Legendary Indians outfielder Kenny Lofton to debut film in Cleveland on Dec. 3
Legendary Tribe center fielder Kenny Lofton will bring the first screening of his production company’s new film, “My First Miracle,” to Cleveland on Dec. 3.
Lofton’s FilmPool Inc. began in 2004 and has grown into a boutique post-production company’ it’s now growing further into a television and film production company, with a number of projects in development.
“My First Miracle” is an inspirational film that tells the story of Angelica, a 17-year-old girl battling a rare form of cancer only found in multiracial people, Myelodyplastic Syndrome (MDS). Lacking health insurance and searching for a bone marrow transplant, Angelica’s life is very challenging, but she is able to find friendship and love with Sean, a homeless boy running from his troubled past. Together, through faith, hope and prayer, they witness how God works in mysterious ways.
The Greater Cleveland Film Commission (GCFC) will screen the film on Dec. at Atlas Cinemas in Euclid (22624 Lakeshore Blvd.), and a limited number of tickets are available to the public for a $15 donation by clicking here. A portion of the proceeds from the screening will be donated to MetroHealth’s Cancer Care Family Community Room. The film opens for a limited run on Friday, December 4, 2015 at Lakeshore 7.
“Cleveland and the Indians will always have a special place in my heart,” Lofton said. “The message of hope and faith in ‘My First Miracle’ is one that I knew would resonate with the people of Cleveland, and that’s why I’m so happy to be able to share it with them.”
The film stars Quinton Aaron (“The Blind Side,” “Be Kind Rewind”), Sean Patrick Flannery (“The Boondock Saints,” “Suicide Kings”), Valerie Cruz (Showtime’s “Homeland” and “Dexter”), Matthew Rauch (Cinemax’s “Banshee,” “No Reservations”) and Jason London (“Dazed and Confused,” “Out Cold”).
