Annabella Sciorra joins cast of 'Fresh Kills'
Academy’s Annabella Sciorra (Class of 1980) will star in an upcoming crime film called “Fresh Kills” as the character Christine. The story follows the women behind the men who ran the underground mob of New York City in the late 20th century.
“Fresh Kills” will be the first feature film financed by a global group of fan investors via this first-of-its-kind IPO on Upstream - the revolutionary Ethereum-powered digital stock exchange powered by Horizon Fintex ("Horizon") and MERJ Exchange Limited ("MERJ").
“Fresh Kills” comes from the creative mind of actress-turned-filmmaker Jennifer Esposito, a Hollywood veteran and advocate for advancing equality in the film industry. Ms. Esposito based the film on her time growing up in Staten Island. The award-winning actress was motivated to pave a non-traditional financing path to challenge and upend the inequitable systems she has observed and experienced in the entertainment industry. She will co-star alongside Ms. Sciorra.
Ms. Sciorra is well known for her Emmy-nominated performance as Gloria Trillo in “The Sopranos,” and she has also appeared in the films “True Love,” Cadillac Man,” and “Jungle Fever.”
