THE IRAN JOB


Director: Till Schauder
Producers: Sara Nodjoumi & Till Schauder
Executive Producer: Abigail Disney
Check out the Kickstarter Campaign »

THE IRAN JOB follows American basketball player Kevin Sheppard as he accepts a job to play in one of the world’s most feared countries: Iran. With tensions running high between Iran and the West, Kevin tries to separate sports from politics, only to find that politics is impossible to escape in Iran. Along the way he forms an unlikely alliance with three outspoken Iranian women. Thanks to these women, his apartment turns into an oasis of free speech, where they discuss everything from politics to religion to gender roles. Kevin’s season in Iran culminates in something much bigger than basketball: the uprising and subsequent suppression of Iran’s reformist Green Movement – a powerful prelude to the currently unfolding Arab Spring.







FORK FILMS and FULL MOON FILMS are in development with three feature films...

SPLIT


When a young actress, working as a stripper, and struggling to claim her dark side and her sexuality, becomes obsessed with a mask maker, she sacrifices parts of herself and her life, piece by piece, in order to win his love. At the same time she enters a mythic journey in the theater that blurs her performance, her dreams and her real life and results in a provocative and powerful confrontation that frees them both.

Writer and Director: Deborah Kampmeier
Producer: Abigail E. Disney and Troy Johanson

LONELY HUNTER


The story of 1940's Southern gothic writer Carson McCullers and her two tumultuous marriages to the same man, “”Lonely Hunter” will span 35 years in McCuller’s life and feature notable figures including her best friend Tennessee Williams, her protégé Truman Capote, her roommate Gypsy Rose Lee and collaborator Ethel Waters. McCullers was a wild woman who transgressed gender laws and the color bar searching to understand her own mysterious passions.

Writer: Sarah Schulman
Director: Deborah Kampmeier
Producer: Abigail E. Disney and Troy Johanson
