We are very excited to announce that “Out of My Hand” will have additional theatrical screening at IFC Center starting on November 13th!’
“Out of My Hand” takes viewers inside the humble life of Liberian rubber plantation worker, Cisco. Severe working conditions, failed unionization and corporate corruption ultimately drive him away from his family and his country to the foreign streets of New York City where his past forces him to confront his sense of isolation and belonging.
“Out of My Hand” debuted in the Panorama Section of the 2015 Berlin International Film Festival.
Director Devin E. Haqq has this to say about the arrival of the first official teaser for “Ambition’s Debt”, a dark, brooding, mumblecore take on Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar: “Highest regard to the entire cast and crew for this phenomenal work. I’m so proud of what we are doing with this story.”
“Ambition’s Debt” stars Nathan Darrow, Carra Patterson and Peter McRobbie and is slated for release in 2017.

Indiewire has an excellent review of our film, “Out of My Hand,” now in it’s North American premiere at the LA Film Festival.
‘ “Out of My Hand” constantly lulls you into thinking that you know where it is going only to have events play out in unexpected ways. Fukunaga and his team have made a film that elegantly walks a tightrope. It eschews cliche and hoary plot points but it never does so in a way that seems unpredictable just for the sake of unpredictability. No mean feat.
… Fukunaga and his team adopt a simple, naturalistic approach in presenting this arduous labor in a way that recalls Italian Neo-Realism.’
