"Steel Toes Marching into Festivals"


March 8, 2007, THOUSAND OAKS, CA monterey media is delighted to announce that its most recent theatrical release, Steel Toes, is kicking off the spring film festival circuit with a thundering howl. The gritty and poignant piece has been Officially Selected into the Beverly Hills Film Festival, the Tiburon International Film Festival, the USA Film Festival, the Ashland International Film Festival, and the Method Fest.

Starring Academy AwardŽ nominee David Strathairn (Good Night, and Good Luck) and Andrew Walker, Steel Toes follows Mike Downey (Walker), a neo-nazi skinhead, through the dark alleys of Canada and into the blackest regions of his own heart as he is tried for the murder of an East Indian dishwasher. Guiding him through this journey is liberal Jewish defense attorney Danny Dunkelman (Strathairn), who must struggle past his own preconceptions of the disturbed young man. Together, Mike and Danny form a turbulent alliance and battle through generations of hate to discover the power of forgiveness.

The film has already won a Best Actor award from the Whistler Film Festival for Andrew Walker's portrayal of Mike, the neo-Nazi skinhead. In the LA area and available for interviews, internationally renowned playwright and writer director David Gow will attend and speak at the Beverly Hills Film Festival and the Ashland Film Festival where Steel Toes is bound to bring audiences to their feet.
