Written and co-directed by Alex Molina of ASAOPE Filmz, “Tucht” is a raw and gritty psycho-thriller/
The star-studded, hand-picked cast and crew of “Tucht” will be on hand to welcome guests who will be treated to food, drinks and live entertainment to include members of the cast. From all early indications, Executive producer Molina’s diligence in conducting an exhaustive search to select the cast and crew for this, his first, feature film production is paying off.
Already, “Tucht” is garnering impressive industry buzz. The film’s stellar cast continues to grow with the recent addition of Joe D'Onofrio, star of “GoodFellas”
“TUCHT” introduces Tenin Baba Ndanani in its lead role. After three grueling days of casting last August, Molina declared, “Having auditioned some of the most gifted actors we've ever seen, including two Broadway ‘names’, the lead-female role in “Tucht” has been cast!” Ms. Baba Ndanani, already a seasoned veteran of musical theatre throughout NY/NJ, emerged the unanimous favorite to play the lead. A bright up and coming recording artist, Ms. Baba Ndanani will perform live at the kick-off event.
Brazilian-born, award-winning director, Moema Umann serves as a directorial consultant on the project. In 2010, Ms. Umann was nominated as best supporting actress at the World Music and Independent Film Festival and recently received the award for Best Female Director at the American International Film Festival for her short film, Before Breakfast. The short was recently picked up by the Cannes Film Festival.
