BROOKLYN, N.Y., May 3, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Brooklyn based screenwriter and filmmaker Tony Lindsay, will celebrate the upcoming June DVD/Digital release of his drama/thriller feature, "Where Hearts Lie", with a gala red carpet event at the AMC Empire 25 Theater, 234 W 42nd St, NYC on Tuesday, June 7th.
The evening will begin at 6pm with a reception, meet and greet, and step and repeat with several of the principal actors in the film. The screening of the film will begin at 7:30 pm. After the film, from 9:30 to 10 pm, there will be a brief question and answer session for the audience with the actors.
The DVD of the film will be released on June 7th, 2016. It will be available for purchase in select Walmart locations. The film will also be released digitally on June 21st on iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, and other digital platforms.
Produced by Kingsmen Films, LLC, the film features such notable actors as Clifton Powell ("Ray", "Rush Hour" "Next Friday"), Malik Yoba ("Empire" "Why did I Get Married" I & II), and Taral Hicks ("A Bronx Tale", "Belly").
"Where Hearts Lie" premiered at the 2015 Ocktober Film Festival and the Treasure Coast International Film Festival in Port St. Lucie, FL.
The film won the Audience Choice Award at the Ocktoberfest Film Festival 2015 and the Best Feature Film, Best Screenplay, Best Editing, and Best Director awards at the Treasure Coast International Film Festival 2015. Carl Gilbert, Ocktober Film Festival Manager called the film, "A must watch. Relevant and compelling film and audience favorite."
Since last fall, "Where Hearts Lie" has won a total of 10 film festival awards, ranging from "Best Feature" and "Best Editing," to "Best Director," for Lindsay.
Starring newcomers Alexander C. Mulzac and Erin Sanderson, the film depicts protagonist Brave Williams, a hard working single father gambling his career, freedom, and almost his sanity in an effort to protect his young son.
Inspired by true events, and classic relationship thrillers like "Fatal Attraction" and "A Thin Line Between Love and Hate," the film highlights the drama, intensity, and unpredictability that can unfold when choosing the wrong partner.
"As a Black single father, I feel that my perspective is a fresh one, and hopefully this film can be a catalyst for a new dialogue," says Lindsay. "I wanted this to be a realistic film, and I think it's a strength that it's so relatable to a lot of the audience. " Lindsay even cast his 8 year old son Jordon in the role of Cristian, Brave Williams' son.
The film also touches on the issue of families struggling to care for older loved ones suffering from Alzheimer's disease. Lindsay has had several family members and family friends in that position and would like to spread awareness.
Almost the entire film was produced on location in Brooklyn, particularly in Lindsay's neighborhood of East New York. In an effort to provide opportunities to members of his own community, Lindsay hired many residents of East New York as cast and crew members as well.
