Shadow Puppet Chosen For All Voices Film Festival

Shadow Puppet Chosen For All Voices Film Festival

NEW YORK – The short film “Shadow Puppet” has been selected for Amazon Prime Video’s first annual All Voices Film Festival held last month.

All Voices was launched with the goal of presenting stories that reflect underrepresented perspectives and to encourage diversity on both sides of the camera. “Shadow Puppet” explores the aftermath of sexual assault between those involved in intimate relationships. It probes into relational dynamics and how survivors of assault are often compelled to put aside their own grief so they can provide comfort to those who care about them.

Written and directed by Daniel James McCabe,the film is intended to provoke conversation and expand on the #MeToo movement. It asks viewers to look into the mirror and examine their own responses. Emma Ishta (“Stitchers,” “Crown Vic”) produces and stars in “Shadow Puppet.”

The film has been selected for five other film festivals – The Bowery Film Festival, Hunter Mountain Film Festival, The Art of Brooklyn Film Festival, NYC Festival of Cinema and the Soho International Film Festival.

McCabe has written two full-length plays, several one-acts, three feature length screenplays and a miniseries titled “Salt of the Earth,” with Oscar/Tony nominated actor Michael Shannon attached as producer. He has also worked for years as a lighting technician in the New York film and TV industry on such projects as “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” on Amazon, “Maniac” for Netflix), and “The Greatest Showman” for 20th Century Fox), among many others.

We've a lot of things still to add (No Peeking Behind The Curtain!), but we want to make sure what is current online is working without issues. To do this each day we'll add more articles, tweak a feature here, remove a feature there. Just to keep things moving along in the right direction.
