Zion was born on September 29, 1997 in Columbus, OH. Due to his condition (Caudal Regression Syndrome...born with no legs), and his birth mother's inability to care for him, Zion was immediately thrust into the foster care system. Thus, his journey to find a permanent home and a someone to call "mom" began. Over the course of the next 16 years Zion moved numerous times and found himself in a variety of circumstances and environments...many of them unfavorable. There were situations when Zion was mentally abused, physically bullied, and underfed...but he remained optimistic (faith in God). Being physically different from others didn't help, but Zion used a positive mindset, gracious demeanor, and diligent study habits to make friends and excel academically. Zion was introduced to the sport of wrestling while in elementary school, but initially didn't fare very well...in fact, he didn't win a match for several years. Upon entering Massillon High School, Zion met Coach Gil Donahue who recognized his passion for the sport and relentless work ethic. A wonderful friendship and bond was forged. Over the next 3 years Zion improved his wrestling technique and hit the weight room like a man possessed. An amazing transformation followed! Part of this miraculous course of events included Zion being adopted by a woman who had been praying for a son for years! In dramatic fashion, the process was completed only within days before Zion was officially scheduled to be legally aged-out (no chance of adoption). In his senior year, Zion finished the season 33-15 and was one match from qualifying for the D-I Ohio High School State Wrestling Championships. In an incredible display of heart and determination, Zion wrestled his opponent (a 20 pd. weight differential) beyond the grueling 6 minutes of regulation and 2 overtimes...only to fall 1-0 in sudden death. The fans in the packed gymnasium rose to their feet and zealously applauded Zion's courageous effort. A few months later Zion went on to capture his second high school track wheel chair racing title at the state championships. Zion's herculean efforts hadn't gone unnoticed as a Hollywood producer documented his journey during senior year. The film "Zion" garnered critical acclaim at the prestigious Sundance Film Festival (2018) and global media exposure (it's currently available on Netflix). Zion was recruited by several colleges to wrestle and chose to attend Kent State (Tuscarawas)...where he spent the following 2 years steadily improving his skills and finding success at the varsity level. With his confidence and national ranking on the rise, Zion decided to embark on his toughest mission to date...becoming the first American Athlete to compete in both the Olympic (wrestling) and Paralympic (wheelchair racing) Games in Tokyo (2020). Understanding the magnitude of this difficult challenge, Zion has surrounded himself with a very dedicated and highly supportive team...including budding friendships with Olympic/World Champion Jordan Burroughs and undefeated (133-0) 4x NCAA titlist Joey Davis. Due to his tremendous upper body strength and athleticism, Zion is also pursuing interests in power lifting (bench press), wheelchair bodybuilding, and the circus arts. In addition to his brutal training/practice regimen, Zion stays busy as a motivational speaker. The moral of Zion's inspirational story is that things don't always go smoothly in life...but in order to succeed, you must adapt to your individual circumstances. Priding himself in hard work, Zion offers that there are no excuses...or shortcuts! It's all about faith, passion, and perseverance. Zion urges others to "Be Greater Than" > ...the obstacles you face. YOU, and only YOU are in control of your destiny!

This is Covid 411, the latest on Omicron and other COVID variants, and new hotspots for January 6th, 2022. So what's really going on at hospitals? We hear Omicron is mild yet hospitalizations are so high systems are breaking. Mostly, the pain is from staff shortages, a combination of self-imposed shortages due to vaccine mandates and staff home sick with Omicron. ERs are getting crushed with people trying to just get tested for COVID. And two-thirds of patients in some places, test positive while in the hospital for something else. Hospitals are saying COVID patients aren't as sick as in previous surges, ICUs aren't as full, and ventilators aren't needed as much. In Chicago it's a win for teachers and additional losses for students and their parents. Classes were cancelled for a second day after failure to satisfy the teacher's union around safety protocols. The union wants remote learning, but Chicago's public school leaders say that didn't work and schools can safely stay open with protocols in place. It certainly won't help boost booster getting, but U.S. health officials said they are not changing the definition of “fully vaccinated” to include boosters. They're just urging Americans to stay “up to date” on their protection by getting booster shots. That means federal vaccination mandates for travel or employment won't require a booster. The number of Omicron breakthrough infections no longer supports the notion this is a pandemic of the unvaccinated, but France's President went on the attack anyway. Using French vulgarity, Emmanuel Macron said his strategy is to keep pressuring the unvaccinated. Lawmakers are currently debating whether or not to ban the unvaccinated from leisure activities like eating out. And the Grammy goes to…we'll have to wait til later to find out. The 64th annual industry self-celebration event is postponed due to Omicron. It was going to be January 31, now there's no telling when it will happen. Also, the famed Sundance Film Festival is moving all its in-person events in Utah online. In the United States, cases were up 254%, deaths are down 3%, and hospitalizations are up 51% over 14 days. The 7-day average of new cases has been trending up since December 14. The five states that had the most daily deaths per 100,000 are Wyoming, Ohio, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and New Hampshire. There are 15,951,678 active cases in the United States. The five areas with the greatest increase in hospitalizations per capita: Puerto Rico 613%, Louisiana 336%, the U.S. Virgin Islands 314%. Florida 264%. And Washington, DC 258%. The top 10 areas with the highest number of recent cases per capita according to The New York Times: Pitkin, CO. Miami-Dade, FL. Essex, NJ. Summit, CO. New York City, NY. Nassau, NY. Vega Baja, PR. Putnam, NY. Teton, WY. And Passaic, NJ. There have been at least 832,115 deaths in the U.S. recorded as Covid-related. The top 3 vaccinating states by percentage of population that's been fully vaccinated: Vermont at 77.5%, Rhode Island at 76.8%, and Maine at 76.5%. The bottom 3 vaccinating states are Wyoming at 47.5%, Mississippi at 47.9%, and Alabama at 48%. The percentage of the U.S. that's been fully vaccinated is 62.2%. Globally, cases were up 156% and deaths down 11% over 14 days, with the 7-day average trending up since October 15. There are now over 35 million active cases around the world, at 35,993,713. The five countries with the most new cases: The United States 704,661. France 332,252. The U.K. 194,747. Italy 189,109. And Spain 137,180. There have been at least 5,464,589 deaths reported as Covid-related worldwide.

