Victoria Mahoney's impressive feature film debut, Yelling To The Sky will open in New York on December 14th, and will be followed by a major market roll out, in conjunction with a release on cable VOD and all major digital download platforms - via MPI.

Last year, MPI Media Group picked up North American rights to Yelling to the Sky, a coming-of-age drama produced by Mahoney, Billy Mulligan and Ged Dickersin, and starring Zoë KravitzAntonique SmithGabourey SidibeTim Blake NelsonJason ClarkeYolonda Ross, and Shareeka Epps.

Kravitz stars as Sweetness O'Hara, an introspective and shy teenager who tries to blend into the crowded halls of her high school. But an increasingly complex home life and a growing threat at school soon carry her into a world of reckless ambivalence. 

A Sundance Institute Screenwriters and Directors Lab selection, Mark Silverman Maryland Film Fellowship, and Annenberg Film Fellowship winner, Mahoney's Yelling To The Drama debuted at the Berlin Film Festival in 2011, commencing its film festival circuit travels, attracting acclaim, and some controversy, along the way.

Look for marketing to start to ramp up over the next month+.

Here's the trailer as a refresher:

    I look forward to seeing this, although I would like to see Gabby play an opposite role in the future. Making her the bully just seems cliche'.

    Well her roles in The Big C and Tower Heist are quite different I believe. Check those out if you haven't already.

    Thanks, Courtney! I was so mad with myself for missing it at UrbanWorld. This has been on my list for a while.
