“HOUSTON- Blink Movie Premier”

  “Blink” is the latest film project from Houston, TX native Courtney JáPaul Glaudé. The movie was released earlier this year, to industry professionals, at the 2017 Los Angeles Short Film Festival, and is now set to premier in select AMC theaters in Houston & Atlanta March 2nd through 8th. Allstate insurance recently backed the film as an acting sponsor to help shine a light on such a serious topic. Houston’s Mayor Sylvester Turner has declared March 2nd as “Courtney Japaul Glaude” Day with a proclamation honor. This public honor will kick off on Friday, March 2nd, 2018 and will continue with annual recognition.
Allstate is committed to “Blink” as part of the company’s “Purple Purse” initiative, which is led by spokeswoman Serena Williams with the purpose to help empower domestic violence survivors by offering resources and tools for them to stay free from abuse. Further, the Partnership Against Domestic Violence (PADV) has a “Every 9 Seconds” campaign that piggybacks on the theme of “Blink”, which includes having a spokesperson for PADV attend and speak at Blink red carpet movie premiers.

“Blink” is the dramatic story of Nailah Belle as the character tries to navigate the depths and effect of domestic violence. Belle discovers that the calmest seas are often the most turbulent below the surface. From the outside, the meticulous facade of Nailah and husband Chris’s relationship looks perfect. The community doesn’t suspect domestic violence exists in the home, but the violence is unbearable as Nailah seeks out perfection and is looped into a life of a domestic violence victim, showing how everything can change in just one blink.

“It’s a serious subject matter addressed with tact, but in a manner that gets your attention. Courtney JáPaul Glaudé does an amazing job with the writing of what sadly is reality for many women. The ThinkZILLA team is proud to help garner national awareness of this film and hopefully help victims reach out for help,” said Velma Trayham CEO of ThinkZILLA PR & Consulting Group.

Domestic Violence in America is a prominent topic, which can be circumvented with proper education – like media tools in motion picture form such as “Blink”. Currently, and according to the TheHotline.org, “1 in 4 women (24.3%) and 1 in 7 men (13.8%) aged 18 and older in the United States have been the victim of severe physical violence by an intimate partner in their lifetime.”  Bianca Siplin and Will Scott star in “Blink”.
