Game of Thrones’ Iwan Rheon and Gangster Land’s Milo Gibson Star in a story of the unsung heroes who helped fight the Battle of Britain

Cinedigm Corp (NASDAQ: CIDM) announced today it will release the gripping new WWII drama, MISSION OF HONOR, starring Iwan Rheon (Game of Thrones”, “Misfits”, “Inhumans”), Milo Gibson (GANGSTER LAND, HACKSAW RIDGE) and Marcin Dorocinski (JACK STRONG) in select theaters, VOD, and Digital on March 15, 2019. Cinedigm will release the film in North America and has slated a Blu-ray™ and DVD release for late April 2019.

Based on a true story, the film is directed by BAFTA Awards Winner David Blair and written by Robert Ryan & Alastair Galbraith. The story follows Jan Zumbach (Iwan Rheon) and the brave pilots of Squadron 303, a group of fighter pilots enlisted by British Royal Airforce after a war-torn Europe has been ransacked by German Nazis. John Kent ‘Kentowski’ (Milo Gibson) has his work cut out for him when he’s handed the angry, defeated, and often maligned squadron to command. Squadron 303 works through language barriers, cultural differences, grief and PTSD to become one of the greatest secret weapons in the Battle of Britain.

Mission of Honor is the story of Squadron 303, a group of heroic pilots who fought in the skies over England in the Battle of Britain during WWII. These brave men were not just fighting to keep Great Britain free from the Nazis, but also to keep alive the memories of their own countries, which had been caught in the cross fire as Germany tore across Eastern Europe. Equipped with nothing more than obsolete RAF planes and secondhand uniforms, they flew for all of those who had become casualties in one tyrant’s quest for power.

Written by: Robert Ryan, Alastair Galbraith
Directed by: David Blair
Starring: Iwan Rheon, Milo Gibson, Stefanie Martini

Olga (Julia Vysotskaya) is a beautiful Russian countess and member of the French Resistance; Jules (Philippe Duquesne) is a French-Nazi collaborator who is assigned to investigate her case; and Helmut (Christian Clauss) is a handsome, high-ranking, yet naive German SS officer who once fell madly in love with Olga and meets her again when she is shipped to a concentration camp. While they recount their stories, the film drifts between the bloody end of World War II and the gilded, halcyon days when their destinies first crossed. Victim, bystander, or monster – director Andrei Konchalovsky collapses these identities, offering a new perspective on the Holocaust. Shot in stunning black and white, the film depicts the morally complex choices that one must make during dark times in search of PARADISE – a look at the past and its lessons for the present.
The latest film by the renowned Russian director Andrei Konchalovsky (SHY PEOPLE, RUNAWAY TRAIN, TANGO & CASH, THE POSTMAN’S WHITE NIGHTS), PARADISE premiered at the 2016 Venice International Film Festival, where he won the Silver Lion for Best Director and where the film was nominated for a Golden Lion for Best Film. From there, it won awards at the Chicago, Gijon and San Francisco Jewish Film Festivals, in addition to being Russia’s official submission to the 89th Academy Awards® for Best Foreign Language Film; it was shortlisted.
“Luminous… an unflinching look at the Holocaust.”
— Loren King, Boston Globe
Engrossing… Konchalovsky infuses the film with a sense of 
fate and spirituality. It’s haunting.”
— David Lewis, San Francisco Chronicle

Set amidst the decadence and terror of pre-war Germany, BENT is a harrowing yet inspirational tale of struggle against oppression, based on the landmark play by Martin Sherman. A chance encounter at a Berlin nightclub exposes Max (Clive Owen) and his partner Rudy (Brian Webber) as homosexuals during the “Night of the Long Knives” purge. After two years on the run, they are captured and put on a train to Dachau, where Rudy is savagely beaten to death. Inside the camp, Max finds the will to survive through the help of a fellow prisoner, Horst (Lothaire Bluteau), and the two men develop an unbreakable bond.
Winner of the Prix de la jeunesse (Award of the Youth) at Cannes Critics’ Week in 1997, BENT, which has been digitally restored for optimal viewing, was also nominated “Outstanding Film” at the GLAAD Media Awards, and captured the Best Feature Award at the Torino International Gay & Lesbian Film Festival. Oscar® nominee Clive Owen (Closer, Children of Men, Sin City, “The Knick”), Oscar®-nominee Ian McKellen (Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, Gods and Monsters), Lothaire Bluteau (“Vikings,” “The Tudors,” Black Robe), Mick Jagger (The Man from Elysian Fields, Freejack) and Brian Webber star, with cameos from Emmy®-nominee Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (“Game of Thrones”), Paul Bettany (Solo: A Star Wars Story, Avengers: Infinity War, Captain America: Civil War), Jude Law and Rachel Weisz.
“Uplifting and life-affirming… a film of rare power, passion 
and cinematic brilliance.”
— Rex Reed
“Triumphant… the acting is superb.”
— Film Threat
“A viscerally affecting film.”

