1.- Messages had long since reached our mailbox and comments asking if ZITRO games were available to play online. Were you aware of this enthusiasm among users?
What distinguishes ZITRO DIGITAL games, what are the features that characterize these games?

Of course we are aware of it! We start from an overwhelming success of our products in the face-to-face rooms. Link King, Link Me, 88 Link and so many other games that are extremely popular and recognized in casinos around the world, are being claimed by players, and also by operators, to be available not only in physical casinos, but also so that they are available to the players at any time through their mobile, tablet or computer. This growing demand has led us to increase investment in our digital business.

In addition, at Zitro Digital we continue working to cover another aspect of the online market, beyond the B2B channel, which is the B2C social game. Very soon we will present a new social casino in an exclusive application where they will meet, for the first time, all our great successes of videoslots, covered by multiple functionalities that will provide playful content, and the emotional, not financial, gratification of winning. All these games will contain the essence of the games that have triumphed in so many casinos around the world, but presented for the mere entertainment of the user.

Finally, what sets our games apart from the competition is our accurate math, combined with highly engaging graphics and sounds. created entirely in our Technological Campus in Barcelona, and we are happy to be able to offer them not only in face-to-face casinos but also through the Online and Social channels.

2.- You have just announced the launch in COLOMBIA, how long have you been preparing this path? For which new markets is ZITRO DIGITAL prepared?

Colombia is a very attractive market for being one of the first countries in Latin America with a solid regulatory framework for online gambling and an interesting growth potential. To this is added that Zitro games are known and very popular in the face-to-face rooms, which is why for us it is a market of great value.

Thanks to the fact that we now have all the necessary certifications, Colombian operators will be able to multiply their possibilities of cross-marketing of both channels.

Colombia will be joined by other markets that we will announce as we obtain the certifications and comply with the required and specific regulations of each of them.

3.- How have you promoted the company at the R&D level for this new path of the multinational?

To begin with, we have provided Zitro Digital with more resources. We have increased the economic investment, but we have also implemented changes in the structure of the teams and improvement of internal processes. This will allow us to advance in a faster and more efficient way when adapting the games of the face-to-face markets for online. And we can already see the first fruits of these changes! We count on being able to share many more news during this new year.


4.- What are your objectives in the first semester of 2021?

The first quarter of the year is key for Zitro Digital. We are about to launch our best game of all time: Link King for online casinos, and on the other hand I am very excited about the great novelty in the social business branch: our new social casino! As you can see, this year will be another year of great news!

Once upon a time, there were two friends, roommates, surfing the crest of the wave in Hollywood together. They attended events together, parties and to share, they even shared another duo of best friends as boyfriends on duty (Ben Affleck and Matt Damon). I talk about Gwyneth Paltrow the Winona Ryder, two actresses and friends who lived their rise to stardom together in the mid-90s.

However, something came between them. A script and a dream character. A unique opportunity that led to Oscar. Some called it treason, others causalities of fate. But the truth is that that friendship disappeared by magic.

Winona Ryder & Gwyneth Paltrow en los 55 Premios Globos de Oro (Photo by KMazur/WireImage)

It was the last years of the 90’s. Gwyneth had participated in several successful films as a supporting character (Seven) and already added a role as the protagonist (Emma). Winona, for her part, had been it girl for his courtship with Johnny Depp and modern film girlfriend with Bitelchus, Edward Scissorhands, Bram Stoker’s Dracula, The Age of Innocence Reality Bites O Little women, among other.

They both shared a career, a desire to succeed, a single flat and even dressed so identically that anyone would say they even shared a closet, but according to legend there was a little thing that was not part of that communion between friends. Apparently Winona was in possession of the script for Shakespeare in love (Shakespeare enamorado). And seeing how much her career had risen until then and her position as a fashion actress of the 90s, I absolutely believe that it came to her hands (another thing is that they had given it to her).

But the gossip assures that Gwyneth would have found the script in the house, falling so in love with the character of Viola that he would have pulled his strings behind Winona’s back to get an audition. And as we already know, he succeeded.

GUIDE | The steps you have to follow to be able to see an Instagram post not available due to your privacy preferences

To the actress of Stranger Things Her friend’s supposed move would not have sat well with her, especially when we consider that the film won seven Oscars, including the best actress statuette for Gwyneth Paltrow.

