Stem Cell Documentary by Brian Mehling, M.D.‘s company Industrial Motion Pictures screening at Sundance Film Festival.

From-StemCells-PostCardThe documentary “Stem Cells: The Next Frontier” is set to be screened on Tuesday, January 24, 2017 at 7pm at the Sunrise Lodge in Park City, Utah.
Stem cell research is the next frontier in medicine, but many have only the narrowest understanding of what it is, what it can do, and why it isn’t explored to its full potential in the United States.
The creators of the 20 minute short movie joined forces with Blue Horizon International, BHI Therapeutic Sciences and Blue Horizon Charitable Foundation teams, to explore what exactly stem cells are, as well as their potential to reshape the medical world. The executive Producer of the documentary is Brian Mehling, M.D., founder of IMP. The production team was led by Ralph Moffetone and John-David Grayson and the supervisor of the project is Melody London.
Dr. Mehling will be available onsite to share insights on the current and upcoming breakthroughs in regard to cellular and regenerative medicine and stem cell research as it relates to the technology revolution. “The ‘miracle drug’ we are all searching for may not be a drug at all. It may be our own cells. Stem cells have the potential to treat better than any pill or drug, because it directly gives the body exactly what is missing – healthy cells,” said Dr. Mehling. “Regenerative medicine is not the future, it is the present.”

Blue Horizon Charitable Foundation raises awareness about HIV-infected children during Cannes Film Festival

Diplomatic Council awards prize to Robert Corna, director of “A Smile for Bow “ documentary film about HIV-infected orphan girl, produced by Industrial Motion Pictures, Brian Mehling, M.D. and Eddie Amarante

Blue Horizon Charitable Foundation & Diplomatic Council event in Cannes
NEW YORK – June 1, 2015 — The international Film Festival in Cannes is one of the most renowned and prestigious film festivals in the world. Launched in 1946, the Cannes Festival is now held each year in May at the Code d’Azur.

During this year’s 68th International Film Festival in Cannes, the Diplomatic Council (DC) and Blue Horizon Charitable Foundation (BHCF) organized an exclusive event at the Villa Horizon Bleu.

It is the Diplomatic Council’s view that cinematic art plays an important role in promoting international understanding. Movies can make a contribution because they introduce different cultures and show different ways of thinking and acting thus broadening people’s horizons.

Actor Lambert Wilson, host of this year’s award ceremony, said: “The world is written in an incomprehensible language, but cinema helps us translate it universally. Without the guiding light, everyone would be stuck in the dark of the night.“

Dr. Brian Mehling’s film production company, Industrial Motion Pictures (IMP), showed Robert Corna’s latest movie, A Smile For Bow, on Tuesday, May 19th at Palais D at Palais des Festivals et des Congrès.

The sequel to Tiny Tears, entitled A Smile for Bow, is the continuing story of Bow, a little girl from Thailand, who was abandoned at birth.

DC awards “Golden Dove of Peace” in Cannes

US producer and director Robert Corna is the first winner of the new film prize “La Colombe d’or de la Paix” that the Diplomatic Council Global Media Forum has awarded for the first time this year. The award ceremony took place at the prestigious Villa Horizon Bleu during the film festival in Cannes. “We have deliberately chosen the “world of glamour” and by awarding this film prize directed attention to a documentary which was made in a totally different “world of poverty and tears”, says DC Secretary General Hang Nguyen.

Robert Corna received this sought-after award for his documentary on “A Smile for Bow” which tells the story of the orphan girl Bow who grew up without parents in an orphanage in Thailand. A Smile for Bow is the sequel to a production about HIV-infected children and young people in Asia, Africa and America. The first part “Tiny Tears” was crucial for Bow’s fate: not only is Bow infected with HIV but she also was not able to smile because foetal alcoholism has severely deformed her face since her birth. Through this film, a group of doctors became aware of Bow’s fate and offered 2 free surgeries so that finally, at the age of 16, Bow is able to smile for the first time in her life. The Diplomatic Council welcomes 16-year old Bow as its DC Fellow and is happy to help her, giving her many more reasons to smile in her life.

The film prize “La Colombe d’or de la Paix” is part of the DC Initiative Helping Hands, an initiative established with the objective to draw worldwide attention to particularly vulnerable people and to encourage aid organisations and donators to join the DC Initiative Helping Hands. The Initiative’s aim is to give helping hands to those ones who are in dire need of help and protection.

This award ceremony was also the Diplomatic Council’s launch event at the Cote d’Azur and the opening of the DC Mission in Cannes.
