“A charismatic young indigenous rapper is the moral center of this searing movie. Haunting music. Powerful images. An amazing piece of work. This is courageous movie-making. See it!”
(dir: Little Shop Of Horrors, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, The Indian in the Cupboard)
In the middle of an environmental and humanitarian catastrophe a young poet raps in the forest.
My Blood Is Red is a music documentary with a very dark heart. It follows the fortunes of a young indigenous rapper as he tries to make sense of the violence being meted out against his people. His name is Werá and his lyrics are fuelled by the anger and sadness he feels, confronted by the state-condoned genocide of the disenfranchised indigenous of Brazil. On his journey he is adopted by Criolo – one of Brazil’s most famous music artists and godfather of Brazilian hip-hop. He’s also comforted and counselled by Sonia Guajajara, the internationally recognised indigenous leader and charismatic figurehead of the indigenous struggle.
Driven by beats and lyrics we descend into a world of official violence and end up at the largest assembly of indigenous people in Brazil – a demonstration against the government’s barbaric policy of arming farmers, loggers and miners. Thousands of painted and feathered indigenous people – men, women and children – hurl coffins at the Senate building and are repelled with tear gas and rubber bullets.
So actually, this is a film about genocide. And one young artist's response to it.
Because we present as a music documentary we are able to carry this message of the indigenous struggle to commercial and world-music audiences that otherwise might never hear of it. That is the power and the duty of the documentary form – to take an audience on an emotional journey that leaves them with a deeper understanding of the variety, and yet also the shared space of the human experience.
Like Werá says: “We are all Guarani Kaiowa”.
He’s still rapping in the forest today …
As it burns down around him.

A tribute to the artist Ilyas Kassam, capturing the visceral and meditative process of creation. Known for his large, sculptural works, filmmaker Daniel Fazio is invited to witness Ilyas in the studio environment.
We see Ilyas express his physicality onto the canvas, drawing inspiration from the organic movements typified by Isadora Duncan. Ilyas also recites one of his own poems over the visuals, reinforcing the omniscience of the written word and the importance it has as a figurative symbol in his work.
As he moves in and around the canvas, the camera joins him, filling the negative space. Eventually camera and artist move as one, with the filmic qualities mirroring the artist and his movements. The camera becomes part of the performance, the medium of the interplay between these two visual artists, tangled in a creative embrace.
Logline: ‘RISS’ is a candid, mixed media exploration into the life of newly-Olympic pro surfer Carissa Moore, peeling back the layers and exploring her sense of purpose.
Synopsis: In his new film ‘RISS’, Hamblin captures an animated vignette of pro-surfer Carissa Moore. She was the youngest ever World Champion and a talent that has gone on to win four world titles. Her success has met challenges along the way, which forced her to reassess her goals and understand what truly makes her happy. At her core, she is driven by love; to give and receive love, which she defines as Moore Aloha (more love). He captures a raw and electric look behind the curtain of a high-class competitive surfer. This film hangs out with Carissa during her 2019 competitive year, where for the first time in three years she is back in the title race, happy and focused.
Hamblin’s drive for both style and substance has set his work apart from most sport documentaries, which often include archive footage on repeat. Hamblin uses mixed-media to not only inform but entertain even the non-surfers of the world. It’s about telling a story, be it real or fiction, in a revolutionary, thrilling and visual way.
