Premieres at the New Jersey Film Festival on Sunday, October 2, 2016!

Lyme Disease has ravaged New Jersey and other parts of the USA for the last decade if not longer. It is a silent epidemic. The New Jersey Film Festival is very proud to be presenting the World Premiere screening of A Ticking Time Bomb -- an important and timely documentary on Lyme Disease -- this coming Sunday, October 2. Here is my EBTV Interview with A Ticking Time Bomb Co-Directors Tom and Tamara Balsamides:



 ***************************************************************************************

Four excellent short films will precede  A Ticking Time Bomb!  Here is more info on this screening:

You’re Just Projecting - Marinah Janello (Boston, Massachusetts) In this experimental film, which intentionally fragments the female body, popular images of women from the 1950's-60’s are juxtaposed with contemporary images, to alter and to satirize the male gaze. 2016; 2 min. With an introduction and Q+A session with Director Marinah Janello!

Racing The Sunrise - Amy Russo (Los Angeles, California) In this touching film based on true events, a resourceful and resilient young girl takes care of her dysfunctional mother, and her two younger sisters, who live with their chins just above the water.  We follow her through one day, the hardest day of her life. 2016; 17 min.

C.I.T. - Cara Consilvio (Cranford, New Jersey) Sarah and Lizzie are best friends. They live for their summers at Blackhawk Farm, times filled with hard work, friendship and horses. After ten years as campers, this summer, 18-year-old Lizzie will be a counselor, while 17-year-old Sarah is a C.I.T. (Counselor in Training). Sarah would love to be a counselor, but her late summer birthday seals her fate as a C.I.T. Everything changes when Sarah is told a secret that will change Lizzie's life forever. 2016; 19 min.  With an introduction and Q+A session with Director Cara Consilvio!

Tenderness- Emilia Zielonka (Gydnia, Poland) An intense psychological drama about a teenage couple, Irka and Milosz, who lock themselves in a hotel room for a single night. It seems they have a perfectly prepared plan and there is just one thought guiding them: our love is unique and everlasting. That night they spend together at the hotel will change everything between them  2015; 25 min.

A Ticking Time Bomb - Tamara and Thomas Balsamides  (Montvale, New Jersey) Lyme disease could be called a silent epidemic.  Thousands of New Jersey residents have been infected, but current tests for the disease are outdated and often inaccurate, and the course of treatment recommended by the Centers for Disease Control, and by many doctors, is often woefully inadequate.  This timely and informative documentary introduces us to individuals who contracted Lyme disease, and were then confronted by doctors, insurance companies, and the medical establishment as a whole, that did not recognize, acknowledge, or offer effective treatments, to alleviate the debilitating and prolonged effects of this disease. 2016; 54 min. With an introduction and Q+A session with Director Tamara and Thomas Balsamides!

Co-sponsored by the Rutgers University School of Environmental and Biological Sciences (SEBS) General Honors Program!

Two Enthralling Animation Shorts screen at the 2024 New Jersey International Film Festival on Sunday, June 2!

Much like similar filmmaking forms, stop-motion filmmaking requires careful consideration and planning from those who choose to utilize it. The product is a beautiful testament to the film’s story and its makers if done successfully. For the case of the cinematically stunning Tennis, Oranges directed by Sean Pecknold, and enchanting and enthralling Judy’s Garden, directed by Evie Metz, this is incontestably the case.
