LoadedToday’s spotlight indie movie, Ekaj, is a little different than a lot of the movies we spotlight. Director Cati Gonzalez crafted the LGBTQ drama Ekaj by casting non-actors in all of the roles. She did this to make this particular story more authentic and “as real-to-life as possible.” It helps the movie feel different and unique.

Official Description: Ekaj is a film packed with real life drama and a real sense of humor. The film capture’s a naive teen’s runaway journey to one of the most difficult city’s to survive in, New York City.

The movie stars Jake Mestre, Badd Idea, Scooter LaForge, and the movie’s director, Cati Gonzalez. You can watch Ekaj for free on Tubi TV. The LGBTQ crime drama is also free for Amazon Prime members on Prime Video.

This is a very hard time across the globe, but I’m thankful for movies and having access to so many movies online. You can find big, small, Hollywood, Indie, art, shorts, etc., all for free to watch. We should all be staying at home to help take pressure off the heroes in our medical community, so what better time to watch a ton of movies.

We had the pleasure of talking with director Duke Addleman on about his documentary Breathe Breana, a movie that tells the story of a champion surfer who suffers from a life-threatening disease.

Breathe Breana

Who? 
Breana Schroeder is the main force behind this movie. Her mother Caryn and her surfing partner Bobby Friedman appear as themselves. I do my Hitchcock with Breana at the camera after one of the interview segments. Indie Rights picked us up and has us on Apple TV, Amazon, YouTube, Google Play, and Tubi TV.

Breathe Breana

What?
The story is about Breana, her struggle with the life threatening disease cystic fibrosis, and her relentless effort to become a surfing champion.

Breathe Breana

Where?
We filmed in Maui, San Onofre, Malibu, Oahu, Hermosa Beach, and Palos Verdes/San Pedro.

Breathe Breana

When?
This was a two-year shoot, taking place between April of 2016 and November of 2018. I edited the film in the winter of 2018/19, and began showing it in 2019. Indie Rights released us in June of 2019.

Breathe Breana

Why?
I made this film because Breana Schroeder is a marvel… because Breana is an inspiring, soul-enriching human being. I felt compelled to tell her story, and I believe I did it well. In fact, I dare you to watch it without welling up!
