LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, June 7, 2022 / — Neo-Gothic psychological thriller Screwdriver by director Cairo Smith will have its world premiere as part of the closing night festivities of Dances With Films. The feature film debut of the award-winning director and screenwriter Smith, the film stars AnnaClare Hicks, Charlie Farrell, Millie Sanders and Matt Munroe. Described as an eerie slow-burn in the vein of Queen of Earth, Dogtooth, and Rosemary’s Baby, Screwdriver will premiere at 6:30 pm on Sunday, June 19th at TCL Chinese 6 Theatres in Hollywood. In attendance will be director/writer Cairo Smith, cast members AnnaClare Hicks, Charlie Farrell, Millie Sanders and Matt Munroe, and producers Rand Vossler, Michelle Shundo and Christopher Corey Smith

Tickets available online at:

Screwdriver is the story of thirty-three-year-old Emily (Hicks), who, blindsided by divorce, leaves her adopted Nebraska behind, returning to California with nothing but a suitcase in hand. She seeks refuge in the home of an old high school friend (Farrell) and his pharmacologist wife (Sanders). The childless couple welcomes Emily into their lives, but their hospitality soon gives way to a surreal plot of control and manipulation. As days bleed together, Emily falls into a delirious tailspin as she grapples with her faith, her sanity, and the intentions of her generous hosts.

Official Trailer:

“Screwdriver is a film about power and systems of control. It’s a meditation on trust, abuse of trust, and those who enable abusers. Expanding on themes from my previous work on the stage, the film examines the nature of control and comfort in an environment where walls are everywhere and support systems are slipping away. It’s a parable, a thriller, a comedy, and a reflection on the ways we build our lives in a world growing ever more fraught,” says Cairo Smith.

The film is produced by Rand Vossler and Christopher Corey Smith of No Sudden Movies, LLC, Michelle Shundo, and Askari Productions. Cairo Smith co-wrote the screenplay with Mia Vicino.

About Cairo Smith – Cairo Smith is a writer/producer/director from Los Angeles, California. Before the age of eighteen his works of short-fiction had already been published in the magazines Omni, Vice, Horizons, and Motherboard. While in high school, he wrote and directed the short comedy Undead Language, which took first place at the newly-formed Peninsula Film Festival in Southern California.

While at college, he was the editor and contributing writer for the Lane Community College newspaper, The Torch. In his spare time, he produced/wrote/directed award-winning content for the University of Oregon’s television channel, “Duck TV.” After the nearby Umpqua college shooting, he became a member of his college senate, and enthusiastically lobbied student issues, speaking at sessions of the Oregon State Assembly and in front of Governor Kate Brown. He is a produced playwright, and member of the Dramatists Guild of America. His first play, Nikeans, – about an on-campus active shooter – won the Kennedy Center College Theater award.

As a filmmaker, Smith’s ambitious short film, Planet California, premiered to a sold-out audience at the Anti-hero Genre Festival in Los Angeles, and went on to screen in competition at many other festivals worldwide. His docu-drama, The Peninsula, recouped its entire budget in distributor contracts during pre-production, and went on to screen at multiple festivals.

As a screenwriter, his first feature script, The Heart of Katava, won first place at the 2021 Fresh Voices action/adventure competition and his second screenplay, Lord of Space, is currently in development at Starburns Industries.

A product of layered ancestry and turbulent times, Smith is a passionate and dedicated filmmaker, who lets his varied background guide the unique perspectives in his work, drawing out the humanity in everything he touches from speculative fiction to intimate chamber dramas.

Discovery Senior Living’s FlexChoiceSM Program Wins 2022 Argentum Best of the Best Award

The innovative pricing model allows resident seniors to select from a flexible menu of à la carte dining and lifestyle experiences each month, only paying for the options and services they choose to utilize.

BONITA SPRINGS, Fla. – August 16, 2022 – (

Discovery Senior Living (“Discovery”) has received a 2022 Argentum Best of the Best Award for its FlexChoiceSM program, the company announced. Held annually by seniors housing industry association Argentum, the Best of the Best Awards recognize innovative new programs and services that are working to improve the future of senior living. 

Discovery’s FlexChoiceSM program debuted in October 2021 and was launched at select communities. The program’s provisions enable resident seniors to eliminate “bundled” or pre-packaged meal and service plans, instead choosing from dozens of available dining and lifestyle service options and paying only for those they opt to enjoy each month. 

Lifestyle customization programs like FlexChoiceSM are a focal point of Discovery’s resident-focused operating model—called Experiential LivingSM—which aims to empower more customized lifestyle experiences that will better satisfy the next generation of active seniors. 

Lifestyle personalization is the foundation upon which the future of our industry is now being built,” said Gottfried Ernst, Vice President of Operations for Discovery Senior Living. “But beyond just optimizing the resident experience, FlexChoiceSM and the latest technologies can help reveal resident preference and usage patterns, promote more operational efficiency, refine purchasing and reduce the number of wasted goods and services. That makes this a true, two-way innovation with the power to change senior living for the better.”  

James Balda, Argentum President and Chief Executive Officer said, “Congratulations to our 2022 Best of the Best Award Winners. Argentum members work daily to provide the level-best care and services for residents and these six communities are doing that and more with these ground-breaking new ideas on taking their caregiving efforts to the next level.” 

FlexChoiceSM is currently being rolled out at additional Discovery communities throughout 2022. Discovery Senior Living currently owns and operates a portfolio of 111 communities in 19 states.
