Our latest MPI original short, Moving Violation, was just accepted into the Manchester Film Festival and the D.C. Independent Film Festival. Written and directed by MPI-supported filmmaker Laura Waters Hinson (Dog Days, Mama Rwanda), Moving Violation film depicts a jilted bride who finally faces the truth about her ex-fiancé after a newly-installed speed camera on her street pushes her to the edge.