This week Host, Cirina Catania talks with the ever-extraordinary electronic musician, Rhys Fulber. And she shares some great news from Tim Cook and the folks at Apple...Lumafusion has been awarded "Best Video App for 2021," on the App Store. You will love this conversation with Rhys. He is a truly international musical genius who was born in Vancouver of a German father and a mother from Great Britain. Rhys grew up with the sounds of Led Zeppelin, Kraftwerk and the local punk rockers blasting from his father's recording studio. At the age of 13 he began drumming, sometimes gigging with his Dad, and he was always at the studio. In 1984, he became interested in electronic music and once he got his first synthesizer, life changed for him! He became friends with Bill Leeb, who had just left Skinny Puppy. Rhys' early adventures included collaborations with Front Line Assembly and eventually tours with that group as well as Delirium well into the late 90's. It was fun talking with him and I found him to be quite understated when it comes to talking about himself…He mentions the time when Sara Mc Lachlan dropped in on him and liked what she heard. They collaborated on that work! And a few years later, he worked with Sinead O'Connor. Of course, we talk about the GEAR that he uses to tour and create his electronic music, and I'm sure you'll find it fascinating.

Following its premiere at the 2021 Sundance Film Festival fellow film critic Emily Tannenbaum, joined me for this episode of Carolyn Talks..., to discuss Mass, a film that asks and in a sense answers the question of how do you have the most difficult conversation of your life with the people who possibly hate you the most?Written and directed by Fran Kranz, Mass is an emotionally intense and at times heartrending film centered around four parents having the most difficult conversation of their life, as they grapple with the why and how of a devastating tragedy that strikes their families. Taking place over the course of one day, set in the conference room of a nondescript protestant in a small suburban American town where Linda (Ann Down), Gail (Martha Plimpton), and their husbands Jay (Jason Issacs) and Richard (Reed Birney) are brought together by a mediator for the couples to find some sort of understanding about the grief, anger and confusion they're each dealing with.With just each other to react to and the minimum of props to provide a distraction the cast give extremely impressive performances as their characters go through the ebb and flow of the intense emotions their characters experience in a conversation that seems to go no where. But it's in this apparent cycle that you realize that somethings have no rational explanation. That there will never be satisfactory answers when the lives of children are taken in an instant. That grief is a constant when tragedy is sudden and devastating. With his direction and script Kranz brilliantly shows that life is unpredictable and humanity is fragile, and in order to cherish the memories we have to have to learn how to let go, even when we don't want to.Mass was released in theatres on on October 8, 2021.

There's been a lot of buzz about Portraits From A Fire, and it's all well deserved. The feature film – which won filmmaker Trevor Mack the award for Best BC Emerging Filmmaker at the 2021 Vancouver International Film Festival – is a gutting, poignant, and funny masterwork, and it is finally available for all to see on VOD. Portraits from a Fire centres on Tyler (William Lulua), a 16-year-old member of the Tsilhqot'in First Nation who has the dreams of any kid with a camera: a career launch at the Sundance Film Festival. But for now, he's wearing a tuxedo t-shirt, and debuting a space film with cardboard characters for an audience of three at his reserve. It's a dispiriting turnout for Tyler, who already experiences pixilated visions of a mother he never knew and lives at arms' length with a father (Nathaniel Arcand) who avoids him.And then Tyler meets a mysterious young man named Aaron (Asivak Koostachin). With the input of Aaron and the discovery of a long-lost digital memory card, Tyler comes to see his path, not in films about a sci-fi future, but in preserving the past. Portraits From A Fire is a gut-punch of a journey, completely unpredictable, about trauma and blood memory and why we create art. In this fascinating and gripping episode of the YVR Screen Scene Podcast, filmmaker Trevor Mack reflects on his own journey with this remarkable film. Episode sponsor: Fish Flight Entertainment

