With live audience events finally able to return to New York art houses, "Used and Borrowed Time," written and directed by Sophia Romma, will have its red carpet world premiere May 7 at 7:00 PM at Quad Cinema, 34 West 13th Street in Greenwich Village. The film is a psychological drama phantasma in which an interracial couple's idyllic love rises above the hatred of a vengeful white supremacist family in segregationist Alabama during the 1960s. It has been translated from its original English into Greek, Spanish and Italian and is available currently on Amazon Prime, Apple TV and the Vyre Network.
A full-length feature with an American cast of twelve, it is co-produced by Garden of the Avant-Garde Film (USA) and Theatrical Foundation and Reval Film Studio (Estonia). Its story is a surreal tale of a blind, elderly, Jewish New York actress who relives her past through brutal people she "stumbles upon" at a mystical present day Alabama autumn fair. She time-trips, recalling her ill-fated love affair with a Black civil rights activist in Birmingham during the civil rights upheaval of the Sixties. Principal photography was done in Long Island during the winter of 2019-2020 and post-production was completed in late 2020 in Estonia.
