SINS OF COMMISSION withdraws from West Hollywood International Film Festival

Friday, July 10th, 2009

SINS OF COMMISSION, the first documentary film to penetrate the veil of secrecy surrounding the California Coastal Commission, withdrew from the West Hollywood International Film Festival late this afternoon.

“Irreconcilable differences prevent us from participating”, said Richard Oshen, writer, director, and producer of the debut film from Pacific Coast Highway Productions, Inc.

I am deeply saddened the people of California must wait longer to see SINS OF COMMISSION. I am 100% committed to bringing the film out, and I hope I can do that very soon. Each day we are delayed people and environment suffer in California.

Richard Oshen, SINS OF COMMISSION, writer, director, producer

“I wish everyone associated with WHIFF 2009 the best of luck”.

Sins Of Commission in West Hollywood International Film Festival

It’s official, SINS is in.

I would like to publicly say thank you to Martin Deluca the Director / Producer of the West Hollywood International Film Festival for having the courage to screen controversial films from around the world like ours.

Embrace the controversy! Revel in the process of Free Speech. This is Democracy! Use it or loose it as the saying goes.

Whether you agree with SINS OF COMMISSION or not is irrelevant to me as a filmmaker.

What is relevant to me, as a filmmaker, is that Americans are not stopped from being able to choose what to read, or watch.

KNBC reporter Cary Berglund asked the California Coastal Commission’s lawyer [Christina Bull Arndt] in the Attorney General’s Office, (because that’s who defends the Triple C -to the tune of $2 Billion a year…is that right?) why they want a copy of the film.

The assistant A.G said that it is “discovery”, and that the commission is casting a “wide net for information.”

I know how tough things are in California financially right now so rather than burden the state with more costs, I’d like to offer to buy a ticket for Attorney General Edmund Brown Jr. Unfortunately, sir, you would have to provide your own transportation.  I know, with the recent gas tax hike it is kind of expensive but it maybe more cost effective in the long run.. Can you cover your own parking?

Governor Schwarzenegger has a place in Malibu, maybe you can crash there and save the people the cost of a hotel. Come to think of it, I’ll spring for two tickets - Arnie can go too…call it a guys night out kind of thing.
