Regenerate is in the final stages of post production on the feature documentary, I Will Find You – the story of four individuals who embark on a dangerous journey to find their loved ones and others who were illegally detained and “disappeared” during Nepal’s ten-year civil war…and the transformation of Nepal, many of her people and our heroes from victims to human rights advocates/activists.
In 2008, at the request of the Nepalese human rights organization The Conflict Victims Committee, Regenerate started the film, and promised to deliver it to the victims of enforced disappearances. Last spring, Regenerate Films returned to Nepal for an historic screening of the film in progress. Next year, Regenerate will return to Nepal to fulfill our covenant. iwillfindyouthemovie.com

by adminon 11/11/2009 | Comments Off on Regenerate Films’ ‘My Suicide’ filmmaker to receive audience with Pope Benedict XVI
[PRESS Release —November 11, 2009]
Festival Circuit Winner to be Part of Pontifical Council for Culture Event on Saturday, November 21.
David Lee Miller, award-winning writer/director of the teen dramedy My Suicide, has been invited to attend a unique cultural meeting with Pope Benedict XVI on Saturday, November 21, 2009 in the Vatican’s Sistine Chapel.
The event marks the 10th Anniversary of Pope John Paul II’s Letter to Artists in which the Holy See put into writing its enthusiastic support for artists and their search for spiritual and religious inspiration. Once again, the Papacy is seeking to create “a precious and significant occasion of renewed dialogue between the Church and artists in different fields.” Miller will join the historic gathering, which will occur on the 45th anniversary of a similar event that took place with Pope Paul VI.
“To receive an invitation for an event of this magnitude is truly humbling, and one of those life experiences I know I will never forget,” said Miller. “It is truly an honor for our film to be included in the diverse company of such world-renowned artists.”
My Suicide recently came to the attention of the Holy See after winning the Crystal Bear at this year’s Berlin Film Festival, and after sweeping the Giffoni International Film Festival in Southern Italy, where it won Best Film, the Jury Grand Prize, the My Movies Best Feature and the Audience Award for Miller’s fascinating look into the psyche of an American teenager. The groundbreaking film has since won 16 international festival awards in the last several months and has sparked repeat viewings wherever it plays. The film plans to release nationally in 2010.
