Mance Media has acquired "Hard Sun," by writer/director Canyon Prince. The film, Prince’s first feature, premiered at Dances With Films this year. Mance Media plans a 2014 VOD release that will see it on-demand, in the iTunes store, and available on DVD and Blu-Ray.
"Hard Sun" is about a girl whose brother is struggling with Fragile-X Syndrome, a cause of autism, but Prince says it is about much more than that. "’Hard Sun’ is about life. Plain and simple. We don’t pull any punches with regard to that. Sometimes, most times actually, life is hard." Alongside lead Robyn Buck, the film co-stars Ben Begley, John Bain, Tami Carey and Myron Natwick. It was produced by Two Guys and a Film.