The rumor spread like wildfire, and although Gwyneth denied it more than two decades later, doubts still linger. Or at least the rumor lives on.

Be that as it may, the friendship suddenly ended. And looking at Winona’s career back then, anyone would think she shouldn’t have gotten so mad (after all Shakespeare in love (Shakespeare enamorado) is one of the most overrated Oscar winners in history), yet that Oscar must have landed like a real stab at her. Especially when we consider that the following year she was close to the statuette through a favorite movie like Interrupted innocence. Winona was the protagonist, but the campaign and the spotlight were so focused on Angelina Jolie that the Oscar for best supporting actress went to her, as well as all the attention and applause, leaving Winona in the background.

Just a year after her awards season shadowing, and as Gwyneth continued to climb the ranks as an Oscar-winning actress, Winona fell crashingly from the stars’ firmament after being arrested for stealing $ 5,500 designer clothes and accessories from a store. . She kept working but it took almost 15 years to regain some of the lost glory, and it was thanks to Stranger Things and The conspiracy against America (HBO series where it is wonderful). And although many viewers of the era have a special affection for him, we must recognize that his fame today is not the same as it was in the past.

However, the story did not end there. In 2009 Gwyneth referred to the matter – or that can be read between the lines – through a blog posted on her company’s website, Goop.

In the post, titled Evil tongue and living in negativity, she was referring to an examiga without naming names, but one that many assumed was Winona Ryder. “This person really did what he could to hurt me. ” wrote. “I was deeply upset, I was angry, it was all those things you feel when you discover that someone you liked was poisonous and dangerous. “

And then he makes a mention that could identify Winona. “One day you hear that something unfortunate and humiliating happened to that person. My reaction was one of deep relief … and happiness ” he wrote and then asked his readers “Why does it feel so good when you hear that something bad happened to someone you don’t like? “

It is inevitable not to connect his words with Winona’s arrest for something as humiliating for a supposedly millionaire star as shoplifting. That scandal practically cost him his career. They sentenced her to 3 years probation, 480 hours of community service, a $ 6,355 store refund and another $ 3,700 in fines, as well as being forced to attend drug counseling and counseling.

And although Winona has never spoken publicly, Paltrow denied the rumor again in 2015 during an interview with Howard Stern, calling it “Urban legend”. ?I swear to God I didn’t, I raise my right hand over the Bible. I swear to god” assured.

Being so different actresses, with such a differentiated image in front of the public’s gaze (Winona so imperfect and earthy, Gwyneth so seemingly perfect – who always gives the subject of conversation to her detractors – but with an angelic image), I think that in this story each one will believe who is most fond of him.

Ana de la Reguera is one of the most famous Mexican actresses in the world. He has had a career in Hollywood for 15 years, but really, today at 44, his great moment arrived. He worked in films like Cowboys and Aliens and Everything, Everything, and in series like Cappadocia, Narcos and in the mythical Aztec soap opera (when she was very young) Pueblo chico, inferno grande.

Today the movie The Zombie Army (Army of The Dead) premieres on Netflix, Directed by Zack Snyder, which tells the story of a diverse group of mercenaries which enters a post-apocalyptic and zombie-ridden Las Vegas, to steal a millionaire loot from one of its casinos. Ana plays a mechanic who is part of “the good guys” and the lead band (Ella Purnell, Dave Bautista, and Huma Qureshi).

-How was the experience of participating in this unique film for what you are used to?

-Very funny, it was a very long shoot, but incredible. From the cast, the director who is really particular because he not only directs, but also takes care of the photography, the script and handles the camera. I learned a lot on set, it was one of my best experiences in the cinema.

-What was the most attractive thing about the proposal?

-To begin with, they called me direct, I didn’t have to do casting, that was very special. And I thought it was going to be a small role, but no, it was a main character and not stereotypical at all, I was able to put it together and do what I wanted.

-What interested you about your character María Cruz?

-(Think). She is the opposite of me, she is an expert in cars and I am terrible at driving, she is a war veteran and I have nothing to do with it, I am ultra feminine. What you see on the screen is nothing to see me. But it is rude, but it also has a romantic side and in that I do feel identified, not in the links, but in relation to that view of life. There I did connect.

