Cinema Speakeasy is excited to present a sneak peek of artist and director Anthony Ferraro’s feature film, ‘The Writer‘. This is a film made expressly for all of us creative folk, artists who must balance creativity, desire, reality, and, well, mental sanity…
So come help us raise a glass to the thin line that separates us from the wrong side of the right path — and to the director, cast and crew who brought you this story on screen — in the LA premiere of this odd-ball, authentic and clever new film!
As always, BYOB: The theme tonight is brown-bagging.
HERE’S WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW:
TRT 62 min.
Directed by Anthony Ferraro
Starring Eric Michael Kochmer and Stephanie Sanditz
Music by John Arroyo
Based on Knut Hamsun’s novel ‘Hunger‘
Synopsis: The Writer wanders the streets in a search for belonging and a chance to get his work published. All the while he is fast losing his grip on reality. A chance encounter with a woman while he wanders the streets homeless gives him hope for a better outcome in his life. It will take all his concentration and effort not to blow it. Ultimately the story sheds light on the difficult balance between following ones passion in all things and the harsh realities of day to day living that most of us take for granted.
