Five Sisters Productions
are teaming up for
MANNA FROM HEAVEN!
MANNA FROM HEAVEN, the delightful
third film from
the five Burton sisters of FIVE SISTERS PRODUCTIONS...
An intelligent, feel-good movie
about rediscovering hope at any age.
MANNA FROM HEAVEN
(PG) is a fun, feel-good comedy about what happens when you get
a ‘gift from God’ (a financial windfall), but find out
many years later that it was just a loan -- and it's due immediately.
Through comic twists and turns of this feel-good film, the characters
learn about family, romance, reconciliation, and redemption by overcoming
the personal obstacles that have been holding them back in life.
The film's stellar ensemble cast includes
three Academy Award Winners -- Cloris Leachman, Louise Fletcher,
and Shirley Jones -- and stars of film and TV, including Ursula
Burton, Seymour Cassel, Shelley Duvall, Jill Eikenberry, Frank Gorshin,
Faye Grant, Harry Groener, Wendie Malick, and Austin Pendleton.
The Burton sisters of Five Sisters Productions
(Maria, Jennifer, Ursula, Gabrielle and Charity) are partnering
with Habitat for Humanity to contribute to communities as the film
is released in theaters over the next year. Though it is an unusual
move for a production company, Five Sisters feels very strongly
about community involvement and social responsibility. MANNA FROM
HEAVEN is about a community coming together and, in the process,
rediscovering hope. Five Sisters Productions will donate their portion
of the proceeds from the first evening screening in each new market
to Habitat For Humanity International.
Throughout MANNA FROM HEAVEN’s
opening weekend in each market, the filmmakers will be available
for question & answer sessions at special affiliate screenings
& local affiliate fund-raisers, visit local affiliate jobsites,
and do interviews on behalf of the film and local Habitat affiliates.
They are also available phone interviews at anytime. The Burtons
are committed to working their partnership with HfHI and the local
affiliates into each radio, television and print interview.
MANNA IS A HIT FROM COAST TO COAST!
MANNA FROM HEAVEN held its world Premiere in Branson, Missouri the
first week in August and opened in Kansas City two weeks later.
Public response to the film was remarkable. MANNA was expanded into
other theaters (highly unusual for an independent film -- most of
which play one or two weeks in a specialized art house theater),
and ran for eight weeks. MANNA has had successful multiple-week
runs, often for 2+ months, in Branson, MO, Kansas City KS &
MO, Washington, DC, Buffalo, NY, LA, and San Diego. All this through
AMC is enthusiastic about the success
and potential of MANNA FROM HEAVEN and is in the process of developing
a National AMC Marketing Campaign.
