LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES , August 1, 2022 /EINPresswire.com / -- Director Erik Bernard and Executive Producer Courtney LeMarco of TLG Motion Pictures have closed a deal with 1091 Pictures, a Chicken Soup for the Soul Entertainment (Nasdaq: CSSE) company, for the digital release of their film Free Dead or Alive.

The film will be released on August 9, 2022, on all major digital platforms including iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, Xbox, and on cable and satellite on In-Demand, AT&T, Vubiquity, Direct TV and Dash.

Free Dead or Alive is the story of a young girl making a perilous journey from South/Central America to the United States unaware of the real dangers that lie ahead. The film stars Edy Ganem, Patricia Velasquez (The Mummy, The Mummy Returns), Seth Michaels (Red Notice), Alejandro De Hoyos (The Man From Toronto), Robert Avellanet (HBO Max's Menudo: Forever Young) and Al Coronel (Westworld) and Juan Pablo Olyslager ( La Llorona.) It is directed by Erik Bernard and is produced by Bernard and executive produced by Courtney LeMarco, Grady Craig, Mathew Helderman, Edy Ganem, Patricia Velasquez, Luke Taylor and Seth Michaels. Jasmin Espada, Wendy Pineda and Veronica Buenrostro served as co-producers.

“We are extremely grateful to 1091 Pictures,” said Bernard in a statement.“Free Dead or Alive is a relevant story about the realities immigrants face when trying to cross the U.S. border. But more importantly it is the story of the ups and downs between mother and daughter and how love knows no borders.”

“We are excited about the wide distribution reach of 1091 Pictures as well as their attention to diverse filmmaking,” added executive producer Courtney LeMarco.

“As an immigrant myself, I can relate to the journey and obstacles one would willingly face in favor of love, the type of sacrifice that goes beyond borders,” said Greg Maurice, senior director Global Acquisitions and Co-Productions at 1091 Pictures.“Throughout my career, I've been an advocate of representation, highlighting people of color on the screen and behind the screen. It's been a wonderful opportunity to partner with a talented filmmaker like Erik Bernard. He was able to capture the authentic experiences of immigrants through the amazing performances by Patricia Velasquez and Robert LeSardo.”

The deal was negotiated by Maurice on behalf of 1091 Pictures and by Max Czertok of Iuvit Media Sales on behalf of TLG.
