Only Light - Directed By Evita Castine - USC School of Cinematic Arts (SCA)

 

 

Our own Evita Castine who is currently directing the University of Southern California movie, Only Light, is credited as a writer, producer, photographer, and Emmy award-winning producer.

 

Her first year film at USC, Saudade has played at several film festivals in Chicago, New York, Louisville, Martha’s Vineyard, the Art Institute of Chicago, and was also included in the ACT Now’ Foundation’s New Voices in Black Cinema at BAM Cinematak in Brooklyn, NY (Brooklyn Academy of Music). Saudade was recently selected to play in a 20-year retrospective of African-American short films at the S.E. Manley Film Festival in Hollywood. Her other films Free Meal and Crown and Glory have both shown on network television programs including BET’s “Lens on Talent” and Aspire TV’s “American Black Film Festival Independent.” Furthermore, Evita holds a Masters of Arts in Journalism from the University of Iowa. http://onlylightmovie.com/cast-crew/

 

Only Light is a film about the unseen and dehumanizing world of International Human Sex Trafficking in the United States and essentially asking the audience to take their blinders off. This photo taken by was shot on location at the South Coast Botanic Garden in Los Angeles, California. The goal was to create the character's homeland: the Congo. "It has been both a challenge and an adventure to make this happen.

 

As you probably know, Los Angeles looks nothing like the lush green forests of the Congo; however, with determination, creativity and a touch of imagination, we were able to create a perfect location for our African scenes. We really felt as if we had traveled to Congo for a day, and as good friends do, we brought you postcards from our travels." ~ Elena Ostroumova | Producer
