Promiseland NYC Premiere

On Saturday, I went to the NYC premiere of Promise Land – a movie about broken promises and the pursuit of happiness. The premiere was at the AMC movie theater right in Times Square, which was super cool! The movie revolves around some of the most pressing issues that we are facing today – immigration, homosexuality, and racial stereotyping. I got a chance to speak with the director/write, Kevin Dalvi, at the after-party and he told me they shot the movie in 20 days – something I would’ve never guessed! The movie is extremely well-made. Immigration is a topic that has been in the spotlight lately, and this movie sheds brilliant light on the misconceptions and lack of knowledge that surround this issue. Even while tackling some really serious issues, the film manages to be entertaining – it delivered laughs and tears (I had to constantly remind myself that my eyeliner wasn’t waterproof!) I highly recommend checking out Promiseland!

Unfortunately, I was stuck in traffic and so, I missed the red carpet. But, here’s what I wore to the event

See my stuff in the bottom right corner? I can’t believe I put my bag on the floor, at a NYC subway station! The back of the dress was black mesh and I also wore my leather bomber with it when I was outside (sorry, don’t have pictures with the bomber on!)
