Los Angeles, CA, June 01, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- What could an ex male-exotic-dancer and an older brick salesman possibly have to talk about? An opinionated Alphonso Bow, trained in the martial arts, spars over a Mexican lunch with Frank, his voice of reason who provides him with jobs and materials, as well as his daily obsessive debate regarding, among other things, life on other planets. Speaking entirely too loudly, they cover topics as diverse as Samuel Beckett and Adolf Hitler, religion and sex, early child behavior, and a severely injured dog. We've all heard that talk is cheap, and that it takes money to buy whiskey, but this round story about an unlikely relationship between an old bull and a young manic one refuses this chestnut.
The Sarki's captivating debut film, Alphonso Bow never stops delivering on its every promise. Andy Culpepper of The Hollywood Beat calls the film "An edgy, impressive debut,” and “a rich and enjoyable experience." Written by M Sarki and directed by son Lije Sarki, Alphonso Bow stars Jeffrey Pierce (The Nine, Castle, The Foreigner, Charlie Jade), Michael Dempsey (Lie to Me , Desperate Housewives, Mad Men, Bowfinger), Kate Rodger (General Hospital), and Kasey Buckley (from the country music duo Miss Willie Brown, who recently appeared on The Jimmy Kimmel Show and is set to perform at BAMAJAM June 3rd with Zac Brown and Hank Williams Jr.). Also featured in the film is music by the talented Jason Russo of Hopewell and Common Prayer. Russo composed and recorded two classic folk songs that can be found in the opening and closing of the film. A taste of the music can be found here http://alphonsobow.com/soundtrack.html
Alphonso Bow premiered at the Dances With Films Festival in Los Angeles, and was also an official selection at The Detroit Independent Film Festival (nominated for Best Feature and Best Director) and The Derby City Film Festival. A special screening of the film celebrating its release will be held Wednesday, June 16th at Cinespace in Los Angeles, kicking off a great week for film in Los Angeles with the Los Angeles Film Festival to follow on June 17th. Members of the media and film industry are encouraged to attend and will be provided with special accommodations. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for additional information and to RSVP.