South by Southwest® (SXSW), the long-running fest held in Austin each year celebrating the convergence of interactive, film and music industries, runs from March 8-17. To celebrate some of wonderful cinematic discoveries that have been Official Selections at SXSW, Film Movement opens the vaults and starts with the U.S. streaming premiere of THEORY OF OBSCURITY, the acclaimed documentary about the iconic renegade cult band, The Renegades, which played SXSW in 2015.
From the group’s formation in Shreveport to their success in the burgeoning San Francisco avant-garde music scene of the 60s and 70s, The Residents redefined what a rock band could be. With the advent of music videos in the 1980s, these masked musicians gained global fame as MTV darlings and serious art world figures. The doc from director Don Hardy Jr. features interviews with such pop culture and music luminaries including The Residents Hardy Fox and Homer Flynn, Les Claypool, Josh Freese, Matt Groening and Penn Gillette.
“There’s plenty of eye and ear-catching stimulation in this survey of the Residents’ 40-year career.”
— Dennis Harvey, Variety
“Fans will appreciate this loving probe into the determinedly 
anonymous history of S.F.’s superstar art weirdos, now closing 
in on 50 years of seemingly bottomless inspiration.”
— Adrian Mack, Straight.com
In addition, beginning March 8 and running through the month, Film Movement Plus will highlight past acclaimed SXSW films, including:

Celebrate the March 21st birthday of iconic French director Erich Rohmer (born 1920) with two of his most renowned films: FULL MOON IN PARIS and THE MARQUISE OF O.
Originally released in 1984 to universal acclaim, FULL MOON IN PARIS was heralded as “a small masterpiece” and “the very best of Rohmer” by The New York Times. The story of Louise (Pascale Ogier), a young interior designer bored with her life in the sleepy suburbs with her live-in boyfriend Remi, and aager to lead the life of an independent socialite in the city, Louise arranges to move back into her Paris apartment during the week. Balancing a steady boyfriend in the suburbs with a best friend, Octave (Fabrice Luchini), who makes plain his interest in her, and a bad boy musician who catches her eye at a party, eventually even the sophisticated and aloof Louise cannot untangle herself from the emotional realities of her various romantic encounters. Decades after first impressing critics and audiences alike, FULL MOON IN PARIS remains a modern, wry observation of youth and love.

Already an established filmmaker by the 1976 release of THE MARQUISE OF O, an adaptation of Heinrich von Kleist’s classic short story, the film stands as Rohmer’s “dazzling testament to the civilizing effects of several different arts, witty, joyous and so beautiful to look at” (The New York Times). Winner of the Special Jury Prize at the Cannes Film Festival that year, Rohmer’s film is set in 1799 during the Russian invasion of Italy. A young widow, The Marquise (Edith Clever) lives with her parents; her father is the commander of a citadel embroiled in battle. With the fort overrun by Russians, the Marquise is abducted by a group of rowdy soldiers and nearly taken advantage of when the Russian commander Count F (Bruno Ganz) appears as if from nowhere to rescue her. Later, the Marquise realizes she is pregnant, though she cannot decipher how the circumstance came to be. The Marquise’s scandalized parents banish her to their country estate, where she pens a letter to the newspaper announcing that she will marry the father, whomever he may be, should he only present himself. Rohmer masterfully adapts von Kleist’s multi-layered story, creating “the aura of a neoclassical dream, a fading vision of the virtue of gentility” (The Chicago Reader).

