Distribution company Area 23a has announced that the animated feature film Silver Circle will open in Los Angeles on April 5th.  After opening in New York on March 22 the film will continue to platform out to most major markets through traditional theatrical runs and special event screenings following the NYC premiere. Directed by Pasha Roberts and written by Steven Schwartz Silver Circle takes indie animation to another level combining elements of action romance and monetary policy in a story depicting a near-future dystopian vision of an America controlled by an all-powerful Federal Reserve. Silver Circle focuses on a group of Underground Rebels led by the charismatic Zoe Taylor (played by Philana Mia). Under Zoe’s leadership the Rebels out-maneuver the oppressive Federal Reserve while creating a guerilla currency based on silver.  Following a HousStab (Dept. of Housing Stability) protest where one of the Rebels is killed Zoe confronts a straight-laced federal agent: Jay Nelson (played by De'Lon Grant). While helplessly falling for the strident and beautiful rebel leader  he eventually begins to question his own allegiance to the Fed. Ultimately Jay must decide whether to remain loyal to the Fed or join forces with Zoe and the rebels to create a powerful strike against tyranny. “In addition to comic book fans Silver Circle will connect with anyone who has been paying attention to the Fiscal Cliff the liberty movement – which was officially formed around Congressman Ron Paul’s presidential bid – and American politics in general ” said director Pasha Roberts.  “Our animated indie film brings this story to a broader audience:  an audience who is excited to see a feature film which offers a deep look at the Federal Reserve and the power it wields.” “We are excited to be partnering with Pasha on Silver Circle ” said Area 23a co-founder Kirt Eftekhar. “The film tour will also include Q&As with celebrity panelists special edition comic book giveaways music performances and film-themed after parties.” The commercial presentation of the film follows special screenings and promotions throughout the country at Comic-Con conventions including NYC and New Orleans.  Roberts created the film with his independent animation studio Two Lanterns Media.
