“The Secret of Joy” – Entertainment professionals from Hollywood, the UK and Italy have joined forces to produce “The Secret of Joy”, a 12-minute short movie, a book and a song, which will be donated non-exclusively to the Kids’ Cancer Research Foundation to raise the awareness of pediatric cancer.
From August 28, 2015 through September 3, 2015 “The Secret of Joy” will be screened at the Laemmle 7 theater in North Hollywood and all box office revenues will be donated to the Kids’ Cancer Research Foundation. Tickets are available at TheSecretOfJoy.org. More screenings will be held in New York, Washington DC, London and Rome in the fall.
“The Secret of Joy” tells the story of a beautiful dream in King Arthur’s kingdom, a land populated by valiant knights, beautiful ladies, little elves and monsters to be defeated. A world of fantasy and beauty only a child can imagine; a tale that enchants the viewers until life brings them abruptly back to reality. Joy, the little 11-year-old princess, is fighting the monster of cancer. Sounds simple? It took almost 1 year of hard work, 54 costumes, 100 pieces of jewelry, 35 pairs of medieval shoes, 7 days of filming in front of a green screen and over 25,000 frames of full CGI to bring this idea to life on the big screen.
