Beyond the Call
Beyond the Call was created by Adrian and Roko Belic, the brothers who developed the Sundance Audience Award winner and Academy Award-nominated Genghis Blues. Together they own and operate Wadi Rum Productions. Accompanying Beyond the Call on the Southern Circuit Tour, Adrian Belic is a member of the Film Arts Foundation and the International Documentary Association. He is a graduate of the University of Southern California and has served as director of an environmental information center in Los Angeles. Born in the U.S. and raised in Chicago, Illinois, he spent many summers during his childhood behind the Iron Curtain in Eastern Europe with his family from Czechoslovakia and Yugoslavia.
Ed Artis, James Laws and Walt Ratterman are three middle-aged men whose idea of adventure is taking desperately needed food and medicine into the worlds most forbidding yet naturally beautiful places, often at the front lines of war.
Following the motto of High Adventure and Service to Humanity, their specialty is going where death from landmines, bullets or bombs is as frequent as death from hunger, disease or the elements, helping out in places that other aid organizations deem too dangerous. One of the most honored documentaries in recent memory, Beyond the Call inspires as it entertains. The film has screened at more than 100 film festivals on five continents and has garnered 35 awards. Premiering at the Tribeca Film Festival, this compelling story has received the Washington DC International Film Festival Audience Award, the Telluride Mountain Film Festival Grand Jury Prize, the Palm Springs International Film Festival Best of Festival award, the Santa Fe Film Festival Grand Jury Prize, and the Taos Film Festival Human Rights Award, among numerous other awards and honors.
