===> (No SEX For) SUSAN HERO gets Asian Festival Premiere; catch it also at Camazon UNBOX

Director J Rosette’s second feature, the indie sci-fi cloning drama (NO SEX For) SUSAN HERO, will screen at CamboFest as an Asian Premiere-the filmmaker will attend and do a Q&A at the venue.

If you can’t make it to Cambodia, but you still want to check out this “indie cloning thriller” [FILMMAKER MAGAZINE], it’s now available as a download to rent or to own on Amazon’s UNBOX digital download service.

Camerado’s first award winning indie classic feature doc BOOKWARS ["Terrific" - LA Times; "A true slice of life" - NY Times] about the life and times of New York City street booksellers, continues to generate brisk revenue via download to rent or own from Amazon’s Unbox as well.

.watch as then-NYC Mayor Giuliani (now running for Prez of the USA!) tries, and fails, to shut them down!

===> Camerado’s next social issue dramatic feature, BREAKFAST, SNACK, DINNER (aka FREEDOM DEAL)  about the secret US bombing of Cambodia during the Vietnam War era, welcomes legendary DEVO founder Bob Lewis onboard as story consultant!

Bob may be best known for his involvement with the seminal alternative rock band Devo, but what a lot of folks don’t know is that Bob was a student at Kent State University during the May 4th shootings.

So far, he’s been able to contribute incredible anecdotes and insights about the whole KSU experience-which in turn forms one of three parts of the tryptisch that comprises BREAKFAST, SNACK, DINNER (aka FREEDOM DEAL)

Camerado founder and filmmaker Jason Rosette (now able to speak Cambodian after living in-country for three years) along with his trusty associate producer Vuth Tep, travelled recently to remote border areas which were bombed during those fateful B52 strikes: and found out what REALLY happened there.

BREAKFAST, SNACK, DINNER (aka FREEDOM DEAL); a feature film in development by Camerado-now with Bob!