From director Milad Alami, THE CHARMER is an absorbing, slow-burning thriller, exploring class, race and immigrant identity; a 2018 theatrical premiere, it was a New York Times Critic’s Pick.
Esmail (Ardalan Esmaili) is a darkly handsome Iranian immigrant to Denmark, on the verge of being thrown out of the country if he can’t find a Danish woman to marry. He dresses well and frequents posh bars, easily ingratiating himself with attractive Danes who are seduced by his good looks, gentle manners, and apparent decency. But he’s a man caught between his self-interest and self-respect. Things get a lot more complicated when he meets a beautiful fellow countryman (Iranian singer Soho Rezanejad) who immediately grasps his game plan, but finds herself attracted to him nonetheless. THE CHARMER is a debut movie by a director who understands that a psychological thriller need not focus on violent crime. Rather, it wraps its head around the notion that small, seemingly insignificant acts may cause pain and trauma to those who become players in our lives.
“A carefully assembled, perceptive slow-burner.”
— Jonathan Holland, The Hollywood Reporter
“A sharply crafted drama that has elements of noirish suspense, the 
Danish-Swedish coproduction, which is distinguished by exceptionally
fine performances by its three leading actors, offers an incisive, 
penetrating look at the psychological disorientation and 
dilemmas of people caught between cultures.”
— Godfrey Cheshire, RogerEbert.com

When ambitious young correctional officer Aiman is transferred to the country’s highest-security prison, he catches the attention of the seasoned chief executioner Rahim. Aiman’s desire to become the hangman’s apprentice is not only professional but born of an unspeakable urge to reconnect with a past that haunts him. Far from being a conventional prison movie, this slow-burning psychological thriller is a “stunning” (Film School Rejects) and “tightly focused and ambitious” (Screen Daily) look at all the lives affected by capital punishment.
“[T]here’s no question that this Un Certain Regard premiere’s directorial flair and thematic complexity…should help further consolidate Boo’s own reputation as one of the region’s names to watch.”
— Boyd van Hoeij, The Hollywood Reporter
“Tightly focused and ambitious in its multiple themes…”
— Lisa Nesselson, Screen Daily

Marquise – Official U.S. Trailer
Nominated for Best Foreign Language Film at the British Independent Film Awards, the Grand Jury Prize at AFI Fest and a César Award for Jordi Savall’s music direction, MARQUISE is a lavish costume dramedy set in 17thcentury France. Presented in a new 2K digital restoration, Film Movement Classics delivers “exuberant, sexy and rollicking entertainment[1]” with this sweeping historical tale being released to Blu-ray for the very first time in North America.
Born into poverty, Marquise (Sophie Marceau) is a beautiful street dancer who found fame and notoriety among the seventeenth century aristocratic elite under the stage name Mademoiselle Du Parc. When the distinguished Molière (Bernard Giraudeau) and his theatre troupe come to town, Marquise mesmerizes the men, and joins the troupe. She marries Gros René (Patrick Timsit) and becomes a favorite of King Louis XIV, but it is not until Marquise becomes the mistress of rival playwright Racine that she finally realizes her ambition to become a great actress.
“Sophie Marceau is dazzling as the alluring Marquise: she captivates at every turn with her coquettish style and delicate beauty,” said Louise Keller of Urban Cinefile. “The entire cast is top notch, the production design excellent and the cinematography beguiling.” Variety’s Lisa Nesselson wrote, “An attractive cast, bawdy subtext, lavish production design and peppy score are among the pleasures in Véra Belmont’s energetically helmed pic.”

ICEMAN – Official U.S. Trailer
In 1991, a melting glacier revealed the body of a man. At first, people assumed he was a hiker. But then scientists discovered that he’d been dead for over five thousand years. This is his story…
The Ötztal Alps, more than 5,300 years ago. A Neolithic clan has settled nearby a creek. It is their leader Kelab’s responsibility to be the keeper of the group’s holy shrine Tineka. While Kelab (Jurgen Vogel),  is hunting, the settlement is attacked. The members of the tribe are brutally murdered including Kelab’s wife and son, and Tineka is gone. Blinded by pain and fury, Kelab is out for one thing alone – vengeance.  Kelab follows the perpetrators’ tracks. On his odyssey through the mountains, he’s exposed to the dangers of nature. Finally, Kelab faces not only his family’s murderers but also himself. Will he succumb to his urge for revenge or can he succeed in breaking the eternal circle of violence?
