First Film by Puerto Rican Filmmaker to Receive National Distribution Through AMC Independent™
Hollywood, CA – Moras Productions and M&F Entertainment have announced the release of their indie film, 30 Days With My Brother on April 8, 2016 with limited distribution in select markets through AMC Independent™. The emotional drama directed by Michael May stars Adrian Nuñez and Omar Mora who also wrote and produced the film. 30 Days With My Brother will also be distributed in Puerto Rico by Caribbean Cinemas.
Omar Mora is the first Puerto Rican from the island to produce a film resulting in national distribution in the U.S. through AMC Independent™. A feat not to be taken lightly, Mora has been working towards this goal since he began his writing career in 2012 with the intention of documenting his stories and producing them into feature films.
Mora is a member of the National Association of Latino Independent Producers (NALIP) and it was at the 2015 NALIP Media Summit where Mora learned about AMC Independent™ through a workshop. Led by AMC Theatres’ Nikkole Denson-Randolph, the workshop provided Mora with the knowledge and tools needed to successfully distribute his film.
“The AMC workshop I attended last summer was one of the best experiences ever. I received so much valuable information which is currently helping me market my film,” said Mora. He added, “I attended so many workshops and conferences at The Summit and learned so much, that it gave me the confidence to self-distribute my film, something I never thought I would do.”
A heart-warming drama, 30 Days with My Brother is the story of two brothers who are forced to confront their past, themselves and try to restore their relationship as brothers. Starring Mora and Nunez, 30 Days is a highly emotional look at the lives of two brothers from Puerto Rico who are separated by tragedy at a young age. After 17 years the brothers reunite, one a doctor, the other a dark and embittered young man holding on to his rage of his upbringing.
30 Days With My Brother also star Stefy Garcia, Evelyn Michelle, Amy Schloerb and Enrique Fosse. The film was written by Omar Mora and produced by Moras Productions and M&F Entertainment. For more information, go to: www.morasproductions.com
