Chiaroscuro, Baby - Premier

A world premiere of the feature film "Chiaroscuro, Baby" will be held at the Florida Theatre on November 4th, 2009. The red carpet premiere will be black tie required and is expected to be one of the biggest film events in the city’s history. Tickets officially go on sale August 7th at the Florida Theatre box office as well as through Ticketmaster.

Christopher Bolla, Christianna L. White, and Milan Alley star in the film, produced entirely in Jacksonville under the working title, "Self-Portrait". The story follows an aspiring painter who compromises his ambition for his seductive girlfriend, only to be torn when his empowering new muse reignites his passion.

The picture takes cues from the classic and underground cinema of the 1960s, with inspired vintage costumes and makeup, not to mention an aged black & white design to the finished product. A retro soundtrack composed by local rocker Joe Parker and his band, Celestials, also stands out.
