Yesterday Was a LieYesterday Was a Lie


A groundbreaking metaphysical noir film from writer/director James Kerwin, YESTERDAY WAS A LIE combines "stunning black-and-white cinematography, a sultry jazz score and a refreshingly high-minded script" (Variety). Produced by a non-profit arts foundation, YESTERDAY WAS A LIE has gone on to receive over a dozen film festival Best Feature awards, critical praise, a release by Entertainment One, and a tenth anniversary re-release by IndiePix Films.

Kipleigh Brown "exudes Bacall" (Slice of SciFi) as Hoyle, a girl with a sharp mind and a weakness for bourbon who finds herself on the trail of a reclusive genius (John Newton). 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) 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) 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. "This ambitious film is a stunner, nothing less than the arrival of a major filmmaker" (KGO Radio / Flick Nation).

Also starring Nathan Mobley, Warren Davis, Megan Henning, Jennifer Slimko, and famed radio personality Robert Siegel.