-How do you get along with this genre as an actress and spectator?

-As an actress I love it, it is always good to do the opposite of one, it is playful. As a spectator, I’m not into watching zombie movies, I like horror movies, but I’m not scared of them. Now that I participated in one, I am a fan of zombies and how it reinvents itself in genre.

-How was this time with a pandemic, how did you experience it?

-It was lucky in a way for me, since I filmed this movie and another just before the confinement starts, so I had some time to rest. Then I remotely started the animated prequel to this Netflix movie and am on a new project. A couple of months I was locked up and alone, but I worked a lot.

-You have been working in Hollywood as a Latina for 15 years, is that path still difficult, although at this time you are doing very well?

-Fortunately I have been working well, I live in Los Angeles, “I make a living” as they say, but when the streamings began and the United States began to understand that its success depends on having diverse and inclusive casts and I started to get better. He lived here a life, you already know me, but now they ask me for my tripe. Before I knocked on doors, now they call me. I think my age helps, I am a woman in my 40s and they are doing better roles for this stage of life. Everything is making sense, it is worth the effort.

Uncharted: first action-packed trailer reveals Tom Holland as Nathan Drake

After a long wait, we finally have the first trailer for Uncharted, the new movie based on the successful Naughty Dog video game franchise. Actor Tom Holland plays the young Nathan Drake, an adventurer who has been the protagonist of video games Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception, Uncharted: Golden Abyss and Uncharted: A thief end.

Do not miss: Director of Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City promises the most faithful adaptation to the game

This tape has been in production for several years, according to Collider, the first reports of an adaptation arrived in 2008, but the current version began to be worked on in 2017. Along with Holland we have Mark Wahlberg as Victor ?Sully? Sullivan, Nathan’s mentor; Tati Gabrielle as Braddock, Sophia Ali as Chloe Frazer, and Antonio Banderas in a role that is still unknown.

Uncharted is directed by Ruben Fleischer, a director known for Zombieland (90%) and Venom (35%). The script was in charge of the duo made up of Art Marcum and Matt Holloway, responsible for Iron Man – The Man of Iron (93%), Transformers: The Last Knight (15%) and Men in Black: International (43%). The film is a prequel to the video games created by Naughty Dog Studios.

According Collider, the decision to cast Tom Holland as the protagonist could have a negative impact on video game fans, as he does not resemble the original character. However, they also believe that Sony wanted to target a wider audience and take advantage of the fame that the Spider-Man films have brought to the British actor. Holland was introduced as Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe in 2016, in Captain America: Civil War (90%), and later appeared in Spider-Man: Homecoming (92%), Avengers: Infinity War (79%). ), Avengers: Endgame (95%) and Spider-Man: Far From Home (82%). In December we will see it in Spider-Man: No Way Home.

At the beginning of this year, Holland gave an interview to GQ UK, and stated that he does not feel very confident that he did a good job as Nathan Drake. These were his words:

As soon as you start worrying about ‘Do I look good in this take?’, Acting becomes more than just playing a character. I think there are elements of my performance in Uncharted where I fell under that spell of ‘I want to look good now. I want this to be my cool moment. ‘ I had to play this very tough and stoic guy, basically being Mark Wahlberg. My character is supposed to be a fucking action hero right now! Look, I haven’t seen it, so I don’t know if I made it. But it was an important lesson learned.

In addition to Uncharted, Sony is working on a number of The Last of Us for HBO, based on the hit video game of the same name. On the other hand, adaptations of famous video games continue, such as Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City, a film that serves as a reboot for the saga in the cinema. Previously we had six films directed by Paul WS Anderson and starring Milla Jovovich, and in addition to not being faithful to the original material, critics considered them very bad.

Netflix will soon premiere a live-action series and an animated series of Resident Evil, as well as an anime series by Assassin?s Creed, a video game that was brought to the big screen in 2016 and that was a failure in every way, despite having such renowned actors as Michael Fassbender, Jeremy Irons and Marion Cotillard in its cast.

