Brianna Brown is proud of her dear friend Angela Matemotja for receiving ‘Female Pioneer Award’ honor beside ‘Independent Film Pioneer Award’ winners Mira Sorvino, Rosanna Arquette and Malcolm McDowell, who all starred in prominent films at the DTLA Film Festival. Brianna is also honored to be a part of this important story as an actress and producer. Elevate addresses important issues within our culture around racism, homophobia, verbal abuse, drug abuse, overeating, #MeToo and ultimately healing.
ELEVATE follows the story of Trina, an overweight elevator switchboard operator who desperately tries to accomplish just one day of healthy eating. Overwhelmed by her abusive boss and by the trapped elevator occupants that reach out to her for help, her fitness guru provides the inspiration and escape that she craves – or does she? Ultimately, all of the occupants in this trapped world find themselves caught face-to-face with their inner demons.
