World Premiere of IMITATION GIRL Starring Lauren Ashley Carter at Cinequest Film Festival 2017!



Iranian-American filmmaker Natasha Kermani’s film IMITATION GIRL, featuring indie horror actress Lauren Ashley Carter (DARLING, POD), has been included in the Official Selection of the Cinequest Film & VR Festival 2017, and will celebrate its world premiere in March in Silicon Valley.

A mysterious being appears in the Southwestern desert and assumes the identity of the first person she sees - a woman on a magazine cover. Taken in by Iranian immigrants, she forms an understanding of her new surroundings, and comes to appreciate the beauty and the sadness of her new world. At the same time, Julianna, Imitation’s world-weary earthly double, knows both glitz and grit working as an entertainer in New York City, where her fraying life and relationships threaten her dreams for an audition that might finally set her on a happier path. On learning of Juliana’s existence, Imitation heads to New York, where only by sacrificing themselves to each other can the cosmic twins complete a full portrait of a woman.

I had the chance to interview Lauren Ashley Carter a couple years ago and she does wicked good impersonations of both Holly Hunter and Jodie Foster. Can't wait to see this one!

Ambition is a powerful drug that can inspire positive change. It can force you outside of the comfortable boxes you place yourself in. It asks you to stretch and reimagine not only the person you are but the person you could be. Most great men and women have a deep relationship with what they see as their purpose. This is a personality trait never driven by or limited to the pragmatic and there in lies the problem. Logic be damned, when a sense of determination is your north star. 
Michael Vaughn (Sommer) is an ambitious psychic on the road promoting a book that no one is buying. Using parlor tricks and audience plants Vaughn helps people "connect" with loved ones who have passed on. Somewhere in between a traveling preacher and a low-rent John Edwards he sees himself as a man destined …
