FilMart: Johnny Depp to Reveal U.S. Photograph…

FilMart: Johnny Depp to Reveal U.S. Photographer’s Japanese Redemption in ‘Minamata’:

The sleepy Japanese town of Minamata was the scene of one of the world’s greatest environmental disasters when it was poisoned by mercury in the 1970s. It was also the setting for a groundbreaking international treaty designed to control use of the deadly metal.

U.K. sales agent HanWay Films will use its platform at FilMart to unveil updates on “Minamata,” its drama-thriller about the celebrated photographer W. Eugene Smith. His images from the toxic town gave the eco-disaster a heartbreaking human dimension, and put reckless big business on front pages around the world.

Johnny Depp stars as Smith, a colorful character who was a celebrated WWII photographer and later became close to jazz great Thelonious Monk. Smith ventured to Minamata near the end of his life, accompanied by his Japanese wife Aileen Mioko Smith.

“At that point, Gene [Smith] was about to give up. He wasn’t sure it was worth it, but when he got to Minamata, not only did he find a story to tell, he was able to help. It was redemptive, a late life reawakening,” said director Andrew Levitas.

“Smith is a unique protagonist. He had a unique way of looking at the world, he was someone who could edit and art direct his own universe, even when walking down the street … he carried everything with him, and while in Minamata embedded himself completely in their world.”

Smith’s exceptional professional abilities, and his chameleon-like personality, may have been what drew Depp to the story. The project was developed by Depp’s Infinitum Nihil company, before selecting artist and filmmaker Levitas (“Lullaby”), to direct.

“We see the world through his lens, but Smith is not the only hero. Minamata is also a tale of people fighting for their rights and for their children,” said Levitas. Depp has a powerful supporting cast that includes leading Japanese actors Hiroyuki Sanada, Tadanobu Asano, Ryo Kase, Jun Kunimura and Bill Nighy.

“Because of his health, Gene knew it would be his last project. But it was my first,” Aileen Smith told Variety. They had been together only four months as a couple before traveling to Minamata. Smith’s pictures were initially published as a photo essay by Life magazine, and three years later as the book “Minamata,” from which David K. Kessler (“A Hard Day’s Day”) adapted the screenplay, was published.

“The hidden story is that Gene was a wonderful teacher. Everyone around him blossomed. I’d already seen that in New York. [In Japan] he showed incredible passion, integrity and commitment to photography and journalism,” Aileen Smith said.

She said that over the past two decades she has fielded multiple offers to adapt the book, but she said the issue of industrial mercury poisoning was given new visibility by the previous U.S. administration, as then-U.S. President Barack Obama was said to have been moved by one of Smith’s photos from Minamata that he saw while a child.

The film is currently shooting in Belgrade, before relocating to Japan. Delivery is expected in 2020. “This uplifting, emotional story will be a definitive illustration of triumph over adversity,” said Janina Vilsmaier, sales manager at Hanway. “We are excited to be able to share some exclusive updates with distributors we are meeting at FilMart in Hong Kong.”

Depp produces along with Infinitum Nihil’s Sam Sarkar, Levitas under his Metalwork Pictures banner and Gabrielle Tana (“Philomena”). Jason Forman, Stephen Deuters, Peter Watson, Phil Hunt, Compton Ross, Gabrielle Stewart, Stephen Spence, Peter Touche, Norman Merry and Peter Hampden will executive produce. Heads of department include celebrated cinematographer Benoit Delhomme (“The Theory of Everything,”), production designer Tom Foden (“Mirror Mirror”) and line and executive producer Kevan Van Thompson (“Jojo Rabbit”).

again, the twitter version 

Amber Heard cut off a piece of Johnny Depp’s f…

first what they both said about it:

  • What she said in 2016:

Well i wish i could give you a screencap of the explanation in a court doc, but the only thing there is a story in(leaked/sold to?) tmz. here it goes:

Johnny Depp accidentally cut off his fingertip in a fit of rage … then dipped the stump in dark blue paint and wrote on the wall in paint and blood the name “Billy Bob” – the actor with whom Johnny accused Amber Heard of cheating – this according to Amber and her people.

TMZ has obtained this gruesome photo of Johnny’s butchered finger – WARNING … EXTREMELY DIFFICULT TO LOOK AT. It’s an exhibit in her domestic violence case against Johnny.

We’re told the incident went down in March of last year, just a month after Amber and Johnny married. They were in a villa in Australia when a fierce argument erupted.  

According to Amber’s version of events Johnny, who was drunk and high on ecstasy, smashed several bottles and windows and also slammed a plastic phone against the wall unit. She claims a piece of one of the items cut off a portion of the middle finger on his right hand.

Amber’s version goes on … she’s a painter and had dark blue paint in the room. She claims Johnny dipped what remained of his forefinger in the paint and then used the gnarly digit to write various words on a mirror, including “Billy Bob” and “Easy Amber.”

Amber had done a movie with Billy Bob Thornton and she claims Johnny accused the 2 of sleeping together – something she strongly denied, adding he accused her of infidelity with other men as well.

Amber’s people say Johnny didn’t get medical help for nearly 24 hours, so doctors could not reattach the fingertip … they used a flap from his hand to sew on a new tip.

the two photos in the article are:


there are mentions of pics on her evidence list:


interesting how there is no date (meaning no metadata)
full list here

this story appeared on tmz august 15, the case was dropped with prejudice on august 16:

  • His side version of the events, in 2018

Out of the court docs from the case he filed against amber for defamation, we learn:


full docs here and here

as you can see, explanation in court doc and not story in the press. for those who think his lawyer’s word isn’t proof. a lawyer can not legally in official court documents make a false claim. It would be thrown out by a judge!

Now what does all this mean?

Firstly i’ll let the fact that he made the claims in court docs and she, or the “sources” made the claims to a gossip site a day before the case got dropped with prejudice speak for itself

secondly, she claims he dipped his finger (on open wound) in paint, writing something on a mirror. if you dip an open wound into something toxic and chemical like paint you will be in big trouble! You will most likely loose that finger and she claim he didn’t get medical attention till one day later meaning all that poison got into his bloodstream, and he survived? Notice also how there is no paint in the wound on the photo. But the dirt on his hands from the captain jack make up is still there. meaning it wasn’t cleaned yet


furthermore: the handwriting. there is no blood on the mirror even tho she claims he made it with an open wound

here’s an example of johnny’s handwriting:


now examples of her handwriting:


so if we compare that:


also these are some pics from Johnny’s bathrooms in the condos were he lived with her in la


notice how the wall (white with a grey nerve) are exactly the same as in the photo with the painted mirror) (the molding look lighter because of the lamp) 


and his former sister in law (from his first wife) posted this in 2016:


So: There is no mention of the mirror in Johnny’s story because that never happened. She did that. He couldn’t defend himself back in 2016 because the case got dropped. She hurt his finger and, just like everything else she did to him, made it seem like it was his fault. Typical abusive behavior. #WeAreWithYouJohnnyDepp


“why did Johnny Depp wait 3 years to sue Amber heard?”
because he can only proof defamation if he actually has damage, like losing potc 

“why did he pay her a settlement than?’ he didn’t the money was for the divorce, not the dv case 

"why did he signed that joints statement” he didn’t sign anything, it’s a joint statement for the press, not a contract. the statement doesn’t prove anything, i vague af

 He never admitted, never payed, if he had he wouldn’t be able to sue her now
