Imagination Acquires SXSW Winner ‘THE LIGHT OF THE MOON’

The Light of the Moon SXSW

Imagination Worldwide has acquired the worldwide rights to rape drama THE LIGHT OF THE MOON.

The production company based on LA has an emphasis on female storytelling. The Light of the Moon took the Audience Award at SXSW, follows New York architect Bonnie (Stephanie Beatriz) after she is sexually assaulted during a night out with friends, and consequently struggles to regain intimacy and control of her life and mental well-being.

Michael Stahl-David, Conrad Ricamora and Catherine Curtin also star. The film marks the feature length debut of writer-director-producer Jessica M. Thompson.

Michelle Mower, CEO of Imagination Worldwide said:

“Watching the news, has there ever been a more vital time for a film to face our rape culture head on? When I first saw THE LIGHT OF THE MOON at SXSW, I thought it was the most raw, honest portrayal of life post-sexual assault that I had ever seen.”

Thompson said:

“We made this film to contribute to the dialogue to end rape culture around the globe, and winning a strong distribution partner will allow us to spread this message far and wide.”

Imagination Worldwide will release the film in the US and Canada in the fourth quarter of 2017, with additional plans for a college campus tour. They will then coordinate for a worldwide DVD and VOD release.
