Production Description

Takeshi Fukunaga (dir.) is casting "Out of My Hand," a feature film about Cisco, who works as a tree tapper on a rubber plantation in Liberia, West Africa. Through a chance visit from a distant New York City-based cousin, he negotiates a way to move to America, with an eye toward attaining a better life for himself and his family. Amongst a sea of culturally shocking encounters in Staten Island, he also meets two Liberians from vastly disparate worlds than his own—one is a former child soldier and the other a wealthy businessman—both of whom, in their own ways, lead him to confront his own sense of self and belonging.
