The inclusive distribution collective ARRAY is proud to announce the theatrical release date for its Spring 2016 release, ECHO PARK. Beginning April 15th, ARRAY will open Amanda Marsalis’ ECHO PARK in Los Angeles and New York City followed by a national tour.
“ECHO PARK chronicles the heartbreak and heartbeat of a thriving city through the eyes of a talented new woman filmmaker,” explained Array’s Executive Director Tilane Jones. “We are proud to amplify the voices of Marsalis and actor/producer Anthony Okungbowa in a celebration of women filmmakers and filmmakers of color.”
ECHO PARK is directed by acclaimed celebrity photographer turned filmmaker Amanda Marsalis (Vogue, GQ) and written by Catalina Aguilar Mastretta. Starring Mamie Gummer (CBS’ The Good Wife, CAKE) and Anthony Okungbowa (The Ellen DeGeneres Show, MOTHER OF GEORGE), 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.
ECHO PARK made its world premiere screening at the 2014 Los Angeles Film Festival.