Despite the setbacks, video game adaptations to film and television have had a good run in recent years, thanks to successes such as the animated series Castlevania (100%), from Netflix, and the live-action feature films Pokémon: Detective Pikachu (69%), Sonic The Movie (89%) and Mortal Kombat (74%).

Along with Holland we have Mark Wahlberg as Victor ?Sully? Sullivan, Nathan’s mentor; Tati Gabrielle as Braddock, Sophia Ali as Chloe Frazer, and Antonio Banderas in a role that is still unknown.

Train to Busan (2016)

One of the better known Korean horror flicks, zombie drama Train to Busan made international waves when it premiered in 2016, and for good reason. The action horror was the most exciting and emotionally engaging the zombie drama had been in a long time?World War Z wishes it could be this movie. The zombies in the film are properly scary: a rabid force of nature. Those infected turn fast, and don?t get any slower in their changed form, making for a literal race to presumed safety for the characters who happened to be on this train.

Train to Busan follows fund manager and dead beat dad Seo Seok-woo (Squid Game?s Gong Yoo!) as he and his daughter try to escape the zombie apocalypse on a high-speed bullet train bound for Busan from Seoul. Busan, the second-largest city in Korea, has cultural significance, as it was one of only two cities (along with Daegu) not captured by the North Korean army within the first three months of the Korean war. Because of this, refugees fled to the city, which also served as a temporary capital of the Republic of Korea. Here, Busan serves a similar purpose, as the peninsula is overrun by the zombie infection, from north to south.

Train to Busan would spur a not-as-good standalone sequel, Peninsula, but fans of the original film have Hellbound?a supernatural horror series from Train to Busan writer-director Yeon Sang-ho, out on Netflix in November?to look forward to. In the meantime, if you?re a fan of the zombie genre and haven?t seen Train to Busan, don?t walk, run (because these zombies are very fast) to a nearby streaming service. ? KB

The Gangster, the Cop, the Devil

The Gangster, the Cop, the Devil (2019)

An excellent choice for those of you who like your gory movies wayyyy more action-packed, Lee Won-tae?s The Gangster, the Cop, the Devil has the skills (and thrills) to pay the bills.

The critically acclaimed film tells the story of three men whose lives are set on a collision course after two of them become obsessed with eliminating the third ? a twisted serial killer already responsible for a handful of local slayings. Gangster Jang Dong-soo (Eternals star Ma Dong-seok) has already had a brutal run-in with the killer that has been dismissed as a rival gang attack, but he?s quickly convinced by rookie cop Jung Tae-suk (Kim Mu-yeol) that he?s just the latest in a long line of intended victims.

The duo agree to team up and combine their efforts to hunt down the murderer, but it?s a partnership that keeps violently disintegrating because they?re both so determined to stick to their own plans of attack: the gangster wants to destroy the killer with his bare hands, while the cop just wants to lock him up and get a promotion.

The Gangster, the Cop, the Devil is guaranteed to keep you on the edge of your seat as allegiances sway, but if there?s one thing you?ll be all-in on, it?s that the vicious Devil of the piece must be stopped one way or another. – KH

From Ru and Michelle to Patrick and Ian, these are the celebrity besties giving us the feels. (Getty/PinkNews)

There?s no doubt that there?s a lot of drama in Hollywood, but there are equally some amazing friendships ? especially with LGBT+ stars and their BFFs.

Everyone has that one friend that they can call on when things get tough, and what could be tougher than constantly being in the spotlight? Celebrity friendships are impossible not to love. They?re the relationships that want us to be part of their team and also give us slight envy.

Celebs typically have countless people wanting to be their friends, but there are some iconic duos out there especially with major LGBT+ stars and their BBFs.

Whether they?re celebrating a Hollywood premiere, getting tattoos together or sharing a quick smooch, these dynamic stars are absolute friendship goals.

Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart

Not only are they arguably two of the best actors England has produced, but Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart are also best mates.

In recent years, the national treasures have really flaunted their friendship by frequently sharing a kiss on stage, at premieres or anywhere with a camera. McKellen even took the opportunity to get down on one knee for Stewart at the premiere of Star Trek: Picard in 2020.

According to Stewart, the two became close friends after working together on 2000?s X-Men. Stewart and McKellen had adjoining trailers and would often hang out and drink tea or maybe even ?something a little stronger?, the Hollywood Reporter reported.

