Morning After– Film – U. S. Premiere, August 12th at 7:15 PM Eastern Rhode Island International Film Festival
Morning After, a film about the “No Labels” generation has just released their teaser trailer. Award-winning filmmaker Patricia Chica and writer-actor Kristian Hodko team up to deliver an enlightening short produced by Byron A. Martin. The film has been selected from over 6,000 submissions from more than 60 countries to be a part of the Flickers’ Rhode Island International Film Festival.
Morning After is featured as part of this year’s Official Competition, and is in contention for the Grand Prize for Best Short Film, which is an Academy Qualifier award.
Morning After is a bold and playful drama that explores the subject of sexual fluidity and human desire. After a long time abroad, a young man returns home and reunites with friends. A sensual game amongst them forces him to confront deep conflicts within himself that lead to a powerful awakening.
“After spending the last decade delving into darker subject-matter and working on genre films, I strongly felt the need to switch gears and speak about something lighter and profound at the same time. I have always been very intrigued by human sexual expression,” says director Patricia Chica.
Morning After stars five bright rising actors – Thomas Vallières (Game of Death), Zoé de Grand Maison (Orphan Black), Joey Scarpellino (The Parents), Jordana Lajoie (Patrice Lemieux 24/7) and Kristian Hodko (The Howling: Reborn) who also wrote the script.

Chocolate has never tasted this good.
After a long time abroad, a young man returns home and reunites with friends. A sensual game amongst them forces him to confront deep conflicts within himself that lead to a powerful awakening.
Michael just came back to his hometown after spending two years abroad. His friend Edward has organized a welcome party in his honor. While only knowing Edward, Michael quickly becomes friendly with the rest of the gang as they get involved in a provocative game of chocolate tasting and French-kissing.
The openness of the group makes Michael come face to face with a dilemma he’s had for quite some time; of not only questioning his own sexuality, but the notion of sexual identity as a whole, and are labels really necessary?
