Check out the first full release trailer for Victoria Mahoney’s Yelling To The Sky, which MPI opens in NYC this Friday, December 14th, to be followed by an expansion into other major markets, all in conjunction with a cable VOD, and digitial platforms. The coming-of-age drama, produced by Mahoney, Billy Mulligan and Ged Dickersin, stars Zoë Kravitz, Antonique Smith, Gabourey Sidibe, Tim Blake Nelson, Jason Clarke, Yolonda Ross, Tariq “Black Thought” Trotter, and Shareeka Epps.
In this gripping urban drama, rising star Zoë Kravitz plays 17-year old Sweetness O’Hara, the daughter of an African American mother and a white father, who is struggling to find her place in a rough inner city neighborhood. Her father is either absent or abusive; her mixed race background makes her an outsider; and drugs and violence abound. Sweetness finds herself in a downward spiral of drug dealing, shoplifting and fights with a bully (played by Gabourey Sidibe, Precious) before a series of events leads her to rethink her life and to explore her options for a fresh start…
Yelling To The Sky debuted at the Berlin Film Festival in 2011, commencing its film international festival circuit travels, attracting acclaim along the way.

The state of Illinois would have to allow ordinary citizens to carry weapons under a federal appeals court ruling issued today, but the judges also gave lawmakers 180 days to put their own version of the law in place.

Illinois had to provide us with more than merely a rational basis for believing that its uniquely sweeping ban is justified by an increase in public safety. It has failed to meet this burden. “The Supreme Court’s interpretation of the Second Amendment compelled the appeals court to rule the ban unconstitutional, the judges said. But the court gave 180 days to “allow the Illinois legislature to craft a new gun law that will impose reasonable limitations, consistent with the public safety and the Second Amendment as interpreted in this opinion, on the carrying of guns in public.” David Sigale, an attorney who represented the Second Amendment Foundation in the lawsuit, called the decision by the appeals court in Chicago “historic.” CONTINUE READING..
