Indie Film-Making: CA$H


I am beyond thrilled for my friend Azeeza and her sister, Zeenat for their incredible work on a new film called CA$H. The premise of the movie is centered around a struggling young couple who has been greatly affected in this economy. The husband finds a suitcase filled with cash and the thriller begins to unfold. What will they do with the money? Who does it belong to? Will the person it belongs to come looking for it?

The gorgeous Azeeza worked as Director of Marketing for the film and her equally beautiful sister, Zeenat served as Director of Media. Through their hard work and persistence, they packaged this independent film for Cannes and the American Film Market, eventually gaining Roadside Attractions (they released The September Issue) as their distributor. Film-making is a difficult, extremely competitive industry and it makes me so proud to see what these two talented young women have achieved, all while looking super glamorous, I might add.

I absolutely love the Desai sisters. The are definitely movers & shakers in Chicago, L.A and NY.Not only are they phenomenal at what they do, but they are die-hard fashionistas too! Above all, they're the sweetest girls! I heart them.

I love to read about young women who are motivated, especially when I'm briefly acquainted with them :) Chicago lacks in the film scene. I'm very proud of these Chicago girls who marketed this movie, took it to Cannes Film Festival, AFM and finally to a Hollywood studio like Roadside Attractions & Lionsgate! What a great start-- things will only get bigger & brighter from this point on! The cherry on top: beauty is NOT skin deep for these two smarties! Last but not least, I'm glad I clicked on this link because I LOVE this entire BLOG & plan to frequent it!
