Directed by acclaimed celebrity photographer turned filmmaker Amanda Marsalis (Vogue, GQ) and starring Mamie Gummer (CBS’ The Good Wife, CAKE) and Anthony Okungbowa (The Ellen DeGeneres Show, MOTHER OF GEORGE). ARRAY has acquired worldwide distribution rights. The announcement was made by ARRAY Founder Ava DuVernay.

“We’re excited to introduce Amanda Marsalis and her gem ECHO PARK produced by Anthony Okungbowa to audiences hungry for the work of bold, women directors and filmmakers of color,” explained Array’s Executive Director Tilane Jones.

ECHO PARK takes viewers inside a diverse East Los Angeles neighborhood where residents contend with life and love while being challenged to define themselves in spite of their zip code. Sophie (Gummer) flees from her life of status and security, developing an unexpected romance with Alex (Okungbowa) who is also in search of a new start.