?And the charm of it was that we found that we had so much in common,? Stewart shared. ?And by the way, he married us, my wife and me. He performed the ceremony.?

Elliot Page and Mae Martin

Speaking of everlasting friendship, Elliot Page and Mae Martin are absolute LGBT+ friend goals. The Canadian actors, who are both the same age, have been friends for well over a decade after they met at a bar at age 19.

Martin said Page was filming X-Men when they were a ?weird sort-of homeless stoner?. They recalled how they connected through a mutual friend one night, and then ?years later Elliot send me a message saying he?d seen my stand up, and then we became friends?.

Last month, Page and Martin honoured their long-standing friendship permanently ? with matching coffee cup tattoos. Ugh, just the best!

Halsey and BTS

It?s no secret that BTS and Halsey have a deep friendship. The members of BTS first met Halsey at the 2017 Billboard Music Awards after the singer gifted the group with churros before they performed on stage. And yes, the best way to become someone?s friend is with food ? so says Halsey.

Halsey met up with the boy band after their performance in Seoul in 2018, and their friendship went full-circle after they dropped the hit collab music video ?Boy With Luv? in 2019.

The musicians have remained close friends with Halsey even posting on Instagram that her ?baby is ARMY?. BTS also sent Halsey their love after finding out about the birth of her first baby, Ender Ridley Aydin, in July.

RuPaul and Michelle Visage

The titans of Drag Race have been by each other?s sides for decades, and their friendship is just as strong now as when they met in the 1980s. Visage told AND Canada that she first met RuPaul in the club scene in New York City in 1988, but they didn?t start working together until 1996.

She said they?re so close that they can ?complete each other?s sentences? and just ?get exactly what each other are saying?.

Speaking to Little Mix star Jade Thirwall in an interview with Cosmopolitan, RuPaul described Visage as a ?good egg? and ?super smart?. Ru added: ?I feel bad sometimes on the [Drag Race] panel because we cut up like girlfriends and I don?t want the others to feel left out but we have a natural chemistry together.?

Serena Williams and Colton Haynes

Seven-time Wimbledon champion Serena Williams and LGBT+ actor Colton Haynes have one of those friendships that?s honestly picture-perfect.

Their close bond is well-documented across social media, and the two have dressed up for fun costume parties and supported each other during big life events.

The Teen Wolf and Arrow star shared that he broke down crying after Williams exchanged vows with her husband, Alexis Ohanian, in 2017. He wrote on Instagram that he ?cried so hard? that Beyoncé, Kelly Rowland and Kim Kardashian had to ?check on me?. Honestly, we?ve all been there.

Judge Rinder and Benedict Cumberbatch

At first, the Sherlock star and the gay ITV daytime star might seem like an odd couple. But Robert Rinder and Cumberbatch have been real-life friends for ages.

Cumberbatch told the BBC in 2016 that they met at Manchester University, when Rinder couldn?t do a part in a play and it was Cumberbatch who ended up replacing him.

?We got on very well instantly, and he was so supportive then of me,? Cumberbatch said.

Since then, the pair have been best friends. Cumberbatch officiated at Rinder?s wedding back in 2013, and it all went full circle when Cumberbatch even asked Rinder to be his best man when he got married in 2015.

Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures are still undecided as to whether or not the highly anticipated Dune adaptation will hit HBO Max or not.

Dune could still play in theaters exclusively after all, with Warner Bros. and Legendary still undecided about the film’s release plan. The highly anticipated adaptation of Frank Herbert’s seminal sci-fi novel has faced a long road to theaters like most blockbusters that were originally slated to be released in 2020. Dune was originally scheduled to hit theaters on December 18 when WB made the last minute decision to push the film back to October 2, 2021, with the film zeroing in on The Batman‘s release date and pushing that film into 2022.

When Warner Bros. controversially announced that their entire 2021 slate would be hitting theaters and HBO Max, Dune was included in that list, but Legendary has pushed back against this with a potential lawsuit. So has director Denis Villeneuve, with both advocating for an exclusive theatrical release that could give Dune that best chance of launching what is potentially a massive franchise. Talk on the lawsuit front had died down in recent months, but it seems like both studios are still hard at work trying to figure out what to do with one of 2021’s biggest blockbusters.

