Somewhere in the world every 90 seconds a mother dies. Inspired by the true story of Angela Burgin Logan (Jazsmin Lewis) first published on http://www.ladiesliveandlearn.com the film “Breathe” showcases how a mothers dream can turn into a nightmare. Set against the breath taking backdrop of Niagara Falls and Western New York, the beauty falls in love with Samson Logan (Samson Logan). She’s a successful marketing executive and he is a recording artist on the rise. The two seem to have it all. When they decide to marry and become one their idyllic life begins to shatter shortly after they receive news that they are expecting. Angela gets a sense of foreboding; she feels ill and unknowingly begins to get stalked by a silent killer. Although mysterious and unusual signs are present with her doctor telling her it’s in her head, her fears and cries for help are diminished. Angela always wanted the fairytale; the job, the husband and the kids. But with a killer lurking will she have her happy ending?
The American Black Film Festival seeks, honors and rewards excellence in international Black Cinema. It has grown to be recognized as the premiere Black film festival in the United States. “Breathe” will world premiere in July at the star studded event in Miami where over 3,000 industry executives, celebrities and media attend.
Nia Enterprises is thrilled with the film’s selection into the ABFF as it is known, as “Breathe” is a film which aims to be a catalyst in the conversation about maternal health for the general market but importantly for the ethnic market so being honored by the top U.S. film festival targeted to people of color specifically African Americans is very rewarding.
