In March of 2017, STRANGE FILMS released their second short film: CENTER CITY.
Since then, the film has been awarded Best Drama at the Philly TV Film Festival, and has been officially selected by a select few of film festivals, as well as a few special screenings across Philadelphia, including more recently, by the Philadelphia Film Society, including an interview with the director. With each showing and the word of mouth spreading through Philadelphia, the film has been actively floating around and getting praise for its unique look, style, music, story, and characters.
The story has spawned lots of questions of who these characters are and what the hell is actually going on in the film. Since the release, Frank and August Aguilar decided to continue the series to explain some of these plot lines, starting off with fan favorite character: BUTCH.
The follow up to the series now begins with THE WOMAN, which is actually a prequel to CENTER CITY, and serves as an explanation of why the events of the original film took place and who is actually pulling the strings behind it. Bringing back the lead actress, Jenny Moon, and introducing the two other female leads, Nikki Marie as JACKIE and Erika Stephanie as THE QUEEN, dive back into the world of these characters and learn more of what is really going on.
Shot on location at O’Neals in Philadelphia, and featuring an original song written for the film by local band Airways, here is the story of THE WOMAN.
To continue the series, the filmmakers will now embark on the final companion piece following DRIVER, and lastly concluding with the finale: CENTER CITY 2.
