I am very happy and grateful to announce my becoming one of the
directors of and a co-producer of the independent feature film, TUCHT,
an ASAOPE Filmworks production (Visit my Internet Movie Database page).
is a raw, gritty psycho-thriller/dark-comedy inspired by the true-story
of 8 remarkable lives that depicts - unflinchingly - the exigent
social-welfare issue of Child Abuse, and its related issues of
Suicidal-Depression, Mental Illness, Domestic Violence, and
Homicidal-Tendencies. TUCHT shares the undeniably proven POWER of
UNCONDITIONAL LOVE & FORGIVENESS to heal even the most horrific
of human conditions.
It's rare for a feature film to have TWO directors, and this speaks to
the collaboration spirit of the writer/director of TUCHT, Alex Equality
Molina, as a leader in pioneering change in cinema and using the art of
ASAOPE. ASAOPE comes from the Sanskrit language and means "The Healing
Power of the Performing Arts."
