After skimming money from the mob, a beautiful, well-trained fighter, Natasha, finds herself on the run with a kind, naïve accountant Jimmy, whose life is about to get more thrilling than he could ever imagine.

Jimmy (Matthew Lawrence) recently loses his brother and promises to scatter his ashes in the ocean. His plans, however, are derailed when a normal convenience store pit-stop becomes a mob attack on cashier Natasha (Danielle C. Ryan). As Jimmy tries to flee, he discovers Natasha hiding in the back seat, and learns that she isn't some random cashier, but a woman on the run from the mob with a split personality: Nat and Tasha. After some convincing, Nat and Tasha tag along with Jimmy on a road trip across the country, hoping to escape on a boat to Hawaii. But when the son of the crime boss, Ellis (Kevin Joy), joins forces with right-hand mobster Ask (Dawn Olivieri), an explosive and violent cross-country chase pursues.

THE QUEST Nepal - Poster

Gravitas Ventures  an Anthem Sports & Entertainment company, has acquired North American rights to Filmmaker, Adventurer & Host Alex Harz’s award-winning  and fascinating personal journey through the captivating & inviting culture of Nepal, including his harrowing climb of Mt. Everest in THE QUEST: Nepal”.   Gravitas Ventures will release THE QUEST: Nepal”  across all TVOD/Digital platforms throughout North America – beginning on May 24th, 2022, perfectly timed to International Everest Day.

Alex Approaching the South Summit of Everest

THE QUEST: Nepal” is like combining Werner Herzog with Anthony Bourdain and a bit of Bear Grylls  on an extraordinary Quest to deeper understand and climb the most iconic mountain in the world, Everest, while unveiling the fascinating culture, history and nature of Nepal. 

International Everest Day is May 29th, commemorating the first time Everest was successfully summited on May 29th, 1953 by Sir Edmund Hillary of New Zealand and Sherpa Tenzing Norgay of Nepal, which we reference in “THE QUEST: Nepal,” since Tashi  and Harz were all alone like Hillary Norgay were back in 1953, and because of the weird striking physical similarities between Hillary  and Harz and Norgay and Tashi.  Somehow it was just meant to be, and the film offers audiences a unique flashback to that historic moment in time.

THE QUEST: Nepal” is like combining Werner Herzog with Anthony Bourdain and a bit of Bear Grylls  on an extraordinary Quest to deeper understand and climb the most iconic mountain in the world, Everest, while unveiling the fascinating culture, history and nature of Nepal. Become enthralled by one of the most surreal cities on earth, Kathmandu, before embarking on an expedition up the sacred valley of the indigenous Sherpa people during a spectacular 9-day trek to Mt. Everest Base Camp situated at a staggering height of 17,500 feet / 5334 meters above sea level.  Feel what life is like to climb and survive for 43 more grueling days at 17,500 feet and above as we continue our epic Quest upward to try to reach the daunting 29,032 foot / 8849  meter summit of planet earth.  From experiencing Mt. Everest like never before to witnessing remarkable rarely seen stories from one of the most unique countries in the world, “THE QUEST: Nepal” is truly a one-of-a-kind cinematic journey like no other, and one which embodies the incredible human spirit of adventure that lives inside us all.

The fear is inescapable and the suspense nonstop in this gripping horror-thriller about six strangers who suddenly awaken in a remote, endless cornfield. Stripped of their possessions, they are left with only six items: a gun with a single bullet, matches, a lantern, a knife, a compass, and a flask of water. As mysterious sirens blare in the distance and traps appear at every turn, the group realizes it’s been plunged into a cat-and-mouse game with an unseen evil, and survival depends upon solving a diabolical — and deadly — puzzle.

REMEMBER ME explores Mahalia’s unbreakable relationship with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. (Columbus Short) and her integral role in the Civil rights movement. REMEMBER ME brings Mahalia’s fight for freedom into the spotlight while highlighting Mahalia’s own personal search for love.

REMEMBER ME was directed by Denise Dowe and written by Ericka  Nicole Malone. The film’s cast includes Ledisi, Columbus Short, Janet Hubert, Vanessa A. Williams, Wendy Raquel Robinson, Keith David, Corbin Bleu,  Keith Robinson.

Caged Birds

Caged Birds (PAFF 2021)
Narrative/US/87min/2021
Director: Fredrick Leach

Jordan Lucas is an affluent, Black high school senior counting down the days until college. He’s constantly bullied and lacks the confidence to stand up for himself. When his prideful cousin, EJ, is humiliated by a white bully, Blake, he recruits Jordan and Kevonte, a bussed-in student from the other side of the tracks, to play a robbery prank on Blake. When the prank goes bad, the three boys struggle to avoid being caught. In the process, they are each forced to confront the personal demons that come with being Black in the suburbs. Best First Feature Director-Narrative, PAFF 2021