Deadline reports that Legendary and Warner Bros. are still unsure of whether or not Dune will go to HBO Max. Legendary is still negotiating for an exclusive theatrical release, but this has not stopped the streamer from promoting the film as part of their high-profile line-up.

Timothee Chalamet in Dune Movie Trailer

Legendary has another ace in their pocket with the recent box office performance of Godzilla vs Kong, the other franchise the studio produces alongside Warner Bros. That film broke records this week to become one of the highest grossing films since the onset of the pandemic and netted the biggest opening weekend of any studio film since March 2020. This will only serve to help Legendary in convincing Warner Bros. that Dune could perform well as an exclusive theatrical release, especially by the time October rolls around and even more vaccines have been given out.

Still, Godzilla vs Kong‘s performance also proves that a film can perform well at the box office while still being released on HBO Max. It will all depend on whether or not Warner Bros. wants to go that extra mile and push for as much box office impact as possible. With Dune only covering the first half of the original novel, Warner Bros. may want to release the film exclusively after all. The studio is also producing a spinoff series for HBO Max, Dune: The Sisterhood and with multiple books in the Dune series, there is huge potential for a years long franchise. Luckily for WB and Legendary, they still have a few months to decide.

Deadline reports that Legendary and Warner Bros. are still unsure of whether or not Dune will go to HBO Max. Legendary is still negotiating for an exclusive theatrical release, but this has not stopped the streamer from promoting the film as part of their high-profile line-up.

Timothee Chalamet in Dune Movie Trailer

Legendary has another ace in their pocket with the recent box office performance of Godzilla vs Kong, the other franchise the studio produces alongside Warner Bros. That film broke records this week to become one of the highest grossing films since the onset of the pandemic and netted the biggest opening weekend of any studio film since March 2020. This will only serve to help Legendary in convincing Warner Bros. that Dune could perform well as an exclusive theatrical release, especially by the time October rolls around and even more vaccines have been given out.

Still, Godzilla vs Kong‘s performance also proves that a film can perform well at the box office while still being released on HBO Max. It will all depend on whether or not Warner Bros. wants to go that extra mile and push for as much box office impact as possible. With Dune only covering the first half of the original novel, Warner Bros. may want to release the film exclusively after all. The studio is also producing a spinoff series for HBO Max, Dune: The Sisterhood and with multiple books in the Dune series, there is huge potential for a years long franchise. Luckily for WB and Legendary, they still have a few months to decide.

The shooting death of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins on the set of the Alec Baldwin movie “Rust” is a haunting reminder of what can go wrong on set.

Santa Fe County Sheriff?s officials said the 42-year-old and director Joel Souza were shot Thursday on the rustic film set in the desert on the southern outskirts of Santa Fe. Authorities confirmed that a prop firearm discharged by Baldwin, 63, killed Hutchins and wounded Souza, 48.

Hutchins was airlifted to the University of New Mexico Hospital, where she was pronounced dead by medical personnel, the sheriff?s department said. Souza was taken by ambulance to Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical Center and has since been released. Production was halted on the film.

As authorities investigate the tragedy, industry leaders will look for ways to avoid similar tragedies.

On-set fatalities have led to safety reform in the past. Here are some of the most devastating accidents from over the years.

“Twilight Zone: The Movie”

In 1982, actor Vic Morrow and two child actors, Renee Shinn Chen and Myca Dinh Le, were killed while filming a scene set in Vietnam for a film based on the hit TV series, “Twilight Zone.” The helicopter came down after debris from explosions staged during the scene rose 100 feet in the air and damaged the aircraft?s rotor.

In a rare case of prosecutors targeting a film production for on-set deaths, director John Landis and four others were acquitted of involuntary manslaughter charges. The families of the child actors settled civil lawsuits years later, and federal agencies enacted new rules for filming with helicopters.

“Cover Up”

In 1984, actor Jon-Erik Hexum was killed on the set of his TV series “Cover Up” after he accidentally shot himself in the head with a gun loaded with blanks. His mother Gretha Hexum filed a wrongful death suit against Twentieth Century Fox Television and Glenn Larson Productions in Superior Court. In the suit, the matriarch said the star should have been warned about the dangers of blank cartridges. A few years later, Gretha won an undisclosed out-of-court settlement.

