My friend Jill Maxcy has directed a new film, "Black and Blue" and she is having a free screening at the Directors Guild in Los Angeles. If you would like to see this film...for FREE, please call the DGA (Director's Guild of America) and make your reservation.

Here's a blurb about the film:
'Every once in a while, a young actress finds the right role to truly showcase her talent. Noted Canadian singer and songwriter, Christine Evans, makes her motion picture debut in the independent feature film – “BLACK AND BLUE.”
17 year-old Amber doesn’t have much in life but her music and her dreams. When her mother O.D.s, the closed-down teenager is sent to live with a violent uncle. Amber escapes to the streets, where she hooks up with a group of kids who survive by playing their music for anyone who will listen. Frightened and lonely, Amber is given the gift of hope by an aging blues legend, Billy (Zac Harmon), who teaches her how to play from her heart. Armed with her guitar and her indomitable teen spirit, Amber begins to build a positive life for herself. PG13 (great for teen girls.) '
