“Alienated” tells the story of a married couple that is forced to confront their fatal relationship issues while on the brink of a possible alien abduction. The film stars veteran actors George Katt and Jen Burry, and features the last onscreen performance by prolific character actor and comedian Taylor Negron, who unfortunately passed early this year to cancer. He was 57 years old.

The film was produced by the prolific, NY-based One Way or Another Productions (in association with Fades 2 Black Media Group). Ackley, the director of the film, is a former Brooklyn College film student and local elementary school teacher. He is also a former Brooklyn resident, as is the film’s producer Princeton Holt, who has produced over 20 films.
“Alienated,” after winning 13 film festival awards including 3 for Best Feature, Best Director and multiple Best Actor awards, was acquired for distribution by Gravitas Ventures and will be released in limited theaters and on Cable VOD/VOD on March 31.
