Filmmaker Ethan Paisley is Breaking the Mold and Reshaping Hollywood

Photo by @AndresHernandez

Ethan Paisley is a force to be reckoned with. He is a filmmaker driven by social change with over twenty film and TV projects under his belt that are being distributed internationally. Paisley is currently hosting and executive producing a six-part episodic project for DVD Netflix (a Netflix company) titled Set Life and hopes to inspire young artists into their passions with the release of the show. This new endeavor will add “host” to Paisley’s extensive resume of talents, which include writing, directing, producing, and acting. Even though he is busy making headlines with his on-camera work, Paisley is even busier breaking down barriers with his recent film and TV projects. Last year, he was the inaugural recipient of the Best Young Director Award for his film Indelible at the Young Entertainer Awards, an awards show that included nominees Peyton List and Anthony Gonzales. He recently produced two short films now in post-production titled Tell Me When To Forget and Go with the Flow, and will begin shooting his third feature film Turn Out later this year along with a Manhattan-based TV Series titled Screwed.

MOUNTAIN with Willem Dafoe on Blu-ray 9/25

Ravishing and thrilling views from the top of the world fill MOUNTAIN, a stirring visual and musical feast documenting the daring people who ascend and traverse – by whatever means possible – the globe’s highest peaks. Narrated by Willem Dafoe and called “a ravishing feat of vertiginous filmmaking” by The Hollywood Reporter, it arrives on Blu-ray and DVD from Greenwich Entertainment on September 25, 2018.

Only three centuries ago, setting out to climb a mountain would have been considered close to lunacy. Mountains were places of peril, not beauty, an upper world to be shunned, not sought out. Why do mountains now hold us spellbound, drawing us into their dominion, often at the cost of our lives?

From Tibet to Australia, Alaska to Norway, armed with drones, GoPros and helicopters, director Jennifer Peedom (Sherpa) has fashioned an astonishing symphony of mountaineers, ice climbers, free soloists, heliskiers, snowboarders, wingsuiters and parachuting mountain bikers.

Willem Dafoe provides a narration sampled from British mountaineer Robert Macfarlane’s acclaimed memoir Mountains of the Mind, and a classical score from the Australian Chamber Orchestra accompanies this majestic cinematic experience.

MOUNTAIN has received universal praise from critics and audiences alike. Michael Rechtshaffen of the Los Angeles Times called it “a unique portrait of mankind’s enduring fascination with the world’s most formidable summits.” Peter Rainer of The Christian Science Monitor said, “For those of us who would never in our wildest imaginings ride a bike off a sky-high mountain peak and then parachute to earth, I can heartily recommend the documentary, where such feats are standard.” The Wall Street Journal’s Joe Morgenstern said the film “reminds us that mountains restore our wonder; more than ever we need their wildness.” Matthew Roe of Under the Radar called it “a uniquely stunning document, defined by its sublime beauty, cautious reverence, and musical resplendence.”

A popular selection at film festivals worldwide, MOUNTAIN was released by Greenwich Entertainment in top theatrical markets in 2018.

Bonus features on both the Blu-ray and DVD include a look behind the scenes and interviews with director Jennifer Peedom and Robert Macfarlane, author of Mountains of the Mind.
