In 2007 I finally got to produce a film I had been working on for ten years.  The film based on a play deals with hope, sexual abuse, and relationships.  

“A love story set against the decaying skyline of downtown Los Angeles between a runaway from a suburban small town and an illegal from Mexico. As the emotional walls between them come down a more horrific picture appears, that of a boy searching for a mother who left him behind and may or may not be alive and that of a girl whose idea of love and violence are inseparable. A Beautiful Life is what these two teenagers want and will fight for with the help of an exotic dancer who dreams of a singing career.”

We didn’t have enough money or enough time but had a committed cast and crew.  There were many difficulties and we were able to overcome each one of them. 

On October 2nd A Beautiful Life, will be released in a number of theatres across the US.  The film features Bai Ling, Jesse Garcia, Dana Delany, Debi Mazar, and Angela Sarafyan. 

Below is the link to an interview I gave today about the making of the film.