Friendly Professor Emerita at Columbia Journalism School.Julie Cohen (Director/Producer) is the Academy Award® nominated, Emmy winning director and producer of RBG (Magnolia, Participant, CNN Films, 2018) along with Betsy West. Her film My Name is Pauli Murray, also directed with West, premiered at the 2021 Sundance Film Festival.Previous films she's directed include The Sturgeon Queens (7th Art Releasing; Berlinale, 2015; Best of the Fest, San Francisco Jewish Film Festival), and Ndiphilela Ukucula: I Live to Sing (2014 New York Emmy Award for Best Arts Program).Before she started making documentaries, Julie was a longtime staff producer for NBC News. She's been an enthusiastic amateur cook and baker ever since her parents bought her a Cuisinart for her bat mitzvah in the 1970s.Their current film is called JULIA. The film tells the remarkable story of the groundbreaking cookbook author and television superstar who forever changed the way Americans think about food, about television, and even about women.Using a treasure trove of never-before-seen archival video, personal still photos, first-person narratives, and cutting-edge, mouth-watering food cinematography, the documentary will trace Julia Child's surprising path, from her struggles to create and publish the revolutionary ‘instant' classic Mastering the Art of French Cooking (1961, Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group), to her empowering personal story of a woman in her 50s, finding her calling as an unlikely television sensation.[presto_player id=50611]This is the first feature-length documentary solely devoted to Julia Child, and will illuminate her casual upheaval of the male-dominated culinary and television worlds.Almost single-handedly, Julia Child upended the mythology that women could not hold their own at the highest levels of creative gastronomy, and that the only women Americans wanted to see on TV were young, submissive, and conventionally beautiful.JULIA is produced with the full cooperation of Julia Child's friends, family, and the Julia Child Foundation. It follows the highly-acclaimed documentary, RBG, executive produced by CNN Films, directed and produced by West and Cohen through their company Storyville Films, and edited by Carla Gutierrez, who will also edit JULIA.The film comes out Nov 12 in-theatres NY/LA followed by nationwide expansion.In this episode we not only discuss the making of Julia and RBG but also cover how they approach documentary, the craft of tell stories and much more.

Being a podcaster now for over 600 episodes I've heard all sorts of stories on how people make it in the film business. From Sundance darlings to blind luck. Now today's guest story is easily one of the most incredible and entertaining origin stories I've ever heard. We have on the show today award-winning director, producer, and screenwriter, Sacha Gervasi.Sacha won the screenwriter lottery with his first-ever screenplay, which was a un-produceable short film script, caught the eye of the legendary Steven Spielberg. That script, My Dinner with Herve would eventually be expanded and released in 2018 by HBO. The film stars the incomparable, Peter Dinklage. Unlike most writers/directors who go on to produce their debut films, Gervasi's 1993 entry project wasn't made until just three years ago. I promise you, Sacha spills every detail of the fascinating story of his encounter with Hervé Villechaize, the famous little person from shows like Fantasy Island and films like James Bond's The Man with the Golden Gun. Hervé was arguably one of the most famous people in the world in the late '70s and early 80's. Sacha sat with Herve in a marathon interview, and the connection they forge during their brief, yet impactful meet.After his life-changing encounter with the Fantasy Island star, which followed Hervé's abrupt and unfortunate suicide, Sacha was determined to get his story told in its entirety and justifiably. He ditched his mid-level journalism job in England and moved to Los Angeles to attend film school at UCLA after developing the script for My Dinner with Herve. While on the climb-up, Sacha wrote screenplays for The Big Tease (1999) and The Terminal (2004) which was directed by Steven Spielberg and starred Tom Hanks. The comedy-drama film grossed $219.4 million at the Box office with a $60 million budget and has become a holiday classic in the UK.Tom Hanks played an Eastern European tourist who unexpectedly finds himself stranded in JFK airport, and must take up temporary residence there because he is denied entry into the United States and at the same time is unable to return to his native country because of a military coup.In 2008, Sacha made his documentary directorial debut and executive produced Anvil! The Story of Anvil. The amazing documentary premiered at the 2008 Sundance Film Festival about a heavy metal band that never gave up on their dreams of being a successful band. Anvil was established in 1978 and became one of the most influential yet commercially unsuccessful acts with thirteen albums. The documentary ranks at 98% on Rotten Tomatoes.He also directed the 2012 film Hitchcock, a story about the relationship between Alfred Hitchcock and his wife, Alma Reville during the filming of Psycho (1969). It starred Anthony Hopkins, Helen Mirren, and Scarlet Johansson. Sasha is such an interesting human being, I had such a ball talking with him. We talk about the film business, his origin stories, his screenwriting craft, what he's doing now, and so much more.Enjoy my entertaining conversation with Sacha Gervasi.
