Every Nine Hours


Coming to audiences in 2019, from youth advocate and novelist Jim St. Germain (A Stone of Hope) and Emmy-award winner Adam Margolis, Every Nine Hours is a modern-day exploration of skin color and gender and how they affect one’s ability to participate in relationships and society. In 2017, 987 people were shot and killed by police in America. One every nine hours. Black men were 3x more likely to be in that number than any other group of people.

Every Nine Hours stars Phillip Smithey (“Code Black,” “Grace and Frankie”), Elisabeth Ferrera (“Lethal Weapon”), Kahyun Kim (“American Gods”), Marcy Goldman (“Airplane!”) and legendary actor Danny Trejo (Machete, Predators).

The film is produced by the award-winning team of Ari Rutenberg and James Kicklighter (Angel of Anywhere, Desires of the Heart), co-produced by Jameelah Nuriddin. The director of photography is Lauren Guiteras, casting by Jaime Gallagher (The Great Illusion, Know Your Enemy), featuring a crew comprised of over 50% females and minorities.
