She Has A Name Gets A Cinema Release In The UK

‘She Has A Name’ is a stunning new Indie thriller inspired by real events, packing a gritty punch to deliver a powerful message relevant to everyone, wherever they are in the world.

Jason, a lawyer, poses as a john to build a legal case against a ruthless pimp who is trafficking girls in Asia. He meets NUMBER 18, a girl forced to work as a prostitute in a busy red light district whose testimony is key to his case. Can he convince her to risk her life to testify for the sake of justice? There is a conspiracy of silence that trails back to the seats of power in America. ‘She Has A Name’ is a blisteringly original conspiracy thriller that uncovers the horrors of human trafficking and the powerful business men that are implicated.

Directed by Daniel and Matthew Kooman, She Has A Name stars Giovanni Mocibob and features an international cast including Will Yun Lee (The Wolverine, Hawaii Five-O), Eugenia Yuan (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Sword of Destiny, Memoirs of A Geisha) and Gil Bellows (The Shawshank Redemption, Ally McBeal). Add in the evocative and beautifully shot location of Thailand and the impact of Andrew Kooman’s screen play, adapted from his own play, loses none of its poignancy in translation from stage to the big screen.

‘She Has A Name’ will be released in selected cinemas around the UK from 13th June 2017 and tickets must be purchased in advance through She Has A Name’s Our Screen page If there’s not a screening planned near you already, you can request a local screening to be added through Our Screen in addition to the already announced dates.

OurScreen Cinema

You may have heard me talk a lot on social media about OurScreen and how they are changing the way that cinema is enjoyed. They are also revolutionising the way that independent films can be enjoyed and, by making it easier for Indie film makers to bring their projects to the big screen, this is already making a huge difference to the availability of films for the cinema going public.

"That all sounds really exciting, but  I haven't got a local OurScreen cinema near me" You might say and you would be wrong. The clever bit behind the OurScreen business model is that they don't try and re invent the wheel as they use existing independent and chain cinemas for their output. This means that  your local Vue, Empire, Picturehouse, Reel or Independent cinema stands a fairly high probability of being already part of the ever growing network of OurScreen friendly cinemas. 

For example if you live in Edinburgh then the Odeon and Vue cinemas are part of the OurScreen network. Similarly, in Cambridge you can choose from the fabulous Arts Picturehouse as well as the Vue cinema for your OurScreen films. OurScreen's cinema network serves the whole of the UK and so you are never that far away from being able to access the wealth of independent film that is available. 

So when you see a social media campaign for a film that grabs your attention there is no reason for you to ever miss out on experiencing it for yourself. 

For a full list of OurScreen cinemas please see OurScreen Cinemas Page for a full listing. The list is constantly updated as new cinemas are added on a regular basis
