The Blackout - Daniela De Carlo - Rob Belushi

Friendships do strengthen and blossom during times of disaster. One night during a disaster will change certain relationships altogether.

In the indie drama The Blackout, a group of friends are trapped inside a New York City apartment as Hurricane Sandy swept into the area. With the loss of power and torrential rains outside, the friends find activities to pass the time and strengthen their bonds through the night. As the night progresses, they discover joys, heartaches, and the pleasures of human connections with themselves and their neighbors inside the building.

The film stars Leah Henoch (Plus One), Hillary Anne Matthews (Future Man), Tess Paras (Crazy Ex-Girlfriend), Alexander Chard (Vida), Avi Rothman (Wonder Woman 1984), Matt Kane (Auggie), Joslyn Jensen (Without), Brandon Kyle Goodman (Feel the Beat), Robert Belushi (Chicago P.D), Marc Underhill (The Visitor), and Patty Guggenheim (Florida Girls). Daniela De Carlo wrote and directed the movie.
