Two Documentaries Join Chattanooga Film Festival Lineup
Two documentaries have been added to the lineup of the Chattanooga Film Festival—12 O’Clock Boys, which tells the story of a notorious urban dirt bike pack in Baltimore (CLICK HERE to watch a trailer), and Teenage (CLICK HERE to watch a trailer), which traces youth culture from the end of the 19th century to the first half of the 20th century.
In 12 O’Clock Boys, directed by Lotfy Nathan, the stunning antics of the young dirt bikers are envisioned through the eyes of young adolescent Pug, a bright kid from the Westside obsessed with the riders and willing to do anything to join their ranks.
Teenage, directed by Matt Wolf, is a living collage of rare archival material, filmed portraits, and diary entries read by Jena Malone (The Hunger Games), Ben Whishaw (Skyfall), and others. It is set to a brilliant, contemporary score by Bradford Cox (Deerhunter / Atlas Sound).
"These two films blew me away,” said CFF director Chris Dortch. “12 O’Clock Boys made my heart pound and made me realize I knew nothing about the Baltimore I thought I learned about while watching The Wire. It feels dangerous and alive. Teenage is sure to please history hounds and cinephiles alike with its amazing assembled look at youth culture.”
The CFF is scheduled April 3-6, 2014. The event will offer four days of independent films at the Carmike Majestic in downtown Chattanooga, five education panels to local and regional filmmakers and social events for filmmakers and fans of cinema.

NEW ORLEANS (AP) -- Before there was a Bobby Flay or Rachael Ray -- there was Paul Prudhomme, who taught the mainstream how to add a kick to their food with Cajun spices made popular in his native Louisiana. Prudhomme has died. A top official of his business ventures says Prudhomme died early yesterday after a brief illness. Prudhomme became prominent in the early 1980s -- and his style of cooking became a sensation at a time when the nation's top restaurants served virtually nothing but European food. Paul Prudhomme was 75.
BILL COSBY - DEPOSITION SET FOR TODAY
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- For the second time in a decade, Bill Cosby will have to answer questions under oath in a sexual assault case. Attorneys for Judy Huth today will take testimony from Cosby about the allegation that he took advantage of her at the Playboy Mansion in the mid-1970s -- when Huth was just a teenager. She went to the police earlier this year with her claims, but authorities determined too much time had passed to file criminal charges. Cosby testified at a deposition in a sexual assault case a decade ago; details were released this summer. Cosby testified that he had extramarital affairs and that he had obtained Quaaludes to give to women he wanted to have sex with.

BILL COSBY - ACCUSERS TO APPEAR ON TV TONIGHT
NEW YORK (AP) -- You've may have heard their stories before -- but not like this. More than two dozen women who say Bill Cosby sexually assaulted them will be on TV tonight -- giving their accounts to NBC News correspondent Kate Snow. But Snow says she anticipates that the biggest thing that will come from the broadcast -- is that women will learn they need to speak openly about sexual assault. NBC says it invited Cosby or one of his reps to be on the show -- but they declined. It's also interesting to note NBC is where Cosby starred in two of his biggest series: "The Cosby Show" and "I Spy." NBC was also about to hire him for a Cosby show reboot -- but the project was scuttled last year as dozens of women came forward with their allegations that the comedian sexually assaulted them.
LONDON (AP) -- Looks like Daniel Craig wants to break his bond with Bond. James Bond. He says he'd rather slit his wrists than do another Bond movie. He speaks out about the role in an interview with Time Out magazine. Asked if he could see himself doing another turn in the spy role, he responds -- quoting here -- "Now? I'd rather break this glass and slash my wrists. ... I'm over it at the moment. We're done. All I want to do is move on." Not quite yet. He's in the upcoming Bond movie "Spectre." And he says if he re-ups for another, it would be "only for the money."
NEW YORK (AP) -- Jennifer Hudson says a simple message to anyone who might want to talk with her about the 2008 murders of her mother, sister and nephew: "don't even bother." She says it's -- quoting here -- "frustrating as hell" to have someone who hasn't experienced what she has to start talking to her about the killings. She made the comments to Glamour magazine. She also says giving birth to her son, David, a year after the tragedy was "the best therapy" for her. She also says it was bittersweet, because she went from being an aunt, having a mom and being a child to not having a mom, becoming a mom and raising her own child.
RANDY QUAID - FREED, BUT ...
MONTREAL (AP) -- Randy Quaid has been ordered released by Canadian immigration officials who'd been holding him. But another release is pending for the American-born actor -- his deportation from Canada. Quaid says he is being deported back to the U.S. -- where he faces an outstanding warrant and pending criminal charges. Quaid went before a Canadian immigration panel yesterday and he was ordered released. He was taken into custody earlier in the week because it was felt he wouldn't comply with an order to leave next week. Quaid is 65. He and his wife fled to Canada five years ago, saying they were the victims of persecution.
NETFLIX RAISING PRICES
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Want Netflix? It's going to cost you more for a streaming addiction. The site is raising its price for new customers in the U.S., Canada and some Latin American countries.
