Free Trip To Egypt – Trailer

April 15th, 2019

Here is the trailer from the upcoming film Free Trip To Egypt. The film is directed by Tarek Mounib.

Seeking to build a bridge of mutual understanding and friendship, a Canadian-Egyptian entrepreneur of Muslim faith decides to reach out to the very people who fear him. Traveling across the U.S. to find Americans concerned about an Islamic threat, Tarek Mounib makes them an intriguing offer … a Free Trip to Egypt. With initial reactions ranging from suspicion to hostility, Mounib –accompanied by YouTube celebrity and racial activist Adam Saleh, a Muslim born in New York City to Yemeni parents –embarks on a mission, traveling from a small town in the heart of Georgia to a Trump Rally in Kentucky, Union Square in NYC … and a variety of locales in between. Eventually, they cobble together a diverse group of people, including a school teacher, police officer, Marine Corps veteran, single mom, preacher and beauty pageant queen.

All have preconceptions and misgivings but are open and courageous enough to embark on the adventure of a lifetime, arriving in Cairo, Egypt, in July 2017. The Americans spend 10 days paired with locals just as diverse as them … and possibly with just as many misconceptions. What happens when a retired teacher and her husband are united with a young Egyptian revolutionary? Or when a Christian missionary and a born-again, former Miss Kentucky are housed with an orthodox Muslim family where the mother wears a burqa? Or when a police officer faces off with a radical, left-leaning journalist?

The answers are provocative, surprising, funny, magical, emotional, revealing, enlightening and ultimately life-changing —in other words, all things human —in this profoundly original and inspirational feature-length documentary. When people look beyond their ethnicity, political affiliations, religious beliefs, economic status and connect at a human level, it’s a transformative and universal message for everyone to come together and join the global#PledgeToListeninitiative, a social media revolution of acceptance.

Satan and Adam Release PosterA celebration of the transformative power of music, and the bonds that develop when artists collaborate and worlds collide, the film follows Satan & Adam, a blues duo and a fixture on Harlem’s sidewalks in the late 1980s and early 1990s.

When a white Jewish Ivy league scholar and musician named Adam Gussow asked if he could join him one day, both their lives took a powerful turn. Adam put aside the ivory tower life to play in the streets, and Sterling’s embrace of his younger apprentice forged a sound that thrust him back in the spotlight. But life on the road took its toll on the duo, and suddenly Sterling vanished without a trace. The separation would test both men’s courage, and their journey to find each other again a tale of tragedy, survival and miraculous rebirth..

  WILD NIGHTS WITH EMILY

WILD NIGHTS WITH EMILY Release PosterIn the mid-19th century, Emily Dickinson is writing prolifically, baking gingerbread, and enjoying a passionate, lifelong romantic relationship with her friend and sister-in-law Susan…yes this is the iconic American poet, popularly thought to have been a joyless recluse. Beloved comic Molly Shannon leads in this humorous yet bold reappraisal of Dickinson, informed by her private letters. While seeking publication of some of the 1,775 poems written during her lifetime, Emily (Shannon) finds herself facing a troupe of literary gatekeepers too confused by her genius to take her work seriously. Instead her work attracts the attention of an ambitious woman editor, who also sees Emily as a convenient cover for her own role in buttoned-up Amherst’s most bizarre love triangle.Meticulously researched with the support of the Guggenheim foundation, this dramatic comedy generously intertwines Dickinson’ actual letters and poems into the texture of the film, used with permission from Harvard University Press. A timely critique of how women’s history is rewritten, WILD NIGHTS WITH EMILY remains vibrant, irreverent and tender–a perhaps closer depiction of Emily Dickinson’s real life than anything seen before.

SOCCER ICON HOPE SOLO’S LIFE STORY TO BE DEVELOPED INTO FEATURE FILM BY ARGENT PICTURES

April 10th, 2019

It was revealed today that the life story of American soccer star and equality activist Hope Solo will be told through a film produced by Argent Pictures, the film production and financing outfit run by Jill Ahrens, Ryan Ahrens and Ben Renzo.

Argent has optioned the life story rights of the two-time Olympic gold medalist and World Cup Champion Hope Solo and has tapped Christine Crokos (PIMP) to write and direct the feature film.

Jill Ahrens, Ryan Ahrens and Ben Renzo will produce the film. Executive Producers are Argent partners Drew Brees, Tony Parker, Michael Finley, and Derrick Brooks.

Hope Solo’s story showcases the inspiring rise of a true American all-star athlete who started in humble beginnings and became a two-time Olympic gold medalist, a World Cup champion and is regarded as one of the top female soccer goalkeepers in the world.

From the beginning, Hope was a true competitor leading her high school team to win multiple titles and a state championship and then becoming the best women’s goalkeeper in Pac-10 history for the University of Washington. After graduating she continued to play professionally as a goalkeeper in the U.S. and European leagues and for the U.S. at the World Cup in 2007, 2011, and 2015 and Olympics in 2008, 2012 and 2016. Although the U.S. lost in the quarterfinals of the 2007 and the finals of the 2011 World Cup she helped the US team rebound from both losses and win gold medals at the 2008 and 2012 Summer Olympics, and in 2015 she helped the U.S. team finally win a Women’s World Cup Championship.

As a vocal advocate for equal pay and women’s rights in soccer, she shouldered the brunt of pushback while playing professionally. It is Solo’s mission now to fight for women’s rights and general equality.

Producer Ben Renzo said, “We are very excited to be working to bring Hope’s life story to the big screen with Christine at the helm. Hope is an amazing athlete, with an intense competitive spirit who has achieved some of the highest accomplishments in women’s soccer as a professional goalkeeper. Her journey to becoming an elite athlete and one of the best soccer players at her position is incredibly motivating, and that’s what makes this story special to us. We want to make movies that entertain and inspire – and Hope’s story encompasses those themes.”

“Hope Solo is a force of nature who broke down walls in women’s sports, both as a player and as a humanitarian,” said writer /director Christine Crokos. “Her story is one of pure trailblazing and fierce athleticism – one that many generations to come will honor and look up to.”

Lisa Nitti negotiated the deal on behalf of Argent Pictures. Negotiations on behalf of Hope Solo were handled by Rich Nichols. The deal was set up by manager Tiffany Shine.

Christine Crokos is represented by Verve, Gail Levin and Frankfurt Kurnit Klein & Selz PC.
