Communities across America are slowly beginning to reopen business doors in our great country.
While some drive-in movie theaters are hosting screenings there is still a great demand for watching film at home. For now the film festival circuit is for the most part whispering in the shadows. But, filmmakers are still shouting to keep their projects alive.
Screaming loud and clear in the fight is film director Bailey Kobe. His phenomenal movie “Rag Doll” was on the festival path prior to the pandemic and was a bright star on that road. Scoring big wins at Queens World, North Hollywood Cinefest, and Philadelphia International Film Festival was just the start of the journey.
Kobe has taken an optimistic approach in his career when it comes to impactful filmmaking. Lockdowns are not going to stand in his way. Shut doors will not dim the dreams of the cast and crew behind his latest project.
“Rag Doll” is punching its way to success despite it all. The film is still in the ring and streaming luckily for all the fans. The audience just continues to grow.
Action fans will love this female-centered film that tells the story of Nora. She is that girl: the one who works overtime, helps out her family by all means, and leaves little for herself. She can’t even fathom a love interest. But with her one free hour a day, she takes out life’s hardships at the local mixed martial arts gym, where she is no longer who she is, if just for that hour.
When complications in her real-life cause it to crumble, she is lead to enter a championship tournament as a novice. But with life outside of the ring becoming harder and harder, will she even make it to the competition without succumbing to the violence in her life outside of the ring?
