PO Trailer & Poster



Director John Asher’s hypnotizing ‘’Po’’, a runaway hit with audiences at various film festivals including Albuquerque, Houston and Palm Beach, will screen at The Golden Door International Film Festival on September 24.

The film, starring Christopher Gorham (“Covert Affairs”) and newcomer Julian Feder, tells of a recently widowed man who must learn to cope with becoming a single father to his 10-year old autistic son.Kaitlin Doubleday (TV’s “Empire”), Andrew Bowen (TV’s “The Division”), Sean Gunn (“Guardians of the Galaxy”), Caitlin Carmichael (“300 : Rise of an Empire”) and Bryan Batt (“Mad Men”) co-star.





“Po” is a story close to Asher’s heart, as his son has autism, and the filmmaker hopes the movie will bring a greater understanding and recognition of autism to the world.

Asher, whose previous credits include the comedy ‘’Diamonds’’ starring Dan Ayrkoyd and Lauren Bacall and ‘’Dirty Love’’ starring Jenny McCarthy, is the son of famed TV legend William Asher, the original director of legendary sitcom ‘’I Love Lucy’’ and creator of ‘’Bewitched’’.

See “Po” at the Golden Door International Film Festival in New Jersey on September 24 at 6pm.

The Golden Door International Film Festival was  founded in 2010 by actor Bill Sorvino and a small group of dyed in the wool Jersey Cityites.  The renegade band of “old time Jersey City” residents set out on a mission to shine a light on Jersey City, New Jersey and to provide an equal platform to all filmmakers well known and otherwise.  Since that time,  Golden Door International Film Festival has anchored itself as a cultural focal point of Jersey City.
