New Filmmakers New York to Screen Katherine Nero's 'For The Cause' in July

Writer/director
Katherine Nero’s dramatic feature
film “For The Cause” will be
screened in New York as part of the New
Filmmakers New York Summer Series on
Wednesday, July 2nd. The film last year
made its film festival circuit run after its world premiere at the Black Harvest Film Festival in Chicago.

Starring Charlette Speigner, Shariba Rivers and Eugene Parker, the
dramatic feature film deals with Mirai Scott (Speigner), a civil rights
attorney who is contacted by her father (Parker), a former Black
Panther that went underground 30 years prior to escape a murder charge, and who
urges her to take his case.

The
plot thickens since “Mirai is hesitant to defend a man she doesn’t know. However, her passion for justice and
curiosity about her father take over and she commits herself to his defense,
despite warnings from her boyfriend and her mother (Rivers). Mirai’s
attempt to win her father’s freedom uncovers painful and dangerous secrets from
her parents’ past.”
