After six years in the making, director Thomas McAlevey's first feature length film "Adventuress Wanted" is premiering on the big screen in the heart of New York City.
This 85-minute movie will have its World Premiere at The New York International Independent Film & Video Festival on Thursday, July 29th at 8:10pm, Screen 3 at Village East Cinemas at 181 2nd Avenue (near East 12th) in Manhattan. Tickets are $15.00 and include entry to the after party at Union Square Lounge (see www.nyfilmvideo.com for tickets and details).
"Adventuress Wanted" is a film about love and life, about heroic efforts in the face of adversity, and about noble intentions gone awry. Set against the majestic and dramatic landscape of Africa, the film counterpoints uncommon natural beauty with the universal challenges of a developing human relationship.
"Adventuress Wanted" chronicles the amazing journey of newly met couple Yoshiko and Tom as they pilot their tiny Beach Buggy across all of Africa; armed only with their wits, the daring duo brave everything from close encounters with lions and rhinos to a death-defying illegal entry into Sudan. There is no additional camera crew, no follow vehicles, and no support team of any kind! From soldiers with AK-47's to irate elephants - our intrepid travelers go it alone. Through the tears and the mind-boggling physical challenges, Yoshiko and Tom keep their camera rolling.
The film will have its West Coast premier in September at the Downtown Film Festival in Los Angeles; details forthcoming (www.dffla.com).
In addition,"Adventuress Wanted" is now being distributed worldwide by Taurus Entertainment (with offices on the Paramount lot in Hollywood). A DVD is slated for public release soon.
