LOS ANGELES (PRWEB) April 03, 2020
A first-time filmmaker’s movie about hope and redemption is trending at number 3 on Netflix UK despite the novel coronavirus shutting down the industry. A winner of 4 film festival awards and a promoter of minorities and women in film, the movie 'Hollow Point' starring Luke Goss, Michael Pare, Jay Mohr, Juju Chan, Bill Duke, and Dilan Jay rates almost 5 stars on the popular digital platform during the stay-at-home movement.
“'Hollow Point' is a story about coming back despite tremendous adversity, so it’s not a surprise that at a time when people are at home and consuming more content, they’re drawn to a story about the resilience of the human spirit,” commented producer Dilan Jay.
Prior to the entertainment industry shutdown, 'Hollow Point,' directed by Daniel Zirilli, won Best Action Film at the Iron Dragon TV Action Fest in addition to other festivals’ awards.
“Seeing this film rise to the top of Netflix UK’s Trending category is thrilling mainly because so many people feel paralyzed by the shutdowns,” continued Dilan. “But it’s proof that people want always good stories, and that they accept lead roles played by minorities.”
The first actor of Sri Lankan origin to star in an action film in America, Dilan Jay seeks to make moves in entertainment that include more minorities, particularly Southeast Asians, as well as featuring women in key roles. Case in point, Dilan deliberately recruited and casted women as Director of Photography, Line Producer, 1st Assistant Director, and switched a male lead for the female lead actress, Juju Chan (Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny). Dilan’s film career started when he starred in the second largest budgeted film in Sri Lanka, the country from where his family immigrated, called 'Looking Back On The Lion' which is played annually during Sri Lankan New Years to this day.
Dilan Jay is an actor and musician whose #stayathome support involves daily live streams of his music, including a track about hope called “Better Days,” available on Spotify, Apple Music, and Soundcloud.
'Hollow Point' is being represented for international sales by Bleiberg Entertainment in Beverly Hills, with sales already concluded in Europe, Asia, and Oceania. The US territory is available.
