Event Recap of HBO Screening of “Nightingale”

Last night, we were invited to attend HBO’s screening of its new film, Nightingale at ArtBeam in New York’s Chelsea neighborhood. NIGHTINGALE tells the story of one man’s descent into the delusions of a fractured mind. Told with incisive imagery, energy and humor, it’s a compassionate depiction of isolation in the midst of a world ruled by social media. This one character drama tells the searing story of solitude and loneliness and offers a poignant look at how life has failed one man.

The venue was transformed into a theater for the viewing, which opened with remarks from HBO’s Vice President of Multicultural Marketing, Jackie Gagne. Four actors performed monologues by Nightingale writer Frederick Mensch, before the lights dimmed for the film to begin.

Heineken Hits a Branded Content High Note with Bossa Nova Documentary

heinekens-bottles-alley-600

As part of its “Cities of the World” campaign, Heineken chronicles the rise, fall and current comeback of Bossa Nova music with an intimate look at Beco das Garrafas—the vibrant cultural epicenter of the Brazilian music movement.

Translated as “Bottles Alley,” Beco das Garrafas highlights a collection of legendary bars and nightclubs on Rio de Janeiro’s Duvivier Street that are experiencing a renaissance. In partnership with the Hands Agency, Heineken has been working to revitalize the area since 2014.

The documentary, directed by Brazilian filmmaker Paula Trabusi, captures a sense of nostalgia for a time gone by and as well as a powerful optimism for the future. It starts with interviews with locals who lived through the genre’s heyday in the 1950s and 1960s. Neighbors and patrons reminisce about the moment in time when Beco das Garrafas was launching the careers of music legends like Elis Regina, Wilson Simonal and Lennie Dale, and residents were throwing bottles out on the streets in protest of the loud music and riotous energy emanating from the bars—hence the name.

Michael Jordan and Rihanna Defend Their Names

qiaodan-michael-jordan-china-600

Michael Jordan has spent decades crafting his image as a winner. That apparently isn’t helping in China, where he is embroiled in a legal fight over his own name that he will likely lose.

In China, the former Chicago Bulls star is known as “Qiaodan” (pronounced “Chow Dan” in a phonetic translation of his surname) so Jordan was not happy when Qiaodan Sports appeared on the scene there. His lawyers have been battling Qiaodan for using his name and his old number, 23, in a legal spat that dates back to 2012.
