Cinema Libre Studio is a leader in the production and distribution of award-winning, high concept narratives and social issue nonfiction films. Since 2003, the studio has released over 200 titles and remains at the forefront of the independent film movement, providing the expertise and relationships that filmmakers need to find their global audience across all platforms. Headquartered in Burbank, CA, the team has worked on dozens of award-winning films, including the Sundance Audience Award‐winning Fuel, The End Of Poverty?, Rachid Bouchareb’s London River, and Oliver Stone’s South of the Border.
This film is being shown at the Left Coast Forum because the film maker, Equitas Entertainment, is committed to producing compelling and important projects that provide opportunities for the under-served in the film industry while closing the gender pay gap. They hire and train formerly incarcerated people and other members of underserved communities.
In this thriller, IMPRISONED, Dylan Burke (Juan Pablo Raba), attempts to move on from his former life as a criminal, with his true love, Maria (Juana Acosta). He soon realizes that his past will continue to haunt him, when he learns the new local prison warden, Daniel Calvin (Laurence Fishburne), has not forgiven him for an old crime.
Calvin does everything in his power to make sure that Burke pays for his past mistakes, even going as far as to frame him for a murder he didn’t commit, landing him back in jail. When the prison erupts into a riot, Burke and Calvin are each forced to make a choice between righteousness and revenge.
TheatreWorkers Project, supported by a California Arts Council Artists Activating Communities grant, collaborate with Friends Outside in Los Angeles County to provide “Moving Forward”, an opportunity for the formerly incarcerated and those on work release to tell their stories through the art of theatre at Dads Back!
