Jermaine Quick - Director
A fictional tale based on true events
(Black PR Wire) Philadelphia, PA – The now 5-time International Independent Award-Winning Film, SUGAR is a fictional tale about a single parent Mom / successful boutique owner by day, who masquerades as a vigilante by night protecting battered and abused women. Written, Directed and Produced by Indie Award winning filmmaker Jermaine Quick, the CEO of illadelstyles Entertainment LLC and EQ Films Productions. SUGAR will premiere on the big screen June 16th 6pm @ the Landmark Ritz 5 Theater 214 Walnut St. in Philadelphia, PA.
Physical abuse on woman has always been considered an isolated event. Overturning Roe vs. Wade makes women more vulnerable. Thus, SUGAR (played by New York Actress Cynthia Belcher) empowers women to take charge of their life. Incorporating the nostalgia of the Black Women Comic Book heroes of the past, SUGAR depicts a single mother that is raising her daughter “Laniya”, (played by the sensational young Philadelphia actress Giselle Martin). Sugar’s heroic efforts at night get entangled with her day life, and causes Laniya to get kidnapped by her nemesis. Will she be able to protect the interest of Sugar, or will she melt away in despair? This 93 min. drama/action indie film is registered in over 40 film festivals across the world and has received 5 awards to date.
The award-winning writer and director Jermaine Quick continues to make films that question our social environment and our temperament towards the physical ill’s of this world. While most indie films from Philadelphia lean towards the drug life, Jermaine finds a way to soothe the familiar and raise the consciousness. Henceforth, his mid-covid Philadelphia Independent Film Festival Award for Best Local Film, his Los Angeles Motion Picture Award for Best Film in 2020, and his Black History Month nomination by the Greater Philadelphia Film Office for his fifth film “HEARTLESS”. The star-studded cast of the film SUGAR also includes the local former boxing champ Simon “One Punch” Carr (Mr. Everywhere!) who’s character is a boxing trainer. Parts of Sugar was filmed on location at his “One Punch” boxing facility in the Northeast.
