“As I Am"
Electric Entertainment and Nova Vento joined forces to bring American audiences the highly acclaimed film, “As I Am,” to theaters. The directorial debut from emerging writer/director Guy Davies, “As I Am” isset in the rolling hills of the English countryside and stars Harry Lloyd (“The Theory of Everything,” “Game of Thrones”), James Faulkner (“Game of Thrones,” “Bridget Jones’s Diary”) and emerging newcomer Joshua Glenister (“Indulgence”).
Dean Devlin, CEO of Electric Entertainment, comments “Our partnership with Nova Vento marks Electric’s return to releasing films theatrically. With people beginning to return to movie theaters, we couldn’t be more delighted to bring this beautifully crafted film to U.S. audiences on the big screen.”
“As I Am” is inspired by Davies’ life experience. Set in his home-town of Stroud, UK, the film paints a picture of small-town adolescence. The story follows Kai (Joshua Glenister), an aspiring writer, and his friends during the last week of their senior year in high school. How they choose to spend this time will wake sexual desires, cost one of them their life and leave each of them changed forever. The film is produced by Toby Cook and Matthew Cook, both founders of Fablemaze Production Company. Guy Davies is also a producer.
Brandon Smith, President of Nova Vento Entertainment adds, "This is a beautifully done film with themes that resonate deeply with audiences of all ages. We couldn't be more delighted to partner with Electric Entertainment on bringing such a fantastic film into theaters for film lovers to enjoy together on a big screen."
