murder with a deadly weapon, seven counts of assault with a deadly weapon, two counts of discharging a firearm at an occupied structure, one count of discharging a firearm from within a vehicle within a prohibited... The shooting occurred about noon June 21 in the parking lot of Carburetor Exchange and Auto Repair by Ray, 4016 W. Charleston Blvd. A customer who at least two witnesses identified in a photo lineup as Eisenman was at the shop for his car that day, which the shop owner had been working on for a few weeks, according to the documents. The two began arguing, then witnesses told police the customer punched the shop owner in the face. After the punch, the customer ran through the parking lot to his vehicle. A few people in the shop — one of whom was the owner’s son — ran after the customer, and the group started scuffling. Seconds later, before the customer’s car was out of the parking lot, the customer got back out of the car, grabbed a gun from his trunk and fired several bullets at the group of people and the shop, the documents read. At the time of the shooting, the customer also had a newborn in the back of his car, according to one witness statement. After the shooting, in which no one was hit, the customer got back in his car and sped away. The shop owner called police and followed the customer in his own car for a short distance, but the customer noticed he was being followed, pulled a U-turn and again fired his weapon, this time at the shop owner’s car. The shop owner was still on the phone with police and was not shot. Police didn’t locate the customer that afternoon, but detectives walked the shop and documented the shooting scene. Later that night, the shop owner came home, parked his car and chatted with a friend standing on the passenger’s side of his car before the shop owner went inside. As they talked, the same customer from the shop shooting walked up to the shop owner’s driver’s-side window with a covered object, pointed the covered object at the shop owner and demanded the shop owner roll down the window. After the conversation, the customer left and the shop owner again called police, the documents show. On June 30, a pair of detectives sat outside an apartment where a car that matched the description of the car used in the customer shooting was parked. The car was registered to Eisenman’s girlfriend, and the couple had recently had a child. About 11 p. m., a man who resembled the customer approached the car detectives were watching. The man surveyed the parking lot, “looking at the other vehicles to determine if they were police vehicles. Aware of what the man was doing, the detectives asked for backup over the radio as the man got in his car and drove slowly, still searching for police cars and creeping closer to the detectives’ undercover car.www.reviewjournal.com
