Herwitz Selling "Laundry"

The Film Sales Company has nabbed worldwide sales rights to Maurice Jamal‘s “Dirty Laundry. The film is the second feature from the filmmaker and recently screened at the Urbanworld Film Festival in New York and Frameline in San Francisco. Starring Loretta Devine, the film is the story of a Southern black family rocked by the news that their son is living under a pseudonym and with a white boyfriend. The film will screen this weekend at Outfest in Los Angeles and has secured the support of the Human Rights Campaign (the largest national lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender political organization), which has been hosting additional screenings of the film. Announcing his organization’s support of the film, HRC president Joe Solmonese said in a statement, “At the end of the day, this film will spark more conversations that will lead to the changing of hearts and minds.” [Eugene Hernandez]
