About the movie...

New Line Cinema’s horror thriller “IT,” directed by Andrés Muschietti (“Mama”), is based on the hugely popular Stephen King novel of the same name, which has been terrifying readers for decades.

When children begin to disappear in the town of Derry, Maine, a group of young kids are faced with their biggest fears when they square off against an evil clown named Pennywise, whose history of murder and violence dates back for centuries.

“IT” stars Bill Skarsgård (“Allegiant,” TV’s “Hemlock Grove”) as the story’s central villain, Pennywise. An ensemble of young actors also star in the film, including Jaeden Lieberher (“Midnight Special”), Jeremy Ray Taylor (“Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip”), Sophia Lillis (“37”), Finn Wolfhard (TV’s “Stranger Things”), Wyatt Oleff (“Guardians of the Galaxy”), Chosen Jacobs (upcoming “Cops and Robbers”), Jack Dylan Grazer (“Tales of Halloween”) and Nicholas Hamilton (“Captain Fantastic”).

Muschietti is directing “IT” from a screenplay adapted by Chase Palmer & Cary Fukunaga and Gary Dauberman. Dan Lin, Roy Lee, Seth Grahame-Smith, David Katzenberg and Barbara Muschietti are producing, with Marty P. Ewing, Doug Davison and Jon Silk serving as executive producers.

The behind-the-scenes creative team includes director of photography Chung-Hoon Chung (“Me and Earl and the Dying Girl”), production designer Claude Paré (“Rise of the Planet of the Apes”), editor Jason Ballantine (“The Great Gatsby”), and costume designer Janie Bryant (TV’s “Mad Men”). A presentation of New Line Cinema, “IT” will be released worldwide beginning September 8, 2017, by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Entertainment Company.

The film industry was superbly represented by Gary French, head of production at ABC, Costume designer Karyn Wagner, Composer Brahm Wenger, and Actors Studio's Mark Kemble.

"We are honored to have the opportunity to present our documentary to the Hollywood industry. Uno a Uno is about economic development. Puerto Rico is losing 1 billion dollars a year as a result of the school dropout epidemic. We hope school districts take note. Involving the community guarantees that the impossible will be possible. I salute community activist Nilda Prieto for her contributions in making a better world said Quiñones while being interviewed on the red carpet.

The unforgettable night kicked-off with a star-studded red carpet followed by the screening and a Q&A session with Director Noel Quiñones.

Uno a Uno is in the run to be included in the Academy Awards For Your Consideration documentary short list.
