user

When Palm Beach International Film Festival Executive Director Randi Emerman visited the Marrakech International Film Festival last year, she was not prepared for what she would find.

But he is indeed on a quest to find God, or at least define Him/Her/It with his latest project, THE INVOCATION. Itier screened a seven-minute trailer of the film, which includes contribu...
