Executive Producer Will Meldman of Double Down Pictures says: “TRIBES delivers a very important message of inclusion, unity and the celebration of diversity in today’s society, something that I strongly believe in and that we all need to recognize, especially in our current times. It has been my honor and privilege to support this award-winning project and the positive narrative it carries.”
TRIBES garnered pre-Oscars momentum during its selection at the LA Shorts Film Festival where it surpassed 70,000 views and over a thousand positive comments from enthusiastic spectators.
TRIBES depicts a timely story. In this powerful and thought-provoking dark satire, the themes of identity and discrimination unfold during a train ride between two stations as an African-American, an Arab-American and a white man try to rob a train. However, no one wants to rob their own race. Self-identity is truly a bitch – a concealed premise perfectly fits under Nino Aldi’s camera, revealing our current social environment.
Starring Internet celebrities DeStorm Power (Punk’d), Adam Waheed (Pitch Please), Daytime Emmy-winning producer/actor Jake Hunter (Class Act) and a special appearance by comedian Jason Stuart, the funny live action short will have an upcoming presentation at the Cannes’ AmPav Emerging Filmmaker Showcase in 2021 and an online release on the highly curated www.ShortOfTheWeek.com, where it will be viewed from anywhere in the world.
The 10-min short film is directed by Nino Aldi, written by Andy Marlatt and produced by the three lead actors in collaboration with multidisciplinary filmmaker Jeion Green and award-winning Canadian producer Patricia Chica. The executive producers are Jordan Taylor Wright of Taylor Cut Films and Will Meldman of Double Down Pictures. Digital Jungle Post Productionhandled the deliverables of the short.
