The website and teaser for Deluge, a film we’ve profiled during its indiegogo campaign, was released online this week at www.delugethefilm.com and https://vimeo.com/63639045. The teaser is embedded below.
A merging of fantasy and coming of age drama, the film centers on a 15-year old girl, Tiana, who witnesses a mass drowning and is then introduced to an aquatic underworld in the wake of the tragedy.
Written and directed by Nijla Mu’min and staring newcomers Jasmine Johnson, Kelvin Harrison, Chasity Rogers, as well as Oliver Thomas (HBO’s Treme), the project was filmed on location in New Orleans and Franklinton, Louisiana.
Nijla is the recipient of the 2012 Princess Grace Award Foundation, Cary Grant Film Award for Deluge, which is her graduate thesis film for Calarts.
We will keep you updated on the film’s premiere and upcoming screenings. In the meantime, follow the film on twitter @DelugeTheFilm and facebook at https://www.facebook.com/DelugeTheFilm.
