Fresh off the success of his short film, Love and the Game, Daniel Ali is back working on a new full-length feature film titled DELILAH for which he serves as Writer and Director. Based on his second novel, Across the Middle, Delilah is guaranteed to break your heart and challenge you to believe at the same time. The film boasts a diverse cast led by rising actress Michelle Batista, (Love and the Game), in the title role with Jonathan H. Ragins co-starring. Ali has assembled a great crew including camera operators, Roger "Chino" Cordoba and Lief Urias. The talented young Souleymane Doumbouya is the film's Cinematographer with Executive Producers Noel Rojas, Dwayne Smith, Derrick White and Virginia Caamaño.
Filming for Delilah began in November 2021. The project is currently still in production and is expected as a late summer, early fall 2022 release. Delilah will be distributed in association with Fast Forward Films and Homestead Entertainment, responsible for providing high-quality independent content for digital platfomrs the likes of HULU, TUBI, and NETFLIX. A dark, gritty love story, Delilah crashes against conventional ideals on relationships, inner conflict, and the often unfamiliar shades of redemption.
"Delilah sails into murky waters, delving into matters of victim sexuality and drug addiction. It begs the unforgivng question, if you knew everything about the person you love, what they really thought and felt at their core, would you still be in love with them? I think viewers will relate to the characters in this film; their perfectly flawed humanity and the way they approach the everyday struggles with their own inner demons. I think it'll all resonate in a very real way. " - Daniel Ali
