Director Princeton Holt will attend both screenings
“One of the strongest, well made, generally effective, debut feature dramas I’ve seen in several years.”- IndieWIRE
“A touching film with a lot of depth and an incredible sense of weight. I felt as though I was right there alongside the characters – terrific experience.”- TcwReviews
Cookies & Cream is a character piece that centers on Carmen, a racially mixed single mother, who accepts an adult entertainment job to take care of her daughter and herself. This tale of sex work, relationships, voyeurism, family ties, new age dating and unbreakable career ambition is a powerful debut from an exciting new voice in American independent film.
“I wrote it during an extended stay at a hotel in the middle of nowhere. I was frustrated that the film I had (and still have) in development was taking so long to fund. It’s inevitable, but I got frustrated and wanted to say something – ‘in the meantime.’
Jace Nicole and I created a character while she waited tables and bartended. When I knew who this woman was, I disappeared to a non-disclosed location. No phone, no Internet, no friends. 6 sleepless nights and days later, I returned home with the script, and an unbreakable determination to shoot this one right away. Fully funded or not. For those considering making of your own first feature without healthy financing in place, I advise you to immediately reconsider.” – Princeton Holt
