Denis Henry Hennelly has directed three feature films – Rock The Bells (Warner Home Video), Bold Native, and Goodbye World (Samuel Goldwyn Films).
The critically acclaimed documentary Rock The Bells premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival and earned comparisons to Gimme Shelter and Woodstock. Premiere called it “outright exhilarating,” and The Village Voice hailed it as “a nerve-racking knockout of a film.”
Bold Native, the first fiction film about the Animal Liberation Front, was self-distributed through dozens of sold-out event screenings and via digital platforms. Hip Hop mogul Russell Simmons, who hosted the NYC premiere, called it “Creative, fun, and impassioned… I was blown away.”
Goodbye World (starring Adrian Grenier, Gaby Hoffmann, Ben McKenzie, Kid Cudi, Kerry Bishé, Caroline Dhavernas, and Mark Webber) tells the story of a group of estranged friends reuniting as civilization collapses and received praise for its character development and unique story. Screen International said Goodbye World “wears its heart on its sleeve, is engagingly performed, beautifully shot and always absorbing.” Twitchfilm called it “one of the most entertaining indies of the year” and Film Pulse called it “the most charming catastrophe film in theaters right now.”
