A nice tour of festivals for us.

After a couple of years of jetting around to film festivals in Canada, America, and France, “Take Me Home” is finally getting it’s long-awaited public release.

I’m thrilled to be able to share this project, which I wrote for director Kim Tran, with the world. It’s a touching piece and the second installment in Kim’s trilogy of dreams, the first of which (“Soon Enough“) I also wrote with Kim. It’s wonderful to see a piece of work get a little recognition like this one has, it’s both rewarding and reassuring at the same time. It’s also rare that one is given the opportunity to work with so many talented people on a single project, and I would like to both publicize the film’s release here, and give a shout out to our amazing cast and crew.

To begin, here’s a note from director Kim Tran on the day of the film’s release.

“Hi there!

Today we have a BIG ANNOUNCEMENT, we are officially releasing “Take Me Home”! We would like to take this opportunity to thank everybody involved in the making of the movie: our crazy talented cast, Tirra, Rhona Rees, Al  Miro and Johnny, our dedicated team, our friends and family… And of course YOU, who supported the movie! THANK YOU!

It has been such an incredible journey and we are so happy we get to finally share it! So here it is, ladies and gentlemen, “Take Me Home.”

“Lily is a long-suffering insomniac, trapped between a traumatic past and an uncertain future. Her best friend Emma pulls Lily from her seclusion for Emma’s first art exhibition. During that evening, Lily will have to confront Edgar, a mysterious man, and reconnect with her old friends Emma and Jansen. At the end of the night, nothing will remain the same. Lily must make the decision to either move forward with her life, or stay mired in the past.”
