Film Adaptation Of The Novel "And Yet, You Still Chose Me" To Be Filmed In Savannah
Critically acclaimed novel, "And Yet, You Still Chose Me," will be made into a movie, with full release to theaters in 2012. Directed by independent film-maker Perla Faye Humphrey, this raw and riveting account of a young girl's difficult journey through life will surely be as compelling and irresistible as the novel itself, inspired by co-author Kimberly Ray's life story.
PR9.NET September 21, 2010 - Atlanta, GA - Onyx Pearl is pleased to announce the feature film adaptation of the novel "And Yet, You Still Chose Me", by co-author Kimberly Ray, will be filmed in Savannah next summer.

But one dreadful night, the unimaginable takes place that spirals her innocent world into mayhem, rips her family apart, and catapults her on a self-destructive journey into womanhood as the barriers to a better life stack against her, and going to college becomes an elusive goal.
Principal photography for the film is scheduled to begin in May/June of 2011.
