Yesterday Was A Lie opens December 2009

LOS ANGELES – Indie production house Helicon Arts Cooperative has announced that E1 Entertainment US has acquired North American distribution rights to Fallbrook writer-director James Kerwin’s “Yesterday Was A Lie,” a sexy sci-fi film noir shot in classic black-and-white.

Named one of the year’s “Ten Best Films on the Festival Circuit” by Film Threat Magazine, “Yesterday Was A Lie” has screened in over 50 festivals on four continents. It has won numerous accolades including Best Director, Best Screenplay and Best Cinematography at New York Visionfest, as well as over a dozen Best Feature jury and audience prizes.

The film was also an official selection of the 2008 Fallbrook Film Festival. The film opened theatrically on December 11, 2009, and will be followed by a DVD release in March 2010.

A groundbreaking new noir film produced under Helicon’s “Intelligent Cinema” banner, “Yesterday Was A Lie” combines black-and-white cinematography with mind-twisting modern sci-fi themes such as the nature of time, reality and human consciousness.

The story follows Hoyle (Kipleigh Brown), a girl with a sharp mind and a weakness for bourbon who finds herself on the trail of a reclusive genius (John Newton, “Melrose Place”). But her work takes a series of unforeseen twists as events around her grow increasingly fragmented... disconnected... surreal.

With a sexy lounge singer (Chase Masterson, “Star Trek”) and a loyal partner (Mik Scriba) as her only allies, Hoyle is plunged into a dark world of intrigue and earth-shattering cosmological secrets. Haunted by an ever-present shadow (Peter Mayhew, “Star Wars”) whom she is destined to face, Hoyle discovers that the most powerful force in the universe -- the power to bend reality, the power to know the truth – lies within the depths of the human heart.

The film also features the voice of famed radio personality Robert Siegel. For more information about the film, visit
