The red carpet premier for "Life of Gia" The movie
was a huge success with many celebrities and power players attending the red carpet event.
The response from the audience was overwhelming with expressions of great satisfaction and love for the film, the energy was positively amazing from our honored guest and we capped the evening off with an after party that had us dancing thru the night.
“Life of Gia” based on a true story about a girl who loses her family at the age of eight in a car accident. The driver of the car is an out of control drug addict. The young girl is forced to live with her an aunt who eventually dies of cancer forcing her to live with a grandmother who is also dying. Her need is to survive as well as take care of her grandmother who is the last important person in her life on the island; she is determined to find some kind of job in order to make life plausible.
Gia finds a job but it forces her to be around the lowest of the low, drug addicts, women of ill repute which results in her being raped and beaten. The film paints a graphic picture of her desperate determination to create a life of pride and dignity. She manages eventually to do just that; she discovers her own talents and natural intellectual gifts lifting her head on a level of success and dignity she has always needed and wanted.
Simon stressed the point of his story that one should never give up on one’s dreams. Not only that, it is important to consider the life of others before doing something which might result in tragedy. “When you’re very young,” he offered, “it seldom comes to mind certain realities of how your actions can affect the life of someone else. I just hope that my film will at least make people; especially young people become aware of this. Simple as that.”
The film stars Sarah Barker, Alex Mann, Mariela Garriga, Twon Johnson, Carla Shorts ,Carolyn Dupree ,as well as a cast of new talented young actors. The film is written /directed by Romane Simon who is an award winning filmmaker and author of best selling novel “Red to Black-The Power of Love.”
