An epic tale of forbidden love, familial bonds, and cultural identity, unfolding across two timelines (the present and the summer of 1968), Bombay Blood explores the relationships between Raj, an older Indian man who emigrated to the States in his late twenties; his daughter Caroline, a first generation half-Indian American music journalist; and his old friend Devi, a former singer in a band in India’s all but forgotten late sixties rock scene.

A critically acclaimed, international festival award winning feature debut, ALL THE DAYS BEFORE TOMORROW effectively captures the push-pull of two people attracted to each other. In this quirky tale about a friendship that's almost something more, Joey Kern and Alexandra Holden plays pals who ought to be lovers, but their timing has never been right. When Alison (Holden) makes a late-night visit to Wes (Kern) on the eve of leaving for Tokyo to rejoin her beau, the two chums travel down an emotional memory lane, discovering truths about their relationship in the process. Richard Roundtree also stars as El Doctor, Wes's mysterious and comical guardian angel.
