People’s Television’s Not Going Quietly chronicles the journey of Ady Barkan, doting husband and loving father, who at the age of 32 was diagnosed with ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease). Concerned with rising healthcare costs and the future of his family, Barkan bands with the “Summer of Heroes Tour” (2018) and embarks to Washington, where he leads rallies and directly addresses elected officials in hopes of igniting a greater movement toward national healthcare reform. Not Going Quietly will premiere on June 12 to a sold-out audience at Hudson Yards Public Square and Garden and has been acquired by Greenwich Entertainment for distribution and release in U.S. theaters on August 13.
Maggie Vision Productions’ Ricky Powell: The Individualist chronicles the prominent street photographer Ricky Powell’s ascension to stardom as he captured some of the most sensational events in music, fashion, and art in 1980’s and 1990’s New York City, and features interviews with actress Natasha Lyonne and icons Laurence Fishburne and LL Cool J. The feature documentary also turns the lens to the private life of the man behind the camera, exposing intimate details about his personal experiences and relationships. Ricky Powell premieres on June 14 to a sold-out audience at Waterfront Plaza at Brookfield Place.
Multitude Films LLC’s Pray Away takes on the sensitive subject of the gay conversion therapy movement and the hundreds of thousands of people influenced by its wide-reaching implications, many of whom are LGBTQ+ youth, often ostracized by their families and subjected to questionable psychological treatments intended to reorient same-sex attractions. This gripping feature will screen for a sold-out audience on June 16 at Brooklyn Commons at MetroTech.
Caroline Waterlow’s Radical Love examines the closely-knit and controversial relationship of Michael and Eleanora Kennedy, the husband-and-wife legal duo who represented some of the most polarizing political figures of the 1960’s. The 20-minute short will screen for a sold-out audience at Hudson Yards Public Square and Garden on June 17.
We wish these clients and their projects continued success and hope that you’ll join us!
