COMING TO A FILM FESTIVAL NEAR YOU!
Winner in Milan!
Best Documentary and the RAI Cinema Award
From award-winning documentary filmmaker, Augusto Contento, comes SHADOWGRAM, a story of African Americans living in Chicago, following their emigration from the South and its Jim Crow Laws, we witness the broken promises and listen to their hopes and dreams. Their strong will to survive and thrive in Chicago’s south side is an inspiration and a story that must be told.
LOOKING FOR DISTRIBUTION
We are making the festival circuit and looking for a distributor for this important film.
Created in 2004 in Paris by Augusto Contento and Giancarlo Grande, Cineparallax (Cineparalleli Hobo Shibumi) is an independent film production company. Over the past decade it has produced 11 feature-length documentaries, all awarded and selected at major film festivals around the world and recognized by main institutions such as UNESCO, the United Nations High Commissioner, Italian, French, Brazilian, American Governments.
Cineparallax specializes in international co-productions, working with Italian, Brazilian, German, and American co- producers. Utilizing Regional and National Funds, Tax Credits and Tax Rebates, Cineparallax’s independence does not only mean producing niche products, but also being a company far from the so-called majors. We do not follow the conformists standards of Television. It means developing cinematographic languages hat create an alternative vision of reality. For Cineparallax, authentic cinema should not legitimize the mindset of a ruling system or the power of fashion, it must create "visions" and awake the imagination of the audience.
