As we head into the fall festival season, we have some great news about The Immortalists. A lot has happened since our World Premiere at SXSW, and this fall will be a busy time for team Immortalists as we crisscross the globe, screening the film to new audiences and provoking debate about longevity and futurism.
We will begin October with the California Premiere at the prestigious Mill Valley Film Festival, followed by a showing in Moscow’s 360 Contemporary Film Festival, the London BFI International Film Festival, the Hollywood Film Festival, and then the Philadelphia Film Festival– all in October!
But that’s not the end of it: We are thrilled to announce that we will begin our theatrical release of the film on November 28th in New York City and then December 11th in Los Angeles. This is fantastic news because a theatrical release is *extremely* rare for documentaries. The directors will be in attendance for the New York and Los Angeles theatrical premieres to participate in Q&As and lead fascinating discussions on radical longevity and indie filmmaking.
We got an outstanding review in On Milwaukee, when the film played at the Milwaukee Film Festival. Maxim wrote a great review (while omitting ½ of the directorial team!). Also, friend of The Immortalists Patrick Brice (director of CREEP) gave us a shout out in Sac Town Magazine.
Onward and upward! http://www.facebook.com/theimmortalists

Swimming in the Daylight: An American Student, a Soviet-Jewish Dissident, and the Gift of Hope:
In September 1984, Lisa Paul, an American college student living in Moscow and working as a nanny, enters Inna Meiman’s house for her first Russian language lesson. And so begins a two year friendship and fight for Inna’s life. Swimming in the Daylight chronicles Inna’s struggle to shed her refusnik status and to be granted a visa to travel to America, seeking medical treatment for the cancer that is slowly killing her.
Inna reveals an indomitable spirit as she endures a perverse reality as a citizen of the Soviet Union—she must deny invitations from countries in the West to receive life-saving cancer treatment due to her inability to receive a visa from her own government. This refusal, Inna explains to Lisa, is the Soviet authorities’ way of persecuting her and her husband Naum, a member of the Moscow Helsinki Watch Group fighting for human rights in the USSR. Spurred by outrage and the desire to help her friend, Lisa returns to the United States, vowing to do all she can to get Inna out of Moscow. Lisa stages a hunger strike, holds a press conference, and galvanizes American politicians to fight for Inna’s freedom. All these efforts eventually succeed in pursuing Mikhail Gorbachev to issue Inna a visa in December 1986, and she finally steps foot on American soil. At a time when international strife seems insurmountable and worries at home seem to paralyze, this story will teach people everywhere that it is the courage inside that defines a person and can change the future.
Fantasy Writer Ksenia Anske talks about her journey from Moscow to an American Fantasy writer. Her journey may not have been pleasant at all times, but she turned it around and made it a work of art. Her books are available on her website at
If you love to read good fantasy books, any one of her books is a must, but the one I would suggest right now is Irkadura by Ksenia Anske.
The story of a writer that has inspired many and will continue to entertain and inspire for many years to come.
