But Diana is a powerful adversary, with equally powerful friends.

Looking for distributor, sales agent
1. Why is your film unique?
I am Evangeline is an alternative future science-fiction film. Poetic, foul-mouthed and violent, I am Evangeline charts a unique female journey in a world where clones exist alongside 1970s phones, bespoke tailors and a psychopathic bookshop owner.
2. What are the main themes from your film?
The main theme in I am Evangeline is the outsider's urge to belong, and the final understanding that to belong to oneself is the most powerful belonging there is.
3. What other films are you working on at the moment?
I am writing a new script set in Nuremberg in 1946. It's a love story featuring Dita, a British/German Jew, Henri, an American corporal and Romek, a Polish camp survivor, set in the midst of the most important international trial of the 20th Century.
4. What type of feedback have you received so far?
Very positive. I am Evangeline has won awards at both MUFF and STUFF.
7. Who do you need to come on board (producers, sales agents, buyers, distributors, film festival directors, journalists) to amplify this film’s message?
We are wanting to expand our audience through working with a distributor or sales agent.
9. Lastly, what’s a key question that will help spark a debate about this issue and film?
In a world where there is an overload of content, how can unique independent films still find an audience?
