“FANNING THE FLAMES”
Written and directed by Robert Rivenbark
Iraqi war vet and exotic dancer attempt to save each other—from themselves.
Katya, a ballerina reduced to stripping, and Bryce, a traumatized soldier just back from Iraq, struggle to save one another—from themselves. Their lives collide with a strip club manager enslaved by Russian Mafiosi, an on-the-skids real estate developer, and a burned out advertising executive struggling with her sexual identity. All must overcome crippling self-delusions, or die trying.
