Pellegrino, who played the role of the director of photography in the film, first met Narine-Singh last August at the Cinema Arts Centre in Huntington’s Youth Advisory Board meeting, which brings people ages 16 to 21 together who have a passion for film to discuss ways of getting more young adults interested in cinema. Pellegrino said he and Narine-Singh quickly became friends and when Pellegrino got word of Redemption he knew he wanted to be a part of it. When Narine-Singh asked him if he wanted a role, it didn’t take long for Pellegrino to agreed to join the cast.
Other cast members include Alexia Anastaiso, Glenn Andreiev, Olivia Brown and Carrie Fischetti. Pellegrino said it was a good environment on set because he already knew some of his fellow cast members and got the chance to make some new friends as well.
The film, which Narine-Singh said, “questions our moral responsibilities” will be screened on Sunday, Feb. 3 at the Cinema Arts Centre in Huntington. It’s approximately 10 minutes long. The event is invite-only, but those interested in attending can reach out to Narine-Singh at www.Facebook.com/remdemptionfilmfilm to request an invitation. Narine-Singh said the cast has invited friends, family and teachers to the screening, to which he said he’s both excited and nervous. He already has his next film project in mind, and said he looks forward to working with many of the same actors again.
