Joining the team of FALLOUT

Kimberlee Bassford is joining Te Maka Productions’ producing team on its narrative feature film in development FALLOUT, based on the novel Melal by Robert Barclay and set in the Republic of the Marshall Islands. The film follows the character of Rujen, an honest and hardworking Marshallese man forced by his American military superiors to choose either his cultural beliefs or the economic survival of his family.  The film is directed by Vilsoni Hereniko, whose previous feature THE LAND HAS EYES (2004) premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and aired nationally on PBS.
