“After multiple sold out screenings in Charlottesville, Virginia, award winning director, Ty Cooper, launches its screening tour in Richmond where it was filmed.”
One year after the filming of Amanda in Richmond, Virginia, the writer-director, Ty Cooper, wanted to return to the city to launch the tour on its filming anniversary weekend of Saturday, February 5, 7pm at Movieland at Square Park (1301 N Arthur Ashe Blvd.). Cooper states, “over the years, Richmond has become an epic center for the nourishing of Virginia filmmaking and considered the city as the most ideal launchpad for the upcoming screening tour.”
28 year old Amanda, a painter who lost her mother to cancer when she was only 9 years old, has carried this trauma since her childhood. As she prepares to submit her art collection for curation in a local gallery, Amanda also finds the hint of love in a guy, but she's suddenly forced to deal with the unresolved trauma she has carried since the death of her mother. This film is about love, art, relationships, trauma, and more - the art of life.
The film recently debuted with two sold out screenings in Charlottesville, VA. “After receiving such astonishing feedback and witnessing how emotionally impactful the movie was for viewers, it provided me with the best gift an audience could provide a writer and I want to share that gift with others”, stated Cooper. Richmond will see a familiar face on the screen when Heather VanCleave, 2021 Miss Virginia, plays the role of art gallery owner, Sharon.
The film has a total running time of 45 minutes and will be immediately followed by a 45 minutes panel discussion moderated by Andy Edmunds, Exec Director of the Virginia Film Office, with the writer-director and cast members. Movieland was chosen as the host theater for the Richmond screening because of their convenient location and beautiful large screen, which further enhances the viewer’s experience.
