The inspiring drama TRI screens in Laemmle Theatres – Music Hall, Beverly Hills, this Monday July 18, 2016, 7:30 PM.
There will also be a special post-screening Cast and Crew Q&A with actors Shawn Pelofsky, Jensen Jacobs, Chris Williams, Jaylen Moore, Farai Kofi, Producer Ted Adams and Director Jai Jamison.
The film, which recently walked away with the top prize at the Northern Virginia International Film & Music Festival, is an inspiring, emotionally-charged drama about a medical technician with a history of not finishing things who is inspired by a cancer patient to sign up for her first Triathlon. The film’s potent garland of performers includes Jensen Jacobs and legendary TV star Tim Reid.
Natalie (Award-winning actress Jensen Jacobs), an ultrasound tech with a history of not finishing things, is inspired by a cancer patient to sign up for a Triathlon. Natalie is introduced to the strange (and aerodynamic) world of triathletes and meets a colorful cast of characters as she trains for the Nation’s Triathlon. With the support of her new teammates, she digs deep to discover just how far she can push her mind and body.
TRI is the first scripted feature narrative about triathlons that has been developed for theatrical release. Triathlon is the fastest growing endurance sport in the world and was the fastest growing of all sports in the UK in 2014. There are over 600,000 athletes registered with USA Triathlon, and over 3.2 million worldwide.
Although the film uses triathlon as a backdrop, the niche target market for the film is female runners. Of the roughly 20 million finishers of running events in 2014, 60 percent were women.
The concept of TRI is to raise awareness and hope for those who are seeking compassion or understanding while dealing with cancer as a caregiver, a patient and a survivor.
The writing team for TRI includes a two time Ironman finisher and professional triathlon coach who has led cancer awareness programs; a cancer survivor; and, an award winning screenwriter who has lost loved ones to cancer.
Jensen Jacobs, Shawn Pelofsky, Jaylen Moore, Chris Williams, Kelly Spitko, Tim Reid and Walker Hays star in a Jai Jamison film, written by Theodore Adams III, Monica Lee Bellais and Jai Jamison. The Executive Producers include Kimberly Skyrme, Regional Casting Director for House of Cards, and Russell Williams II, a two time Academy Award winner.
