THIS WEEK ON THE NDUSTRY, HOSTS AKIA & NICOLE HOST, INTERNATIONAL LEADER, ADVOCATE AND FILMMAKER, NYASHA VERA!
Nyasha Vera is a Zambian born writer and producer of the Virgin Cure Movie. An alumnus of the George Washington University School of Media and Public Affairs, she has over six years of documentary and independent film experience. She has recently begun her Virgin Cure Movie lecture tour in Great Britain at Manchester Metropolitan University and future engagements are currently being set in both the United States and Europe.
Her childhood was spent in Zambia and Zimbabwe, and her experiences there were the main inspiration for this film. An advocate for both gender equality issues and victims of HIV/AIDS, she has spent the past six years bringing these issues to the mainstream and her film project to fruition. She has worked hand in hand with HIV/AIDS organizations in Africa and the United States, and looks forward to raising awareness to a worldwide audience regarding rape, HIV/AIDS and its devastating aftermath.
The Virgin Cure Movie features the lives of four broken, young girls who share a common link--they are all victims of child rape in South Africa. An atrocity and common practice in this area, these rapes are thought to be associated with the “virgin cure” myth. They share their painful stories in hopes of preserving the purity and health of other infants and children, in their region and around the world.

This week we review "Mad Max: Fury Road" starring Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron and Nicholas Hoult directed and written by the original Mad Max director himself, George Miller. It's been 30 years since we last saw the post apocalyptic desert ravaged world of the title character "Mad" Max Rockatansky. From the trailers, the car chases seem more extravagent, the explosions seem bigger and the bizarro cast of mad inhabitants seem even more bizarre. Does the future really belong to the Mad? Tune in this Sunday to find out.
We're reviewing George Clooney's new kid friendly, sci-fi offering "Tomorowland" today at 1:30 PM PST. This Disney produced flick is helmed by Brad Bird and features Hugh Laurie, and new-comers Britt Robertson and Raffey Cassidy.

From IMDb: Bound by a shared destiny, a teen bursting with scientific curiosity and a former boy-genius inventor embark on a mission to unearth the secrets of a place somewhere in time and space that exists in their collective memory.
Debra Granik, director, nominated for Academy Award, and co-writer of Winter’s Bone, which was nominated for four Oscars, including Best Picture, and won the Grand Jury Prize at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival. Granik’s first feature film, Down to the Bone, was awarded the Best Director prize at the 2004 Sundance Film Festival. She is known for her amazing work with actors, essentially launching the careers of both Vera Farmiga and Jennifer Lawrence. Her work is known for an instinctive, collaborative style that Granik describes as “late-breaking global neorealism.” Granik’s most recent offering, the documentary Stray Dog, began with a chance encounter while scouting and casting Winter’s Bone. Granik met Ron “Stray Dog” Hall in the Biker Church of Branson and cast him as the film’s estranged father, Thump Milton. Of her work she says, “The question I’ve had for most of my life is, ‘How are you coping?’ Some people have these small, positive schemes for survival, a kind of strength that I am attracted to, maybe because I’m prone to the blues.” In Hall she found a worthy subject—one whose humor and lack of self-consciousness had the potential to make the plight of Vietnam vets accessible to a broader audience.
