‘Get a Job’ in Spain for Marbella film fest MARBELLA, Spain — “Get a Job” is ready to get found in translation. Written and directed by Brian Kohne and produced entirely on Maui, the uproarious, award-winning slapstick comedy will have its European premiere Sunday afternoon at Spain’s Marbella Film Festival. Starring popular musical performers Willie K and Eric Gilliom with cameos by many of the islands’ top enertainers and well-known Mauians as co-stars and extras, the film follows a week in the lives a harried employment counselor and a virtually unemployable client. Kohne and his longtime writing partner Ernesto Ocampo completed a Spanish subtitle version of the script for the Marbella festival, where Kohne and star Gilliom will make appearances. The film has already taken prizes in film festivals on the Big Island, Las Vegas and Detroit. “We are excited to share our Hawaiian-style farce with the audiences in Marbella, and in the process of translation we discovered the humor to be quite conducive to Spanish translation. ***** ‘When the Mountain Calls’ MACC premiere KAHULUI — “When the Mountain Calls,” a new documentary about three decades of trekking in Nepal, Tibet and Bhutan by Emmy Award-winning Maui filmmaker Tom Vendetti, will have its world premiere screening Saturday, Nov. 5, in Castle Theater at the Maui Arts & Cultural Center. Featuring appearances by the Dalai Lama, Kris Kristofferson and others, the film chronicles Vendetti’s adventures and discoveries, happening onto a series of almost magic coincidences along the path. Co-produced by Vendetti’s longtime collaborator, Maui’s Robert C. Stone, the film’s script was written by Rick Chatenever. Renowned musicians Paul Horn and Christopher Hedge provide the music and best-selling author Ann Morifee shares the narration with Stone. The premiere will also include “In Love with the Mystery,” a live journey in words and music by Mortifee and Horn, who happen to be husband and wife. Tickets for the 7 p.m. presentation are $25 plus applicable fees, available at the MACC box office, 242-7469, www.mauiarts.org.
