Description

SimonSays Entertainment produced the 2010 Sundance sensation "Night Catches Us" (Director: Tanya Hamilton, U.S. Distributor: Magnolia Pictures) starring Anthony Mackie (Hurt Locker), Kerry Washington (Ray) with music by THE ROOTS. We produce compelling and entertaining features exploring the stories, fables and imaginings under represented communities. Our motto: Tell Every Story.

Objective

We are currently seeking funding partners for "Highway to Nowhere" (director Lanre Olabisi - "August the First")  Were Highway to Nowhere to be distilled down to one word, that word would be "identity."  It explores the interweaving stories of three men in search of their identities.  Our main character (a Mexican born, US citizen) unflinchingly searches for his national identity.  Another struggles to find his identity as a man – risking his life and the life of his 10 year old daughter to cross the border and re-unite his family.  The final character longs for acceptance from his father; a man desperately searching for his identity as a son worthy of his father’s love. With it's strong universal themes, Highway to Nowhere is both a highly intense and captivatingly intimate drama accessible to global audiences. It’s a multi character narrative told in both English and Spanish making it especially accessible to English and Spanish speaking audiences.
