"Me + You"

Tweetable Logline: 

An American girl travels to Brazil and falls in love with a drugdealer from the favelas.


Elevator Pitch:

"Natural Born Killers" meets "City of God." Gritty, fast-paced, thrilling. Valentina travels to Brazil on the heels of her mother's death when her destiny collides with Marcelo, a drugdealer from the favelas. As the world around them spirals out of control and she plummets into a life of crime, the only sanctuary they have is their love for each other.

Production Team:

Director/Producer/Writer: IYIN LANDRE (Monday Mornings)
Co-Producer in Brazil: DOUGLAS ROSA (Linha de Passe, 2 Coelhos)

About the Production:

Being an Asian-American female filmmaker, my path is very singular. There haven't been many before me, so I've had to find my own way, blaze my own trail. After finishing my script last year, I decided to go to Brazil to film a trailer -- I went down there alone, with only 2 emails in my pocket, never having had been to South America -- and it wound up being one of the most electrifying experiences of my life. You can check out the 1min trailer in the Kickstarter campaign, we're currently raising funds to shoot the feature.


Current Status:

Pre-production.
