Washington, DC (PRWEB) August 18, 2009
The independent film "Misunderstandings" will hold its red carpet premiere on Sunday August 23, 2009 at 5:00pm at the Cinema Arts Theatre located at 9650 Main Street in Fairfax, Virginia 22031. Why is this independent film so special? In addition to dedicating this film to five very special women who lost their battles to cancer, profits from this film will be donated to cancer research. It is estimated that almost 270,000 women will die from cancer and approximately 713,000 new cases of cancer will be diagnosed in 2009. Having a personal connection to all 5 women, Executive Producer Neeta Wooten hopes that this contribution will aid in continuing to decrease these numbers.
"Misunderstandings" is a dramatic film about a professional woman (Nicole) who walks in on her new fiancé (Rasan) in bed with another woman. Rasan insists it's a "misunderstanding" and both of their friends collectively ridicule, tease and give very detrimental advice regarding what they should do turning the situation from bad to worse. The more Nicole tries to believe Rasan her efforts are combated with evidence to the contrary which makes them both question the worth and future of their relationship.
The dynamic cast includes leading male actor Walter Maxfield Jones, leading female actress Danita Mischelle with supporting cast Wil "Onix" Lash (VH1's I Love NY), Victoria "Shaqwanna" Davis (Russ Parr Morning Show), Alex Scott (BET's Coming To The Stage), Tameika Chavis (HBO's The Wire), Playboy Magazine model Joy Glass, Napoleon Rogers, Rodney Green, Valeta Sutton and introducing Robyn Wood with additional appearances by Jeannie Jones (Radio One "WKYS" personality), Darnerien McCants (Former NFL player Redskins/Eagles), Kerry Rhodes (NFL - NY Jets), Michael Walton (US Track Star) and others. Executive Produced by Neeta Wooten and Tamiko Thomas, story by Neeta Wooten, adapted by Susie Kahlich, directed by Malik Pollard with original music by Dre Knight and post production sound at D'Orr Studios (David Orr and Matt Scribner), Ideal PR Films has produced a project it is very proud of.
"While the storyline of the movie has nothing to do with cancer, it was placed in my heart to put the cause at the forefront of the film because of the magnitude of the impact the deaths have had on my life over the course of creating this project. These 5 women are Kim Pelt, Tiffani Handy, Jennifer Wooten, Tania Wharton and Garcia Gabriel Johnson. Each one is uniquely missed, but I do hope this helps to honor their memory, even if in a small way," said Neeta Wooten.
Friends and celebrities alike have raised their voices about the film's charitable cause giving supportive comments.
"Many members of my family have been diagnosed with cancer at one time or another. A few have passed because due to the cancer being too aggressive. There's no way to describe seeing someone you love having to endure such pain… It's a beautiful idea for a portion of the profits from a production be donated to cancer research and foundations," said Actress Angell Conwell. Sean Jean model and producer Datari Turner's grandmother passed away from cancer. He said, "Whenever you are in a position to give back, you should. It's all a part of paying it forward. Cancer research will always be an ongoing ever evolving process." Denyce Lawton, actress from Tyler Perry's "House Of Payne," longtime activist and supporter of the Children's Hospital said "It's not always about what you can get out of a situation nor is it about whether you have millions or not! If one million people donated at least a dollar, we'd have one million dollars going towards research that will help babies live off of life support, unknowing victims of HIV have a second chance of life, a mother can watch her daughter walk down the aisle on her wedding day because her chemotherapy worked! We may all be in need of something material, but there are a lot of people who just want to live!"
Neeta Wooten believes just that. If everyone pitched in and did just a little bit, we would all be in a better place and further along helping one another to fight and live. Neeta went on to say, "Once I decided to make the profits of Misunderstandings about benefitting cancer charities and research, it was placed in my spirit from this point further that ALL of my films will have a portion of the profits donated to charity. That is why I created a new production company which is based around giving back to the community. 'Misunderstandings' is the first of many film projects that will be produced through this company and I hope people will find it in their hearts to support our projects."
