LONDON BASED FILMMAKER, AMANDA ELIASCH'S DIRECTORIAL DEBUT FEATURE "THE GUN, THE CAKE & THE BUTTERFLY" HITS THE INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL CIRCUIT
ISCHIA GLOBAL FILM & MUSIC FEST (ITALY), NEW YORK CITY INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL AND NEW MEDIA FILM FESTIVAL (L.A.) KICK OFF A YEAR OF FESTIVAL CELEBRATIONS FOR ELIASCH.
(LOS ANGELES, CA, June 10, 2013) – Artist, poet Amanda Eliasch makes a splash on the international film festival circuit with her directorial debut, "The Gun, The Cake & The
Butterfly," in which she also stars and executive produced. The 75 minute stylish docudrama is Eliasch's self-portrait travelogue spanning her childhood in the English countryside to her current life as a high society, sophisticated, modern, international woman. Using her original poetry, and a variety of actresses embodying her alter egos, this is a rare, deeply personal glimpse into Eliasch's life.
No sooner did Eliasch complete the film than it was accepted into the New York City International Film Festival where it will screen at Tribeca Cinema on Monday, June 17.
The Ischia Global Film & Music Fest in Italy (located off the coast of Naples) screens the film in mid-July where she will be in good company with fellow Ischia-goers Christoph
Waltz, Samuel L Jackson, Nicholas Cage, Sir Tim Rice, Kenneth Cole, Vanessa Hudgens, Arnon Milchan, Lina Wertmuller, and Paul Haggis.
The actresses embodying Amanda Eliasch's various selves include Justine Glenton, Elizabeth Karr, Lisa Zane, Giulia Laudano, Mimi Dean as 'child Amanda' and Eliasch herself. Her son, opera singer/musician, Charles Eliasch, appears in the film as himself.
Edited by Leo Baron, with music by Boris Risdic, and shot in London, Los Angeles, Morocco, Thailand, and France, "The Gun, The Cake & The Butterfly" is the first film released as part of Eliasch's production company, Butterfly Movies Ltd.
Here is a link to the trailer: https://vimeo.com/66598989, which is in competition at New Media Film Festival on June 12.