“The Crow”

In 1993, actor Brandon Lee died after he was shot in the abdomen while filming a scene for “The Crow.” The gun was supposed to have fired a blank, but an autopsy turned up a bullet lodged near his spine.

Money and safety issues, including severe burns suffered by a construction worker, already had plagued the production. A makeshift bullet was mistakenly left in a gun from a previous scene and struck Lee during a scene that called for using blank rounds.

OSHA fined the production $84,000 for violations found after Lee?s death, but the fine was later reduced to $55,000. “The Crow” grossed more than $50 million. Before the “Rust” tragedy, Lee?s death was the last recorded accidental death by a prop gun on a movie set.

“Untitled  Military Project”

In 2013, an early morning helicopter crash in a remote river valley north of Los Angeles killed three people filming a planned reality TV series for the Discovery Channel. The filming took place on a moonless night, and the pilot wasn?t wearing night-vision goggles at the time of the crash.

Federal investigators later determined that a light used to illuminate an actor?s face in the cockpit hampered the pilot?s ability to fly. However, the National Transportation Safety Board faulted the pilot, who was among those killed, for flying in unsafe conditions. The agency later rescinded its determination that a Federal Aviation Administration inspector failed to recognize the risks involved when he approved plans for the shoot.

“Midnight Rider”

In 2014, camera operator Sarah Jones was run over by a train during the filming of a Gregg Allman biopic in rural Georgia. The death of Jones, 27, and the injuries of other crew members hit by pieces of a metal bed frame that was on the train tracks as part of the production, put a heightened industry focus on film set safety.

Parents Richard and Elizabeth Jones attend a memorial for their daughter Sarah Jones, an assistant camerawoman who was killed by a train while shooting the Gregg Allman biopic film, ?Midnight Rider,? on March 7, 2014 in Los Angeles, California. The remembrance of the 27-year-old camerawoman is organized by members of the International Cinematographers Guild and the production community who want to highlight the importance of safety over a production's schedule or budget. The accident which occurred February 20 on a train trestle over the Altamaha River in Georgia and injured seven other crew members.

The crew filming “Midnight Rider” did not have permission to be on the tracks. They were also not expecting a train while filming the bed scene. Consequently, prosecutors filed criminal charges against the film?s director, who pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter and criminal trespassing charges. He was sentenced to two years in jail but released after a year and fined $74,900 by OSHA. Jones? parents created a foundation dedicated to improving safety on film and television shoots.

“Cops”

In 2014, an audio technician recording a police shootout for the long-running TV reality series “Cops” was struck and killed in Omaha, Nebraska. The death of Boston native Bryce Dion prompted the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration to recommend additional training and safety instruction for the show?s crew members, including on how to film shootings from farther away. OSHA also recommended removing bonus incentives that encourage workers to take risks to capture more action-packed stories.

While two men stand outside a desolate wooden home in a darkened prairie, Ben Lovett?s tense string laden score gives way to the sounds of the oppressive wind as a woman covered in blood appears in the doorway holding a swaddling. She handles the bundle off to one of the men who quickly exits the frame. She remains emotionless as his wail pierces the silence.

Thus begins the folk horror western The Wind, from director Emma Tammi and writer Teresa Sutherland. A Midnight Madness selection of the 2018 Toronto International Film Festival, Tammi and Sutherland?s film uses genre tropes to explore a phenomenon known as prairie madness. Anyone who has read Laura Ingalls Wilder?s 1943 autobiographical novel These Happy Golden Years is at least somewhat familiar with the term.

A woman stares ahead in as another woman approachers her from behind in The Wind.

IFC Midnight

Prairie madness arose mostly in the wake of the Homestead Act of 1862, which promised settlers 160 acres of land?mostly on marginal land in the Great Plains?if they could live on it and make a decent farm within five years. Most of these farms were at least half a mile apart from each other. But many were a great deal more isolated. The work was brutal, the land unforgiving. Like one character utters in the film, ?This place is wrong. We?re not supposed to be here.?

