A film by Doug Gritzmacher & Michael Dechant Jr.

Special Features • 5.1 Audio Option • Deleted Scenes including: Active duty 101st Airborne troops attending D-Day meet legendary WW2 veteran, Jake McNiece (From the "Filthy Thirteen" 101st Airborne unit that fought during D-Day and whose stories inspired the movie The Dirty Dozen); D-Day parade; Officers party; Extra battle footage • Promo for Oklahoma D-Day Adventure Park

Soldiers of Paint follows a dramatic battle involving 5,000 people who re-stage the Invasion of Normandy, or D-Day, in Oklahoma. Instead of bullets they use paint and it's any man's game, which means the Germans could win! And these guys are serious. They spend all year preparing their battle strategies (including finding ways to spy on each other) and on game day they come ready to fight with full-size tanks, airplanes, and bazookas.

The battle takes place each year on a 700-acre piece of land owned by Dewayne Convirs, who takes on this endeavor as a tribute to his grandfather and, ultimately, in support of our veterans. It's a character-driven story with a plenty of action, drama, and humor that is sure to appeal to cineastes, paintball enthusiasts, and military buffs alike.

“One of the best paintball films I've ever seen!” - Paintball X3 Magazine

What is most impressive is how it manages to turn a paintball event into a suspenseful war film. It's an entertaining and intense experience. Since we don’t know how it is going to end, score watching is as exciting as at any sporting event. Overall, Soldiers of Paint was a fun documentary to experience. I didn’t know that D-Day could be respectfully transformed into a paintball event in Oklahoma, but it can.” - Film Threat

A film by Fiona Cunningham-Reid

Many of us share the fantasy of moving to a lovely village in the South of France, to find a vineyard, create wonderful wines, to sell it and share it with all our friends. Carole LeBlanc and Jo Béfort, an engaging lesbian couple, have done just that.

Carole and Jo started their wine adventure six years ago in Collias, France. Their dream was to produce excellent wine. They had no experience, just their passion - and friends. Winemaking is a complex and labor intensive process, and still a very macho affair in France. But as this captivating film reveals, it is possible for two women who are willing to work hard to achieve their dream and live the life they choose - as well as bring an entire village and community into their world.

“I like the spirit and atmosphere of the film. Congratulations!”- Jean-Louis Trintignant, Award-winning Actor from Amour

“This charming film gives a very personal view of growing grapes and making wine. It celebrates the sense of community that they have created around their passion and takes you through the seasons of one year, treading a careful path between explaining all that is involved without overloading with technical detail.”- Julia Harding, Master of Wine at Jancis Robinson
