Gravitas Ventures has acquired North American rights to Russel Friedenberg and Randy Redroad's dramedy "Among Ravens," starring Johnny Sequoyah, Amy Smart and Joshua Leonard. The film world premieres at the Nantucket Film Festival shortly and will open in select theaters and be available to view on video-on-demand platforms beginning on July 18.
Here's the synopsis per Gravitas:
Inspired by real events, Among Ravens follows the intertwined lives of a group of friends and family as seen through the eyes of 10-year old Joey (Sequoyah). When the group gathers for their annual 4th of July holiday weekend in Idaho, her mom (Smart), step-father (Leonard) and father (Friedenberg), along with a combustible mix of friends and entanglements, secrets begin to unravel and have an impact on young Joey.
"'Among Ravens' is an exploration of truth, friendship and the modern day family as seen through the eyes of a young girl magnificently played by Johnny," said Melanie Miller, Vice President of Acquisitions and Marketing for Gravitas. "Having worked closely with producer Heather Rae on 'Ass Backwards,' we know this is a great team and look forward to bringing the film to a larger audience this summer."
