)-- After sitting for 4 years as a scene in an unreleased project, filmmaker Tia Cherie Polite, along with fellow producer Kevin W Jones, have re-engineered the scene and turned it into the newly released film, "The Interrogation," produced by Black Rose Dagger Films.
Filmmaker Tia Cherie Polite as well as her 2 partners Wendell Smith Sr. and James Jay O'Neal, self-funded the project in the hopes of increasing appreciation for original science fiction films and not remakes and describes the making of the film as a labor of love. "The thing that amazes me about the 'The Interrogation' was its ability to get people to work together,” said director Tia Cherie Polite, Black Rose Dagger Films.
“The Interrogation” is a science-fiction thriller starring Tia Cherie Polite as “The Interrogator” and Steven Huff as “The Commander,” and was directed by Tia Cherie Polite and Co-directed by James Jay O'Neal.
Other professionals attached are Cinematographer Barry Sander, Costume Designer Wendell Smith, Sr. and Sound Designer, Compositor and Co-Film Editor, Kevin W Jones.
The Commander of a space station, the last survivor of a recent attack, refuses to give up the codes to the station's computers during the interrogation. His resolve will be tested when he comes face to face with a woman who specializes in extracting such information.
