Friedman’s “5th & Alameda” is the story of Sara, a pregnant woman who is an innocent bystander in a robbery. After Derek, the robber, comes to Sara’s house, Sara is presented with the opportunity to seek vengeance on the criminal.
Shot in downtown Los Angeles, the film features award-winning star Saye Yabandeh as Sara, and Corey Sevier of “The Immortals” as Derek. Also featured in the film are notable stars Mario Van Peebles and Vince Lozano.
Richard Friedman says, “the performance of the cast is unbelievable.. it was so exciting to make the film with such talented people.”
As a past nominee at the Action on Film Festival, Friedman goes on to say, “being featured at the festival is such a benefit to filmmakers. Not only is it a great time, but we can also get exposure, and make connections with other passionate people in the industry.”
“5th & Alameda” will be screening at July’s annual Action on Film Festival. The festival will showcase more than 600 films while attracting thousands of filmmakers, writers, celebrities, and fans alike in Pasadena, California.
