Then Again, a New Feature Film that Explores Issues Related to Small Towns and life's passion.
A young girl's journey to discover her life's passion. Ayan Pratap's directorial debut, Then Again, is an important film in the sense that it leaves us with a profound connection with a part of ourselves which may not have been fulfilled yet.
Then Again is a small town girl's journey to discover her life's passion. This film explores life from the eyes of a creative person and the hurdles one's enviroment can create in the path of following dreams. For different people, the hurdles are different. Physical, financial, family or mental, whatever the hurdles may be, Then Again gives a lot of hope for people who have buried their dreams because someone said 'NO'.
Then Again was written by Jim Suthers while the story was Co-developed by Suthers and Pratap. The film stars Aleece Jones in the lead role of Alexandria Carlson with John Michael Herndon playing John Carlson as Alex's Dad and Christophe' Ivins playing Chuck Crowley, the world famous photographer and prodigal son who comes back to the small mining town of Cooper Flats and inspires Alexandria to further her dream.
The feature was shot in Southern California with a total time frame of 1.5 years from early development all the way through post production and completion.
"Making of Then Again was a true satisfying organic experience", said Pratap. Directing the first feature is always memorable and especially when it highlights important issues in society, he mentions. Pratap concludes that "Then Again is a very interesting blend of art and commerce, while still being a reflection of the society we live in. Every film has constraints like we did. We are happy that we were able to tell an important story with these constraints that is connecting with more and more people, which is evident in their reactions at the screenings."
