Our mission is to produce compelling and important projects that provide opportunities for the under-served in the film industry while closing the gender pay gap.
Equality in Filmmaking
Imprisoned is a unique story set in Puerto Rico and centers on the themes of love, redemption, revenge and forgiveness. It stars Laurence Fishburne, Juan Pablo Raba, Juana Acosta, Jon Huertas, Esai Morals, Edward James Olmos, and John Heard. The film was written and directed by Paul Kampf and produced by Equitas Entertainment Partners, whose mission is to make a social impact, give a voice to the under-served while closing the gender pay gap in front of and behind the camera.
Equitas Entertainment Partners believes films can have a positive social impact by exploring facets of lives often overlooked and also by the manner in which we make our films. Our model endeavors to prove that stories can be entertaining, thought provoking, socially responsible and fiscally profitable. Gender pay equality matched with opportunities for the under-represented in front of and behind the camera makes a more rounded work environment and serves the project at every level.
In the thriller, IMPRISONED, Dylan Burke (Juan Pablo Raba), attempts to move on from his former life as a criminal, with his true love, Maria (Juana Acosta). He soon realizes that his past will continue to haunt him, when he learns the new local prison warden, Daniel Calvin (Laurence Fishburne), has not forgiven him for an old crime.
Calvin does everything in his power to make sure that Burke pays for his past mistakes, even going as far as to frame him for a murder he didn’t commit, landing him back in jail. When the prison erupts into a riot, Burke and Calvin are each forced to make a choice between righteousness and revenge.
