Filmmaker and poet Ari Gold has won dozens of prizes for his films, including the Student Oscar, best film at SXSW, and many more. His award-winning drama “The Song of Sway Lake,” with Rory Culkin and Robert Sheehan, played 52 international film festivals. The air-drum cult comedy “Adventures of Power” (“One of the funniest films in recent years” – NY Magazine), is currently being re-released. His short “Helicopter”, about his mother’s death in a helicopter crash that killed rock music promoter Bill Graham, is being expanded into a feature film, and is excerpted in Alejandro Jodorowsky’s “Psychomagic.”
Ari’s most unusual awards include High Times Magazine’s “Stoner of the Year,” and the Guinness World Record for commanding the largest air-drum ensemble on earth. His next project is a game-changing action-adventure film about ecology, war, and the liberation of the human spirit.
