Park City, Ut – January 27, 2012 – Participant Media and Affrm (African-American Film Festival Releasing Movement) have jointly acquired U.S. theatrical rights to Middle Of Nowhere, an elegant and emotional drama chronicling a woman’s separation from her incarcerated husband and her journey to maintain her marriage and her identity. Written and directed by Affrm founder Ava DuVernay, the film was produced by DuVernay and Howard Barish with producer Paul Garnes. Staring into the hollow end of her husband Derek’s eight-year prison sentence, Ruby Sexton fights to support him on the inside and survive her own identity crisis on the outside. Through a chance encounter and a stunning betrayal that shakes her to the core, Ruby is propelled in new and, often frightening, directions of self-discovery. Affrm will distribute the film theatrically later this year, activating marketing and promotional support through its broad grassroots collective powered by the nation’s top black film organizations. »
