Actress Jasmine Guy Stars in Film about Missing & Exploited Children at BronzeLens Film Festival


 "What About Us?" a movie directed by Sundance award-winning producer Deatra L. Harris, explores the disparities of media coverage and resources certain families receive when their loved ones go missing.  The film which stars actor-dancer-director, Jasmine Guy will debut Friday, November 9th at the 3rd Annual BronzeLens Film Festival hosted at the Atlanta Marriott Marquis that will feature nearly 50 new films - new features, shorts, and documentary films from filmmakers across the country, the Caribbean, and Africa.

In "What About Us?" Guy portrays a troubled woman whose issues are not immediately apparent until the culmination of events at the end of the film.  The film is emotional, provocative and will certainly resonate with anyone who has been affected by a missing loved one. 

Visigoth Pictures partnered with Peas in their Pods, a local non-profit organization that supports families with missing children here in Atlanta.  The film used an Indiegogo campaign to raise funds and awareness for not only the production of the film, but to also help support their community partner.   Visigoth also found a way to further give back to the Atlanta community by having 16-year-old Atlanta based singer/songwriter Lyric Rachae' perform the title track to the film which was produced by Atlanta's own State of Mind Muzic.  In addition, they brought in 20 Dunwoody High School students to intern on set during production.

Media interested in interviews with Ms. Jasmine Guy or producers of the film should contact T.MORRISON AGENCY directly.  Media credentials and coverage for BronzeLens should be directed to Terri Vismale-Morris, Director of Public Relations(404) 346-0410
