Local Actor And Movie Director Of The Way Forward Returns From The UK With Two Winnings
Locally produced movie, The Way Forward, bags the Best English Language Feature Film and Best Supporting Actor at the World Independent Film Awards in the United Kingdom

The Way Forward has continued to attract the attention of major stakeholders in the movie industry and the locally produced project recently won Best English Language Feature Film and Best Supporting Actor at the World Independent Film Awards. The local actor Yury Tsykun and movie director, Roman Jaquez, from Capital District, Albany, New York returned from the United Kingdom with two winnings from five award nominations.

The movie has an amazing plot chronicling the story of a Russian psychologist and his ordeals experimenting for soon-to-be-released findings in his new book on forgiveness. Inspired by Sidney Lumet’s “12 Angry Men” and by John Hughes’s “The Breakfast Club,” the experimental feature film looks at the experience of seven strangers participating in a pay or play deal around the Good Doctor’s upstate dining room table, where they are challenged to forgive their fathers, after responding to a New York advertisement.

The Way Forward has been screened across the globe, including Europe and North America, with dozens of nominations and many wins such as Best US Drama at the World Film Fair in 2019. It was nominated in five different categories at the World Independent Film Awards – Best English Language Feature Film, Best Original Screenplay In A Feature Film, Best Director In An English Feature Film, Best Cinematography In A Feature Film, and Best Supporting Actor In An English Feature Film and winning Best English Language Feature Film and Best Supporting Actor.

Roman Jaquez worked with an amazing cast of actors, including Kit Vinsick, Kevin Craig West, Kyrsten St. Pierre, John Hauff, Virginia Lee, and Paul Michael Draper.
