US-based sales agency arrives with a slate including Meera Menon’s Farah Goes Bang.
Veteran marketing executive Michael Fister [pictured] has launched the US-based sales agency Angel Grace Productions at the EFM.
Fister, a former Turner Pictures Worldwide and ABC Television network executive, arrives with a slate that includes Meera Menon’s Tribeca 2013 selection Farah Goes Bang.
The film is described as equal parts road movie and buddy comedy, sex farce and ‘chick flick.’ Menon co-wrote the screenplay with Laura Goode and makes her feature directorial debut. Nikohl Boosheri, Kandis Erickson and Kiran Deol star.
John Deery’s 2003 thriller Conspiracy Of Silence stars Brenda Fricker, Hugh Bonneville, Chris O’Dowd and John Lynch.
The drama was developed at the Sundance Institute Screenwriters Lab and won the National Board Of Review’s Freedom of Expression Award.
Conspiracy Of Silence is inspired by real events concerning the death of a priest in a small town in Ireland that opens a can of worms inside the Catholic Church.
“We are thrilled to launch Angel Grace Productions with two award-winning films,” said Fister. “Both movies are feature debuts by their directors, and both are great examples of truly independent films that deserve to be seen.”
