An American In Hollywood is an extraordinary portrayal of a group of young and talented aspiring film artists, struggling to climb the ladder in Hollywood. While faced with challenges and obstacles from the hard-to-crack glass ceiling of the complex film industry, these creative minds find a way to make their voices heard and their visions seen. With a superhero-based concept, this film follows a New York-born Writer/Director, Josiah, who leads his childhood friends to Los Angeles to pursue their artistic goals and dreams. Paul, a Producer/Assistant Director, Angelo, an aspiring actor, and Dorian and Trilok, aspiring Actors/Stand-Up Comedians, all cope with the day-to-day hardships of “making it” in Hollywood.
The film takes the viewer on a personal journey with Josiah and his relationship with a feisty young actress, Ayoka. This young couple both display their shared tribulations in trying to have a career in Hollywood, and maintaining a relationship. Driven by ambition, it doesn’t take long for this group of friends to grasp the reality of the commercial system they are up against, and the price of being a “hero” in America.
Co-stars, JD Williams and Hassan Johnson from the HBO hit series The Wire are reunited in this film, along with actors Stephen Hill, Azur-De and Richard Carroll, Jr. An American in Hollywood’s musical film score consists of a full spectrum of today’s hip hop and music stars, as well as some up and coming and underground artists including Talib Kweli, John Legend, Reef the Lost Cause and Chris Rivers (fka BabyPun). With this all-star cast and a music soundtrack that is sure to set the underground hip hop scene ablaze, An American in Hollywood is the movie to support during the UrbanWorldFilm Festival.
