From award-winning writer Steven Peros, author of the play and screenplay for Lionsgate’s The Cat’s Meow (starring Kirsten Dunst, directed by Peter Bogdanovich) and twice-published Samuel French playwright, comes FOOTPRINTS, a haunting, hopeful and unforgettable mystery. The film chronicles a young woman’s journey of discovery on Hollywood Boulevard in one day, from sunrise to sunset. Some of America’s most important film critics have praised FOOTPRINTS: “One of the Ten Best Films So Far This Year” Armond White (Chairman of the New York Film Critics Circle) “A Strong Original Piece of Work!” Mick LaSalle (San Francisco Chronicle) “A Delightful Hollywood Fairy Tale!” Kevin Thomas (Los Angeles Times) “A Wondferful Indie!” F.X. Feeney (Variety, Movieline) Sybil Temtchine (Ten Benny, opposite Oscar winner Adrien Brody, Passion of Ayn Rand, opposite Oscar winner Helen Mirren) stars as a young woman who wakes up at dawn on the famed footprints and handprints of Grauman’s Chinese Theatre in Hollywood with no idea who she or how she got there. Upon awakening, she wonders if she isn’t, in fact, lost in a dream. And perhaps she is. Regardless of whether she is dreaming or wide awake, our Mystery Woman sets off on her journey, from one person to the next, one famous locale after the other. Among the Hollywood fringe denizens with whom she comes into contact are a pair of tour guides (Charley Rossman, John Brickner), two super hero impersonators (Catherine Bruhier, Riley Weston), a Scientology auditor (Joe Roseto), and a poster shop owner (R.J. Cantu). She also finds herself disquietingly followed by a Stranger (Kirk Bovill) who may be real or a figment of her unsteady imagination. In their award-nominated portrayals of two veterans of the boulevard and all it represents, FOOTPRINTS marks the return to the big screen of Pippa Scott (John Ford’s The Searchers, opposite John Wayne, Auntie Mame) and H. M. Wynant (The Twilight Zone, Sam Fuller’s Run of the Arrow, It Happened at the World’s Fair, opposite Elvis Presley). Although our Mystery Woman’s feet only fleetingly leave Hollywood Boulevard, by sundown she will piece together the revelatory truth about her existence and the reason for her awakening, forcing her to make choices that will literally result in either her life… or death.