Although the film shares its name with the 1928 silent film starring Lilian Gish, based on the 1925 book of the same name by Dorothy Scarborough, the only attributes they share are the isolation and the unrelenting ferocity of the wind. Sutherland attributes her fascination with the prairie wind to her time living in Kansas. Working in a community garden the old women would tell stories of settlers driven mad by the loud winds. The screenwriter researched the phenomenon by reading the diaries of settlers.

Transforming her research into a psychological portrait of four such settlers, in The Wind we follow Lizzy Macklin (Caitlin Gerard) and her husband Isaac (Ashley Zukerman) as their relationship unravels after a younger couple Emma (Julia Goldani Telles) and Gideon Harper (Dylan McTee) begin occupying the cabin nearest to their homestead. Told in a non-linear fashion, we slowly discover what led up to Lizzy?s blood-soaked introduction in the stirring opening sequence.

Through her screenplay, Sutherland not only unpacks how isolation caused prairie madness, but also threads in many factors that caused women to be more susceptible. There?s mourning, as we see in flashbacks that Lizzy lost a child during birth in their first year on their homestead. Immigration, as Lizzy explains she was brought over from Germany as a child and often speaks German when stressed. And then there?s jealousy as the young Emma crushes on Isaac, who she views as much stronger than her own husband. All of this is heightened by the land, which Emma laments to Lizzy that it ?plays tricks on your mind.?

Sutherland?s script also explores the fine line between religion and folklore. Early on we see Emma reading from a mysterious pamphlet. Later she taunts Lizzy by reciting the names of demons. Mara, The damner of souls. Succorbenoth, Bringer of jealous thoughts. Abbadon, The destroyer. Babael, Keeper of graves. Towards the end of the film, it?s revealed that this pamphlet was a religious tract given to both women by a reverend when they each first settled in the area.

Entitled Demons of the Prairie, the tract lists out 15 demons, most of which find their origins in the early Bible and other ancient religions. Director Tammi confirmed that while the demons are mostly real, the pamphlet with its striking cover featuring a black boney demon, with gangly limbs, oversized hands with claws, horns and pointed ears, eyes blazing yellow was a fabrication.

Although religious tracts pre-date the printing press, they became more common after its invention and were used frequently by Martin Luther. Political and religious tracts rose in popularity in the 1800s, with missionary-based groups like the Mormon church and Jehovah?s Witnesses still passing out literature in this manner today.

For much of the early white settlements in the American West, trading posts were an integral hub. They served as general stores, banks, post offices, and community centers. They were also where many writers at the time distributed pamphlets that ranged in subject from environmental observations to historical reporting. Local pamphlets collecting American folklore continued well into the 20th century. There?s even a resurgence today with projects like Ken Layne?s Desert Oracle that collects folklore and legends of the American desert or the Islandia Journal which seeks to do the same for the myths, folklore, cryptozoology, and more of Florida & the Caribbean.

The descriptors of demons listed in Demons of the Prairie eventually manifest in the behavior of both Emma and Lizzy, as they each succumb to variations of prairie madness. Mara damns their souls by twisting both of their minds. Succorbenoth plants jealous thoughts that disrupt their marital beds. Abbadon destroys the peaceful lives the foursome had been working towards. Babael keeps Lizzy?s mind forever on the grave of her stillborn son, the shadow of which colors the film from the very first frame.

With their film The Wind, Tammi and Sutherland join a long line of women telling tales of women in the American West. From Willa Cather, whose novels O Pioneers! and My Ántonia defined our collective idea of the Great Plains, to Laura Ingalls Wilder, whose Little House series idealized the American pioneer spirit. By fusing the everyday horror embedded in the stories these writers popularized with the aesthetics and psychology of films like Rosemary?s Baby, the filmmakers have crafted an unforgettable piece of folk horror that will linger on your mind, like a relentless prairie wind.

Detroit Mercy?s School of Architecture & Community Development (SACD) is hosting its first lecture of the academic year on Oct. 29 at 5 p.m. in the Loranger Architecture Building?s exhibit hall.

The lecture focuses on the book, Teaching and Designing in Detroit: Ten Women on Pedagogy and Practice, edited by former Dean Stephen Vogel and Professor Libby Balter Blume.
