HOLLYWOOD, CA –TUESDAY, July 29, 2014 - Mance Media, a global film and television distribution company based at Sunset Gower Studios in Hollywood, CA, today formally announces the acquisition of the feature film HARD SUN, a drama film about Fragile-X Syndrome.
Mance Media has acquired all worldwide rights to the film and plans to release it in 2014 on onDemand, iTunes & DVD/Blu-ray.
Mance Media will also present the film to international buyers at the American Film Market (AFM) in November.
Mance Media acquired the film from production company Two Guys and a Film, the production company also behind the film RUN LIKE HELL.
Logline: After the death of her parents, a young woman assumes primary guardianship of her special needs brother. But as she attempts to balance her new life with her brother and her own blossoming romance, it becomes painfully clear that life will only make room for one.
“I attended the world premiere at Dances With Films and was moved by the way Canyon Prince so delicately tackled the subject matter of a family coping with a mentally handicapped boy. Mance Media looks forward to getting this touching story out to the world,” says Matthew Mancinelli, CEO of Mance Media.
“Hard Sun is about life. Plain and simple. We don't pull any punches with regard to that. Sometimes, most times actually, life is hard. Everything is not so cut and dry. And I think this film delivers on that. On the pressures of family and individuality. About playing the cards you're dealt. Because most of the time, people don't have any other choice." says Canyon Prince, Director.
