Actress Raven Dauda, Talking Wine With The Stars, TIFF, The Wine Ladies TV

Positive energy radiated the room as the stunning award winning actress entered the set. 

This multi-talented, artistic lady is a talented stage actress having won the prestigious Dora Mayer Moore award ( 2009). Her portrayal in Miss Julie: Freedom summer (Outstanding Performance by a Female in a Featured Role in a Play or Musical ) was the award winning role.

In 2009 Raven starred in “Intimate Apparel” a love story set in New York in 1905, amid the ragtime. Last year she played the lead role of Esther, an ambitious and independent African-American woman. Esther has aspirations in conflict with turn of the century society. A gifted seamstress who has gained financial independence by sewing elegant undergarments for socialites and prostitutes.  She dreams of opening her own boutique. When George, a charming Caribbean islander employed in the construction of the Panama Canal, writes to her, a romance begins that promises to help her realize her dreams.

Raven Dauda’s superb performance is quite simply the highlight of the evening…wonderfully nuanced…she breathes life into the awkward, slightly prim and dowdy 35-year old woman rushing toward love.”
– The Toronto Star

The hit play “Intimate Apparel” is returning back to the Canadian Stage Company for a return performance in 2010.

Quite the fashionista Raven has also started her company Designs by Raven or DbR a line of striking and original jewelry designs. The “A” list stars have already taken notice and have been snapping up her designs.

Kalman Szegvary’s Cannibal Rollerbabes immortalized by Howard Stern directs new horror film Abatto

Kalman Szegvary’s Cannibal Rollerbabes immortalized by Howard Stern directs new horror film Abattoir

Director Kalman Szegvary, Talking Wine With The Stars, TIFF, The Wine Ladies TV

Director Kalman Szegvary, Talking Wine With The Stars, TIFF, The Wine Ladies TV

Kalman began shooting short stories with his sisters and little brother when he was eleven years old at which point he began to edit and cut the stories together. He began his professional career as an assistant director at Mafilm Studios in Budapest, Hungary, where he was working on a West-German Television Series. Upon his return he produced and/or directed a few television commercials and production managed several music videos including, “Sooner or Later”, a music video for ‘The Spoons’, for Anthem Records.

Kalman felt the strong desire to create his first feature, so with very limited funds he produced and directed “Cannibal Rollerbabes”. Once completion of the edit distributors claimed that it do not contain enough nudity and so he found it tough to get the distribution contract. The film has since become a hit in cult film circles, as shock jock Howard Stern discussed it one morning on air and then had the star Lisa Heughan, on his TV show.

Kalman’s lastest film is a low-budget horror, “Abattoir” written by American James McClung.

A throwback horror movie shot on gritty 16mm film in an age where digital glossiness dominates the genre film industry, Abattoir combines the raw brutality of cult exploitation films from the seventies and eighties (such as The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, The Last House on the Left, and The Evil Dead) with a healthy dose of borderline self deprecating, tongue and cheek humor and a sharp sense of irony targeted directly at the very films that inspired it. With enough carnage and cruelty to match the utter ruthlessness of its notorious predecessors and enough winks in the audience’s direction to ensure that its gleeful blood play is not meant to be taken as anything other than a fun ride, the film is sure to excite the taste buds of any movie fan with a soft spot for cult films, retro cinema, and, of course, the “red stuff.”

Abattoir is currently in post production and in negotiations with a distributor.
