Lon Haber & Co | IPPR and Beatrice Brigitte’s The Arcane Company announce the TIFF World Market Premiere of the new societal psychological thriller, Mindwash. The film stars Ben Edlin (Chicago Med, L.A.’s Finest) and Camille Hyde (All American: Homecoming, Katy Keane, The Wedding Year) and was written, directed and produced by Beatrice Brigitte (Gotham). Mindwash is Beatrice Brigitte’s feature directorial debut.
Producers include Beatrice Brigitte (Gotham), Nichole Galicia (Django Unchained, Mayor of Kingstown, Defiance) and Kazy Tauginas. (The Equalizer 2, American Rust, Dolemite is my Name, Lola, The Blacklist).
“We’re beyond thrilled to introduce Mindwash to buyers for the first time in Toronto,” said Lon Haber, Founder/CEO of Lon Haber & Co | IPPR. “Beatrice and her amazing team of filmmakers have created a masterpiece that speaks to global audiences in a very powerful way. The film raises the genre bar to new level and is commercially viable while remaining true to its core message and artistic integrity all at the same time.”
“Mindwash in itself has been an incredible experience from beginning to end. Each cast and crew member is equally pivotal in creating what became not only a feature film, but a work of art and a chilling love letter to society and the human race.” Said Brigitte.
Mindwash follows the story of Billy Seldom (Ben Edlin), a motivational speaker who is on the verge of becoming a household name with the slogan, “Think for Yourself.” He is about to reach a new pinnacle of success when the world suffers a catastrophic event. We follow him on a journey of self-destruction, including being on the verge of a cryptic demise of a co-dependent relationship with his longtime girlfriend Natalie (Camille Hyde), as he wrestles with the ever-changing landscape of media, fear, and influence. Billy tries to find his place in a world now spiraling out of control and exemplifying the lack of individual thinking. Billy must now ask himself if he really THINKS FOR HIMSELF.
“Producing Mindwash with Beatrice Brigitte was like a masterclass in work ethic, grit and leaping tall buildings in a single bound. I take my hat off to Beatrice who gracefully sidestepped obstacles while keeping us all on track, motivated and on budget. And, as if she weren’t already wearing enough hats as producer, writer, director; when my 1883 film schedule made it impossible to play Chloe in Mindwash she stepped into the role and the rest is movie magic.” Said Galicia.
Mindwash is further bolstered by its extremely talented crew, including an original soundtrack by Wynne Bennett, known for her work on Space Jam: A New Legacy, Janelle Monáe: Dirty Computer, Book Smart, and The 61st Annual Grammy Awards, and cinematography by Orlando Briones (Bully, Journey, A Promising Game).
Executive producers are Charles Reimer and Isabella Reimer.
