The Light of the Moon




After her world is irrevocably changed, a successful New York City architect struggles to regain intimacy and control in her life. The Light of The Moon is a raw and realistic portrayal of the six weeks after a woman is sexually assaulted. 


The Light of The Moon had its World Premiere in the Narrative Feature Competition at the SXSW Film Festival in March 2017, where it won the Audience Award for Best Narrative Feature. The film was acquired by Imagination Worldwide and was released in select theaters in November-December 2017 to sold-out screens in both New York and Los Angeles.

The independent film stars Stephanie Beatriz (Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Short Term 12), Michael Stahl-David (Cloverfield, Narcos, LBJ), Conrad Ricamora (How To Get Away With Murder) and Catherine Curtin (Orange is The New Black, The Leftovers). The film is Jessica M. Thompson's feature directorial debut, and is produced by Thompson, Carlo Velayo and Michael Cuomo.
