Principal Photography begins April 4th on Marlo Bernier's transgender tale, Stealth, which spotlights both the unfortunate intolerance of society and the reinforcing power of acceptance.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASEPRLog (Press Release) – Mar 28, 2009 – Principal Photography begins April 4th on Marlo Bernier's transgender tale, Stealth, which spotlights both the unfortunate intolerance of society and the reinforcing power of acceptance.
The film, shooting in and around Los Angeles, California, is a Jackie Frost Films production in association with Scorpio Rising Films and funded by Mississippi Films, Susan Smith and Jon Lipitz.
Award-winning transgender actress, singer and renowned Professor of The Viewpoints at California State University and The Steppenwolf Theater, Alexandra Billings (Grey’s Anatomy) takes the lead as Veronica Terranova alongside Indie actresses Jennifer Fontaine (LOOK) and Elizabeth J. Martin (Expired) who complete the ensemble in roles as her two sisters.
Stealth steers audiences through the secretive and shocking events surrounding transgender Veronica Terranova. Sitting alone in a dark hotel room, a dead and dirty politician by her side, Veronica must make the difficult decision to call Jeannine, her younger sister, who has always been there for her. Panic stricken, Jeannine secretly calls their eldest sister, Celia, the only one who can truly help...but will she?
A powerful mix of sisterly love and abject rejection, Stealth is an insightful and candid look at how one family handles transgenderism. Marlo reveals, “...having lived my entire life as Mark, I know this world all to well. I am both honored and humbled to find myself in the company of such talent and am committed to delivering a work which will offer an understanding of the of the transgender experience.”
Behind-the-scenes, 4-time Outmusic award nominated and visionary transgender singer/songwriter Namoli Brennet will provide a haunting score, and award-winning documentarian Andre Enzensberger will lend his eye as the Director of Photography.
Stealth marks the second collaboration of the writing/producing team Marlo Bernier and Jennifer Fontaine. The team’s first endeavor ‘The Last Time We Were…’ garnered the duo a Silver Remi at WorldFest Houston and played to packed screenings at the Los Angeles International Shorts Fest and the Beloit International Film Fest. They currently have 5 feature scripts in various stages of development, including ‘Glass Houses’ which has attached actors Pruitt Taylor Vince, Austin Pendleton and Jason Connery, and is currently in the packaging stage.# # #Founded in 2001, by husband and wife team Jennifer Fontaine and Kerem Hanci, Scorpio Rising Films is dedicated to spotlighting new and emerging talent with visionary ideas. This duo remains committed to supportive collaboration with devoted and impassioned artists, encouraging original and inspired material.

I just watched an old Bill Moyers Journal on my DVR about the show "The Wire." My goodness it was way deeper then I thought.
The Wire was a devastating indictment of all that is wrong with America right now, from the economic collapse to the failed war on drugs.
You can watch Bill's interview with David Simon critically-acclaimed writer of the show.
