Still From 'Yelling To The Sky'

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 RossTariq "Black Thought" Trotter, 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. 

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

A new clip from the film has been released, featuring an honest, tender moment between Kravitz's Sweetness and Tariq Trotter as Roland (underneath you'll find the poster, with a quote from the review written by our very own chief editor/writer Tambay Obenson):
